I am searching for my family. My parents were Donald Victor Carpenter and Nancy Jean Anderson Carpenter. I was born and raised in the Broadfording area of Hagerstown, Maryland. Names I am especially looking for are Carpenter, Hose, Anderson, Scott, Vanderau and Zimmerman, also their spouses and children.
I'm sick of people that think because they created the memorial on Find A Grave they "own" it and won't transfer it to "family." It seems to be a contest for some to "own" the most memorials. I've been asked numerous times to "prove" I'm related to someone. One was my own mother! Proof of relationship can't always be provided. Even the obituaries of grandparents, aunts and uncles don't mention every living relative. And a photo could be of anyone. Many times I've requested an obituary be added or a link to another family member be added to no avail. If you have thousands of memorials, you are not taking care of them all. Such as, listing new family that has passed, adding more information about the older ones or linking the new memorials to the other family members. Unlike so many, my goal is to connect "my" family and add information to their memorials making it easier for other family members (or friends) to find the person that has passed. Thank you to those that do the memorials for family to find and add or link them to their family. You're a blessing!
