I live in Anderson, IN, but also have a home in Russell Springs, KY.
My ancestors are: Stephens and Coffey (on both sides of the family), McQueary, Tarter, Wilson and, I am connected, in some way, to just about every other family in Russell Co., Kentucky

Sincerely, thank you, to all you wonderful geneologist who do so much research. Without you, my family "trees" would not have grown from the small acorns to the mighty oaks. You have unselfishly answered so many questions for me. I have benefited so much from your superior knowledge. May God bless every one of you.
A GUIDELINE is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is NEVER MANDATORY. Guidelines are NOT binding and are not enforced.

I salute FAG members who transfer outside FAG guidelines.
There are family member's memorials, aunts, uncles, cousins, that I would like to add information to, memories, obituaries, etc. I have even offered to transfer the memorials back to them after adding info, but they do not transfer outside FAG guidelines. Most of these relatives passed away before I became a member of FAG.
I just don't understand why someone would want to manage thousands of memorials of people they have never met. These are our families. They are precious to us.
If I have done a memorial of one of your family members, and you would like to manage it, just let me know. I will be happy to transfer.

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Don't think of them as gone away, their journey has just begun. Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of them as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and no years. Think of how they must be wishing that we could know, today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of them as living in the hearts of those they touched for nothing loved is ever lost and they were loved so much.

Pl-eas-e-e, stealing an obituary from a newspaper???
Newspapers are in the public domain, therefore they
are available to anyone and everyone.

My virtual Cemetery, "Our Animal Babies" is a work in progress.
