PLEASE NOTE ..Find A Grave has something to help us update the memorials so if I have entered any information that is incorrect, please use the edit function for corrections. I want to keep the information as accurate as possible.

I began by helping my mother with her genealogy research by locating our ancestors' graves. Then, I got involved with several friends, helping them create their trees and memorials. You can see the names we are following in my virtual cemeteries. Along the way, I have found others' ancestors and created their pages. Now I have documented our ancestry to Col. Daniel Boone which was great fun and required some sleuthing. And, finding the "Women of the American Revolution". Next trying to break down several "brick walls."

I'm happy to transfer management to family members, just ask! PLEASE use the "Edit" tab and "Suggest a Correction" when doing so and give your relationship or reason for the transfer.

Please feel free to use any photos I have posted in your research work. © Photo courtesy of Find-a-grave member #47361005

Note that, once I have dealt with a message, I will delete it, so if you don't see yours there, that's what happened.

PROBLEMS/BUGS with the NEW SYSTEM that I have (sometimes repeatedly) REPORTED:

2. captions on attached photos are extremely limited so that I must put the information in the memorial itself as well as trying to add it to the photo - STILL A PROBLEM; PLUS you no longer can copy/paste the captions on the photos so you must retype it to use it elsewhere or take a screenshot which cannot be editted - THIS IS VERY ANNOYING and a time waster
3. it is difficult to figure out what nomenclature the system wants to use to standardize place name; if you don't guess correctly you can't add it; it used to be great because you could use a pulldown and figure it out - STILL SOMEWHAT A PROBLEM
4. the id for a person's name/member number in their profile has the time since they became a member embedded; when I copy the name and member number I get that "time stuff" which must be edited out - so now I don't bother to give the person credit for their photos, or I include it which looks dorky (SORRY)

IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS, PLEASE look at the bottom right of the page and click on SEND FEEDBACK giving the memorial number and the issue so it can be investigated and fixed. I have reported all these issues.
