- Find a Grave ID
I started my quest, back in the mid 90's, assisting my sister hunt down names in our family tree at our local library. Times have changed. Technology volunteers, and countless hours transcribing historical documents, has made it a lot easier, thank goodness. Every family, has those stories where "Did you know, that we were related to...?" I do too. It is my ambition, to find the answers to those long passed down stories. At the same time, I am assisting my extended family with documenting their family history as well.
Here are some names that I am working on this month:
Vaughn, Ratliff, Hamm, Logan, Thompson, Miller
COINS LEFT AT A SOLDIERS GRAVE: These coins have a meaning when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America's military. These meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin. A coin tells the deceased soldier's family that someone has visited the grave to pay respect. A penny means that you visited. A nickel that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together, a dime means you served with him, and quarter, means that you were with the solider when he Died.
