Such nice words came in an email today:
I do not travel without checking your photo requests; when I am near one of yours, I get it. I do not put forth the effort for just anyone. Your effort on the Huffords is important work in my mind, and I hope to see it completed.
Those words came from a findagrave photo volunteer. I hope I live up to his opinion.
Findagrave.com allows two groups to come together to dance, even though we never meet one another. One group enjoys photographing gravestones in cemeteries; the other group is into genealogy.
Because of findagrave photo volunteers whom I’ve never met, I’ve been able to verify information and open up several HUFFORD lines, all over the USA. There have been findagrave volunteers many states away who have done more than photograph gravestones: One in California has frequently checked records in a local courthouse. Another in California checked old newspapers from the 1800s to find what happened to a Hufford woman.
