Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a strong interest in genealogy, both my own and others, and history in general.

Also, I have come to believe that the documentation created here is an historical record, ultimately of value to future researchers.

Therefore, it is extremely important to be accurate and to include as much verified information as possible, including the correct dates and places of birth of those whom we post to cemeteries.

Linking family members - besides indicating familial relationships - shows the patterns of migration and where families settled in different areas.

It is important to post individuals to the correct cemetery, rather than just creating lists of dead people in order to generate enormous numbers credited to our names.

RE: Fassett

I apologize for the error. Please send me the Find a Grave # so I can know which memorial you are referring to.

I will be glad to make the correction.

Hi Cynthia,
About a week ago GrannyT transferred Stephen Torrey's Memorial #23102208 to me. In the process of updating this memorial by adding complete dates and sources, I discovered that there was another Stephen Torrey on FindaGrave, your memorial #69079689. GrannyT created her Stephen memorial on Nov. 25, 2007, while yours was created 4 years later on Nov. 29, 2011. Would you please delete your memorial.

Thank you.

I tried to photograph the requests in Delhi St Cemetery but was unable to access the cemetery. However I DID manage to photograph the graves of Winifred, Phoebe and Florrie (grand-daughters?)in Marfleet Lane. All UK Jewish cemeteries are kept locked and I was able to access here thanks to two ladies already there. I will try to get a key to both graveyards and try again

Cause of death
No problem, Cynthia...sometimes records can't be found at all for people and I find its helpful to list cause of death. Especially for folks who died of consumption. There was a period during the civil war and shortly before and after when that was rampant. Consumption had a lot to do with Tuberculosis. It helps to paint a picture. Whole families could have perished because of it. During the Civil War lots of our soldiers died because of dysentery.
