|Bio and Links|
Family is important whether you knew them or not. They influenced your life. I find many "traditions" a little piece of each member.|
I enjoy genealogical puzzles. I enjoy finding living people to reconnect especially adoptions.
My greatest struggle is researching, assembling information, uploading, then have a person "merge" a cemetery or duplicates. I put the info in the first dated entry per F-A-G rules. Then it is gone. What takes hours and hours to research and upload is disregarded by one click- delete. Be careful in your expectations
Walking through the cemeteries gives me a "feeling" of the times. I am not a psychic or "into" talking to the other side. However,on a few occasions I will walk past a grave; and "hear; 'I wish my family would find me' ".
I take the name, research until I find a relative and ask for the family historian. With that 9/10 times someone is looking for the grave. WOW not often; enough to keep me going.
TALKING ABOUT ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE
Recently, I stepped forward towards a monument to take a picture as a volunteer. At that point, the ground gave way. My leg went in the ground at an angle next to the monument and under. Since I had no phone service only 911, I tried for almost an hour to wiggle free. Finally I gave in; called 911, to call my husband, to bring a shovel. Instead I had a fire ladder truck, rescue squad, paramedics, and the sheriff.
I was fine, but we all couldn't stop Laughing.

|paulswife||Anna Denoma, your photo request|
The grave of Anna Denoma, Gracelawn Cemetery, Flint, Michigan is not marked. I searched the entire plot and surrounding area today. i also checked the survey of the cemetery that was done in the early 1960's and it does not list a marker for her at that time either. Please delete your photo request. Thank you!

|Don||Find A Grave Correction: Sarah Snead|
An error I'm sure. I did not supply the photo. I was able to copy the image and place in on the son's memorial, but have not found the method to remove the image from Sarah's memorial yet.

As usual, timing is everything! I go about once a week to take photos. The home record is the best information about these civil war era guys. I always supply it when I have it.
