Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think this "Find-a-Grave" website is wonderful, and I hope more people will add data to it. Hopefully my input will help someone out there.

I so enjoy finding & visiting the old pioneer cemeteries, where the dates go back to the 1700-1800's.

I'll be more than happy to make corrections and/or add data, make relationship links, etc, but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to a growing misunderstanding of what Find-a-grave is all about.

Please DO NOT not leave me a message of "any kind" without leaving a way for me to get back to you. It makes no sense to do so - it is useless and it will be ignored.

Your "e-mail" must be present in your messages to me.

DO NOT ask for transfers without return contact information either.

I only transfer memorials according to Find-a-grave guidelines so check first before asking please.

TRANSFERS: Per Findagrave regulations:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. This DOES NOT include aunts, uncles and cousins.

God Bless!

RE: Lewis & Judy Cicirello - Memorial
you have a couple of other requests in Woodlawn Cemetery in Wellsville (NY) which I should be able to get to before the weather gets too bad. The one in Hillside in Andover I don't think I can get to. It's enormous and at this time of year I probably won't get to it before the snow flies. It's an enormous cemtery as is Woodlawn. I'll do what I can though!

William was married abt 1914 to Mildred Springer in Wirt, Alegheny NY.
I have not been able to find William's parents.
If anyone can help me in finding his parents/grandparents who could have emigrated from Ireland, it would be greatly appreciated. I found couple of Thomas McEnroe's who had emigrated from Ireland some time earlier, but did not find William Bruce listed a any of their sons. Thank you so much.

Williams Cemetery updates
Hi again Ruth,

I appreciate your help (again!) for all of the updates you've done for me. I'm beginning to get all of my Williams and Steward families linked. I could not have done it without your help!

With much appreciation,
Judith W.

All those updates!
Hello again Ruth,

MANY thanks for helping to update the memorials I sent to you. You are truly an angel to help me! I greatly appreciate it.

I've found that there are actually some people in Shelby County who (for whatever reason) have not responded to the edit requests. It is sad that this is happening. I'm not doing this for me. I realize that one day I won't be able to do this, and only want the memorials to be helpful.

I hope you have a great weekend,
Thank you!
Judith W.

Thank you!
Hi Ruth,

Thank you so much for adding my information on Olive Rush Means. You were incredibly fast!

I'm going through my family tree information and trying to link families together on Find A Grave. So, you may be hearing from me again. Many of my family members are buried in Shelby County.

Thanks for your hard work and devotion to Find A Grave,
Judith W.
