Bio and Links
Bio Photo Wow! My first profile said that I was a newcomer just starting to get into genealogy! But, I see that now I've been on Find A Grave for more than 7 years and more than that pursuing genealogy! And, my cache of information on my ancestors, historical insights, and more continues to grow.

I'm even more interested and grateful now than ever before for how much work others have done regarding gravestone information. And, I am no longer surprised at how large the community of interested folks is! I hope to be able to continue to add quality information and to fill in the blanks in my own family history.

Please contact me if there is any way I can be helpful. Thank you and enjoy your searches!

RE: Romanah Craft Sammis
I'll leave this for another day. I have spent over 12 hours today rebuilding my data base. Fortunately I had printed off a huge amount of my information so that has been quite helpful.
I appreciate your explanation and am sure it will make sense when my mind is rested.
Good to hear from you.

Romanah Craft Sammis
Janie: I noticed you posted a picture of Romanah on the Find A Grave Memorial# 117315306. This Memorial gives her DOB as 1865 but everything I can find says it 1883/85. My research has given me the census records from 1900 - 1920.

Unfortunately I had a problem with my FamilyTree Maker program with over 9000 names and it won't open again. So, I am now in the process of rebuilding my data base but have chosen to use Ancestry for safe keeping.

The article on the above mentioned memorial was familiar to me and, in fact, I had it saved in my documents. However, I'm concerned about the DOB.

Any help you can give me would be most appreciated.

RE: Request transfer of management of Julius Nathaniel Gist - 27751609
Hello, again! Would you please share your lineage back to Julius? I would like to verify that my tree is correct. I love meeting new cousins! Thank you!

Hello, cousin!
Yes, I am related to Julius Nathaniel Gist through my great grand aunt who married Hosea Gist, son of Joseph Gist, brother of Julius Nathaniel Gist! I would love to exchange info and get acquinted!
I hadn't researched your grandfather, yet, but am in the process and would like to know which child you belong to. I love to see how our families have connected through the years. I have done quite a bit of research on the Gist family.
Have a blessed evening!

I've transferred Minnie to you, too. Best to keep the couples together, I think. Love your camel photo, BTW! We didn't have enough time to ride them when we were there! Sheri

Hi Janie ~ I've transferred Hugh, would you like to manage Minnie also? I had taken their photo because their son, Guy, married Emma Reigle. Reigle's are my husband's line. :) Sheri Ross

RE: Gladys Ione Hopkins Cummings
Hello, Janie
I have made your link as requested, but do you realize you can do this yourself via the edit links on the memorial pages? It makes things a lot easier for all involved.
Thank you, Vonda
