Good morning and Welcome, Alice!
Hi Alice, sorry it took me so long to approve your posts. But now that I have, you can post without delay.
We occasionally have spammers join the group and I set up these controls to make it easier to catch them in advance. But sometimes I forget they're in place and I neglect to look at the dashboard. Sorry it took a week before you could post!
Oh my Judy! Exhaustion!
but glad you got so much done.
Hello Alice. Welcome to the forum.Where in AZ do you live? I am in Sun City.
what kind of quilting do you like to do?
i teach some quilting, but enjoy Bargellos, paperpiecing, and piecing in general!
hopefully others will chime here about themselves!
We used to get ours refilled at Costco, but the one we go to doesn't do it any more. DH did find some reasonable ones on Amazon.
I have found a lot of family history and found cousins I didn't know I had on findagrave.com. Sometimes they leave contact information and you may be able to contact or visit with them. I'm sure you already know about that site! I found photos of headstones with some names and dates information too, and that's how I found some cousins, because they are the ones who posted the photos and some other birth and death dates, etc. Of course, some stuff from findagrave.com should be verified using census and other information in the official records, but it can sure be helpful sometimes, and a good place to start.
I am also interested in the findagrave.com feature of publishing GPS coordinates for specific gravesites. Of course, whether that is available may depend upon the kindness of strangers. Usually a person needs to actually be standing right at the gravesite and enter the coordinates, but I understand there are many people who are doing that now to build up the database of cemetery information. They used to just take photos and document names and dates, but now they are also adding the GPS info. Such a wonderful thing being done by people who are interested in documenting cemeteries. If you ever DO get a chance to visit a distant cemetery, it should make finding a specific grave much easier.
