I became interested in FindAGrave when researching my own family tree.
Many of our relatives are buried in Kerley Cemetery, Flatwoods, Johnson County, Illinois. I wondered if everyone there was somehow related, so I started trying to link those in the cemetery to my own family tree. I discovered I could link nearly all of them, and this resulted in my creating a new tree including all memorials in the Kerley Cemetery.
I plan to continue to add memorials as I locate and photograph them, and I have also added some memorials based on obituaries. When I come across a sibling, or parent's, or child's obituary, I sometimes create memorials for those people in the cemeteries they are buried in so that i can link them to relatives in the Kerley Cemetery.
I also enjoy transcribing photos on the FindAGrave site.
