Bio and Links
   The photos and family links I've found here helped me add well over a hundred names to my family tree so I joined the site myself hoping to make similar contributions which may help others in their own quests as so many others have helped me.

My memorials:
   The memorials I create are as accurate and as complete as possible. I do not scour the internet for obituaries 24/7 nor do I pore over historical records looking for names to add to my "collection". Quality trumps quantity.
   The overwhelming majority of my memorials are created from information I read and transcribed to the best of my ability from grave markers. Yes, that means I was at the gravesite, in person. I also spend a little time researching how people in the same plot were related. However, I am human so I will err, if you spot an error let me know the what and why so I can correct it.

A word about photos:
   I'm tired of seeing my copyright protected photos used elsewhere without the simple courtesy of attribution (my name and a link to the memorial page). When I find these photos I do send DMCA takedown orders forcing sites to remove the photos or face the legal consequences.
   Attribute it or lose it.

RE: Clara Miller Photo Request
Actually I had found it on Ancestry that has death certificates for Pennsylvania for 1906-1924 that are uploaded on that site.
It states she was buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Hanover,PA.
The site Ancestry also has her mother's Death Certificate on there as well. ( My Great Great Grandmother Rosa V. "Kelbaugh" Miller). It shows her to be buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Hanover as well. There would be no reason for her to be buried at the one in Baltimore at that time. Since her family was originally from Carroll County,MD.

* note: My 1st cousin ordered a copy of Rosa's death certificate around 5 yrs ago prior to the records being shown on Ancestry which is new.

As far as where Clara's father/Rosa's husband is buried at should be no concern. He had moved back to Maryland a few years after his wife's death. It was not proper for him to continue living with her parents.

Also one of his other daughter's settled in Baltimore around 1925 after her marriage.Since her father had resided with her prior to his death due to illness. She had him buried at that one since it was closer to her.(Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Baltimore has a free searchable download/Excel file to use for the Interment Records through the site Lovely Lanes which has everyone who was buried there listed).

Thank you for trying to help though. Have a fantastic week.
