“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” -Thomas Campbell: “Hallowed Ground” (1825)
Hello. Both of my parents are deceased, so I have created memorials for them on this website.
Where else besides this website can you find me? I am the Chief Funologist at ‘Make Fun Of Life!’ at www.MakeFunOfLife.net (Funology is the science of having fun.) You are invited to visit the website so that you can get your daily dose of humor and learning, inspiration and motivation, ideas for fun activities, and memorable quotations that could change your life.
I would like to express a huge thank you to all of you who have contributed to the Find A Grave Website. Your hard work in creating and maintaining memorials, researching information, making edits, taking photographs, adding photographs, making links between memorials of deceased family members, and all else that goes into this website has made it possible for countless people to find out about the lives and final resting places of the people who are important to them. Please keep up the good work!
Like many of you, I came here to search for information on my ancestors and relatives and to share what I have learned with others. I am working to write hundreds of short biographies about them. We can honor those who came before us by keeping the memories of them alive in written records, and when possible, photographs and images, to be passed on to the coming generations. We can make their names live forever.
I try to use the best available sources for information, consulting original documents whenever possible, and secondary sources (undocumented, as for example, relatives of the person, who have relied on memory) when original documents are not available. If you have access to original documents or copies of them, such as certificates of birth, military records, marriage licenses, certificates of death, registers/registries, obituaries, news articles, or other documents or records, please let me know, and if possible, email copies of them to me.
I am happy to add links and information for the memorials I manage. Please use the ‘Edit’ tab on the memorials to do this; you’ll find that it is very easy to do after you have done it just once.
Permission is granted to copy and re-use the pictures and biographical information I have posted. You do not need to ask for permission in writing, and you do not need to ask for permission to mention me as a source of information. Everything I post on the Find A Grave Website is in the public domain and I do not claim copyright or other exclusive or restrictive rights to it; anyone can use it freely.
You can contact me by leaving a public message on this website or by sending a private message to me at my email address below. Thank you, and have the best imaginable day.
