NOTE: If contacting me about one of my entries, please identify that person by the Findagrave memorial number located at the bottom of that person's page. That saves me much time in looking them up. Thanks........|
I'm a long time family genealogist, have made use of many genealogy web pages, and have decided it's time to do my part as a volunteer, as many others have done, by placing sometimes very difficult to locate birth and death dates in Findagrave. Some of my entries are for family but the most are from 'just going down the rows' in cemeteries available. My hope is that I'm helping at least a few unknown genealogists with information.
A word of caution to the unsuspecting:
Along with obituaries, gravestones are NOT infalliable in accuracy, most often having a partially incorrect date for the birth date. My experience has shown gravestones to be inaccurate in one date or another at least 5% of the time. Birth and marriage dates in obituaries have a higher rate of inaccuracy. Even death dates on gravestones are subject to error as I have found in many years of researching.

New Feature on Find A Grave
I found out a new feature on Findagrave. Go to the Contributor Page on your name and look at the Edit Tab at the top right. If you click on that it will show request for you to accept or decline for adding birth and death dates, locations and states. Doesn't allow any connection to parents yet. Hope this info helps.

Hi Mr. Myers, Thank you for being a Find A Grave volunteer. You have posted a picture for Restwood Memorial Gardens in Hinton, West Virginia, but the picture you have posted (it is a picture of a mausoleum) is located at Greenbrier Burial Park, also in Hinton, WV. Would you care to remove the picture posted for Restwood and post it on Greenbrier Burial Park? Thank you so much. D.Mack

|Chris Myers||John Reidmier|
My name is Chris Myers. My father is Lowell, my grandfather is John, and my great grandfather is Herman. I believe that we are related. According to my dad, you are a descendent of Herman's brother, John.
Thank you for your contributions to information and photos of our extended families. I'm just starting to get into some genealogical work. What sources have you found to be most helpful in your work? Have you been able to find out anything about Johannes (John) Reidmier (memorial # 52434298) and Juliana Roth Myers Boss (memorial # 52402832) in Baden Baden, Germany? Thanks.

Thanks for getting back to me Gary. I thought maybe you lived in the Pittsburgh area. I'll try to find someone else. I do appreciate your photo of entrance marker and location description though.

|DIGGER||St Anthony's Cemetery|
Gary, I was wondering if you could locate and possible photograph any type of marker that may be present for a man by the name of OTTO KUTCHER. He passed away in January of 1935 and was laid to rest in St Anthony's in Shaler Twp. The record says Section C, Lot No. 28, Grave No. 1.
He was a Great Grandfather and there is very little known about him. If I know his grave is marked that is a start. Thanks if you can do that....Digger

|Lisa Stewart||RE: Steimle|
Death Records (10 years ago) and only found Clara, Karl and Josephine. I haven't started any serious research yet--still trying to get everything input.
I am not exactly sure how this site works. Could I go to Greenwood and take pictures of the headstones and add them to what you have posted? I know Corey and I found them once (before digital photography was popular).
|Lisa Stewart||RE: Steimle|
Yes, I made the connection after I posted the message. I knew the name sounded familiar but there is another Meyers on the Stewart side and I hadn't gotten to the point of adding all the Steimles. (Sometime over the last 10 years my computer files were lost. I am in the process of re-entering everything.)
I am at a dead-end with the Stewarts and that's how I stumbled on the findagrave site. Can I ask where you found all the detailed information on birth/death dates? I searched the Kent Count
I am working on the Steimle family tree. Thank you for all of the information you posted. John G. Steimle (65489137) was my husband's great grandfather. Since the entry was so detailed I am wondering if you might be related. His grandparents were Arnold and Thelma Steimle.

Dear Gary- Thanks so much for transferring the memorials of my great grandparents, Charles and Mary Ida Fisher (#53844883). I was able to add all the wonderful obituaries and information we found during our recent genealogy research trip. I so appreciate all your help! Best Wishes, Jessica Hackenberg
