Remembering Ruth Lillian (Hoekstra) DeVries

Today would have been my maternal grandmother's 87th birthday, were she still living. In her honor, I sponsored her page at Find A Grave. Take a look and then go to her AnceStory on my website to learn about this loving grandmother of mine.

Speaking of Find A Grave, one of my goals this year is to add as many names as I can of those in my three databases (mine, Norm's, and the Atlas Project's) to this website. The original goal was that each day I would use the search feature of my databases to find who had been born or died on that day's date (January 16th, for instance), and if they had a burial place listed, I would add their information to Find A Grave. Lofty goal, as I have about 35,000 names combined in those three databases. But I am square up through January 8th.
