Thought for the day: If you're waiting for your chance to win the lottery, take a look at some of these headstones where the person lived a few decades, a few years, a few months or even just a few hours and then you'll realize you're already the big winner.|
I've been doing general genealogy for a little over a year now (as of August '09). I get pictures of headstones here and there hoping it will help somebody somewhere and I consider it an honor to post cemetery information of the men and women that served this great land called the United States of America.
I've taken cemetery pictures in 39 states, DC, Canada, England and the Bahamas. My favorite place for pics is definitely (southern) Louisiana.
Some of the surnames in my tree include Thompson, Liles, Southards, Chester, Stacks, Causey, Shipp and McDaniel.
The (famous) ancestor that I am most proud of is King Robert (the Bruce) I of Scotland.
UPDATE: April/2012 (I almost made it three years without putting some sort of gripe in my bio) - If you're going to ask for a transfer, please don't use some cheap excuse like, "I would like to link them to my family" or "I would like to make updates". Any knucklehead can do those things. Just ask for the transfer and I'll probably do it. I generally don't even care about the transfer guidelines. Honesty is more important. Just say (something along the lines of), "They are directly or indirectly related to me and I would like to have them."
Gripe #2 (July 2012) - Please don't post death certificates where you are supposed to put pictures of the person and headstone. Send a SAC with the birth and/or death information and parents if available. About the only thing left is what they died of and do we really need to know that?!?!

Thanks, Cam. Maybe, you will find him. It seems like a formidable task since I don't even know what New Orleans cemetery he is buried in.
|carole taylor puntenney||RE: Vicksburg Ntl Cem|
oh... well thank you for taking the time for that one.

Hi, thank you first for the great photos. I was wondering if you could help me find Pvt. David Rude..you did the photo for Gilbert Rude. so I was in hopes that you might be able to VERIFY that David Rude is also there? He is not a relative I am doing research for Company G 33rd Illinois, men. Here is another one of the men and he has no photo either.

|Mary H. Askew||James David Brannan (1868-1912)|
Hello Mr. Thompson ... A curious coincidence. In the cemetery where my ggf James Clarence Brannan (1837-1899) is buried, is a marker a few plots over for James David Brannan, b Mar 27, 1868, d Jan 21 1912. I've wondered if this man was part of our family so started a search for him and came up with your Find A Grave entry #77960621. // The strange thing is, the photo I took of that marker in 2005 in the Alvarado-Balch Cemetery in Alvarado (Johnson Co) TX is identical to the photo in your entry for him in the Old Southland Cemetery in Grand Prairie. Can you possibly unscramble this puzzle? I'm happy to email my photos to you if you'd kindly reply to me at email@example.com ... Thanks! Mary H. Askew

Sent obit to other memorial to document the name and and birth/death dates.
Will delete mine when theirs is updated.
Thanks for the information.
You created a memorial page for Winifred Liebscher (wife of Edward Liebscher). You have listed Winifred's maiden name as Mahoney, but this is incorrect. Mahoney was her mother's maiden name. She was the daughter of Joseph E. Carr and Mary A. Mahoney; her maiden name was Carr. She can be found in the 1900 and 1910 census living in her father's household (Joseph Carr). Also, the California death index lists her mother's maiden name as Mahoney. Also her affidavit for marriage license lists her father as Joseph Edward Carr and her mother as Mary Mahoney.

|Tangent||RE: Margaret Masilio Giambrone Puloma|
I'm afraid that you may have missed the actual point of the edit I sent.
The edit was not to change the maiden name from "Masilio Giambrone" to "Masilio" AND to change the surname frrom "Puloma" to "Giambrone Puloma". I sent the maiden name edit only. The name Giambrone,which is apparently from a first marriage (judging by her son's surname), is not appropriate for any of the name fields.
The site naming conventions (for non-famous memorials) are that only ONE name belongs in each name field. The surname from a first marriage, when the deceased used a different surname at the time of death, does *not" belong in *any* name field.
Quoting from https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=Naming+conventions&page=listFaqs#147
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links."
Accordingly, I am resending the name edit and also sending an "Other" edit with a potential phrasing about her name for the bio field.
Thanks for understanding that the site rules sometimes get in the way of what seems appropriate to us as contributors.
