"Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation." Lois Wyse (20th century)|
"Life is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others." S Pierce in memorial of "Woody" and Wilda Woodward.
I am a grandmother picking up the genealogy work started by my father, mother and uncle. Now, I am combining and elaborating on this work, linking my family genealogy (ancestors and descendents) and adding memorials for family and friends.
I assisted with the Centennial Chapter NSDAR project of photographing the headstones in Weld County Colorado. http://www.coloradodar.org/chapters/centennialstate/cemeteries.html
If you have family whose memorials I manage, I will be glad to transfer these to you. If you want to copy any of the photos I have posted, feel free to as long is it is not used for commercial purposes.
"Upon my death I authorize any of my memorials to be transferred to any FAG contributor as they are requested."

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."

Hi, you posted what seems to be a lovely photo of Alice Allen Tedmon 26157063 but the picture isn't showing up on the main page. I've had this happen to me when I wasn't posting .jpg files. I'm wondering if you can try to repost it when you get a chance, I'd love to be able to see her picture! Hortense 49208704

Very interesting comments on epidemics. My grandfather and grandmother Copeland lost their first 3 children to epidemics in Georgetown, CO but then were successful with four more. I've added photos for Peter Maciel, Sr. and Frances M. Maciel. See if they are what you had in mind.
|Robert Copeland||RE: Barbara Arnett|
Well, I think Karen does a great job at the cemetery office and Carol helps out when Karen is busy. Carol promptly checked the records and grave is indicated as marked. I couldn't find it, but I've been known to make dumb mistakes. Then again office staff are first to admit that cemetery records are definitely not perfect. Maybe someone else will have a go at it.

I am not related, I don't remember but probably on Ancestry.com

This whole "trip" started because I created a memorial for a Lee and was looking in BillionGraves (BG) to see if I could find the spouse there. I decided to add the Lees in BG in Humboldt County to Find A Grave. If I hadn't done that we wouldn't be having this "conversation". :-) I am happy to be able to transfer Charlotte to someone who has a connection to her even if it is distant.
I found Albert Lee listed as Valentina's (Val's) father on her Social Security Applications and Claims Index record. Perhaps she legally changed her name, too, or Albert adopted them?

Great chatting with you and good luck on finding Fernando/Ferdinand and anything on Albert Lee. Many of the listings spell Fernando's last name Alvares so if you haven't tried that it might turn up something.
