Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love this site! I appreciate the work of people who make these memorials and those who take the photos to match. Because of the work of others I have found several 'long-lost' ancestors. I don't know that I would have found them any other way. Thank you to all who have made an entry, taken a photo, made a transfer, or created links between family members.

I am a retired teacher and I live in Michigan. I have been making entries and taking photos of the cemeteries around me in several counties. I'm happy to make edits and links and transfers.

I'm not the best photographer around, but I'm learning as I go. Please feel free to use any photo I've taken.

Hi Laura,
Will you please delete the following two (2) memorials. They are duplicates. We can't delete them since you originally created the memorials.

Robert J. Van Dine, Sr. Mem. #94192275
Gloria Mae Van Dine Mem. #94192319

Thanks for your help.

the new cemetery deal
I believe that it may have taken care of itself. But thanks anyway.

adding a new cemetery
I need some help. I've done this before and know how to get where I need to be, BUT the darn thing isn't working.

I am trying to add "St Andrew's Presbyterian Church Cemetery on Simcoe St., Niagara-on-the-Lake, Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada" wouldn't let me add it, and Lincoln County isn't in the pull down list.

What's a girl (if 74 is still a girl) to do? LOL

You can call me (I don't give out my e-address) at (574) 216-8111. Please help me! Or better yet just enter the darn cemetery for me.

I am wondering if it would be possible to transfer this memorial to me as this is my husband's grandmother. Thank you!

Anna Veronica O'Neil Owens #75989811
She is now linked to the correct parents but you did not remove the incorrect parents names from her bio section. Please correct the bio on #75989811.

Tomb Picture
Some years ago, you posted a picture of Margaret E. McUmber's (#66011051) tombstone; thank you for doing so

Since then however, her sister was buried there and someone else has come alone and posted an updated picture of the tombstone that now include's the name of Margaret's sister

Would you mind deleting your older tombstone picture?

Thank you,
Fellow Graver

Anna Owens #75989811
Please correct this Anna...she is Anna Veronica O'Neil Owens, not Anna Elizabeth Strohl Owens. Also, she is the daughter of Charles O'Neil and Anna Passeno, not Andrew and Louise Strohl. She was married to Fergus Owens on June 24, 1924 in Cheboygan, not about 1925 as stated in her husband's bio. What a mess this person is and she has links to other people. Do you even know if she was married to Raymond Puffer? Is so, when?
