Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a great-grandmother who started family research about 1990. I have pretty much completed the family histories of myself and my husband, but once in awhile a new relative shows up, and that is always exciting.

Find A Grave has been a valuable resource for me, and I like to contribute whenever I can, hopefully to provide information for other researchers.

I am not in a race to compile a large number of memorials. I try to find and add information that makes the memorials more meaningful, and I am always grateful for further information from contributors.

I may or may not adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines for transfers, depending on the individual circumstances. I do not understand the mind-set of those contributors who insist on following the Find A Grave "rules". If your person does not appear as a leaf on my family tree, there is a good chance that I will transfer, so ask ....

RE: Troy & Helen Hopson photos
I am unaware of any discussion regarding the duplication of photos. I just checked both memorials and saw only my picture. I am always willing to remove any photo that I have added.

RE: Esther Rome
The cemetery is:

Temple Beth Hatfiloh

If you still have trouble finding it you can transfer the memorial to me and I'll move it and transfer it right back to you.

You're not alone. Having four cemeteries look like one big cemetery has thrown a lot of people off. One member wandered around snapping photos in all four but created the memorials in Masonic. It took me weeks to get Edit to move them all to their correct cemetery.

Amen Darlene
Girl, I want to thank you for you Last 2 paragraphs of your BIO. I am 100% agreeable with you [word for word] (Amen). I have transferred 10th cousin because they were not my family. To me these glorified people do not understand that they keep all their POINTS even if they transfer. To me it would make a person look better to show they did transfer. so much for this.
Thank you for adding Obit.

Do not give up as am still researching for more info. I have the Oregon birth info. on both Rosa and Earl, article on their golden wedding anniv. party, as well as obit of daughter, Doris Hazel Duckett and about 10 members of her (siblings)family. I will try and get copy of marriage certif. as soon as library opens next Weds. I have a book at home with many marriages only up to 1915 so of no use on this. Will type & send copies of the obits to Craig and Kim to add to memorials when have time.
Will eventually take this file to C.C.F.History Society library when done for others to use in research.

RE: Hinckley
Do you know where you got the information that the father of Georgiana Hinckley Landrum (#20863420) was E Russell Hinckley? He is the one that we are interested in. He was instrumental in starting our town, Walnut, Iowa. Would you have an obituary for her? Thanks for your prompt reply.

Are you related to Georgiana Hinckley Landrum (#20863420)? Our genealogy society is working on her parents, Frances and Enoch Russell Hinckley. Thanks, Karen

Nathan "Ned" Molinek
Darlene, just received your 3 emails, perfect. I knew he was always referred to as Ned. I will add all of your information to his bio and list you as the source. I guess you meant Orlow, 'Austria'? It will take a few days. Check back if you want, to see if it looks good to you. Good luck with Joyce. We all need kind contributors. Thanks so much for adding to these memorials, that was a surprise. I have had edits declined, even for the correct death date. I'm still learning, but I've done a lot of census research on my family and friends where I do Know the 'Truth' and I see erroneous information. My G Grandfather and his children, in one census, shows all born in the wrong place. Markers, 5 of 30 at first were incorrect.

Take care,
