Faced with my own mortality, I just happened upon this great Web site while searching for my ancestors to complete my 'Family Tree' and to preserve for current & future generations those who've gone before us.
I am truly beholden to some very wonderful people on this Web site who've shared their time and talents by taking photographs of my ancestors' gravesites, which I believe truly brings 'life' to the online memorials that my Son and I have collaborated to create.
Too, I am grateful to other fellow Find A Grave enthusiasts who've transferred existing online memorials they've dutifully created and managed who have greatly helped me in my efforts to create a 'Posthumous Reunion' of family ancestors.
Words just cannot begin to describe how much these photos and memorial transfers mean to me and my family.
Inspired by the gracious acts of others on this Web site, I endeavor to 'pay it forward' by serving as a photo volunteer for this Web site as my health allows; hopefully, my efforts will allow someone else to share these same wonderful memories that this Web site provides.
Here's hoping this site and the labor of many will endure for time and perpetuity to document the robust family histories for current and future generations alike.
