Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the way combines geography with history. The places our ancestors lived are as important as their names and dates. It's hard to pass up a cemetery. Whether you know someone buried there or not, you know the people there were treasured by someone, and all of them had a story.

When I run into a brick wall on my Blanset, Naylor, Williams, Ecker, or Rosa ancestors, I am happy to chase somebody else's. It's always fascinating to unravel a mystery, and fun to share with someone who wants to know.

The Internet is a fabulous tool for researching family history, but it doesn't match the thrill of discovery in a musty courthouse vault or a shady cemetery. I'm glad that we share our finds, but I hope everyone interested in family history gets the chance to walk the ground their ancestors walked.

So I scrolled through some of the names and recognize many. They were very large families back then. Some last names are Bixler, Reisinger, Hench and others. The thing is many of the girls married these families except I think a Bixler married a Flickinger. I saw no Shreffler's. All of the Flickingers are related. So until I read through the two family books and plug in more of the family on ancestry I will stick with Flickinger family for now and get back to you on other family members. Thank You again.

RE: Margaret Flickinger
That would be great if you transferred it. Once things settle down and I move to Illinois next year I plan on getting back into this. I have a book on the Flickinger family and some grave photo's and family pictures I can add. So any Flickinger's you transfer or Shreffler's I would greatly appreciate. I might end up finding you have their spouses also. but for now Flickinger is great. I will have to look again at what cemetery they are buried at and then I can figure out the other family members who are also there from our Family History Book. Thank You again. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Margaret Flickinger
This is my distant Great Grandmother and her maiden name was Yohn. I also have a list of all of her and Henry's children taken from the Flickinger Family History book written in the early 1900's and in the Library of Congress.

Hi Janet;

Would you mind also transferring Jean's wife's memorial, too, so that I can edit their last names to be the same? (Mem #24909281)

Thanks so much, Patsy

RE: Jean Coeve / Juan Cuevas
Hi Janet;

I don't really know how to merge information. Is there a separate function on the edit page that I'm missing? Or is it just corresponding with the other members? If so, yes, I'll try to co-ordinate so all the information can be on one memorial. And I agree about leaving the one with the headstone spelling but maybe both spellings can be inserted as you did in your subject line.

Thanks & also for responding so fast,

RE: Find A Grave Changes
I only wish that Find A Grave would have pushed out an email to all Findagravers with this info when it was about to happen. I for one don't go back in and read all of the info that they add to their Question & Answers. Please pass it on. thanks!!!!

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: Francis Withers
Sounds good to me Janet. I did read the cenotaph FAQ's and even after reading it, unless one of the memorials is "lost at Sea", I'm not positive.
Good luck to you.
