RE: Duplicates
I don't think you will need to transfer. I may add maybe couple three times. It is a mess. I am getting it done . I just hate waiting for the changes that's what is hard. But then on the happy side I get to meet such nice people like you

RE: Duplicates
Thank you for your reply. I do know how frustrating it can be when there are several duplicates. I am aware information entered will be erased. I wrote hoping you would understand. I have over 4000 names in my family history and I'm trying hard to update. Believe me there are a lot of updates. But when I come upon several duplicates I got confused and and frustrated. There will be more correction to a few of your Find a grave. I do appreciate your help. Thank you.

Many thanks for the transfer of cousin Wellington Gibbs and his family. It is very much appreciated and hopefully I can add more info to their memorials as I continue to research the Gibbs branch of my family tree.

RE: Dallas Green
Thanks so much for your quick reply! Being sort of new to all this, what exactly does it mean for you to transfer this to me? I can tell you help a lot of people, and I want you to know how much I appreciate all you do.

Good Morning, I found that you had started and added photos of Rudolph & Julia Karlik. I was wondering: Are you of any relation to them? I am trying to find out if there is a link to my family. They were the other Karlik family in South Omaha at the same time as my family. Thank you :)

Me again
Okay, from what I can see, you manage the following Braack memorials:

John (b. 1846), Anna A. (b. 1849), Elmer, and Gladys.

Elmer is good; he is properly linked to his parents, Henry and Anna (b. 1886).

I have sent you the edit with the link so John can be linked to his proper wife, Anna, whose memorial you also manage.

Gladys is another story. She was the daughter of Henry and Anna (b.1886), but I can see no evidence that she ever married (I actually believe that John and the elder Anna may have been her grandparents). It seems she shifted from the family home when she was around 11-13 into the home of her aunt and uncle, the Thadens. I believe you also manage them.

I don't know what happened with her parents, Henry and Anna, but they dropped off the radar by the time the 1930 census rolled around. Obviously they were somewhere, and we know where they were buried, but something happened. Don't know what though.

Okay, preping the info for Gladys, which you will be receiving shortly,

Hi Ren

I received your message and note that you have deleted all corrections / links made. I acknowledge that things did get a bit confusing, so it may be best that you have done so.

I will reinitialize the corrections in question along with supporting info. Thank you for your kind patience and efforts, and my apologies for all the trouble,

RE: Cecil Robert Hallowell, Sr.
Ren - Thanks for checking my request out so quickly. I've contacted a relative of Hallowell, Sr. and advised them of the misinformation. Perhaps they'll submit more up-to-date info. Again, thank you.

I am about to do it again!!!!!

Okay, Henry (1879), and not John, is the father of those children, per Elmer's obit. Anna (b. 1886), is their mom.

John (b. 1846) is married to the other Anna (b. 1849), and not to Gladys. Maybe these are even Henry's (1879) parents, and I just may snoop around to find out. Soooo frustrating.

Gladys appears to be going by Braack as a maiden name.

Lemme get on this. Thanks again,

Sheila :-/

Hi Ren,

I believe I am losing my marbles. I have made a very BIG mistake. Actually, John # 16636999, is married to Anna A. # 16637009 . I discovered that because of the headstone on both of their memorials.

But when I went about linking the parents, John and Anna A., to their children, I mistakenly took the memorial number for the other Anna (b. 1886)!!!!! *head thunk, head thunk .... ohhhh.

I made the family links via Elmer's obit contained on his memorial, here:

John H. and Anna A. are the parents of Elmer (b. 1915), Gladys, Harley, Lloyd, Henry Jr, Della Kuhr, Betty Mumm, and Herman.

I might mention that there are two of the children I have not tied in. I suspect Herman is memorial # 3863712 . I cannot locate Lloyd, who was living in Louisville,NE, at all. I mention this just in case you happen to run across something.

Okay, I am going to see what all I messed up here and send out apologies and additional corrections. I KNEW about that other Anna, but I stumbled into that mistake anyway. So upset with myself, but glad you focused my attention back on the Braacks.

So ... per your message to me, Gladys would be the daughter of John and Anna A.(b. 1849), and not the wife of John. I am sorry to create all this confusion, and thank you for your message.

And yes, I agree that it is nice to see these virtual family trees grow, but with the provision that they are with the correct family :-)

Hi Ren

Quite some time ago, you gave me the care of my gg grandmother's memorial, which you had sponsored. I have not forgotten this kindness, so in turn, our family wishes to sponsor a memorial of your choosing.

Please provide us with the name and memorial number of the person you wish to be honored, and thank you again for your thoughtfulness.

All Our Best,
Sheila and Family

Thank you so much for looking. If there is no marker for any of my requests, a shot of the area will be fine. Sometimes, there just are not markers. Keep warm and again thanks for braving the snow to fulfill requests. Have a happy and safe holiday season.
