RE: Edna Hasenbank
Hi, Rod,

I think your solution sounds good. And although I usually don't like repurposing data fields, I think that using the birth name in the middle name box is a good solution.

I saw something about this in the forums not too long ago, and the word from the curators was that it was up to the memorial manager to decide who got parental "billing" in those rare instances we have where we actually know who both sets of parents are.

I would hyperlink the unlinked parents to make it easier to access.

The code for doing that is:

< a href="memorial url" >Name Here< /a>

Remove the spaces before and after carats.

I'll try it here just in case I can get the actual code for you to copy, paste, and fill in the blanks. If garbage follows you'll know what happened. :)

Thanks much for taking care of this!

Hi Rod
Is their a phone number of the cemetery or the person in charge that I might be able to call and talk to. I am 80 years old and trying to get everything found for the generations to follow.
Thank you for all of your help.
take care Jan

Hi Rod
Were you ever able to find any thing on where our Grandmother is buried? Like the plot number and block number. She may have a unmarked grave, but they have to know where they buried her on a old map.
Again we thank you for the newspaper article you found and put in. Her grand children and great grandchildren would like to put some form of a stone on her grave site.
Thank you again

RE: Union County Graves
Thanks. You have a picture of a headstone that is whole. Right now, it's on the ground in 3 pieces, with the base still standing. I don't know what happened. The one I'm referring to is Bertha Lunden. It will be interesting to go through your photos and find what I need. All the pictures I would have on hand, are covered in flowers because they were taken Memorial weekend usually. Thank you for taking your time to take these photos and posting them on here for all to see.

Hi, I'm looking for photos of graves in Big Springs Cemetery. Also, would you know of any sites that I could find obituaries for 1800's?
