I have been involved in Genealogy for about 30 years. Became a Professional Genealogist in about 2008. I have an Associate of Science Degree in Science that was awarded on 16 Jun 1982. I am presently working on my Certification Portfolio for my CG. Found Find-A-Grave in October 2009, and joined. I feel that it is a good way to keep the memory, of those who have passed away, alive. Will transfer a relative to you, unless it is my relative also.
To all of my fellow gravers out there, if I submit an edit, I have already verified the information and can supply documentation if needed.
Quoting another FAG contributor and agreeing.
"I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them".I would like to thank Contributor Bernice for this thought, and also say that I agree with her and the original poster.
My sister Susan Conner passed away on Dec. 27, 2015. Her Memorial #156405201. Please stop by and leave a flower.
