Bio and Links
I have been doing research for over forty years and enjoy learning new things about various branches of our family.

The memorials I add or manage are either ancestors, close family members or people I have known most of my life in one way or another. I add as much information as possible to each memorial so it will be here for future generations.

Recently I have been adding memorials for people buried in older cemeteries & have seemed to be forgotten. I have also added memorials from old death certificates and then I go to Ancestry to locate as much for the memorial as possible. Without adding some family members or a little history for them it's very hard to tell if you have found the right person.

I do take photos of headstones when I visit the cemeteries and add them to the memorials. You are welcome to use my photos, as long as they are for your own records & not sold for profit. Whenever they are used on the public websites like please post source as to who took them, whether it be me or someone else.

I am happy to transfer memorials that follow the direct line rules as stated in the Findagrave Contributor tools, that is father, grandfather, great-grandfather & so on. I do for the most part transfer other memorials to cousins unless they are close members of my family or a close friend.

PLEASE! If you have corrections, additions or request transfers please use the edit button on the memorial page which is located above the photo. Then choose the suggest a correction/or addition hyperlink. I always try to do corrections as soon as possible and will give you credit for the addition.

I would appreciate additions to be done to the actual memorial rather than you adding it by the virtual flowers. Those are to be used as a gift for the deceased. Again, YOU will get credit for any additions. I like to keep the memorials as neat as possible. Thank you!

PLEASE DON'T PUT YOUR FULL TREE TO THE FLOWER MEMORIALS! If you would like to tell other family members just say they're an ancestor and you would like to meet other family members to exchange information. Thank you!

RE: Josephine Kindred
I think it's important to keep the memory of those who have passed alive, and to find these little stories in the newspapers help to do that. By all means, feel free to attach her obituary to her memorial. If you need it transcribed, I can do that, but you will need to send me the link back.

I'm impressed with the way you separate info on your memorials. (They look a lot like mine) Makes it easier to read. I wish everyone took more time on them.
