|Bio and Links|
I am now a ninety three year old mother, grandmother, gr-grandmother, and a gr-gr-grandmother. On my 80th birthday my grandkids were ask to share what they remember about grandma. Because I realized they didn't know much about their ancestors, I decided to write down what I remembered of the stories that were told to me as I was growing up. That lead me to contact the Sequoia Genealogical Society. |
Volunteers taught me how to find more than 100 years of local family history from the Tulare City Libraries Genealogical Collection.
One volunteer, a retired school teacher taught me, fourth grade style, how to search the Internet on the computer. That year my daughter and grand children gave me a computer for Christmas, and I was off and flying and now I added Find a Grave to my activities.
I am now a self appointed family historian who has been doing research on my own extended family, and that of my friends,
Seen on another contributor's profile. I couldn't agree more.
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.
When you visit one of my memorials please leave a flower. I appreciate it when you say what relation, if any, to a person.
Because of my age I would like to transfer some of my memorials. For many of them, I am not a direct descendant, and I prefer to transfer to direct descendants. There are a few occasions where I will make an exception. I will not make any transfers unless you leave a flower and a note.

Mrs. Hoffman, I just read your Findagrave bio. My hat's off to you!!
You recently sent me two edits for Mary Ann (Heil) Gunster. I have not yet acted on them. While I am not a "hard-core" stickler about genealogy research for non-family members, can you tell me your source(s) for the birth and death locales you sent as edits?
Thank you, Laura Cates Duncan
|Jody Cook B.||RE: Ralph B Morrow|
Thank you. There is a Donald Morrow buried right beside Ralph. Donald was born in 1946 and passed in 1971. It appears from Annabelle's obituary that he was their son. If he was related to you, I am happy to transfer this memorial to you.

This can't possibly be the Charles that married Melinda Higginbotham. He was born in about 1809 and this Charles was born in about 1837. The wrong family is attached to this person.

The shadows are not letting me get a good picture of Ralph's name on the Morrow marker. I live nearby, and intend to go over there earlier in the day and hope for better lighting. I should have a picture within a week.
|Lynn||RE: John MacCubbin|
Thank you for the prompt response. I understand completely. Thank you just the same.

|Linda Rhoadarmer||RE: Margaret Owens|
I changed her name. I am glad you knew. I could not find anything on Familysearch that showed her middle name as Ann. Linda
|Linda Rhoadarmer||Margaret Owens|
Why do you believe that her middle name is Ann instead of the "P" that I have? Her headstone has "P" on it. LOL Linda
|Renae🌷||The wrong photo on William Hawkins page|
Hi Audrey, Someone uploaded the original photo on William Hawkins memorial page. Here's the url
The original shows that the photo you uploaded is not a photo of William Hawkins. Could you take a look? I think the photo you uploaded probably needs to be deleted.

|Jim Fenn-Lawson||RE: Julia Abigail Allen Clark|
You're welcome. I'll take another picture the next time I'm down that way. The sun was directly in front of the camera. JIM
|John Holle||RE: John & Elizabetta Lancione|
I am so sorry. I sent the message to you thinking you were the originator of the pages but you are the person who requested the photos.
I have fixed it. My apologies.
