I started researching my husband's family several years ago when we "inherited" all the photos, newspaper clippings, wedding invitations, etc. that his grandmother had kept. I didn't want to throw it all out because it was a lifetime of memories and keepsakes so I began to organize it on a genealogy database. Then I was "hooked"!
I accidently stumbled onto my cousin's posting on a message board while I was searching for information on MY family and this thing just took on a life of it's own.
I volunteered to take photos for Find-a-Grave after I requested and received some for my postings. It was so exciting to see the stones that I thought it would be nice to reciprocate. I also think I have a "sixth sense" or the deceased just "call to me" because since I started taking photos, I've been to cemeteries that I've never been to and I just seem to be able to walk right up to the grave! I've done it almost every time!

I am not related to any of the postings for Mifflin County, PA so I will gladly transfer memorials to a family member, no matter how distant. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB AT THE MEMORIAL TO MAKE THE TRANSFER REQUEST. It's much easier that way and all the necessary information is there.
Any photos I post here are free to be used by anyone. If you do not want me to use your photos, please do not claim my requests.
St. John's Lutheran Cemetery Mona, If you make a new trip to this cemetery, could you search for a stone that may be with William Dolbeer # 47088418 with the name "Arthur" who died in 1913. He is my grandmother's brother who died at 1 yr. He's not with my great grandparents. I thought maybe he'd be with the gr. greats. There is no rush, but if you do find it, could you get a pic. If you could make a memorial, I would be appreciative.
Sr. Mary Marcella Lindenberger I believe you are mistaken in thinking this is a duplicate memorial. Sr. Mary Marcella Lindenberger (1854-1899) is one of two nuns buried at the Sisters of St. Francis Cemetery with the last name of Lindenberger. The other nun is Sr. Mary Justina Lindenberger (b.? - d.1887), who is also buried there. I didn't see any others.
If you still find a duplicate under another spelling please let me know and I'll correct it. Thanks for checking.
