|Dorothy Varnell||RE: Howdy!|
I expect that Kenneth spent time with Joe and Allean too, but his childhood memories don't include anywhere near the number and quality of memories you can include in a bio. The FAQs over in "Help With Find A Grave" are helpful in some areas and vague in others, but a bio is just that, with whatever you'd like to share about her. Bios vary widely, some folks just do bare facts, like occupation, number of children and siblings, cause of death, and the like, while others are full of memories and anecdotes.
If you ask OkieBran for custody of any memorials, he manages a passel of memorials and it may be a few days or even weeks before he gets back to you, but he will. Use the SACs to ask for memorials, click on edit at the top right corner of the memorial and then click on suggest a correction. Put in the field that pops up your relationship to the deceased, and if you'd like managership Or any info you'd like added to the memorial if it is out of guidelines - and be sure to check the box that says to send you a copy of the email! That way if you don't get a response after 30 days you can easily forward the whole thing to edit@ and let Find A Grave's admin do the transfer/add info for you. Most managers will respond to you as soon as they can, but sometimes of course real life strikes and they can't.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask, and if I or whoever can't answer (or I'm being clear as mud), take the question to the Forums - you'll get the fastest answer there. And by the by, in the Forums the Cemetery and Genealogy section is a Godsend! Especially in the Surname threads, there are some people there with a world of experience in genealogy and a heap of resources, who will leave no stone unturned to help you trace somebody! And of course sites like Ancestry are invaluable for original documents, but beware of the family trees on them, some are excellently done but unfortunately some are not and are full of misinformation and guesses. Happy Hunting!
Give me a day or two to start sending the info I have on the Varnells. Hope it will give you a good start! In my "Kenneth's Side" Virtual Cemetery I have listed all of the Find A Grave memorials of his kin I have so far found - of course a lot of them are his Mom's folks, but you might find it interesting to dig through it for Varnells and their kin. Unfortunately, past a couple of generations beyond Marshal and Della, there are few Varnell memorials on here. Either the stones didn't survive or wherever they are hasn't been transcribed yet.
Good luck and hope you find genealogy as fun and rewarding as I have!
Hugs! - Dee☼
|Donna Lee Wall||RE: Joe and Allean|
I am getting over the flu right now so please give me till late in Jan. to get completely over it and find all my information and I will get back to you.
Around the 20th contact me again to remind me.
Donna Lee and David Wall
Welcome to Find A Grave!
I have the Varnell's traced back to the 1500s, and you might prefer I email the info I have as there is enough of it to make leaving it in notes here unpractical at best.
For Joe Varnell's Wall line your best bet is to contact his page's manager, Donna Lee: I have a lot on the Walls but I expect hers is in a more computer friendly format - I started doing genealogy back before the internet, and have it all on paper instead of my hard drive, and have felt daunted by the prospect of transferring All That onto disks.
By the by, my husband is Joe and Allean's nephew, his dad was Joe's brother Jack (Jesse Andris).
As I'm sure you've noticed in the FAQs, Allean is within the 4 generation transfer rule, and I am going to transfer her memorial to you. I don't manage the others and so can't transfer them, but all you need to do as far as the others are concerned is ask their managers for them, and so long as it is within those 4 generations of direct kinship the transfer is obligatory.
I'm sorry that I hadn't enough info on Allean to write her a proper biography, Kenneth knew her but apparently not that well. But with managership you can add a real bio for her!
Take care and God Bless! - Dee☼
