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):
The Sinking of the USS Conestoga A US Naval tugboat that disappeared from outside the San Francisco Bay in 1921, and was never heard from again. It was believed that the ship sank 2,000 miles away from where it was discovered in the Greater Farallones Islands in Oct. 1915.
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.
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.
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!
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY MEMORIALS, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER WITH YOUR QUERY.
Eva Spengler McGuire-Cox Corrections This is to correct the INCORRECT INFORMATION provided by the Find A Grave Report Created by: Rebecca Ewing Peterson Record added: Jan 06, 2013 Find A Grave Memorial# 103155665; Glenwood Cemetery, Houston, Harris, TX
1. Eva was born Eva Spengler, not Eva Spongler to Adolph and Justina, not Annie, Spengler. Justina's maiden name is unknown.
2. Eva was born in 1842, not 1845. She was born in Germany not in Detroit, MI. On one census Detroit was reported as her place of birth; however, most likely this was done as her attempt to identify with non-German society. Proof of her birth is the New Orleans immigration ship manifest record as would have been reported to the ship capitan by her father and on their German emigation documentation: Name: E Spengler Age: 6 Est. Birth Year: abt 1842 Gender: Female Ship Name: Seth Sprague Arrival Date: 23 Nov 1848 Origin: Germany Port of Departure: Antwerp
Conestoga Greetings, I have sent you several edits for the crew. I once got fussed at for too many edits because someone duplicated an entire cemetery so I stopped at around 10 edits per Find A Grave rules. My information comes from NOAA_Conestoga_Biographies.pdf found at http://www.history.navy.mil/content/dam/nhhc/browse-by-topic/disasters-and-phenomena/NOAA_Conestoga_Biographies.pdf If you wish to add birth and place information along with biographical info. All the information should be public information and free to use coming from the Navy.
