Bio

I caught the genealogy bug in my teens when my twin aunts were researching my maternal grandfather's and grandmother's family history and cemeteries. My pictures are your pictures, I don't require credit. I'm forever grateful for strangers taking pictures of my relatives :) Be prepared, I like to research every photo I add, and link relatives as much as I can. Please send me edits, I am using www.familysearch.org to look up census, marriages, date of births and deaths, relatives, etc. I like to add everything I can transcribe off the gravestone.
When adding memorials, please check by date of death and first name. Snyder and Schneider sound the same. Stewart vs. Stuart. Katherine vs. Catherine. Lewis vs. Louis. First names that are the same, Elizabeth, is Lizzie, Eliza, Bessie, Beth, etc. Remember, not every one could read and write in the 1800's, so each generation sometimes spelled their last names differently. Keying off of list for cemeteries, names were spelled how they sounded. Cursive writing on the lists were also hard to read.
Making duplicate memorials is strongly discouraged by Findagrave. It's always best to have one complete memorial, than 2 or 3 with partial information.

I am no longer able to walk cemeteries, so my main focus on Findagrave is to spot duplicates, name spelling corrections, linking relatives when I have a chance. I randomly pick cemeteries and start with the the date of death and scroll alphabetically to locate problems. I am a free auditor in a sense.
If I have answered your photo request, it is because there was already a photo, or a duplicate memorial that has the photo, or there were notes in the burial area that stated the grave is unmarked.
