Effective immediately I will no longer make changes to my memorials. If you will send me your Member ID# and the ID that you want to make changes to I will transfer the memorial to you and you will have to make changes. PLEASE DO NOT TRANSFER A MEMORIAL TO ME UNLESS I HAVE REQUESTED ONE. I HAVE TOO MANY MEMORIALS AND I AM DOWNSIZING. THANK YOU.This is the link to the Library of Congress site:http://chroniclingamerica.loc.govNovember 10, 2018I have worked on a project that you might be interested in. I have searched Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. There are over 100 newspapers on this site and they seem to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link: http://oregonnews.uoregon.edu/search/pages/The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987 is also a good place to search and is free if you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdncPlease DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.PLEASE PLEASE ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIALS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU MAY HAVE THE ONLY EXISTING PHOTOS!!!When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE do it the correct way. NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal! Please give me credit for my own photos if you post them in your family tree, etc. Thanks.I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manilla Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
