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):

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: David Zachariah Holloway
Thanks for going to so much trouble. I guess I thought that the lengthy message would not fit on the edit tab. No disrespect intended.

Mary Ann GILES.
Hi Rebecca,
I have been doing some further research on Mary Ann GILES and I have just realised that the information that I gave you with regards to her maiden name is incorrect.
She was married twice in her life time. Her maiden names is actually 'STREET' (and not AITCHISON, as I originally told you).
Please accept my sincerest apologies for the mis-information.
With best wishes,

RE: Edits in Glen Innes
Hi Rebecca. I'm sitting in Brisbane and haven't been to any of these wonderful burial grounds which I am researching in the NSW highlands. But before I make a suggestion to someone about possible adjustments to be made, I try to verify my data from several different sources e.g. NSW BDM, AustCemIndex, Cemetery lists published by the cemeteries themselves or a closely related historical society, or Trove articles and notices. But, I'm sure I am also sometimes wrong, and don't mind being told so. All suggestions meant kindly. Kind regards, Robyn

RE: At sea
1. Thanks for your reply and the efforts you've put in on China. That must have been very hard.

2. Wilson J Hunt of Brooklyn, age 28, died 7 Feb 1859 at sea, the "Amaranth". Body delivered to "English Cemetery", Hong Kong, China.

3. I never realized that "At sea" was a search option. DOH! However, he's not there, nor at any country at any date. I even tried Hunt Wilson. The only person on Find A Grave that could possibly be him is this man: I contacted the memorial owner to ask, but this is an enormous cemetery and he probably entered a batch of burials and doesn't know.

Thanks for your help, I truly appreciate it.

Ms. Ewing Peterson--

Thanks for the kind comments. I had posted a photo of Charles White(97739349) and of his marker (I thought). Will try that again. Thanks also for your good work on the portrait of William Rhoades Bly, Sr.(104538865). The revised photo is most acceptable--please leave it and delete the one I uploaded. You reference a photo of my g.mother, Hattie Shields Hatch White (97739252). I have not yet posted a photo of her. Could you mean Phylenia C Sanford Hatch (104536052)? If so, please feel free to work your magic and replace the existing photo. I also have a new site photo with the markers in place. Could you delete the existing site photo and I will add mine? I appreciate your courtesy in leaving my name on the photo, but I do not have a problem with anyone's name on there. The accuracy is the important thing--not the publicity. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into this project for all of us.
