Hope, Washington Heights, Resurrection, Masonic Garden Division, and Valley View grave markers in Springdale. Working the Last Supper / Sermon on the Mount / Gethsemane / Good Shepherd Divisions now.
If you make edit suggestions, I do investigate every suggestion before accepting. I do not accept suggestions, where the only source is an ancestry tree. Documentation is required.
A few things I've learned... Death certificates are good for date and location of death (other info on death certificate is advisory). Birth certificate is the best source for date of birth, location, and parents. Info from headstones is also advisory too. Headstones are sometimes put in place decades later by descendants and errors are made.
I will transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines, unless they are part of my own genealogical research.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
I will also admit that I'm reluctant to transfer ownership where an obit is included and all of the links have already been made.
Many of the transfers that I've made, just sit there, no embellishments.
RE: John Farlin - North Division Okay - I just uploaded an XLS database - haven't done one of them for a while, but I couldn't put all the burials on, that I found pictures in that file. Wow...wish I would have filed it correctly in 2011!
The Wittstock family in Michigan Hello Stephen, my name is Robert Lasiuta, son of Sandra Ann Wittstock Lasiuta, grandson of Edward F Wittstock and Theresa Duzynski Wittstock. I submitted information on some of the Wittstocks hoping to close a few gaps. I have photos I will submit once I get around to scanning them. If there is any information you may want or need, feel free to contact me, as I have quite a bit.
Julius Lewis Rose I was looking at the memorial for Julius L. Rose of Peoria, Il. at the Springdale Cemetery. He is a distant cousin. Are you related to him? I see that his children and grandchildren remained in Peoria, and had many offspring. Any info is appreciated. Liane Rose Leavitt
