Bio and Links
I have been doing research for several years and enjoy learning new things about various branches of our family.

The memorials I add or manage are either ancestors, close family members or people I have known most of my life in one way or another. I add as much information as possible to each memorial so it will be here for future generations.

Recently I have been adding memorials for people buried in older cemeteries & have seemed to be forgotten. I have also added memorials from old death certificates and then I go to Ancestry to locate as much for the memorial as possible. Without adding some family members or a little history for them it's very hard to tell if you have found the right person.

I do take photos of headstones when I visit the cemeteries and add them to the memorials. You are welcome to use my photos, as long as they are for your own records & not sold for profit. Whenever they are used on the public websites like please post source as to who took them, whether it be me or someone else.

I am happy to transfer memorials unless they are close members of my family or a close friend.

PLEASE! If you have corrections, additions or request transfers please use the edit button on the memorial page which is located above the photo. Then choose the suggest a correction/or addition hyperlink. I always try to do corrections as soon as possible and will give you credit for the addition.

I would appreciate additions to be done to the actual memorial rather than you adding it by the virtual flowers. Those are to be used as a gift for the deceased. Again, YOU will get credit for any additions. I like to keep the memorials as neat as possible. Thank you!

PLEASE DON'T PUT YOUR FULL TREE TO THE FLOWER MEMORIALS! If you would like to tell other family members just say they're an ancestor and you would like to meet other family members to exchange information. Thank you!

RE: Donnie Robbins Coffey
I don't have any information on this lady, and all the people I knew who might know of her are gone. Sorry I couldn't help, but good luck with your search.

I see this wonderful picture that has been added to my 2nd Great Grandfather's memorial.

Can you tell me more about it? Provenance?

Thank you - Ralph
