First, I admire the dedicated volunteers of findagrave who spend countless hours entering cemeteries & photos to this website. THANK YOU!
Thank you to the volunteers that list just a few family members. To me, everyone listed is a victory to research and to making sure a family is not forgotten.
I have been reading dicussions on facebook about photographs of headstones. I want to state here and now, if I have a photo on this site that I took, please feel free to get a copy, to repost it on your family tree weather it is on ancestry.com or anywhere else. I feel it is more important to have that family member located then to keep the photo to myself. Just please, credit me with the photo not for copyright reasons but because I have family members' headstones and I would like anyone to be able to contact me.
If you have any information you see I need to add, I will happily do it, just use the edit tab. That includes obits, but please, to be fair to the researcher, try to list the paper so that they can go back and verify the information or if you do not know that information (I have a few old ones saved by grandmother that doesn't have any paper name or date listed) then list that too.
I started doing my family history about 12 years ago and as I have time, I add my family to findagrave. I am also trying to add memorials for friends and other in-laws.
My big hope is to one day find time to make the contributions others have made. I have a full time job now...but in 23 years, I will retire and watch out....
I enjoy taking photos in old cemeteries of the statury that is the memorials of loved ones. For now I concentrate on getting the headstone photos of my family. I hope to amend that soon.
My family consists of Webster, Blystone, Warren, Jackson, Parks, Merritt, Sparks, Carroll, Shelburne, Head, Higgins, Gambill, Cecchini, Quartero, Aubrey(Awbrey) and so many more.....
Other lines I am working on are Weathers, Driver, Hester, Harger, Sizemore, Davis, Hamm, Powell to name a few.
I think the most peaceful feeling I have ever had comes from being in a cemetery.
