Bio and Links
I live on the southside of Pittsburgh. I am focused on picturing complete cemeteries. I have almost 300 thousand pictures of 170 cemeteries. I have begun uploading thru the bulk upload beta program. Some of my cemeteries require transcribers with a language proficiency e.g. Yiddish and Serbian, hoping that FAG will add this to their wish list.
My pix are primarily to provide info. I am not embarrassed if you want to submit a request for a better picture; then I will remove my pic.
The Beta program for uploading large files, as most of mine are, has caused a good number of issues. Please contact me with any issues or solutions. Thanks

RE: Beth Abraham
Hi Bill, thanks for the offer to transfer, but there's no reason to do so as I am not connected to any of the persons buried at Beth Abraham. I do enjoy browsing Find A Grave memorials and adding info where I am able through translations of Hebrew tombstone inscriptions, bringing in other sources where appropriate. Your tremendous work on Find a Grave is much appreciated!
Regards, Tevye

RE: Memorials
No I don't think you had a hand it making memorials via the new photo upload system.

At least not the ones that were my pictures

The person looked at the photos that need transcribed. She then went and created the memorial so now they are under her name. Then she process the photo. Instead of her just processing the photo transcription to create a memorial for me she bypassed the system.

RE: Memorials
I am not interested in having any memorials. But, I would like the ones that someone is creating off of my pictures that I put up to be transcribed.

The person is looking at the pictures then creating a memorial, then indexing the pictures. Which then goes to the memorial she put up there.

RE: Monongahela Cemetery
All A's and B's correction have been sent to you via the edit tab. If it was either duplicate in Monongahela, or belonged in St. Mary's, date change, spelling change etc. Corrections should be in your email of edit tab. That was a while ago they were sent. I do remember out of the letter A's I think 17 of the 19 of the ones that were loaded had to be corrected.

I am not going over them again.

I send at least 4 hours a day working on tombstone picture and find a grave doing my own stuff. I try my best to made sure it is accurate.

It should be easy for you to check for duplicates when all the find a grave memorials are up. Because yours will be it bold blue.

Yes it may take you 20 hours or more to correct the issues but it will be time well spent.
