Find a Grave ID


I am working on my family history and will be adding information for our family. Find a Grave is a great resource for people searching for their forefathers, therefore I am pleased to contribute information that others may find useful. During my research journey I welcome the opportunity to help others in their search for their family members. As I visit cemeteries in search of my forefathers, I will add photos of headstones for non-family people that have not yet been posted to Find A Grave.

Please note, I am willing to transfer management of any memorials that I have posted to their family members. As for transfers, I don't subscribe to the four-generation rule. If I've added a memorial for one of your relatives or friends and you would like to manage it, please let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you. Check out my Non-Family Memorial Virtual Cemetery to see if your family members are among those I have posted.

I so appreciate the volunteers on Find A Grave, in exchange I volunteer in my own community to photograph for those seeking images from their loved one's headstones. Thank you to those volunteers who have posted memorials for my family members, particularly before I became active on Find A Grave. Many times when I suggest edits on Find a Grave it is due to a great deal of research. I take several trips a year to visit the county courthouses to track down documents supporting the information upon which I base my suggested edits. I have a policy of having a minimum of 3 documents supporting all my "family history tree" related revisions. I do not limit my research to Ancestry.com, Family Search, or related websites. I love searching dusty volumes dating back into the 1700's. I look forward to exploring many more courthouses as we dig back into the 1600's.
