Bio and Links

I really hope that we will have a choice between using the old format and the new format for this website, because I really do NOT like working with the new version.

My purpose in doing this is to see as many people who are no longer with us remembered and connected to their family members.

I DO believe in connecting those people to their relatives whether their place of burial is known or not. They existed, they are DEAD, and they also have a right to be remembered, and to be included with the rest of their family. They are still very important links in a family´s genealogy, especially as Find A Grave is tied to Ancestry--which makes it all the more important.

I do research the people that I add to Find A Grave as best I can---sometimes spending many hours to find info about them. I am not in this to try to see how many entries I can get, to compete with anyone, to play games, or to try to outdo anyone. What information I come up with, I dig up on my own. I do not go behind anyone´s back and take credit for anything that I didn´t find myself---and I wouldn´t do anything to discredit another person´s work unless they did something to REALLY deserve it, nor would I take credit away from someone else. Unfortunately it seems that everybody does NOT think like I do.

New site
I don't like the new site, either. And, I told them so.

Hello! You uploaded pictures of William H Cumbie and Elizabeth Guthrie, was wondering if you knew the address of the home in the photos and if you could point me in the direction of more information for the couple. Any help would be appreciated. (I know information could probably be easily found on ancestry, etc. but I do not pay for subscription websites) Thank you so much, Melissa

I am writing to ask permission to use the headstone photo for Daniel Coltrane in my family tree. I will give you credit (I always give the person credit that takes the picture) and list the Memorial # for FindaGrave. Please let me know. Thank you, Sharon
