Creator of website www.ezraeby.com a website dedicated to updating and correcting the work of Ezra E. Eby who published "A Biographical History of Waterloo Township" (Ontario, Canada) in 1895-1896.
In addition to Mennonite and other pioneer families in the Waterloo area, the website will now also feature Mennonites from York and Lincoln Counties (Ontario, Canada), as well as Amish and Amish background families from Waterloo, Oxford and Perth Counties in Ontario and beyond.
"Findagrave is one of my favouretist websites in THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD"!
With that said, there are a number of things that just downright annoy me.
For the most part, I work together with other gravers who create quality pages.
What is a quality page?
The ideal page has all, or most, of the fields complete.
Above all it has, in most cases, a photo of the gravestone - or a photo request submitted.
Here are some things that irk me.
1. Individuals who add no or very few gravestone photos.
2. Those who ask me to link to pages with no documentation a person is
actually interred there. I will ignore these requests.
3. Gravers who request transfers outside of Findagrave guidelines. I gladly
make exceptions for a few of my findagrave friends who have clearly
demonstated they will add in a significant way to what I have done.
I am unimpressed by those who accumulate HUGE numbers of pages they
did not create themselves - just because they are "related".
4. Gravers who add photos which cannot be read.
C'mon folks! Let's do it right, or not at all.

|William Ensminger||Regarding Jacob Bechtel|
Is there a possibility that his wife Elizabeth moved back to Pennsylvania, USA with her children and remarried? I have found a record in the Pennsylvania U.S. Census of 1850.
|Art Currie||RE: Photo Requests|
Good question. For the most part I have copies of the local genelogical society records - Wainfleet, Humberstone, Bertie plus others in Middlesex and Lambton Counties. While it is true I do not have photographs of all the postings, the genelogical societies various cemetery records are actual inscription readings from the tombstones. Thus, the tombstones did exist at the time the genealogical society did its recording of the cemetery.
Also a secondary source is the Florence Neff Young collection for which I have a copy. As you probably know, Florence did a great job of collectiong family records, a lot of which contain information as to the burial location. I have found her work to be quite accurate since it was done pre-computer days, done by pen and paper whereby she got the information directly from family members.
As an aside, you can't always beieve tombstone inscriptions, as I have been told several times by cemetery office staff. In Poplar Hill cemetery in Middlesex County I know of two tombstones lisitng husband and wife. In both cases, the wives died young and the husbands moved to Michigan to live with their sons. The husbands died and are buried in Michigan although their names are on the tombstone in Ontario.
In our case, I have no problem with your not doing the linking. I fully understand.

What a wonderful discovery, the memorial and tombstone photo you've shared for Frederick Noxel. Thank you much!
|Kurt Johnson||Doreen Snider|
Thanks for the correction!
I noticed that you put in a photo request for John Lehman I have the transcript and he is buried at St. John's but the year of death is different then what you have its 1935 according to the transcript.
He is buried with Jane Lehman.
When I get there I will take the picture for you weather permitting.
