Bio

I'm passionate about genealogy. I began researching my family history to know who I come from. Learning about their lives, beliefs, struggles, has left me deeply connected. I know my roots.

Find A Grave is a website that I love. Creating and managing a memorial honoring a life, connecting family together, and providing details that give a glimpse into their world is satisfying. However, there is a lot of ugliness too. Memorial managers who believe that the one with the most memorials wins so they refuse to transfer memorials or people who get mad because there is an easily correctable mistake on the page. I won't put up with any ugliness directed at me. Be sure to take a nice tone. Kindness first and always.

The memorials I manage or create are to help others who come along looking for their history or want to sit at the virtual grave of their loved one. Let's be respectful and honor their life. Add a flower. Please don't post pictures or images that might cause distress to a loved one. Be circumspect when posting a death certificate or obituary. The facts around the death may be sensitive.

Use the Find A Grave suggest edits option and add sourced, verified information. There are boxes for you to enter changes, such as mother's or father's memorial id, etc. I can't add certain types of information such as siblings. You can add the parents to each sibling yourself. If you want the information listed in the biography section, use the suggest a correction option to send the information.

Send obituaries through suggest a correction. I prefer to type the obituary into the bio section rather than posting the newspaper article. Please don't post biographical information in flowers.

I'm happy to transfer memorials that do not belong to my family. Just ask.

Happy researching.
