I live in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. The entries I have added are from cemetery listings found on Genweb sites from 7 years ago. I can not vouch for their accuracy as I am unrelated to 99.99% of my memorial listings.I check my editing every couple of days and generally approve all edits, unless I have first hand evidence of it being in error. I trust that those who request editing know what they are doing! Yes, I gladly do transfers. I am the gate keeper of the memorials, not an owner. Memorials belong to those who are related, or, have a special interest in the family. Find A Grave has really grown since I first found out about it at a Barnes & Noble almost eight years ago. At that time I had just retired and was seeking an interest to enjoy. Having deep roots in genealogy, love of cemeteries, and photo opportunities, I was a natural. Over the years I have slowed down due to competition. So many other folks are involved that most of my cemeteries are now documented and photographed. Cremation is quickly taking over the funeral scene here in Minnesota. No longer are people necessarily buried and have a headstone. Simply put, like Margaret Mitchell's great novel, "They Are Gone With The Wind." Folks like us do an important task in life. We remember the departed, document it, provide lasting pictures of monuments and markers. All in the attempt to keep the memories alive for future generations. A couple years ago I had several interesting experiences at cemeteries in the form of paranormal activities. I am not a ghost hunter, but oddly started having numerous encounters that could not be explained. Even Orbs were captured on several pictures I had taken! Now, when I visit a grave yard, I assume that I am not alone, but a curiosity to wayward spirits that didn't follow the Light!
