Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries.

I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.

Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.

Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

Peter Jackson Obituary
Thanks for adding the obit of Peter Jackson to his memorial. It's great to see the confirmation that his wife Susan was a Garn because my research on records in Ashland Co., Ohio, had convinced me that Peter's wife was Susan Garn and that they had settled in Adams Co., Indiana. I appreciate your work.

Thanks for the info. I will do some research at the cemetery office and make corrections as necessary. There are two different plots involved here. Maybe she was moved from one to the other and the previous plot was not corrected. Thanks again. Dean

RE: updates
Yes, I did know about this but since you do not get notified when the requests are sent...I don't always think to look for them. I really do like the new system except for the lack of notification.
