Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Wairarapa, New Zealand with my husband & 2x children. I have enjoyed helping people find lost & missing family members over the past few years. Feel free to leave me a message if you have extra information for someone.

I am tying to add all local entries, but I also enter the deaths from the local paper, so I can connect them with any family at these cemeteries. (I do not keep copies of the obituary). For those entries which I have just the year of death date I have estimated the persons birth date, if you know the correct DOB date let me know and I will insure the correct information is entered. I am not related to 99.9% of my entries.

Many people like being able to see family members headstones as they don't live near but others may not, If you want a family member removed feel free to let me know. I am happy to do this.
I don't need to be abused for this to happen.

If I have made an error I'm also happy to change this.

Cemeteries I have done and are complete are

Akura Urupa Masterton
Ahipanepane Urupa Te Ore Ore, Masterton
Hamuera Urupa Gladstone
Oates Family Cemetery Carterton
Te Uru o Tane Urupa Masterton
Masterton War Memorial
Mauriceville North, Wairarapa
Mauriceville West, Wairarapa
Taupo Old Maori Cemetery

Wairarapa Cemeteries I am currently doing or will do:

Archer Street Cemetery Masterton
Riverside Cemetery Masterton
Greytown Cemetery
Rangiurunga, Greytown
Waipopo Urupa, Gladstone
Amahua Urupa, Gladstone
Kohunui Urupa, Pirinoa

Taupo Maori Cemetary
I would like to know who gave you permission to enter into The Old Taupo Maori cemetary as you call it (Waipahihi)and take photos of my GRANDMOTHER TINA GRIESHOFER and other family members headstones? And then have the cheek to post it on the internet. That is private property you entered owned by all of our families whos loved ones are buried there. It is not PUBLIC PROPERTY regardless of where it is situated. The worse part about is, i think i saw you enter our Urupa when we were there doing work on the graves with your camera as you strolled straight past us. I should have said something to you but thought nah shes just taking pictures of the lake sweet as. You remove the information you have on my Grandmothers and any of the other graves you have in that Urupa. You had no right. I never gave you permission nor did her children. I will take this further if no action is done about this you pieces of trash. How dare you

Remove NOW
You are truly a disgusting individual jo.

How dare you post INACCURATE information and assumptions on details of other peoples deceased relatives. Especially when there are relatives STILL ALIVE.

I have already emailed you and have already sent an email to this sites owners to have the content removed and to have you banned.

double ups
yes, I did see that
(they) re-added names to a cemetery and then linked them. Even 'made' a cemetery (which already exists), added 3 names and linked them !!

Wrong photo

For some odd reason your photo of the gravemarker for Allan & Edith Eades ended up on Emma Martell's memorial. Find A Grave #112195547.

Please remove your photo from this memorial.

RE: Edits
Hi Jo,
Yes, I am trying to fix as many memorials with all capital letters as I can find. It is one of the Find A Grave Memorial Naming Conventions in the FAQs "Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field." Plus, it makes them much easier to read.

I know... I have way too much time on my hands! :-)

I think I only finished up through M, so if you would like, I will try to get through the rest as I have time. Then all you would need to do is accept them.

And thank you for all the work that you do!

Ann Elizabeth Hoar
Thank you for the picture of her and her husbands stone. I've also moved them both from Masterton to Archer Street Cemetery. I have other Hoar's and others listed in Masterton please let me know if any of them require moving. From the maps it looks like they are really the same cemetery and should be merged. Is this the case?

Thanks again
