Did you know ancestry purchased FAG in 2013?
I am a pluviophile, taphophile, genealogist, and good "cemeterian"!
I have completed surveying and photographed 3 small cemeteries (Spanaway Cemetery, Spanaway Lutheran Cemetery & Rainier Cemetery), and Fir Lane and do some background work. I also take pics on vacations now because it's addicting. Of course I have entered as many family as I can:)
I never say I'm perfect, so just drop a kind note if there needs to be corrections made or a picture retaken:)

I have no information on a Eary Harlan. You may have Eary and my dad Earl mixed-up. My dads first wife was a Lucille.
I don't know Eary Harlan

|Sharon Johnson||Thank you|
Long story but had you not pictured this tombstone I would never have made progress on this family line as it gave me the spelling and indication of where to search next. Thank you for all your hard work!
|Franny ||RE: William Bisping|
I put the tombstone picture on your memorial and deleted mine

|J Schwald Regan||P.S.|
My error, this was Ed, Kropf Jr.'s son's memorial. At any rate. Thank you again.
|J Schwald Regan||Thank you|
Thank you for transferring Ed Kropf, Sr.'s memorial to me. His son, Ed, Jr., appreciates it as well.

Hi Boojee.. I very much appreciate your newly added photo for Firlane, of 'Garden Of Oaks'. It's a great photo. Also, how thoughtful of you to give the perfect flowers to Helga and Howard, who are in that section.
Thank you - thank you Boojee, for updating the memorial for Marilyn Waters, memorial # 126003824. I appreciate your work on creating memorials to help others find family!

You're welcome cousin.
I have been adding obits (from 1929-1964) to fill in the birth/death date information for the memorials in St. Pats. There are still quite a few that I can't find because of the missing years on Ancestry. I copied 200+ of obits/marriage announcements while at the MC library in October that range from mid 1960s to early 2000s. I still have quite a few of those to go through for Cerro Gordo Co. Hopefully some of these will add more info to St. Pats, otherwise, I will have do some more research at the court house & library for those dates.
