Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE - I will NOT process edits or transfer requests that are left in my messages. PLEASE SEND AN SAC for these requests!

Due to a new employment situation, I do not have the opportunity to be online as often as I have in the past. I am still an active member and will address your SACs as quickly as possible, but it may not be immediate, so please bear with me! Thanks!

I'm Mandy, and I'm a happily married mother of one living in central VA. I've always loved cemeteries, and thanks to this site I've found a great reason to spend my free time there!! Any nice weekend or evening you might run into me and my lovely assistants (son and dogs) at a cemetery in the area.

Currently I am working on documenting, in its entirety, Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, VA. It is the second largest cemetery in Virginia, behind Arlington. This may take a while! I have to give credit to the many members who have listed memorials from Blandford already: Paula, Barbara, George, and many others, but most of all Susan - you are the best!

To my knowledge, I am of no relation to the memorials I've created, except for those listed here. If you find any errors or omissions in any of them, please feel free to contact me and I will correct them expediently.

I prefer that you use the Suggest a Correction function under the "Edit" tab to request additions/changes or transfers - it makes it much easier for me to find the specific memorial that way. If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send! If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)

RE: Caspary
I have attached a photo of Katherine Schweitzer on her profile. There is quite a bit of info floating around about the Caspary family but not many pictures. If you find any, please let me know.

Correction To Previous Message
Hello again Mandy G.,
In my previous public message, I indicated that the contributor who is not longer active due to a stroke is P Norris....that should have been F Norris.
Thanks again for any help that you can provide in this matter,

Question RE: Editing Function
Hello Mandy,
You have been so helpful in the past that I thought you might be able to answer a question for me. You have a lot more experience with Find A Grave than I do. I sent Find A Grave an email, but have not heard back. I recently researched and made a lot of edit recommendations to memorials created by P Norris. The memorials are for individuals buried in Blandford Cemetery. I noticed when looking at P Norris's profile that he is now inactive due to a stroke. My question is if he does not go into his web page and approve the edits that I have made, will someone else at the Find A Grave home office be able to intervene and approve them. I have put a lot of work into the research and hope that my work is not in vain.
I hope that you can help me.
