I first got involved with Find A Grave while researching my ancestry. I have found this to be a very useful and respectful site, with, for the most part, very approachable and helpful members.
The surnames in my lineage are: Aiken, Gray, Blumenauer, Schaeffer, Monroe, Holtzberg, Smitley, Gerberich, Miller, Lowery, Wise, Jenkins, Hester, Weathers, Kline, and many more. These family lines are mainly located in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana.
Please know that I appreciate everyone who responds to one of my requests for a photo or a link on a memorial, SO much! I work on "projects" in different locations from time to time, and enter a number of memorials while doing this, that I don't always get to thank each of you separately. Please understand, I mean no disrespect. I appreciate any and all help very, very much!
If I have entered a memorial for a relative of yours, that is not a relative of mine (or is a closer relation to you than to me) I will gladly transfer ownership of the memorial over to you. I enter a memorial to honor the person, NOT to increase my numbers. Please just contact me and let me know that you are related.
Also, I never intentionally enter a duplicate memorial. I do try my best to make sure one has not already been entered. If you find that I have entered a duplicate, please let me know and I will remove it, and will provide any additional information I had entered on mine to the original memorial.
If you would like to contact me directly, you may email me at aiken(dot)cari(at)gmail(dot)com.
One other note: if you send me a message or suggest a correction, but provide no way for me to respond to you by not allowing messages on your profile, I will ignore your request. I have had several people leave some particularly rude and incorrect suggestions. If you cannot communicate like a mature, polite adult then please do not bother contacting me.
