JUST A NOTE LETTING YOU KNOW THAT I WILL NOT BE entering anything (NEW MEMORIALS) for Find a grave any longer as they have made it hard to do. I am one of JUST A FEW people who enter memorials in this area and I don't have time to keep track of when someone died before I can enter information. ITS DOWNRIGHT A STUPID WAY TO HANDLE ENTERING MEMORIALS. LIVING PEOPLE ARE GRATEFUL TO HAVE THE ENTRIES. FURTHERMORE, THE NEW MANAGEMENY RULES STINK...I ALWAYS TRANSFER WHEN ASKED WITH VALID INFO. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY GOOD BY TO FIND A GRAVE, BUT UNTIL NOW IT HAS BECOME USEFUL. THE RULES HAVE BECOME TOO RIDICULOUS. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CHOICES FOR HOW RELATED TO THE MEMORIAL.
RECENTLY SUFFERED A STROKE, AND BROKE MY HIP, SO MIGHT BE SLOW TO ANSWER. I USE ALL CAPS, NOT BECAUSE I'M SHOUTING, BUT BECAUSE MY RIGHT HAND IS USELESS..MAKING IT HARD FOR ME TO USE THE SHIFT FOR UPPER AND LOWER CASE. PLEASE UNDERSTAND.
PLEASE DON'T BE RUDE TO ME ABOUT USING ALL CAPS IN MY ENTRIES!!!
NOTE TO GENEALOGISTS:
AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, FIND A GRAVE AND GENEOLOGY GO TOGETHER, DON'T SUBMIT INFORMATION YOU DON'T WANT TO SHOW ON MY MEMORIALS. I RESEARCH, AND ADD AS MUCH AS I CAN TO MY MEMORIALS. IT CAN CONNECT FAMILIES WHERE OTHER METHODS FAIL.
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it. I do not transfer to "Anonymous" nor do I do edits from them, without some explanation of the source of the information.
ATTENTION: NAMES VS HEADSTONE: WILL USE HEADSTNE SPELLINGS, AS WELL AS CORRECTED SPELLINGS. NEED CONFIRMATION ON RECORDS. READ THE MEMORIAL BIO FOR MORE INFORMATION.
I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.
My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I Just fulfilled that request!!!!
PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR MY PHOTOS THAT IS HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. I TAKE PHOTOS TO SHARE----NOT TO KEEP AS MY OWN. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THEM, PREFERABLY WITH CREDIT.
I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.
"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.
Why I research and why I work with Find-A-Grave:
THEY DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND RECORDED!
The names and dates on the stones represent a life lived. These people aren't just names on a stone---they once lived, laughed, loved, were happy and sad, shed real tears, endured pain.
They sometimes endured pain to the end, and they deserve to be remembered == not as names and dates on a stone, but as REAL, LIVE, LOVED people who had a story to tell! Some of them raised children, and some didn't. Some died way too young or as children. There is a story between those dates that you see on the stones. That is why I will research them and record it as best as I can, and SHARE IT HERE ONLINE WHEN I CAN.
"Every time you feel the warm air on your skin, know that I am kissing you gently and whispering that I love you."
