Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the history and genealogy of anyone with the Jonas surname for over 30 years. I have also transcribed several cemeteries in Wythe County and Smyth County, Virginia. At this time I am working on the cemeteries of Morrisville, Wake County, North Carolina. Am also working on building a data base for anyone living in the Moravian towns of Bethabara, Bethania, Hope, Friedberg, Friedland, and Salem from 1753 through the 1800s.

Oops, forgot...
The name variations can be added to the bio field area and will be searchable with search engines such as Google. So if there are name variations they can be added there and still be found by researchers, etc.

Naming Conventions
I sent you several SACs for memorials you created with brackets, parentheses, or multiple name variations in one name field.

When searching a cemetery or the website the variations and symbols added to the name fields throw off the search feature making it difficult to impossible to find the memorial you have created.

Thank you for correcting these.

"What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name... Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name."

Marie Jonas
You might want to check the birth date listed for Marie Jonas. I noticed the date on the memorial (1-21-1905) does not match the headstone (1-12-1905). Not sure which is right.

Could you just transfer her to me? Her #5863355 and mine is #47625418. I can't connect her to family members. She is a family member.

Could you change a few things about her? Death date 20 Oct. 1935, Cripple Creek, Wythe, Va. Her parents were Nehemiah Frye and Lucinda Eastwood. If you need proof, look at the Wythe Co. 1860 census for her.

Please remove the bracket from his name ~ it makes it impossible to retrieve when searching.

Thank you and Happy Hunting,

Jonas Family
I see that you are part of the Jonas family! Elaine Jonas, daughter of Raymond Jonas, and granddaughter of Peter Jonas is my mother-in-law. I have been working on the family tree and she has shared some old photos. Maybe we can collaborate?

Douglas, first thank you for all of your work on the Jonas and Igo family. It has been very helpful. I did notice though, that my Grandmother Mary Ellen Igo Bell born Nov 03, 1891 and died May 24, 1976 is not listed under children for Patrick and Emily Igo. Again, thank you for all you do.

Many Thanks!
Thank you, Douglas, for answering my request so quickly! I really appreciate it!
