Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Joe Young. I have been interested in my family geneology for many years now and I have found a few family graves on here that have really helped. In my spare time, though, I like to help other people to find their relatives. I like to get out in the woods and in hard to reach, or long walking distance cemeteries. Any time I take a trip somewhere, I will be checking for cemeteries along the way and if someone needs a photo taken in that cemetery, well, I will be there, so there is no telling where I might be one time or another. This is an amazing and helpful site and I hope everyone can benefit from it as I have. Thanx for looking.

If you have any questions for me, please contact me at

Please post her information for me. I would like to know if you are related to her and how. If you are we are related also. Laura Bright who was her mother is my great Aunt and I have pictures of her from my mother.
Thank you so much. It's nice to see new volunteers getting involved. Keeping the memory of our ancestors is so important.

Young request
Good evening. Next weekend we will be going over to Newton County to a family reunion. I will walk the cemetery. Ethel Young is my great aunt. She is buried at Swain, and I didn't realize she had a baby buried at Hickory. I will try and get pictures.
God Bless,

Hi there fellow volunteer,

Maude is my first cousin twice removed. I have many pictures of her grandmother and family. I know she was born in June but haven't finished my research on her. Thanks for inputting her. How are you related? If you have no closer relationship could you please transfer her to me?

Thanks so much.
