Bio Photo "Only a Genealogists considers a step backwards progress!"

Don't cha hate it when a graver tells you what they will or will not do with their records? Or that you have to pass some 'relationship' test for a transfer? Oh, and I especially hate it when their profile message is "in your face" and unbending, as if the FAG Guidelines were inscribed on a tablet brought down from the mountain top....Not me............

I will be happy to transfer Ownership rights of any entry I've made- I don't care what your relationship or reason. I'm not related to any of my entries except a very few. My effort is documentation and finding the lost among the stones.

It might be helpful to others to cite the source of requested updates; But even that omission won't stop the update.
How to Request a TRANSFER
*Note: You must be logged in for this procedure to work:

1. Click on the "EDIT TAB" top right of the entry


3. Type the word "TRANSFER"

4. Send.

That gives me ALL the information I need to make the transfer.
Living in Northern Chester County, Pennsylvania,
"I See Dead People."

I haunt cemeteries for tombstone photos and follow up with obituaries if available at the Chester County Historical Society. Or Vice-Versa, I get the obit then find tombstone.
Let me know where I can help in Chester County, Pennsylvania

Chester County, PA Obits!
Oh! Terrific! Soon, I'll begin compiling a "list" for you for Chester County Obits! My Dad & most of his family are from there, and a few nearby counties.

Also, I'll have to be adding more Memorial Pages as you find Obits, if I don't already have one for a person or persons.

Are there any "year limits"/parameters?

No rush...just whenever you have time.

I LIKE your "hobby", friend! Much appreciated!

"Super-Duper Thanks", Dan!

RE: #96646207 Jospeh Filmore Parker
The reference is on Joseph's Death Certificate photo you placed on his Page #96646207. I wanted to make note that his DC had his Mother's Maiden Name as "Valentine" instead of "Balentine". I don't have a DC (or an Obit) for Sarah Ellen (nee Balentine) Parker. Memorial# 149821736. The only two photos I have there are her Funeral Card & her only child, her son, Joseph Filmore Parker's.

You can always go to my Profile Page #47018985, to find any of my people for reference...I have only my family with a couple of, you will be able to locate anyone quickly.

Yes, I too, have seen "employe" spelled with only one "e"...thanks for letting me know the correct notation symbol to place after it of "(sic)"! I had an inkling what it was for, I just didn't know when to use it, exactly!

"The Latin adverb sic ("thus"; in full: sic erat scriptum, "thus was it written")[1] inserted after a quoted word or passage, indicates that the quoted matter has been transcribed exactly as found in the source text, complete with any erroneous or archaic spelling, surprising assertion, faulty reasoning, or other matter that might otherwise be taken as an error of transcription."

RE: Ballentine ~ # 96646207 BALENTINE
No, Rev. Alexander Hamilton Balentine, Sr. (b. 1817 PA) graduated Princeton mid-1840s & was sent to Indian Territory as a Missionary to the Five Civilized Tribes. Died there in 1876 of Pneumonia.

I'll be interested to read about the Rev. Ballentine that you found! I was reared Episcopalian.

Thanks. Janet

Dan ~ "Double Wow"! Thanks for posting the photo of Joseph's Death Certificate! The "new format" on Ancestry has it in the "Gallery & on Facts", but I didn't know it until I checked my Tree after seeing your Post! Thanks ever so much! Janet

Note: Joseph's Mother's Maiden Name is not "Valentine", but "Sarah Ellen BALENTINE". I tried to Edit your photo, but could not find "how"! If you can, great! (I know Ancestry doesn't allow the pertinent information to be Edited on a D.C., so I add it where I can!)

Dan ~ Wow! Thanks for the PA Obits for my Paternal Great Grandparents! Most of what was written was accurate; I'll make a few changes in brackets when I post both of them on Find A Grave & my Ancestry Tree.

Yes, I knew of West Goshen Twp., but living in TX, I didn't realize it was "just over the line" of West Chester. Their daughter, my Grandmother, {Mrs. John K. Handwork/Mrs. Henry LeBaron} always wrote "West Chester" in her scribbled notes for her parents living on Garfield Avenue. Good info. you've given to me!

What a HUGE Blessing you have found for my sister, Judy and I in these Obits! I do have all of the people named in both news articles on my Tree, but to see it in print "officially" with details, is wonderful!

Thanks for all you do for so many of us on this site...your research is PRICELESS!

I will check out corrections you have suggested, post them and get back to you!

Blessings to You and Yours!

RE: mary durborow
Hmm..that is odd. Perhaps they were separated but not divorced. I found Mary Madeline Durborow in the ChesCo marriage record index with a Frederick Brown, married in 1924.

RE: Annie Seaver
Hi Dan,

Thank you, and yes, I noticed that on the death record too--neat record, by the way.

However, every Census doc I've found for this family shows both Annie and Andrew were from Ireland. The records show they immigrated to America in 1889.

Below is the 1910 Census.

Thanks again!
