I found findagrave.com when I ran a google search on my sister's name after she passed away. I contacted the person who put up her memorial to correct some details and he offered for me to manage her page. I really didn't know what it meant at that time but I've become slightly obsessed with this site since then and am proud to say I completed my first photo requests today :)|
Helping others locate their loved ones graves somehow brings me closer to my sister and since her cemetery is about 1800 miles away and I cannot visit - this gives me some amount of peace.

|Lois Blackburn||Mary Bradbury d1700 photo|
I am a member of Find A Grave here in Salisbury MA and the other day I was in the Old Burying Ground. The historical commissioner (if that is his title) was there and he told me that the photo is the wrong Mary Bradbury.
I know the stone is really hard to see and is mostly sunken and buried but he knows that it is the stone for a Mary Bradbury bur.1793 at age 46 yrs. Wife of Thomas, who was the son of William and the grandson of the original Thomas.
She is not a Perkins, not convicted of witchcraft. So the photo of the stone needs to be removed and maybe it could be placed with the correct Mary?
I don't know if I should give out his email addres here but mine is email@example.com and I can connect you with him to verify the facts. Lois

|momof2||Trying to contact Erik's Family|
I knew Erik when he lived in Dallas, TX. We were Technical Recruiters together. We used to hang out all the time for fun and work, until he moved back east. I lost touch with him after that.
A very long time ago he wrote a bunch of poems that he put into a book. He asked me to read them and give him feedback. I thought I had given the book back to him, but I just found it. In a search to give him his book back, I found out that he had passed away. I would like help trying to reach his family to give my condolences and to give them this part of Erik.

|MaryK4d4||RE: My sister's Memorial|
My sister lives with our dad who has dementia. A couple weeks ago I was looking through the cabinet that has always held the family cookbooks and had a flashback from my childhood. Di is 9 years older than I am and I remember watching her make popcorn balls. She always made us stand back because she didn't want us to get burned by the hot syrup. I'd watch her drop the syrup from a spoon into water to check to see if it is at the right stage. I thought my big sister is so smart. I thought I was the luckiest girl on the block because my big sister was so smart.
Well I left her a note on her bedroom door that Sunday. I told her exactly what I just told you. It is something that I had never told her and I thought that she might think it's silly but I don't want to regret not telling her. When she found the note she called me and told me that she's framing it.
When I was reading your sister's memorial I cried with you. It is a beautiful tribute to her.
Try and have a Merry Christmas. I'm thinking she would want you to.

Thank you for leaving a token on Seamus memorial.
|Robin Parker||RE: corrections|
My line of Parkers left Chelmsford in 1749. Other Parkers in Chelmsford are distant cousins who stayed.
I have over 12,000 listings. I don't look up find-a-grave numbers, nor do I read the headstones. I have too many correctons each day to do this. Provide Find A Grave numbers and dates or your Find A Grave number with their numbers.
Hi - the Lupien's that you have listed (Albert, Evelyn and Elaine) are long time family friends - I'm not asking that you transfer them to me . . . unless you want to ...but since the birth info is on the headstones would you please at least add that?
|Jim McMahon||Father Mychal Judge|
The remarks you left on Father Mychal Judge's memorial were beautiful. Thank you.
