Sympathy Saturday: Linking Farkas Siblings on Find a Grave

It's taken a bit of clicking to link my maternal grandma (Hermina "Minnie" Farkas Schwartz) to her family on Find a Grave, because she had so many brothers and sisters.

Now, thanks to the other contributors who accepted my edits, Grandma Minnie shows up with her parents, spouse, children, and siblings.

So many people use Find a Grave for genealogy research that I wanted to be sure my Farkas family was not only completely represented on this free site, but also linked to each other.

It's one way I honor my ancestors and share a bit about them with future generations.

For more ideas about sharing family history, please see my book, Planning a Future for Your Family's Past.

So satisfying to link family members like this! I've done the same thing with several family groups of mine.

Elizabeth, I'm still working on some family groups but I couldn't agree more--it feels very good to have them linked and relationships/dates available to anyone who searches for them. Thanks for reading and commenting!

I'm working on this as well. Preparing for the family reunion I realized how few were linked that should be, people I've entered as well as people I did not. Hopefully I will have dozens of photos to add when I get home and then I hope to get it all sorted out.
