Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am now a ninety three year old mother, grandmother, gr-grandmother, and a gr-gr-grandmother. On my 80th birthday my grandkids were ask to share what they remember about grandma. Because I realized they didn't know much about their ancestors, I decided to write down what I remembered of the stories that were told to me as I was growing up. That lead me to contact the Sequoia Genealogical Society.

Volunteers taught me how to find more than 100 years of local family history from the Tulare City Libraries Genealogical Collection.

One volunteer, a retired school teacher taught me, fourth grade style, how to search the Internet on the computer. That year my daughter and grand children gave me a computer for Christmas, and I was off and flying and now I added Find a Grave to my activities.

I am now a self appointed family historian who has been doing research on my own extended family, and that of my friends,

Seen on another contributor's profile. I couldn't agree more.

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

I treat a memorial just like it were the actual cemetery, and I leave a flower or acknowledgment. When you visit one of my memorials please leave a flower. It is not necessary for you to say that you are a relation, but I appreciate it when you do.

Because of my age I would like to transfer some of my memorials. For many of them, I am not a direct descendant, and I prefer to transfer to direct descendants. There are a few occasions where I will make an exception. I will not make any transfers unless you leave a flower and a note.

RE: Lassie Fern Sims Sheridan 156594995
That will be fine.
Aunt Fern was married to my dad's brother Frank.

Fern was the sweetest person, always nice.

Thank you Kath,

I have a correction of a photo on the memorial of William Roy Trice ll memorial # 42686386

The photo states that it is Uncle Roy and Ina Pearl Smith Trice. I am the niece of Ina Pearl and this is not her photo. Perhaps it is his second wife Bessie Lorene Jones?

Thanks for listening

Thank you Audrey, was hoping you were another long lost relative of my wide ranging and very large family.

I added a newspaper clipping to their memorials from their 50th wedding anniversary. It includes a photo.

Elizabeth Katherine Bost Myers 65350008

Hello Ms. Hoffman,

Elizabeth was my Great Grand Aunt, was wondering how you came by a picture of her that you posted on her memorial.

Thanks for the work you do on Find A Grave, I hope all is well with you,

Mistake & Explination, Possible Help Though!
Dear Maam,
I was at the Elizabeth Cemetery near me, walked 45 minutes to get there, but as I was there only got a few photographs. Now, I claimed plenty of requests there and as I was there the locals around the cemetery, "ghetto folks" got into and argument and a gunfight spread from the road into the cemetery, I hid behind a headstone and managed to get back. Although, this wasn't targeted at me I feared due to the way it was going, if they were off a bit I could have been hit. Very sorry for the mis-claim but the last photo I took was of "MATHILDA PENN" and from the spot next to her was a older stone, less taken care off. The claim was for William Penn, but possibly she can be something to help? Send reply if the Matilda Penn can help you.
Thank You, Audrey Hoffman, So Much for Understanding!
