Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired state employee who is conducting research regarding my family, primarily of the Altoona area. My line may be connected with the "Michael" line (prolific in the Altoona area) that originated in York County.

I am also conducting research regarding the Lutheran Churches of Perry County, Pennsylvania and the pastors who served them.

All of my photos are in the public domain. Most are marked as such in the captions, but it is possible that I missed a few. So, feel free to use them as you wish. However, I would be unhappy if they were to appear on pay sites.

I'd like to encourage other contributors to do the same. After all, you can't take it with you.

In some cases, especially where the maintainer of the memorial is unresponsive or inactive, I have included material in the photo caption concerning the deceased.

Please feel free use the edit feature to request changes or transfers.

Transfer Possible?

I had asked about a transfer of James C. Miller #139633405 as it is my wife's 2nd Gr grandfather. I just noticed than you have 6 others that are all on one tombstone in Mt. Moriah Cemetery too. They are all Millers: Annie Katherine (135732441), Esther May (135732411), Jane W. (135732587), Robert S. (135732509), Stephen (135732362) and Ulysses Stephen (135732386). Could you possibly transfer these too?

Thanks for all your work in inputting these into the find-a-grave database.

I have discovered that this individual is duplicated in two different cemeteries by two individuals. There is yours and there is Winter Birds PA Memorial #132416176. It is obvious that one of you has copied the others photo for the duplicate memorial in a different cemetery. Please work this out between the two of you and remove the memorial in the incorrect location. Thank you.

RE: Miss Toni Fisher 33064045
Hi John,

I believe I have successfully transferred management over to you of Miss Toni Fisher's memorial. I am so happy to have someone close to her turn it over to!

Please, continue to pursue having her memorial recognized as deserving the 'famous person' designation; she deserves the recognition!

I thank you for being patient and gracious with me in getting this accomplished.

Thank you again and good luck with the pursuit!

RE: Toni Fisher Monzello 33064045
Hello again John.

I would like to turn over management of this memorial to you, although I am not quite sure how to go about it. I would of course, like to know if you would like for me to do this first, so I will await your response here first.

I also submitted in the past, a request for this memorial to be move to the 'famous persons' listing so that due recognition would be made for Miss Fishers accomplishments and fame- I didn't get anywhere with the request at the time.

I will await your response, and I thank you for filling in the missing facts. I will need to copy down the info you supplied and make your requested changes and promise to do that ASAP.

RE: Edit sent on 8/16/2014
Please forgive me for not responding back in August. There has been illness in the family. It is best if you message me here rather than on email.
Thank you

All done. I didn't see Harry Frees in Charles Evans so I had to find his death certificate and add him in there.

Sorry I didn't see your earlier request for an edit. We moved on the last day in April and May was a crazy month. Maybe I missed it or put it aside when for when things settled down, and forgot to follow through.

Anyway, thanks for the reminder and the info.

RE: Edits await you
John, it's not there, but thanks for pointing that tab out to me. I have two other edits there I didn't know about!

What was the edit? I'm working on the site now and will do it now if you send it.
