Thank you for all the help. Maybe can return favors. Enjoy reading your bios, learning where you live and your interest and about your requests. Sometimes learning this helps decide which requests to pursue. Also appreciate managers who are willing to add the research i’ve come onto for their memorials. Looks like i’m really interested in who people are, how they got to where they end up buried, stone or not. Who were and are their families and neighbors? How did they survive? Who was a blacksmith, farmer, teacher and so on…
Kindly ask about using photos elsewhere and give source if willing. Add © Photo courtesy of Find-a-grave member #47413072 or my name. Thank you!
