Howdy hi! While you're here, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a flower for my grandma, Lola June "Nan" Beckstead. She passed away in 2009, and things just haven't been quite the same since then.
I spent the first 19 years of my life in Reno, Nevada, but on July 21, 2015 I packed up my 35 pets and moved to Phoenix, Arizona. When I'm not out graving I'm either at home crocheting, out playing Pokemon Go, or working as a delivery driver at Pizza Hut (don't knock it, it's actually a lot of fun!)
Most of my ancestors hail from Utah. My family tree includes the following surnames: Beckstead, Butterfield, Channing, Childs, Cowdell, Dody, Haddenham, Jacobsen, Jenkins, Johnson, Montgomery, Reed, and Thompson.
I take a lot of pride in my memorials, and I try to put as much information as possible into each memorial I make. With all the new information available to me now through Ancestry subscriptions and newspaper archives, I'm going back through each of my memorials and trying to bring them up to my new standards, outlined in the following checklist:
1. Full name
2. Full birthdate/place
3. Full death date/place
4. Marker transcription
5. Links to parents
6. Links to spouse(s)
7. Links to children
9. Picture (grave or person)
Sometimes it's not always possible to complete the checklist, but I've been doing pretty well so far!
I will transfer any of my memorials to anyone that requests them (except, of course, my grandparents, great-grandparents, and Dad). Whether it's out of guidelines or in bulk, for whatever reason - you have a connection to someone, you're researching the family, you walked their dog once in 1978 - you are welcome to manage. Also feel free to use my photos, there is no need to ask permission or credit me.
If you're not a member of Find A Grave but would like me to make corrections to a memorial, feel free to send me an email! Make sure to include either a link to the memorial(s) you want corrected, or the memorial number.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
If I haven't responded to your correction/email in 3-4 days, send me a message here or send me another email! Sometimes old-style corrections get lost in the mass of "Edit Processed" emails, or I just flat-out forget (I have a bad habit of reading emails at 3 am, marking them as read, then going to sleep and accidentally forgetting about them, lol).
