|Bio and Links|
|I've been working on my Family history since I was 11 years old. I started this because of a homework assignment and became hooked when Grandpa explained that he was Grandma's third husband. I had no idea! |
I lost all my geneology computer files to a computer virus. While trying to recreate the computer files we had a flood and I lost all my notes and documents that I had collected for 30+ years. I now store my family history on Ancestry.com so that I won't have to worry about losing it again. Because of this, I try to add the gravesites for other (non-related) families whenever I happen across the information. Perhaps some of my notes will help someone else in their quest to find their roots.
I've used this site for a long time, gleaning little tidbits of information that I needed. Then it occurred to me that I may have information that someone else needs so I should give back. I signed up as a member and I've been adding my little tidbits as I find them. I hope it helps someone.
UPDATES ON MY PROJECTS!
I have photo documented the Stafford Memorial Gardens up through last summer (2012) so now we just need to keep up with the new additions. But there are hundreds of unmarked graves in that cemetery.
I have taken all photos for the AMAA Cemetery in Brooke, Stafford/Fredericksburg, VA. All names have been entered as of June 2013 and I will be adding the photos as I can. Completed!
I have completed the photos for Rodef Shalom Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I will be entering those as I can. There are over 4000 photos so it may take me most of the winter to get them all entered!
I have taken photos of about 1/3 of the Beth Kehillah Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I will be adding these as I can.
I have a new project! I have been transcribing some older records from a funeral home. In doing so there are several dispositions missing for various reasons. The body may have been donated to science, cremated & given to a family member, or the family was unable to afford a final disposition and could still be collecting funds or the person may have been buried by the state. Therefore, I now have numerous persons entered that I will update with the final disposition once it has been clarified. This funeral home also has a large number of unmarked burials again because the family was unable to afford a marker. I'm doing my best to locate those persons and document thier exact locations within the cemeteries. As my work hours start before and end after the offices at the cemeteries close, it is taking me much longer than anticipated to get accurate information.
Also, if I claim a photo request for an area not local to me don't panic. It means that I was there and already have the picture and I will upload it once I return home from my travels. Along those lines - when I am traveling I may let you know that I have claimed one of your photo requests. If you will go ahead and request the rest of your family in that cemetery it helps because if I am running out of time, memory space, or battery I will try to concentrate on requests that have been made. :)

|Margaret C Cowles||RE: Messecar Transfers|
You certainly are "easy to get along with". LOL No sorry's needed. It's just that F.A.G. has suggested that as we get older (I'm passed the getting - I've reached old) we entrust our memorials to others. I try not to ask for any transfer except in cases where the creator hasn't the time or effort to update information.
You are great. As I've stated before you have gone beyond where some wouldn't. Keep up your wonderful work and your head held high and your fingers on the correct keys! tee hee.

Thank you for locating my Mother's grave. She died whine I was three. I just recently found it after an extensive search. Visited it last year....
|Margaret C Cowles||Shortsville, NY 's Brookside Cemetery|
Thanks for the transfers, but I don't recall asking for them. They're my late Uncle Pete's side.
If anyone (including you)want them in your care, please just shoot me an e-mail. As you can see I'm not a collected on F.A.G. just on my own tree on Ancestry.com.
Again thanks for all you help.
|Margaret C Cowles||RE: Enoch Massecar|
YES!! Now I'm also certain that the Ada in that cemetery is his wife Ada.
Oh, if only half of the "gravers" were as "above & beyond" the type you are...I'd be in 7th heaven!
Folks, believeme, Carol's your go to lady...remember the old cheer "Carol, Carol she's our (man), if she can't do it no one can"?
|Margaret C Cowles||RE: Enos/Enoch Massecar|
You're pal for going that route for a "never met before" lady like me.
Thanks so much for the help. There are many more like us than the other kind of "gravers". You know the kind, "it's my memorial, I'll do what I want" and "so, they're your family, it's my memorial" and "don't tell me what to add" and the final touch = "I'm not deleting mine (duplicate) tell the other one to ...."
Again & again, Thanks so much for you time & help.
|Nina Kramer||RE: Kramer in Atlantic City|
Thank you, Carol! Your work is so much appreciated. I will continue checking for their headstone periodically.
Thank you again for all you do! I'm in Vancouver,BC so it's not very often when I get back to NJ.
|Nina Kramer||Bernard and Sabra Kramer Headstone|
I thank you for doing the work you do. Thanks to you, I was able to gather photos of my grandparents and great aunt and uncle.
I have a request. Not very far from my grandparents are my beloved parents' headstone. Their names are Bernard and Sabra E. Kramer (one headstone for both). They are in the vicinity of Harry Kale and if I can describe the location, they are buried a couple of aisles west of Harry Kale.
I realize you are extremely busy with all the good work you do but I'm hoping that you may be able to get a photo of their headstone. I've been working on my family tree and I no longer live in the Atlantic City area, I would be so grateful for you doing this.
My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much,

I would like to no if you can help me find my grandmoms obituary I have been looking for a long time and can not find it
Thanks for the correction on Isadore and Katie Chaikin. Family verbal history is that their burial is in a special section of the cemetery set aside for members of the Workman's Circle. Do you have any information about this? Sarah
|judith richards||RE: Rouse Family|
Did not see the uncles, but didn't look!
