Bio and Links
September, 2014
I will have limited computer access during September. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him. It is very helpful having any plot information.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

As time allows, I am willing to do some Oregon obituary research for others. This is my form of 'Pay It Forward'.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

RE: Paul & Olive Poling
I actually created the pages for the Polings - Sheri didn't check first

photos for Paul and Olive Poling
Ann, I was just creating memorial pages for Paul and Olive and for Charles and Ann Poling (their children) when Sheri requested the photos - sorry but they are all completed - she popped up those requests before checking to see that I had created the pages - -

RE: Edith Marie Wiedmann Abraham
Ann: What a thoughtful thing for you to do to insure there is a good picture on Edith's Memorial. I really appreciate all the work the volunteers do to make this website such a wonderful resource.
Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

If possible to gain ownership of this site I would greatly appreciate it. He is my Uncle, he is a brother to Wallace Guy. Wallace is my father. I have several individuals that I can link to these two to help others reconcile relationships.

Ann I found Keith and a Wallace Guy in Greenwood Cemetery in Astoria. Do you have a Wallace? If you do I but him in Find A Grave hope you like the pictures. Wes
