Genealogy and family history are my life source, coming in second only to my living family and that of my husband, whose family I am also looking for.
I enjoy road trips in search of the footprints of my ancestors, walking where they walked, looking out the windows on a time long past and finding where they finally found their rest.
Unlike some, I'm not looking to make a name for myself in the numbers competition. Personally, I feel that the speedier the memorials are done, the less love and care that is put into them, making them look sloppy. These people we are remembering deserve just as much respect and reverence today as they did when they were alive. Without them, there wouldn't be us.
I do what I can to expand the memorials in my care, add photos where I have them in my possession, a bio to put meat on their bones and tie them to as many of their family members as possible. I try to be accurate, but I will still make mistakes. Please be kind in correcting me. I will not make changes if I feel they are not necessary.
Feel free to use my photos on your Ancestry tree, Family Search or any other genealogical site. Please do not use them on other cemetery sites such Billion Graves, etc.
I've been given the care of several memorials created by fallen contributor "DALE CAPLIN", and have created memorials that are no relation to me. These are in my virtual cemeteries. I am happy to make transfers outside of the guidelines. They all need to be cared for.
