Find A Grave ID


PLEASE Don't ever put my name and or volunteer number as a source of who you got information from. I always source my information ie. newspaper with date etc. This is not about the volunteers it is about the person on the memorial.

My husband and I remodel the world one building at a time but Genealogy is my passion. I first became interested in family history after my mom died at the age of 51 and I realized I knew little about either side of my family. I found a single piece of paper which was all that had been documented about my heritage. It did however claim I was related to General Sherman and Alexander Graham Bell, the latter I have yet to prove. It also said I had a relative that owned a circus, with help from so many this has proven to be true, many of my Sherman family worked for the Sherman Circus and my gg uncle owned it. All Sherman's are of interest to me. Each piece of the puzzle peaked my interest more. I research every day sometimes my family more often others, all fascinating.

**The photo section of the memorial is for pictures of the person, their family, headstone and plot photos, not census records, burial cards, copies of obits and death notices etc. please don't post these things in the photo section, not only does it look tacky it is against Find A Grave rules.

**I am finding more and more of my hard work and photos on other people's trees on Ancestry. Although I don't mind sharing it would be nice if you would ask me before taking any of my research or photos. Because of this I have made the family tree on Ancestry private, sad that this has to happen but too many are claiming my work and photos as their
own. If this continues I will be removing all photos and information from my families memorials here as well.**

Research Books I own and will do look-ups:
Sherman Directories, A 4 Volume set of Sherman Ancestry in America.
El Dorado County, CA Cemetery Book
Solano County, CA Cemetery Book

I am an active volunteer, if you have administrative control over a cemetery please don't edit my memorials or add to them, send me the information and I will take care of it.

If you want a memorial edited, or transferred please do it through the edit button of the memorial not here that way there is no question what memorial you are talking about.
