If you see that I am the caretaker of a memorial of a member of your family, please ask and I will consider a transfer unless it is my direct ancestor.
I am happy to review SAC (edits) but if you send them I am not notified by findagrave for several weeks, so please leave me a message that I have an edit and findagrave will send me an e-mail.
My memorial bios offer info believed to be reliable and historically documented or sourced by family/other valid sources like archives; If you would offer updates, please send your sources...Remember, this site has millions of memorials: some have errors; there are duplicate memorials; some memorials do not have gravestones; there are mistakes on gravestones surnames; mistakes on surnames; some memorials were created with databases & manipulated data; some burial sites are unknown or graves lost in time dating back to the first settlers to America, etc.. So, if editing info, please kindly share your sources for attribution & collaboration.
I am happy to share and meet new relatives. I work better behind the scenes. I have found that in trying to help others in one way or another I often help myself later.
My first research was done years ago with family bible records, census records, birth & death records, microfiche and surname genealogies. It was coordinated with other genealogists who were my 2nd & 3rd cousins that I knew personally. It was before the internet and e-mail. We corresponded through phone calls sometimes, but mostly letters. I LOVE the new technology.
In the mid 1990s I went to the LDS Salt Lake Library to make corrections (on my ancestors) to the Ancestral File which became FamilySearch. One had to reference the proof for the correction.
Most of the surname genealogies that I have ever seen do not list the burial place.
On My Barrett/Ferguson/Skaggs/Hoffman Line I have many unidentified photos that I would like to compare with other relatives family photos.
On the Jones/Frost/Lindsley/Brett side of my family there a few unidentified photos that I would like to compare with other relatives family photos.
