This Tombstone Tuesday I wanted to share something a little different than a tombstone picture. Recently I commented that I have belonged to Find A Grave for about a year now. This is a wonderful site to belong to. I belong as a contributer, and because I belong as a contributer there is something that has been bothering me.
The reason I joined Find A Grave was to CONTRIBUTE! For over a year now, I have not contributed. Guess it bothered me enough to bring it to the top of my priority list because I have now finally made some contributions!
I think what prompted me more than anything was that I met a cousin online who contributes regularly to Find A Grave. She gave me the encouragement to start. For some reason I was nervous about it, and I have yet to figure out why! Anyway, before I even made an actual contribution, this cousin turned over two of her entries to me to manage! She gave me my grandparents entries. I had no choice but to make some entries so I could learn how everything worked. If I were to manage my grandparents entries, I had better know what I was doing!
Of course the first few I entered took a bit of time to make sure I did everything correctly, but honestly, it was a piece of cake. I still have no idea why I was so gun shy to do this. I have now entered my first ten entries and all with pictures of the grave sites to boot. I was able to add photos of my grandparents grave sites as well.
Sure can't say enough about Find A Grave. Have you found information on a family member at this site? If you aren't a contributer please think about becoming one. If you are a contributer, please leave a comment and let me know. I would love to see who you are!
Contributing to Find A Grave is one way I figure I can give back.
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
