Native Oregonian, retired Medical Records Clerk and family historian in our family.
I am a member of the Lebanon Genealogy Society (Lebanon, Linn County, Oregon)
I ENJOY VISITING CEMETERIES.
Have taken my young grandchildren and great niece & nephew with me.
They love to read the names on interesting headstones:
' the ones with engravings of trucks, tractors, airplanes, a kitty, a horse, trees and lakes...'
The youngest one would run around excitedly shouting out
'Aunt Bonnie, here's a memory, here's another memory'!
I enjoy utilizing all the features that Find A Grave offers.
I create new memorials for any not already created (DUPLICATES CREATE A TERRIBLE MESS).
I WILL TRANSFER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY!
I strongly believe that family will take the best care of their relatives' memorials.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBTORS WHO HAVE BEEN WITH Find A Grave
FROM THE BEGINNING AND HAVE MADE ALL THE INITIAL MEMORIALS!
Your work is Stupendous!!
I do research almost every day and try to complete memorials with edit suggestions;
linking family members; and making photo requests (esp. for our Veterans)!!
I work on my own family and others that I have been requested for assistance.
I am very appreciative of all the volunteers who have taken my requests and posted wonderful photos.
AND A BIG THANKS TO EACH OF YOU WHO NOT ONLY POST A GRAVE PHOTO BUT ALSO A SCENIC SHOT!
Because Find A Grave has made a change in not posting a photo of the cemetery sign on Memorials,
some Memorials have NO PHOTO AT ALL!!
Their graves being 'UNMARKED' or 'Not Found'.
To those volunteers who post a photo of the 'unmarked ' site, I give a Big THANK YOU !
My preference is 'VISUAL' - I like to see grave markers or at least see what the final resting place looks like.
