Bio and Links
Bio Photo Dec. 11, 2014 - The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.

Interesting projects I have been working on. (Newest work at top of list):

Murulla Railway Disaster A midnight train collision in the Upper Hunter Valley on Sept. 13, 1926 near Murrurundi, New South Wales. The different cemeteries are interlinked.

Victims of the Sunshine Station Railway Disaster Forty-four people died when one train ran into another in a crowded train station in suburban Melbourne in 1908. Newspaper articles and photos of those killed. Hyperlinks at the bottom of each page will carry you to the different cemeteries involved.

Coranderrk Aboriginal Cemetery, Healesville, Victoria, Australia. Amazing 150 year old photos of the residents of this Aboriginal Station, who believed that Queen Victoria had given the reserve to them in perpetuity.

Dom St. Petri, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery, Chichester, England with photos.

Chichester Cathedral, West Sussex, England with photos.

National Cathedral of Denmark, Copenhagen. With translations.

Sankt Petri Kirke, Copenhagen.

Oude Kerk, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

China Ashes is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

Royal Naval Cemetery - Liu-kung-tao

Holy Trinity Cathedral and the story of the ashes there (or are they?)

Taiyuan Massacre Graves

The Rebellion Cemetery of 1900

Yangpu Public Park

Heping Park

Weihsien Civilian Assembly Center

Coming soon: Photographed Bremen and Copenhagen graves!

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

RE: Griffiths and Ada Hughes and the Sunshine Disaster
Hello Rebecca, sorry for the delay. I have transferred ownership of the memorials for Ada and Griffiths Hughes to you so that you can update the information on the Sunshine Station Disaster. I hope you can find photos of Ada and Griffiths! Thank you for all your work on this information.

Thank you for the information to add to Griffiths and Ada (Roberts) Hughes' memorials. I have added the information you provided about the train accident. I had no idea! Thank you.

RE: Elizabeth E. (McCleaster) Thompson
I understand about losing messages. I think you have corrected the problem. Initially you had listed the 2nd marriage of Elizabeth as ending in divorce. On the census of 1880, the daughter Josephine McGowen is listed as divorced, not her mother. You have taken the entry about divorce off her memorial. I also think the marriage actually ended in death of Moses F Thompson. Elizabeth & Moses F. had 2 children, Eva & MF, which she was probably pregnant with at the time of his death. On the 1870 census Elizabeth is listed as head, and I cannot locate Moses that year. Thank you for your help on this family.

I think the picture you have for Charles, is in fact, Harold Sidney Woodall, his cousin.

John Tasman TANNER.
Hi Rebecca,
My recent research on 'John Tasman Tanner' suggests that he is buried at:

Kingston, St. Clement's Anglican Church Cemetery,

and not

King Island Anglican Cemetery, Currie.

I would be most grateful if you could look over this, and see what you think.
With best wishes,
