I have been researching the Bement Family in America genealogy since 1997, and updating the original family records collected around 1913 and published as the "Chronicles of the Bement Family in America" (only four copies ever published) in 1928. In the past 15-years that data has expanded over ten-fold, and thanks to Ancestory.com and Find A Grave many of the missing links have been discovered.
Since I retired in April 2012 I am able to devote more time to my family research and also focus on improving the documentation within Find A Grave for several family lines. This is because I am very grateful for the contributions of others that provided beneficial information for my research and I recognize the great value in documented research.
