Bio and Links
August, 2017
I will have limited computer access during August. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

Recently had my DNA tested and it verified that I am almost 50/50 Finnish and Irish heritage.
* * *
When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

Re: Birdine Anderson
Hi thanks for doing this. Birdie was my great grandmother's sister (Nellie Mae Binning)

As far as I know of Birdie did not marry or have children. She did homestead at Conrad Montana. She was born in Wisconsin not Kansas. That is incorrect.

I'm sorry Ann, What I meant to say is that you had created the first memorial and I created another. I'm learning new ways of searching for my relatives. Thank you for creating his memorial.

Two Memorials
Hello Ann,
I am new to Find A Grave and I hope you'll forgive me. I found that you had created a memorial for Thomas (my uncle) after I had created another. My memorial is 180474974. I'll be happy to proceed in whatever way you suggest.
Thank you,

# 97203679 Emma Craig
I was wondering the name "Bacon" was attached to my great great grandmother Emma Darling Craig. My family has records and her maiden name was Darling, not Bacon. I have attached a link to her son, Don Darwin Craig's death certificate which shows her maiden name as Darling.
Thanks. Chris Clauson

I finally received my great grandparents transfer and I am in the process of moving my data. I have requested a link to my new site for his father, but have not completed his mother. Didn't want to confuse you with the edit.
