Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been transcribing cemeteries for a few years, many here in Somerset County, NJ.
I do a lot of research in Penna, both York County and Snyder County (family/college). I've begun to try to update a Snyder county book (Wagenseller) of Snyder County graves that was published about 1900, focusing on, but not exclusively, those cemeteries NOT included on the Snyder County website.

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members per Find A Grave rules. And if you are not directly related, I do updates once a week. Please use the Edit tab, once per memroial, and I'll add what ever information is appropriate and cite you as the source in the Notes section. PLEASE ONLY ONCE PER MEMORIAL - I cannot be responsible if your multiple requests do not go through, and lately there have been too many requests (multiple pages) to identify duplicate memorials. The issue has been that a subsequent request overwrites a prior request. Hopefully they will eventually fix that. Thanks for your understanding.

Steve - Hopefully your note will keep others from noticing the different dates, etc., and sending you edits. I appreciate you taking time to respond. Keep up the good work!

RE: Holtzapple correction - Snyder Co PA
Hmm. The only correction I sent (I thought) was to remove the wife. Anyway, if it's done, no worries! Thanks for your patience!

RE: Holtzapple correction - Snyder Co PA
I think Sallie is still listed as George's spouse. The correction I sent to correct that was denied. So she now has two spouses. But you're right in all the relationships otherwise!

Hi Steve:

I ended up sending a message to Find A Grave administration to merge the two sets of memorials. Let's see what they do. I'm guessing Nathan is more closely related than I am, so I would certainly defer to his having the memorials. But a couple of yours that he duplicated (Engels) were under the correct spelling and he didn't need to create duplicates.

Thanks for the note. I'll keep you posted.
