Creator of website  www.ezraeby.com  a website dedicated to updating and correcting the work of Ezra E. Eby who published "A Biographical History of Waterloo Township" (Ontario, Canada) in 1895-1896.
In addition to Mennonite and other pioneer families in the Waterloo area, the website will now also feature Mennonites from York and Lincoln Counties (Ontario, Canada), as well as Amish and Amish background families from Waterloo, Oxford and Perth Counties in Ontario and beyond.

"Findagrave is one of my favouretist websites in THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD"!

With that said, there are a number of things that just downright annoy me.
For the most part, I work together with other gravers who create quality pages.
What is a quality page?
The ideal page has all, or most, of the fields complete. 
Above all it has, in most cases, a photo of the gravestone - or a photo request submitted.

Here are some things that irk me.
1.  Individuals who add no or very few gravestone photos.
2.  Those who ask me to link to pages with no documentation a person is
      actually interred there. I will ignore these requests.
3.  Gravers who request transfers outside of Findagrave guidelines. I gladly 
     make exceptions for a few of my findagrave friends who have clearly
     demonstated they will add in a significant way to what I have done.
     I am unimpressed by those who accumulate HUGE numbers of pages they              
     did not create themselves - just because they are "related". 
4.  Gravers who add photos which cannot be read.

C'mon folks! Let's do it right, or not at all.

RE: re nathan cirillo
I transferred Nathan's memorial to Find A Grave. That way IF the duplicate memorial was posted after mine they will know ( they would have the times) & they will have it deleted. If mine was posted later then maybe findagrave can add the messages of sympathy & such to the other memorial. Hopefully in future, when someone adds a memorial findagrave will add the time with the date and solve the problem.

RE: Nathan Cirillo page
Before I posted the memorial for Corp. Nathan Cirillo I first did a search to see if someone had already posted a memorial for him and found nothing and that is why I added it. I am presently attempting to find a contact email to findagrave in order to establish the time of day both memorials were posted. I will certainly delete the memorial if the other contributor posted before me.

Parkview Cemetery in Waterloo, ON
I am going to have about a week of intense tombstoning near the end of October in Canada.

If you'd like help with your 7 requests in Parkview, please try to get plot information. I won't have the time I would usually have (I take an entire cemetery here in the states).

If you call and get the plot info...added...then please leave a message on my Bio Page. I'll do my best.

Rivett, Keith W
Hello,

You had a photo request for Keith W Rivett.
I have fullfilled the request as well as made pages for the others which are on the same memorial stone.
If these people are of relation/importance to you please let me know and I will transfer ownership to you.

The only one I have not created a page for is listed on the stone as 'Infant dau. COILA' as there is no other information. I can create the page and add a picture if you'd like, and transfer it to you.

Let me know.

Thanks,
Jenn

Hello!
I am in the process of adding headstone photos to the memorials in the Mount View Mennonite Cemetery, I hope that is okay.

Unfortunately, sections of the cemetery have been taken over by lilac bushes complicating headstone photography.

Thank you for everything you are doing to preserve the memory of those that have gone before.

Do you have any idea of where your
requested Coopers are in the Cemetery.

I was there last week and did not see them.

66085103 Two years ago you attached an image to her memorial and I wondered if you could possibly attach it to her husbands as well which I have just created.

Greatly appreciated
Thanks, Drew
