|Bio and Links|
I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.|
I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".
I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.
If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.
I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Thanks so much for fulfilling my two photo requests. I really appreciate you doing this for me.

Thank you so much for the great pictures of Kay's headstone. I appreciate your time and effort in taking and posting it!
Also I'd like to say that I love and appreciate your bio. Unlike many on this sight who add memorials, your's is very kind and willing to help in any way. There are many who state in their's they are not willing to transfer a memorial unless you are a "direct" relation (I know this is how Find A Grave states it, but that is
leaving it up to the person that posted the memorial, it doesn't say they can't) making me think they are in this for the numbers only! There are also many that state they will not post death certificates and/or obituaries. Such a shame to have this wonderful resource and so many are unwilling to be helpful.
Thank you for your love of helping others to be able to "meet" their ancestors with your help.

Sue: The other person had entered a photo that, at first glance, looked like she had stood back and took the photo but then she had sent another message to me that said she had put her clipboard on the spot where the grave marker would have been, plus she also made that comment in the comment section when she entered the photo. Then I understood what I saw. Now, whether there are other markers around, so that you can see their position in relation to hers, that is the question. It is your choice whether you want to go out to see if you can see other Gibbard markers nearby. I have sent an edit message to the memorial holder to add that there is no tombstone. I'll leave it up to you to decide, okay. If you decide not to, I'll understand. Christie

Sue: I am going to delete my request for a photo. As I was wading through old emails I found that the original photographer had sent me another message on my bio page that said there is no marker and what she had done was to put a clipboard on the spot, which is why the marker was "unreadable."
I am going to send an edit request to the memorial holder asking her to put a notation that there is no marker.
So, before you get your Saturday schedule ready, I am hoping that this catches you in time to stop you from going out to the cemetery -- though if it is a beautiful day - you could go for a picnic???
