RE: Mildred Petrie 99923582
Good job Gail - I haven't come across that rule on find-a-grave abt. matching the stone - I use correct names on my profiles. If a women had many children by first husband, I use both married names. I've come across a variety of situations, but everything works.

RE: Transfer request
Just to clarify, did you transfer them to me,they didn't show up in my memorials or did you transfer them to Find A Grave?
Again thank you for your help.

Transfer request
Hi Gail, just wondering why you dont prefer to transfer Julianna Spitzer and Evelyn Degray memorials over to family members. We do meet the transfer requirements set by find a grave, and though I've asked if you are related you haven't responded.
We truly appreciate you adding them and ask only that you transfer the maintenance of their memorials.
Thank you,

Julianna Spitzer
Hi Gail, this morning I was planning on setting up a memorial for Julianna Spitzer, but to my suprise you added her a few hours ago. I had planned on adding her since she is part of our family and I'd like to maintain her memorial without going through a third party. Julianna is my daughters great grandmother. My daughter was asking if you are related, I told her perhaps you are since you didn't want to transfer her grandmother Evelyn's memorial over to us. She is hoping you will let us know how your related. If you aren't related would you please transfer both Evelyn Spitzer. DeGray # 96490768 and Julianna Spitzer #171592625.
Thank you,

RE: Transfer request
Hi Gail, thanks for the quick response. I'm working on linking up the family for my daughter and grandson. Evelyn is their grandmother and great grandmother. Her son passed away unexpectedly a few months ago, he and I were working on the families genealogy. Unfortunately since he (Bob) passed away suddenly there were lots of unasked questions. I'm working on this alone now as our daughter is very busy working and raising a family. I know Evelyns family was from the area, and wondered if you are related to either Evelyn or her husband Robert Edson DeGray? If you are perhaps you would be willing to share what you know of the family tree.

Transfer request
Hello, I'm contacting you regarding Evelyn ( Dolly) Helena Spitzer Degray
Find a grave # 96490768. I'm working on Evelyn (Dolly's) family tree and was wondering if you are related to her? If so could we speak to compare family notes. If your not related would you be willing to transfer the maintenance of her monument to me. She was a member of our family and I'm working in linking everyone up.
Thank you

RE: Obituaries
I wish you had given me the names of the obits in question. I have NEVER posted a newspaper Obit. to any of my memorials. When I have used information from any Obit. I find, I do put them in my own words. I really can not recall one I used verbatim. Send me the names and I will certainly check it out. If I am wrong, I will definately make changes and apologize to you.

Thank you for your input. K.

"I've corrected what I could, added Otto #126675619 as her husband, and have sent a message to Marquerite about the son and the grandson. Did you also send her a correction?"

I am pretty sure that I did. Thank you! God bless.

Re: Sophie Theresa Kucharski

RE: Sophie Kucharski memorial# 132394835

You have Aunt Sophie's maiden name as Swidoski. This is how it was spelled on her original birth records. However, in 1937 Sophie sent a request asking Michigan City, Indiana Board of Health to correct the spelling. Her maiden name was Swislowski, as on her marriage license. Later the family, including her parents and brothers changed the spelling to Sislowski.

Please change the maiden name to Swislowski or Sislowski.

Thanks for your contribution to their page. I have added the cemetery as you suggested. They were lovely people, and I played in their yard as a child . . . some sixty years ago.

Have a great day!

He there,

You are correct about what the cemeteries keep track of, being mainly the date of burial.

This is the transcription of the burial records, which they have labeled as Date of Death. Thus the reason I made a note on his page, since he passed away 04 Aug 1980 as stated on his memorial.

My fingers clearly hit the wrong key since I had 1920, which I have corrected and apologize for.

Thanks again for your input!

RE: 99675332 & 162224785
Gail, thanks so much for merging the info into the newer one. The name change for the family does make figuring out who's who and what name they used confusing and difficult. Interesting bunch, that's for sure. We appreciate all the fine work you're doing and the investment of time it takes. You keep up the great work, also - it truly does make a difference.

99675332 & 162224785
Hi Gail, firstly thanks for all your kind work on Find A Grave. 99675332 & 162224785 are duplicates of each other. Sara Rosina (per her passport application) was married first to Harry Bert then to George Albert Brown. She did pass away with the Brown surname. Also her father, Arthur Hobson, changed the family name to Nelson, which they were all referred to as in their circus days. Might you please move Rosina's headstone photos to 162224785 and then delete 99675332? I'll send family links via the edit tab on 162224785 since the name is more correct, in essence. Thank you!
