Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life. I happened upon this website recently after returning from Kentucky on a genealogy "hunt." What a great resource!!!

I take pleasure when I am able to link families on FAG. The numbers mean nothing to me except perhaps the volunteer photos taken. It's more a matter of making the person in the memorial come "alive" by adding details and connecting family. I feel the same about genealogy - a Family Tree, like FAG, is so much more than a collection of names.

The following comes from another F.A.G. contributor who graciously allowed me to use it.

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.

Marjorie Heyduck. #83948388
You sent a wonderful obituary for Marjorie Heyduck but unfortunately, it's still under copyright protection. I'm a stickler for abiding by copyright protections, so unless you obtained permission to reprint it, I can't post it to Heyduck's Find A Grave memorial. However, I transferred Heyduck's memorial to you so that you could extrapolate pertinent info to post.

You're welcome. I'm gradually working my way backward through ancestors trying to update existing memorials and add missing ones. I appreciate your help in processing the edits.

RE: Wealtha Lambert
She may may been shipped back here. Does it give funeral home? If she had family here it may be in the Miamisburg News.

RE: Interrment Records for Hillgrove Cemetery
Just what I have on Find A Grave. I had a list of all burials up to 2005 plus the 150 stones I uncovered that most were not on record. Who are you looking for? I live 5 blocks from there. I could always double check. A lot of the burials moved there in late 1800 from 3 other cemeteries were not recorded.

RE: Leroy Vanata #67942863
I processed the edit. The Vanatta's are tough to work with due to so many variations in the spelling. When I work with them in Find A Grave, I usually search just VAN or VANAT so that I catch both spellings. If you search just VAN, you also catch the ones that put a space in the name: VAN ATTA. Thanks for the note.
