Retired educator. 40+ years researching and documenting for my family and others.

If you see pictures of your family I posted, they are there to share! My pictures come from personal acquisitions and databases which are in the public domain and not under copyright. I don't mind if you use them elsewhere - just no commercial uses please. REAL genealogists LOVE to share - they are not stingy- so help yourself if your motives are pure.

Pet peeve: When you've created so many memorials that you can't get to edits and you fuss at people for sending them - it's time for you to get off this site. LOL. Numbers mean nothing if you can't take care of them!

Pet peeve#2 - I don't waste 5 seconds on people who are bossy, controlling, restrictive, and power-hungry. Lighten up! When I go to a site, I like to see all the info I can! Most people like that. Stop trying to impose your personal preferences on everyone else! Some people like to make up their own rules and then say they are site rules. Be honest. Nobody likes a stick-in-the-mud. Be nice and stop acting like the world is coming to an end if people don't do what you want them to do.

Visiting here makes us mindful that we all are mortal....and IMMORTAL. God created us to live with Him forever. Sin separates us from Him, but Jesus Christ came that we might have life and have it more abundantly! Receive His love and grace. He paid for our sin on the cross that we might live with him forever. This is why visiting my loved ones memorials on here gives me great joy and hope- what a great reunion for those who have died in the faith! One day, I'll be part of the church triumphant!
