Find a Grave ID


Things have changed since 8 years and 9 days on the old Jim Tipton Find a Grave. It will never ever be that good again. It is sad and too commercial, and it makes the sacredness of the memorials somehow lessened.

All I ever meant to do here was help people find family connections. I truly hope I have done so.

I am most willing to work with contributors who want to post facts. Please don't post newspaper obituaries, they own the rights to them. I post mostly relatives from all family generations, that I research facts first and verifiable links. Lastly, I post names as they appear on headstones, then address full names, nicknames, etc., in the biography section where it should be. I do not wish to create reams of rules, those belong to findagrave. Sincerely, Joan.

Update: 2020
I am awestruck by the wonderful contributions that have been added to the many generations of names I have researched then added on this site. A huge THANK YOU to each of you who have given freely, bits and pieces of priceless knowledge. And especially to those of you who have left a flower and a generational connection to the person being remembered! I am amazed, some are 10th, 11th, or 12 th generation descended. I am humbled to know how many of you are finding family connections in this amazing Family Tree of ours. To my "cousins", come visit often.
