Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

In reading Ken’s post about a couple of ancestors that he found in the Texas Deaths, 1890-1976 database at FamilySearch Record Search, I learned that requests for grave and headstone photographs can be made at Find A Grave. I have been to this site a few times, and have found a few folks that I was researching as a RAOGK volunteer, but I have not found any of my own ancestors at Find A Grave. But Ken has inspired me to join Find A Grave and contribute some of my cemetery photos to their database. Another way to volunteer! I have also agreed to take tombstone photos in my area. What fun, as I just relish exploring old (and new!) cemeteries!

In fact, Chatt-Jessie Cemetery in Hill County, Texas, the location of several of my Turner family’s graves, was not even in Find A Grave’s database…until now!
