PLEASE keep in mind that no one is perfect. If someone notices I've made a mistake, let me know and I'll correct it promptly.
The thing that appeals to me about unknown memorials is the whole search process. I like to find previously undiscovered graves, and when I do, I do my best to track down more about the person, find their obituary, and link them to other family members. Maybe some day a family member will discover them, and I'll be thrilled to transfer the memorial to a descendant.
Other than my own direct grandparent lines, if I've added someone from your family line I'll generally transfer them to you, even if they're more than 4 generations out. As descendants, family members will undoubtedly have access to more information and be a more appropriate caretaker of their memorial than me. In my family lines, I look forward to transferring any great aunts and uncles to their great grandkids once they join Find A Grave.
I was born in Nebraska but grew up in Colorado, the oldest girl of 10 surviving children. I currently live in Wyoming. My mother, who is in her 80's, started working on family geneaology shortly after she got married in 1954. This allowed her to start collecting information from my father's family also-including his aunts and uncles-while they were still around and had good information on family history. Luckily his family had good records and a reasonable number of pictures.
Family lines on my fathers side include surnames ENDRES, PEARSON, EMERY, TRASK, CARTWRIGHT, TANNER, REINFORT, BURGESS, CHAMBERLAIN-and others.
Family lines on my mothers side include CONROY, KENNEDY, DOWD, McILHATTON, GERIS, PHILLIPS, RUDIGIER-and others. The Irish side is proving more difficult to track.
If I can track down information, I'm happy to assist people who need help with records and pictures from Greeley, CO and Cheyenne, WY.
