Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future|
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.
NOTE-NOTE-NOTE: I am one of many contributors who no longer (knowingly) links to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Please try to discover the final disposition before making an entry.
NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos. IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Names of personal interest to me (for one reason or another) are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families.
Other surnames of interest are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them.

|Don Richey||RE: Chapman Cemetery|
I finally finished adding all the pictures I took at Chapman Cemetery in Autauga County, AL. Sorry I kept you so busy with memorial edits, but if I saw something wrong I tried to correct it or add additional information as I uploaded photos. Photographing the 900 plus head or foot stones wasn't so bad. Entering the pictures to Find a Grave was the hard part. The advertisements kept popping up and slowing my up and downloads. I created a lot of new memorials while entering the data of people buried since "Cemetery Walker" came through in 2006. If you are interested in maintaining them let me know I will transfer them to you since I am not related to any of them. Don Richey #48639408

Hi, Deb, I teach 6th and 7th graders, but would only be taking about half a dozen students. We are located in Lufkin, but I would be willing to travel up to an hour away. Thanks!

I'm a teacher in Angelina County, and my students have been researching their anscestry the last few weeks. As a side project, I thought it would be great fun to go to a local cemetery and record information to send to "find a grave." I was wondering, since you have recorded so many graves with the county, if you could suggest where we should go? Every cemetery I've looked up, it seems you have already provided all the information, which is amazing! Do you, by any chance, know of any cemeteries within the area that could use our help recording gravestone information for the site?
I thank you for your time!
