Find a Grave ID


I'm happy to share my own photos and information and anyone is welcome to use it. With all of the photo sharing going on out there, lots of photos are now being 'borrowed' from other sites and private genealogy groups and then uploaded here on Find-A-Grave. Some are incorrectly identified, and some include living people. Several of those types of photos have been added to memorials I've created or manage, and I'm actively trying to get them removed by sending messages to the posters and working with FAG staff...a tedious task for sure. I'm happy to transfer memorials of individuals that are not my relations to relatives. Also very happy to respond to inquiries from distant cousins.

Your Tombstone stands among the rest
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care.
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist.
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago,
spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved.
I wonder if you knew,
that someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.
~Author unknown.~
