A Sussex County, Delaware Native. Have been a Genealogist for over forty years researching family in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. ( Remember, if it's not documented it didn't happen.)
When making an edit request on memorial's I manage please provide PHOTO or SOURCE of documentation. No exceptions.
Documentation to include Birth Records, Marriage Records, Death Records, Census, Probate/Wills, Military Records, Bible Records, Land Records, Obituaries, etc., are VERY important and NECESSARY in proving lineage and most importantly helps to tell a part of their STORY for our future generations .
Old Homestead Family Cemeteries are near and dear to my heart as they are fading and being lost with the passage of time.
I want to thank my daughter, Jamie for helping me research, locate, record and photo the oldest grave marker known in Kent County, Delaware. That of George Craige 1685-1735 and his wife, Isabella Craige 1690-1753
I have learned in my journey as a researcher that just because grandpa or grandma say they're parents were born in England, that may in fact not be so. Just saying!
