Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing research on my family since 1976 and am interested in documenting, preserving, and sharing the legacy of the extended family of myself and my husband. Creating memorials of our relatives is essential for the continuation of our family heritage, understanding, and knowledge of each other and where we all came from.

When I find a relative that has been added by another member I will send a request asking that they attach the member to his family so that future generations will find it easier to find their relatives.

I am much more interested in the completeness and accuracy of the information in the Memorials than I am in the number of Memorials I manage. Therefore, if anyone has any valid updates or important information that helps in making these memorials more accurate and complete, please let me know. I desire to manage the FAG Memorials of my family, my husbands family members and those of our friends.

I cross reference each of the Memorial numbers on FAG with the individuals in our genealogy software. This allows me to easily and quickly verify and find individuals within our family trees.

I've tried to be accurate on all of my entries, but if you find an error, please use the edit tab on that memorial, and I will be happy to make corrections or additions to the information.

Please do not ask for transfers unless they are within the guidelines. I would be more than happy to add information and you are more than welcome to add pictures.

The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away,regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

George W Yager (Yeager)
You did such a nice write-up on his wife (Mary Ann Bixby Yeager). That I thought perhaps you could do one for him as well. In find a grave, I found a George Yager with unknown birth and death. He was a Civil War veteran. The info is in find a grave. I went to the Civil War sight and found a George Yager (F 19 US Inf) widow's name is Mary A Yager. She file for death benefits in Mar 1902. Can you write something nice up for him. I'm sure their graves are right next to each other. Maybe you can update his birth and death in FindAGrave.
Thank you so much Cheryl,
Anita (Kitchen) Adams

Please feel free to send me a text with any questions or if you are able to clear this up.

Will you transfer control of these to us so we can upload photos and link other relatives? Thank you, Jason and Bessie (Yager) Wilzer

RE: Sharp family
Now if you could just convince another relative of yours (Duane Yager) to get a computer and join some of his classmates online.....:)

Sharp family

Glad to see you keeping on top of things. You "beat" me again with your memorial for Betty Sharp. I went to school with the Sharps at the old Boyd School in Selma Twp. Thank you for all your work in getting these records on here. Future generations will thank us.

RE: DeJonge memorials
Yes, I received the information you sent. So sorry I didn't reply. I haven't printed it off yet. My son got married last weekend and we've been preoccupied with wedding stuff. Things are starting to settle down, so I'm looking at genealogy records.
Thanks again,
Scott Jensen

RE: DeJonge memorials
Thank you for offering to share your family tree with me. Unfortunately, I don not have the Legacy Family Tree. If you are able to send it by another means [as you mentioned] that would be most appreciated.
