Thanks to a volunteer, I found so many of my g grandparents. Thank you so much. My desire is to share stories, photos, and information as widely as possible so it will be preserved. A photo, story or memory sitting in a dust covered box that no one ever sees or forgets about isn't memorializing the lives of those we loved. I want to share, preserve memories, and celebrate the lives of all those who have taken life's journey before me.
Who is the lady in the middle who looks so much like me? It's taken me four scanners and one computer before I've figured out how to scan all these old family photos. Researching my family history has been much easier for me then figuring out how to deal with these pictures, as I'm not a "computer" person. I've had pictures fall apart in my hands and have had ink fade so the words that once were written are now lost. We must save these family treasures for those who follow us. Find A Grave is a wonderful, and easy way for us to do that. Feel free to use anything that I have contributed on this site.
Please contact me for additional information and pictures. I post on many Rootsweb message boards, try Calhoun Co., MI. Denver, CO. ect. My tree is at Ancestry.com Baker/Alden
Carole Alden down from Rev. Nathan Baker1760-1836 with lots of extra SHATTUCK, thrown in. Additions and corrections are rejoiced over (please, include sources).
I asked Linda to explain this in over 60 English:
RE: OVER 60
Go to a person on findagrave. Click on the virtual cemetery key. It comes up my virtual cemetery. At the top click on new. Name your cemetery. Do you want all of "Crown Hill" or all of "Alden" ? I've also seen all civil war soldiers. I do mine by family name that I have trees for. Is that enough? Then when you go to a memorial hit virtual cemetery key, X the cemetery you want a person connected to .
Then in tools, you can look at you virtual cemetery. I can see all my Leek connections. It does not have to be your memorial to be in your virtual cemetery.
