|Bio and Links|
The past 10+ years I have been an avid researcher of my family (Heimerman(n)-Menges-Mahnke-Poe). These surnames are my parents. I began my search after I asked myself "Where did I REALLY come from?"|
My research has taken me to many cemeteries looking for headstone to place in Ancestry.com. I happened to stumble upon Find-A-Grave when a hint in Ancestry.com lead me here. Although I have not been real active here, but have always been interested in taking photos of headstones. That is when I signed up to volunteer my time.
Any pictures I upload to F.A.G. can be duplicated to paste elsewhere (Ancestry.com). I am not going to get upset if this happens. You do not have to ask my permission...just do it. After uploading, I delete all photos off of my computer. I do not save them unless they are part of my family.
If there is a family member that I have added and you want it transferred, ask and ye shall receive. I add them so that they have a memorial to go with the photo I took.
I don't spend my life on this website, but look at my emails daily.
P.S. Copied from another member's site which I concur with:
"I think it is a real shame what Find A Grave has evolved into. What started (one of the reasons) as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them."

Thanks so much for finding and posting a photo of his gravestone. Your help is appreciated.
|Virginia Brown||Carrie Heloniece Pearson Chadderdon|
I'm a few years late in thanking you for the nice photo you posted of Carrie's tombstone. You did an especially nice job. I appreciate your time and work.
|Ole Archivist||Gene Gasser's Gravestone Photo|
Thank you for Gene and Rose's gravestone photo. Gene died a couple of days ago and I created his F.A.G. memorial and used your photo of their gravestone, but did cite you as the original contributor. If you still have the photo file on your computer, by all means post it to Gene's memorial and I will delete my post of the photo when I update his memorial with an obituary and further details.
|Lynn Duncan||112746089 Infant Daughter|
My grandfather, Robert Andrew Duncan, Jr. (Find A Grave#68903388) wrote a family tree and history before he died. His parents were Robert A. Duncan (Find A Grave#63307633) and mother Emma Woods Duncan (Find A Grave#63307644). He wrote about an infant daughter born 1887 died 1887. Emma and Robert Duncan are buried in Chitwood Cemetery, so I believe this is his sister. I would like you to add her parents. I am also willing to take over her memorial.
|Joanne Scobee Morgan||Anna Irene vs Irene Teehan|
I've requested a photo to see if this isn't another child that they also named Irene. I can't believe the funeral home would be so far off date-wise. They were about the same age, I have to admit, and sometimes when 1 child died the next got the same name, minus the Anna, because it meant something to them. Anyway, hopefully there is another stone to show this was another little person. If not, I'll delete and figure the funeral home guy was just off on his date and year.
Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate that I did. I deleted it. I appreciate you letting me know.

I'm sorry, I do maintain his memorial but I did not place the picture of the headstone so I can not change it. The person who place it passed away and he would have to change it. Maybe Find-A-Grave can change it for you.

I just wanted to let you know that a headstone has been placed for my father; Lonny D. Jacobs located at the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Newtonia, Missouri. I have a photo if you would like it or if you have the chance, perhaps you would like to go and take the photo yourself. Thank you so much for your original photo.

Thank you for your work taking pictures of the stones in the cemeteries in the area. I live in Arkansas and can't get to the cemetery to do it.
