"Kindness Trumps EVERYTHING!"
Unfortunately, kindness appears to be in decline.
Please be kind to EVERYONE you encounter, and you will be healthier and happy.

Appreciate every moment, every day.
Too often I find what I think is possibly a family memorial, but there is no information in the Bio section for the memorial to convince me it is indeed the correct individual. Whenever possible, I add pertinent information to memorial Bios and add links to found family members. My heart is so full when I can reunite families by linking them, sometimes when they are miles apart. This level of detail is extremely helpful in determining if the memorial belongs to the person for whom someone may be searching. With the information they find here, I hope they are encouraged to extend their research in order to gain further knowledge of their ancestors.
I have spent over 4 decades researching my family history and appreciate how challenging it can sometimes be to find information and/or documentation. It is hoped that in creating these memorials, I will make it a little easier for those in search of their family members.
