MY FATHER PASSED AWAY IN MARCH 2018.
I was born and raised in rural Nebraska, on a farm with a family cemetery, but didn't know much about family history, I think that started my interest in both genealogy and cemeteries. Began work on the family tree 30+ years ago, and it is still growing.
Findagrave is a great site, but there is still a lot of work to be done. I'm into photography, so try to put as many marker pictures on Find A Grave as possible. I've added more than 2000 to a local cem.
I keep finding our relatives, many recently added to Findagrave, found one that was added 3 days before I did the search! I will gladly turn over memorials of your relatives, unless they are more closely related to us.
Unfortunately, some individuals seem to be very uncooperative, they will not turn over the maintenance of a memorial OR add information that is provided to them. It appears that they are in a race to start short memorials, with little information, and are looking only at the total number.
A big Thank You to all the cooperative people that I've found on this site!
