Genealogy is important to me. I learned about it as a young child as I accompanied my mother on her quest to find her ancestors. I always loved the hunt and all of the wonderful surprises found along the way.


TRANSFERS: I do not go by strict family guidelines, so give me a little info as to how you are related, or why you want a transfer, and I will probably transfer... if that person isn't my relative. I go by what a wise and wonderful friend once said..."I believe no one takes better care of family than family!"


I do Find A Grave for the purpose of helping others with their genealogical journeys, and to honor my ancestors, friends, and others by keeping their memories alive.

My memorials are made straight from photos I take of markers. I love to share my photos with others. You may use them for your personal trees. This is one of the reasons I contribute to Find A Grave. It is nice to help others in this tiny way.

ADDING OBITS: I recently heard from another Find A Grave contributor that adding obits to a memorial is OK now. They received the following from a Find A Grave Administrator. "Since the move to Ancestry and the new website, newspaper obituaries, death certificates and other scanned documentation is allowed. We encourage members to move the images down to the bottom of the photo display so that they are not the first thing you see when viewing a memorial page." So please feel free to do so!

Remember, pay it forward... help someone else out if I helped you! It will come back to you more than you will believe!!
