|Bio and Links|
I started out here on this site many years ago, and entered a few ancestors. Then returned a couple of years later, added more ancestors and decided to try and contribute to the site by photographing at a local cemetery. After returning to my home state some years ago I became more active in my endeavors. My ancestors are mostly from Ohio and Pennsylvania, and I have tried to enter as many ancestors, relatives and friends that I can find resting places for. |
I am also currently working on recording cemeteries in my home area, as well as those in Blair Co, Pa., my area of interest. My particular passion is recording stones that are 'trying hard to soon become unreadable'.
I try to put as much application into stranger's graves as I would those of my own family, as I consider this a labor of love.
I am a "no-dispositions-unknown" contributor.
Please note - I try to act on SACs within 72 hours. If I do not respond within a week, feel free to resend; I may have missed it. I will not make links, however, to burial unknowns.
In the past I have been very liberal with transfers, including many out-of-guidelines transfers. I loved turning memorials over to family.
Sadly however, having been 'burned' a number of times recently, I am rethinking that policy. Most of the memorials I have happily transferred over have had not one iota of additional information added by the transferee, aside from links, often times to 'burial unknowns.' When things ARE added, they are frequently cut and paste entries from Ancestry or FamilySearch indices, making the memorial unattractive and about about as personable as a baseball score card. Often too, the transferees get bored and wander away from the site, abandoning their memorials and when I find new info to add they never reply.
If you request an out-of-guidelines transfer, I will review your current memorials to see if you are good stewards of them, and base my decision on that. I am very happy to add additional information to 'flesh-out' existing memorials, and if you work with me on that I may later reconsider a transfer that I did not initially grant.

You have taken a wonderful photo of the grave of John Reading, Find A Grave Memorial# 85154805. Awhile back my husband and I looked and looked and could not find his stone. He was in Company C, 120th OVI. I have been researching the 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry for the last 13 yrs in order to identify the men and tell about their lives. I would like permission to use your photos on my site and on any CD or print copy of my research that I will give to the Wayne County library in Wooster OH. I always give credit for the photos.
Thanks for any help.

Check to make sure I made the changes correctly (Memorial# 115803745). I can transfer her to you if you like.

I took the photo of her tombstone in Glendale that I have posted note the brown leaves ....she is next to Gertrude Leggo stone.
As far as the village of Newlyn....its south of Paul village at the top of the hill and anyone searching would know about the location of the other villages. Walking distance if you can get enough wind to go up the hill. There in no cemetery in Newlyn so most were buried in Paul or St. Clares in Penzance.
Next town over Penzance 1 and a half miles along the coast line.
Have you been to Cornwall?
Its a great place to go I got to live there five months.

Forgot to mention I would rather you delete the account for Elsie if you can....I created one for her...I think that is what you had mentioned???
So confusing when we...ME ...making too many sites for the same person...
You have done great work on your entries....thanks again
|Linda Mann||RE: Elizabeth Elsie Mann|
Fixed my double accounts last night....at least am still working on getting rid of most...they did merge my account since I couldnt access about 8 of them from when I first started adding data....and lost the yahoo account.
