THANK YOU to those of you who submit photos and information that enhance the memorial. I appreciate your kindness and willingness to share.
You have my permission to use my photos for any noncommercial use. I do this so you can enjoy having something of your family member, even if it's just a photo of your family member's marker.
I am not related to the majority of the families of the memorials I manage. I'm not here to collect a large number of memorials either. I simply add what I find in order to help other people find their relatives. So, except for the ones that are near and dear to me, I am willing to transfer memorials to you.
Genealogy is not done in a bubble. It is a piece of information that was recorded by someone else, someone who doesn't know you, who will probably never meet you and may not even be related to you. It was done just because it may be important to someone someday. Consider doing the same for others. It only takes a moment.
If you are doing family research and think GGGrandpa and GGGrandma are buried in a certain location because that's where they lived, then contact the cemetery and verify it first. You may be surprised how many people are not buried in the location where they raised their family. *Tip: They may be located in a cemetery near the area where one of the children are living.
Please realize that the SSDI does not show where the person died. It shows the last residence recorded at the Social Security Office. Check for a death certificate or the State's Death Record for the location of death.
Eugene Recla Do you know for sure that Eugene Recla is buried at Evergreen Mem Cemetery in Crystal Falls, MI? Another findagrave page has him buried in Jefferson Co, TX. The person managing that grace has a photo of the headstone and they told me he had the same parents as you note on your page for Eugene Recla. The date of death is the same for both your page and that other page.
Memorial# 132779220 Elizabeth Lizzie Wolf Joanne, Thank you so much for adding bio. information to my great Aunt Elizabeth Haley. Your memorial is an important clue that helped me put all the pieces together. I appreciate your time and effort. Judy
I am a researcher and editor on Find a Grave. According to Delta County Records: (http://www.deltacountymi.org/pages.php?ID=182) Casper Aberly and his wife Pearl Vogel Aberly are buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Escanaba (Memorials 154096094 and 154096124). It also states that information on Pearl's obituary. I just wanted to bring this to your attention.
Warren graves at Little Wolf Cemetery I wonder if you might be able to tell me a little more about the location of the Warren Graves. Maria Warren is my great great grandmother and I am planning on searching for her grave and that of the other family members this weekend. I searched for it here but there are no Warrens listed so I am perplexed: http://www.wigenweb.org/waupaca/Lwolfcem/LWS1a2.htm
If I am able to find them I will try to get some decent photographs to contribute.
I've submitted edits which link Glen to his parents: Levi J Butler and Gladys M Heath Butler. This edit contradicts the memorial which lists Glen's mother as Edith Joachim. Until today I believed that Edith was his mother, however, her death record shows her death as Dec 7, 1924. Levi J Butler married my great-aunt, Gladys M Heath, on Oct 2, 1925; Glen was born on Nov 6, 1926. True, when Glen died in a coasting accident, Levi gave Edith Joachim as the name of Glen's mother, and is recorded on Glen's death certificate. He must have been terribly distraught to not remember who gave birth to their dead son. I can only imagine how this error scarred my aunt.
SIngle tombstones Thank you for not only photographing the single tombstones of infants & children, but including the stone in a second photo which shows the parents or other family tombstone nearby in relation to the child's when the graves are laid out in that way.
The second photo just connects the infants/children to their parents in a special way for those of us who do not get to the area where these graves are located.
Neil Hurja 157267961 I just added Neil to Findagrave and linked him to his parents. I noticed that you have added photos and obits for the family - thought you might like to know of the Hurja addition.
