Bio and Links
Bio Photo It never ceases to amaze me how many people visit or create memorials for deceased people but balk at having a picture of a piece of paper that says someone has died.....?? Just saying!

I started doing research on my family tree around 1995 with my grandmother Dennis.

If you need edits to a memorial I have created please *********PER FAG...POST DOCUMENTATION SUPPORTING YOUR EDIT REQUEST FIRST and then please use the "EDIT" tab.******** It has been said that "Genealogy without documentation is mythology." (THANK YOU SUSAN!!)

As of February 2014 I am currently taking pictures of all the graves in Seaford Odd Fellows Cemetery so that I can enter them on FAG. After I enter everything I will go back and check for duplicates and any other problems. Thanks!

My favorite epitaphs:

Marion Michael Morrison (John Wayne):

Today is the most important thing in life
Comes into us at midnight very clean
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands,
It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Godfrey Beamguard:

Adieu all both far and near, my loving wife and children, For my immortal soul has fled, I now lie numbered with the dead. Remember friends as you pass by, As you are now, so once was I, As I am now, so you must be, Prepare for death and follow me."

RE: Seaford Odd Fellows Short Family Edits
Hey. I don't have time to do that right now, either. If you want to hold off on those edits, it won't hurt my feelings. I understand. I will see what I can do at a later date. Thanks for the work you do.

I had just downloaded the app to my phone. Apparently while trying to figure out how to use it I sent a request unknowingly. Thanks

Hello, I posted a screen shot of ancestry's SS application index as proof of Romalda's parents. I also have copies of the marriage index and a 1920 and 1930 census if you need them. Please delete the SS application index once you make the edit, as it may not be permitted to post.

RE: Sibling Section
Hi Laura, thanks for your reply to my many emails.m
My mother is interred in Wilm. DR at Chester Bethal Methodist Church Cemetery. I have control of her find agrave data. Thanks much for the offer.

Hi Laura, I totally agree about proof so I often reference my sources being birth, marriage and/or death certificates in the person's bio, I just prefer no documents. The reason I had not put Seaford as birthplace was because birth record simply said "near Seaford". But I appreciate your wanting accuracy. thanks!

Hi Laura, I included Seaford as his birth place. Yes I'm one of those contributors who PREFERS not to have documents posted on my memorials. Many feel this way and others want them on their own memorials. I like to include the info in their bio but would ask you kindly if you'd remove his birth and death certificates please? Appreciate your honoring my request. thank you.

RE: Sibling Section
Laura I put my grandfather, Harry Andrew ID # in instead of my great grandfather Henry's ID #. All is straightened out. Sorry for the confusion.
