You Know You're An Addicted Genealogist When:
* When you brake for libraries.
* If you get locked in a library overnight and you never even notice.
* When you hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.
* If you'd rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.
* When you think every home should have a microfilm reader.
* If you'd rather read census schedules than a good book.
* When you know every town clerk in your state by name.
* If town clerks lock the doors when they see you coming.
* When you are more interested in what happened in 1895 than 1995.
* If you store your clothes under the bed and your closet is carefully stacked with notebooks and journals.
* When Mitchel, Davis, and Tenney are household names, but you can't remember what you call your dog.
* If you can pinpoint Harrietsham, Hawkhurst, Kent on a map of England, but can't locate Topeka, Kansas.
* When all your correspondence begins.......... "Dear Cousin."
* If you've traced every one of your ancestral lines back to Adam and Eve, have it fully documented, and still don't want to quit.

I spend a lot of time into creating each memorial. I do so because everyone has a story. Each memorial that I create is more than just a name or a number. They have a family, present and past. I attempt to research every individual, by looking up background information in the local library (4 days a week) and on

Not every listing requested will be transferred. My main goal is to honor the person. I research genealogy on a daily basis and often find more things to add, along with finding other family members to connect together. Each transfer request will be considered with the utmost personal respect.

I am happy to add information someone sends to me promptly to any of the memorials. I want each memorial to reflect accurate information and will gladly make corrections if I am in error.

To request a transfer, please use SAC (Suggest A Correction) and provide your relation to the person.

To send material to add to a page, just click the EDIT button on the top right of the page then use the SAC (Suggest A Correction).

All contributions are greatly appreciated.
