Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just started looking into my family tree, but was fortunate enough to have other family members who were interested in the task before me. My family is mostly from the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area and I'm eager to learn as much as I can about them.

Family Names: Borkowski, Gardner, Kagler, Lesawicz, McAfee, Mulherin, Smurl, Tingley, Wasilewski, Yanovitch

Current project : Adding the members of Monument Cemetery in Beverly, N.J. I do about ten a day and I'm about 3/4ths done.

As for photos: I generally allow useage; but I think it's courteous to ask first. If you're rude, don't expect a possitive response. Remember- the volunteers are doing YOU the favor.

As to Edits/transfer requests: Use the Edit tab for the memorial in question. This is what it was designed for. I don't understand why people make extra work for themselves (leaving the memorial page to find the memorial caretaker's page to write a request) and for the person who needs to do the edits/transfers (they have to search their memorials to hopefully find the correct one YOU'RE talking about and if it's a transfer- track down the id number of the person it should go to.) I will not answer any requests left on my wall or in the flowers- so be kind and follow the rules of the site. Also, what was said about photos applies here, the edit tab is to suggest edits- demanding I change something will be seen as rude and will be ignored.

RE: Rhonda Burrows
Good evening! What were you hoping to gain from seeing the stone? The site isn't impossible to get to even though most descriptions claim it's on private property. It's a good walk through the woods and you have to get the ticks off afterwards (yuck!). When I was there a few years ago the grass was quite high in the cemetery itself. If you go, it might be helpful to carry a lite weed-whacker with you to access the stones without being covered in ticks. I'd go back if I weren't 2 hours away!

RE: Hello

Great to hear from you. The weather in the valley is perfect...unfortunately I've temporarily become un-retired and have been alternating between PA and Kissimmee Florida...and Florida in the summer (pardon my French) Expect to be back in PA permanently by the end of October and then maybe some graving before the snow flies. Good hearing from you again.

take care,

RE: Other McMullins
Thank you very much for taking the photo. As for the others I do not know if they're relatives. I will do some investigating and see what i can find out.

Thank you

RE: Paul J McMullin

Yes, he was my grandfather, although I did not know him. If you want to transfer that would be fine.
Thank you very much.

Thank you for taking the time to take the photos of Myra and Edgar's stone and for creating the memorial. I appreciate the time it takes to go out and do this.

I added the picture for a general reference point within the cemetery for finding gravesites. It has worked for me in the past. I removed it as requested.
