1 Corinthians 2:9King James Version (KJV)

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

I have been researching history in the Bedford County, Cambria County, and Somerset County, Pennsylvania area. I have also done some research in history in the Fulton County area and the Cumberland County area. Learning the history of when the first settlers arrived to the different areas. With names changing in locations and towns forming in different counties over the course of history in time.
For over 45 years I have accomplished researching and learning my own family genealogy. But I have helped assist other people in learning their own family genealogy.
I have also been building a library on the history of several cemeteries in different counties and different states.
I have several of my own genealogy and history books published. With a few more books waiting in the wings for the opportunity to arrive to have several more someday published.

One of my forefathers and foremothers are Abraham "Abram" and Christina (Helsel/Helzel) Rose. I would love to be contacted by more Rose descendants to have the delight to share back and forth any documents, family photographs, and genealogy information. Just contact me through their memorial editing, with providing your name and email. So I will be able to get in contact with you.

I love when I am able to find a photograph of someone many generations older. Photographs show characteristic features in some ones face that may have been passed down to other family descendants. Where you are able to place a current photograph next to an older photograph and see many similarities. I love to also place a face to someone in the family genealogy. A name is a name. But when a photograph shows what they look like, then it makes the name more interesting. Besides finding the legacy in the factual documentation.
If someone has an old family photograph that was in their own possession and not taken from some place on the internet by someone else, I would love to see the photograph.

I am currently interested to find factual documentation on William Rose, son of Abram and Christina Rose. He is not married to Anna McCreary as some people have assumed. He had one child out of wedlock. He is also not the William Rose who settled in Rainsburg, Colerain Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania. If you have any factual documentation please contact me through the editing on his memorial.

If you have any questions on what material I do find time to place on find a grave that you feel is incorrect. Please respectively ask your question(s) on someone you are researching. I am willing to listen. But I will inform you I have done a LOT of research. I will only discuss the question if you have done the real world research yourself on finding factual documentation in the real world and not the cyber world on the person you are having questions about in the first place.

Any time there is genealogy on the internet, one should not take it as the gospel truth, without visible seeing the real world proper documentation. Anyone researching should do their own personal research in the real world to learn their family history. So they will be able to discover if the information they received off some genealogy website is the truth or fiction.

This find a grave sight has already been helpful with different people researching their family tree. I am thankful I have heard back from so many family members out there in the cyber world. I appreciate the POSITIVE feed back, I have received to know I have been able to BLESS many people in the cyber world on finding their family legacy.

One must remember that even in the cyber world that the headstone or genealogy on someone is actually someone else's loved one laid to rest. There should STILL be HONOR AND RESPECT even in this cyber world for the person deceased and the material placed on a find a grave memorial.

Genealogy is a pedigree history of family roots, where one starts with themselves and continue to learn more factual information by researching in the real world the documented history.

My contact blog on find a grave is shut down, only because of pressing real life issues. Someone may go through the editing of a memorial I have posted if they have a true genealogy question. Not a complaint! I have no time for complaints. When people should be always uplifting and encouraging not only themselves. But other people around them. Just like Christ would want everyone to sincerely do daily in life. No one needs daily condemnation. It makes a seed of discontent and destruction in an unseasoned evil seed that should NOT take any root in any ones life. When in the end the condemnation is from the heart of the Devil. Instead of showing the true unconditional love of Jesus Christ love overflowing and blessing someone else who is alive and trying to share the truth in researching family history and genealogy. So other people in the cyber world may be able to learn their own family history.

Proverbs 24:21, 22
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
