Findagrave is a marvelous site to honor those who are no longer with us. I began by posting my own family and soon found that my family was connected to many families in Mifflin Township and Duquesne, PA.
It is amazing how far Findagrave can take us. When I visited Belgium in 1988, I was awestruck by a cemetery filled with row after row of white crosses. Little did I know that years later I would find a cousin of mine was actually buried at the Henri Chappelle American Cemetery. Being able to add his obit and connect him to his family was marvelous.
I have no problem transferring memorials to family members more closely related than I am. Doing the research is the great adventure! Connecting families--especially children to their mothers (whose given name was often not mentioned in birth announcements or obituaries)--is fantastic!
If you have questions about documentation, comments, or corrections on any of my postings, please email me.
Meeting other kindred spirits through Findagrave is a true blessing! Who knew?!? Thank you to all the generous volunteers who devote hours and hours to the success of this site.
Although I understand that it is permitted per Findagrave guidelines, I request that death certificates that are available online not be added to any of my memorials.
You are the fulfillment of your ancestors' hopes and visions.--Alan Cohen
