|Bio and Links|
|I have read some pretty anger filled bios on here about people taking credit for photos they didn't take and work they didn't do. But then I look at THEIR pictures and find pictures of MY ancestors graves... some of which are located in cemeteries not even known to the general public.... so where did YOU get YOUR pictures? ! If you got permission to use them, why did you not credit the person that gave the photo to you? Wouldn't just adding a credit help cut down on some of the anger on here? |
Now, having said my piece... here is a bit of info about me.
I live in Georgia. When I was young, Daddy would get us all in the car on Sundays and we'd go for drives. He'd take us on backroads to show us places he knew when he was young. We also visited 'graveyards' and learned about our history that way. In high school, I had a class called 'American Folklore'. Part of the class was to bring in a 'project' along with a report which we were to present to class. The teacher made up a small list of example topics. It included the usual 'my grandmothers apron/butter churn', my grandfather's straight razor/musket' type thing. But I was the weird kid---I chose cemeteries. So I used those Sunday drives to draw pictures of old headstones and the old 'sayings' from them. (Some of them were quite sad, other's quite comical). Yeah, all the other kids went 'ewwww! you like going in graveyards?". Yeah== and == I got an A.. hehehehe. Neither my Daddy or I are able to go in the cemeteries every Sunday these days, but we still do go when we are able.
Most of the pictures and information I have here is concerning my ancestors. They are not complete listings of every grave in every cemetery I have listed.
