Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... I transfer listings to family or other good reasons if you can update them, unless related to me, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most will be granted.

IMPORTANT: If sending information to add, please give source of information. Without sources, sorry, but I will not add information. With new quick edits, this is still important. Unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source.

Find-A-Grave is an extension of my long time hobby of genealogy. I've researched the Barrick line and published a book on Johann Nicholas Barrick and his descendants, originating in the Cumberland & Perry County areas of Pennsylvania. I've searched many graveyards, seen stones that were in such disrepair, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. When I found this site, I thought it would be a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica for future genealogists.

If you find errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add, I'll review them and add as appropriate. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

I'm a volunteer photographer for the area. If you have a photo that is better than any I have posted, please post it, let me know via the "hint" and I will delete my photo if appropriate.

For anyone interested in family history, or genealogy in general, "The Storytellers" is a must see link. Original Author - Della M. Cummins Wright and Modified by - Della JoAnn McGinnis Johnson and Tom Dunn, tells it all in such a beautiful way...

Thanks, Carrie, She has a death certificate, date of death the 29th and thus the dates and place of death.

RE: Doubling Gap
you are welcome--if you are interested in any of the photos in larger resolution, let me know--I will keep them on my computer for a short time. The front of Bertha Thumma's stone seemed a little faded or faint unfortunately.

Thank you, once again, for the Obituary on Mary Myers.
Maybe I will get this family 'linked' together one if these days...

Just went through my Memorials and want to let you how 'Thankful' I am for the numerous amount of obituaries you have given me to post on my 'Ancestors' .... It has been very helpful in furthering my research...

You have been one of the 'Best' Findagrave friends I have met!!

Byers & Related Memorials

Once again, thanks so much for your quick attention for making memorial edits for the 3-4 suggestions I made yesterday evening. Much, much appreciated. I'm working on the descendants of Levi Shatto and Frances Miller (Miller Meeting House cemetery) and things are coming together with the help of managers such as you.

Best, Barry

This is a request to have a photo removed that you put on a memorial that I have # 84688611. It is not the death certificate of this person. You also placed this on his sister's site which is fine. Thank you, Colette Moore
