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.

Thomas Aubrey Fanning in IOOF Cemetery
Hi John,

I know for a fact that all my memorials in the IOOF Westgate Cemetery are in the correct location. I know this because I walked that cemetery in 2007 and took a picture of every headstone. Apparently all my work was duplicated and placed in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. What puzzles me even more is that another contributor retook headstone pictures and added them to both cemeteries.

I don't know how to correct this error without doing a one by one S.A.C. I'll start that process to have all the duplicated memorials deleted from the Old Fellows Cemetery.
