Sadly, Barbara Cline Weiss has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find A Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find A Grave.
I have always loved to go to old cemeteries and walk thru them since I can remember, the older the better. My best friend and business partner Maribeth Buce or MB as known @ findagrave,has always been the same way. So a little over 5 years ago we found find a grave. That's all it took now we could really justify all the time we spent in graveyards to our families without looking like freaks. So we began our trancsriptions, we would go together and read all we could as often as possible.
MB did all the transcribing online, her bio reads: Contributions to Find A Grave • 39,665 Interments • 156 Interments/week • 18 Famous Bios • 4,398 Photos • 284 Virtual Flowers • 24 Fame Ratings • 3 Sponsorships. Can read more at her home site. These reading took place in a total of 13 states.
MB passed on March 25, 2005. I will forever miss her.
As for my contributions, they are very few. I will still add some names from time to time, but as for now, I just walk thru old cemeteries again looking at the stones. I enjoyed it so much more with MB.
