Bio and Links
I have been working on many cemeteries. Mair, Maryfield, Fleming, Hancock, Riverside, Memorial Gardens, Calvary, Woodland and many others.
I began doing genealogy since late 1976 and have done about all I can for the file I keep. The number of surnames I'm working on is about 1000 but mainly Croker, Carlyon, Paull and many who connect. I do more work in the area of my grand-daughters mothers family and it is very large family, just to name a few Hovey, Moss, Ball, Whitehead, Slater, Johnson, Gleason-Gleeson, Fitzpatrick and on and on.
I have worked on finding missing data for many other cemeteries. Finding the missing information on children and connecting them to their parents has been rewarding.
Much of my work is not seen because it about helping fill missing facts for grave memorials on find a grave. My name on someone's memorial is distracting to the family of their loved one. Let the credit go to the person who created the memorial.
There are millions of burials on find a grave and I'll never fix them all.
Did you ever search for someone and not find them on anything? Did that person ever never show up on any record? No obituary, no cemetery, just a jar of ashes, scattered with no marker on a mountain, a golf course, a park, buried at sea, buried at a cemetery with no marker. Like he or she never existed.

William ? Memorial
John, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Temporary mind dump I guess. Anyway, I have deleted this memorial.

Hi John,

I will remove the comment that states you supplied information to her bio in this one case. However, it is not giving you credit. It is just stating you supplied the information.

The reason I've started doing that is because I get people that will email to tell me that information I have added to bios are incorrect when I did not supply the information. Someone else did. This way they know to contact that person that "supplied the information" and not me. I've even had people argue with me over information supplied by someone else. I don't verify that the information is accurate unless it is one of my ancestors or relation.

I update information to people every day and when someone asks me about a particular piece of information I can direct them to the appropriate person when the member ID is listed. I don't list names.

Just wanted to explain my reason for doing it this way.

Thank you,

David Goldsworthy
Thank you for the info on David S. Goldsworthy - I guess David was not buried with his family in St. Clair Cemetery where the family stone is located. He must be buried at Westmoreland Memorial Park. But the Memorial park only has flat stones. I am deleting my memorial. But the tall family stone is at St. Clair not the Memorial park not sure why he person put that on there.

Thanks again,

What is wrong with these people

Was just checking my edits to see if any of them were done...a few, big deal. Members come and go but edits sit there and no one does a thing

I have no ambition to contact admin either so I have to wait until I have more toleration to bug these people or contact admin

Just so frustrating

RE: duplicates

Sometimes its just better to ignore some of the more stubborn members...too much stress.

These things are important and I believe it is more prominent/rampant than they are saying but as I said before, I doubt they care.

Keeping warm where ever you are-snowing here again but they said we might get a foot of snow....believe it when I see it!

RE: duplicate memorials
I've heard rumors about merging memorials from the new admin and they don't care who they are giving them back to so I never send them to them

I don't think the new regime cares about what we care about. They probably just want numbers. Less editing by them. Less employees. Less money spent.

But I'm not stopping you from doing it. Just don't involve mine! LOL!

Yeah really but you never know about the price of gas but then again I believe our heating prices do follow auto fuel prices but surely not downward! Gosh they can't lose money, now can they?
