Find a Grave ID


I first got interested in genealogy when I was about eight years old when I inherited an old bible with people's names written in it :) No one could tell me who those people were and so began my quest. I've gone about it all backwards I suppose, in having begun with John Stevenson born in 1763, and working my way forward, but I did eventually discover that John is my 4th great grandfather. And, I discovered oh, so much more over the years as well!

As for cemeteries ... of course they go hand-in-hand with genealogy! They're brimming with history and family stories! I've been taking pictures of graves for a few years too, but those photos just sat in dusty old files all but forgotten. I've finally decided it's time to share them so I've posted several of the ones I have in digital format, with a few still to go.

I'm willing to fill requests for photos from my local area as I can. Family history is meant to be shared ... the memories, traditions, stories photographs and information! I'm excited to be adding 'Find A Grave' as another connection and outlet for the sharing of this magical journey we call genealogy!

Some of the surnames I'm researching include, Stevenson, Richard, Hunt, Lee, Taylor, Plumb, Rattray, Brandriff, Swartz, and Poskochil.

By the way, I'll happily share my photos with you, for you to use in your family trees etc - but please, do let me know when & how you plan to use them and be respectful enough to credit me, WildThistle, as the source? Thank you so much!

May the wind be always at your back ... and the brick walls crumble at your lightest touch! ;)
