Photo request
Hi. I'm writing a not for profit historical narrative of the Kirk family and request permission to use your photo of William T. Fulton's grave marker at Oxford Cemetery. I see you have given permission to use photos for personal uses... this is just a little bit different. Rather than presume, I thought I'd ask. If you give permission, I will certainly credit you in the book. If you wish a credit other than "Berks-Dauphin Roots" (such as your names), please advise.
Thanks and best regards,
L. Harvey Kirk III

I did find where it came from..a death cert. Another instance of someone not knowing their mother's maiden name.Could you transfer Jacob & Eliza to me? I can fix the names (it is Carsley) & maybe add some more info. Thanks..Kit

Eliza Crosley Ulrich
I looked at her memorial some time ago before you added the maiden name. Her sister is my 2nd great grandmother. I've been researching their father whom I have as Charles Carsley, but he has many variants, Corsley being one of them. Can you tell how you know she is a Carsley/Corsley. Thanks so much!

Jacob B Snyder Findagrave Error
Hello, To make a long story short, I had to do a lot of research to find out who was the Jacob Snyder died in May/year unknown/per an obit I saw in Berlin, MD antique shop. I discovered it was Jacob B Snyder buried in Wyomissing Hills Mausoleum per his death certificate and Obituary. I added him to Findagrave. Then a moment ago I see he is listed as being buried in another cemetery:
Westlawn/Berks Co/Memorial Mausoleum. Findagrave lists these cemeteries separately. Are they actually the same cemetery? They have different addresses. Appreciate your thoughts,

RE: Paul Berlet Inquiry
Thank you so much for getting back to me. I am a descendant through his son Jacob. I joined the DAR this year and had Jacob added as a new patriot...I guess I'm the only one in his line that has an interest :(

During the course of my research I pulled information on Paul the son (it wasn't always easy trying to figure out which Paul the info was for). Once you get settled and fully unpacked, I'd be interested in seeing if we had info we could "swap" with each other. I've been exchanging info with a descendant of Anna Elizabeth's. He didn't have anything on Jacob or his line but did have some info on Paul the father. Let me know if you're interested in comparing notes.

I hope you and your family have a safe and healthy holiday!
