I don't mean to seem ungrateful; but PLEASE DON'T ADD OBITS OR D/C'S to the photo section on any of my memorials. This could keep someone from having the space for a personal photo. I welcome any extra info to add and if you will email me the obit I will gladly add it and give you credit for it.
Hi, I AM 67 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY, THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA,TEXAS, AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it, or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another, without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's, just let me know.I don't do this to build up numbers,but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can. It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations or other info, for example ; if you are only going by the SSDI, please do further research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has as the place they died.That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab or other info,I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.
