I am not a collector of memorials - the number means nothing to me if I don't know who the person is and something of their life. I am a family history researcher.
The only memorials that I seek, maintain, and keep are memorials of those people that are my relatives or the relatives of my husband.
I welcome corrections/additions within reason. In effort to maintain accuracy I ask that you not waste your time or mine and only submit information that can be proven with a verifiable source. Please provide that source when asking for corrections/additions.
It is a violation of Find A Grave policy, to copy my photos without written permission. "Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use." When asking permission to use any of my photos, please tell me how you intend to use them.
When I just a little girl, I use to love to visit the cemetery and take all the flowers that I could carry in my arms, to place on the grave sites of my family members, some of them I had never met.
Now, there are so many of our combined family at the "cemetery" that I could never have enough flowers to leave for them all but, I still visit when I am able and I treasure that special quiet time of reflection of those I still hold dear to my heart.
These are all part of my family...these are all part of my own personal legacy.
