My passion for research starting with a paper copy of our family tree that my Great Uncle Chips had given to us. He had been working on it for sometime prior to his death.
Due to the overwhelming response I receive from other users in helping me locate my ancestor's resting sites I have decided to volunteer my time for my local cemeteries. I am not a memorial 'hoarder' and my goal is to transfer ALL non-relative memorials I have created to those who are related to the deceased or further interested in genealogical research. I would love to see more people involved in the memories of their deceased family members and/or friends in order to preserve history and memories. That's what makes us who we are, those who came before us and the memories they left for us to hold dear to our hearts.
