Bio

Dear fellow contributors,

A special thank you, to all of you around the world who preserve history by devoting much of your time taking photographs, especially of very old and withered gravestones, which may soon be lost for ever.

I am also very grateful to all those who have created memorials for my ancestors, which has made them all the more real to me, given me a place to visit, ponder their lives, add information as I find it, and link family members together.

Genealogy is a favorite hobby of mine and my research is mainly focused on Alsace (France), Bavaria (Germany), Norfolk and London, England, as well as Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia, U.S.A.

While I appreciate any flowers left by others for my family, please leave no more than one or two flowers a year on each memorial if you are not related or a close friend. Thank you.
Any information or photos of persons that I have entered or posted to this site may not be copied and used elsewhere without my knowledge and written consent.

All contributors who volunteer on this site to contribute for the good of all, believe in cooperation, mutual respect, and most importantly in honoring and remembering those that have gone before us, please feel free to contact me via email or message anytime.
If you are a professional genealogist however, and earn a living with what you do, please do your own research.

Kindly refrain from contacting me if you have a hidden agenda or feel like playing games to boost your own ego. There is no place on this site for anything of the kind, also not for bullies, troublemakers, or stalkers. Vile behavior such as this, including rude, nasty, defamatory, insulting messages, emails or edits, will be immediately reported and forwarded to the Findagrave administration.


With warmest good wishes to all dedicated fellow gravers,
Lydia

The Church Book

A village church stands old and proud
Its graveyard darkened by a cloud
Surrounding houses modern are
and on the road a passing car

Where are the miller, tailor, baker
The smith, shepherd and shoe-maker?
Where are their children and their wives
How did those people live their lives?

Grave stones long gone
But bones still resting deep, beneath the trees and lawn

An inkwell and a feather
A wrinkled hand on ancient leather

Different fingers throughout the years
Recording joy, sadness and tears

This is the book that holds the key
All of the lives of my ancestors I see.
