I ran across this site looking for information about my ancestors. It is a really well run site and is very useful for finding valuable facts..... But, and there is always a but, my biggest pet peeve about the site is the fact that some members are in such a hurry to grab up obits and further their numbers that they post memorials for people that are not dead. Very simply, this is a site for deceased persons, and not for living ones. Please take the time to research and make sure before you post someone's memorial that they are actually deceased. I strive for accuracy because I believe it's important for the families and friends doing research. If I have made a mistake in posting the correct cemetery for the deceased person please let me know. I will check it and if I have made a mistake I will be glad to correct it.

...... NOTE...... I will not read or pay much attention to emails from members with their messages disabled. So if you have yours disabled, don't waste your time or mine by sending me emails. If you dont want to hear from me, I dont want to hear from you.......

Enjoy dealing with the people on here, 99 percent are so nice but as always, there are some hateful ones on here, but thankfully not many. I know death is hard on everyone, and the grieving process is sometimes very private but death is a matter of public record . Some people get upset when they find out you have created a memorial for their loved ones. The way I see it, if anyone does not want a memorial created, then they do not need to put up an obit on the public mediums. I'm always agreeable to transfer a memorial to an immediate family member.

Now, with that out of the way, I find that since I have started doing this I really enjoy it. I have always been interested in geneology and like to further my family tree. Now that I'm retired, I enjoy taking volunteer pics and find that it is a good way to get some much needed exercise. Always looking for info on the Mann, Flippin, Barnes , and Hames names. I am in Carroll co, and if I can help anyone with their research on names in this area, just let me know.
