Bio

Greetings fellow volunteers. Remember the childhood game of "Connect the Dots" where you have a sheet of paper with dots strewn all over the place and wonder what the heck that will look like? Sometimes like a forest of trees of all different sizes, shapes, and species. Well, that's the way Kim and I look at what we do here. We are trying to connect all of those dots (trees) to build a mighty and beautiful picture (forest). Everybody is somebody and we want everybody's life story to be told. We try to do that by whatever means available to us. This is our mutual account that we have created to help memorialize those who are not members of our families. If you have any questions, comments, or where we get our facts from please feel free to ask us. Have an awesome day and enjoy the adventure!

SNAGGED FROM ANOTHER CONTRIBUTOR'S PAGE:
DEATH CERTIFICATES are welcomed on my memorials as they are in the public domain and, although at times there are errors, they can provide a wealth of information. Although some, but not all, death certificates are available for free on FamilySearch.org, I add them so the individual's who cannot afford ancestry.com have access to their relative(s) documents. It's my way of paying forward. And now Findagrave is owned by ancestry.com.

"I have been concerned about obituaries being added so I contacted Findagrave and this was their response." "Greetings... Since the move to Ancestry and the new website, newspaper obituaries, death certificates, and other scanned documentation is allowed. We encourage members to move the images down to the bottom of the photo display so that they are not the first thing you see when viewing a memorial page.
Thank you, Find a Grave Administration"

SUGGESTIONS: For those making suggestions, please research and provide the researched information for me to update. Additionally, if someone has a duplicate memorial, the courtesy is to ask that individual to merge it FIRST before asking Findagrave to get involved.

Going forward, I don't appreciate being bullied and will IGNORE such emails, NO matter how many times you write. Emails of this nature will be forwarded to Find a Grave ADMIN.

Those with bad attitudes please go somewhere else. We are generally good people with good intentions. We are not perfect but we do our best and if we are in error please tell us in a kind way. We try to treat everybody with respect. So give us the same.

MILITARY RANK: I will add military rank to a service member's memorial in two situations: 1. If the person retired from the military or was 2. Killed in action while in service.

HEADSTONE PHOTO VOLUNTEERS-If you volunteer and post headstone photos, please take a photo of the COMPLETE marker. I find more and more that some individuals crop the bottom of the markers off - especially on military gravesites, which does an injustice to our veterans. You took the time to take the photo, then PLEASE take the time to crop & post the headstone photo correctly.

When I accept a photo request, I WILL take both sides of the headstone should there be 2 individuals in the same grave. No need to request a 2d photo for the wife/husband/child.

Working together is a whole lot better than working by yourself:-)

SSDI-Regarding the "Last Residence" in the SSDI: This is the last address of record, not necessarily where the individual died. Please do not ask me to list it as the place of death on memorial pages - to do so would only be a guess.

I work hard on Findagrave and have sponsored quite a few memorials. Please be a contributor and not just a person who adds names. It's great to see the people who do provide research.

NOTE: I do not automatically approve corrections as after doing some research, I have found that some that are suggested are not correct.

If you find any errors, duplications, or bad photos (covered with debris or moss) that I have taken, please let me know and I will do what is appropriate. Some memorials don't photograph well but I try to get the best shot of them.

If you are a relative of any of the names I have entered other than my own family line and would like them transferred to you for maintenance, make the request through the EDIT button on their site then the Suggest A Correction link, and copy your site ID into the message as it makes it much easier for me to then transfer.

Thank you....and enjoy this addicting site.
