Bio and Links
Bio Photo ( 2013 update) I have been getting some suggestion about how to correctly add information and how I should have inputted my information to my memorials.

Just a little insight as to why they may look different. I started inputting genealogical information & memorials a long long time before FAG became popular(SEE my member since ... date)The resource and the input information forms were much more shorter and very very basic back then. no photos could even be uploaded at the time. No area for maiden names .No marriage dates or links to parents or spouse were available and no one was racing to get the most graves transcribed.I myself sat in a dark room looking through microfilms writing down deaths most of the time on a notepad and imputing the information on a large over sized desk computer.Today I use my phone or Ipad (Times have changed! ) All most all of my cemeteries contain my husband families and the towns they lived in for generations,and often how they intertwined with other families of the same town. I documented them back then simply in case there were other families doing the same researching as myself at the time. I haven't really added any current graves in a very long time. With the sudden influx of popularity to transcribing cemeteries has made it not necessary for me to do so. SO Yes, I used abbreviations once upon a time! Because at that time there was no input spaces for the information and not because I was lazy. For the most part it was transcribed in proper Genealogical short hand with a slight learning curve, or how the original document listed the information mistakes and all. (which is why in genealogy you track down as many documents as you can because no 2 documents will say the same.)
With that said. I still want to hear from people about making changes and making new links or adding photos. I really do ! But at 44 not only am I limited with my time because I am now a Full time grand mother, I work full time ,and I have been a full time college student for the pass 3 years.Time is often too short for me. Be patient I will make the correction. If you want memorials linked it would help greatly to have have the memorial numbers to be added ready to go! instead of just telling me who the relatives are and having to search for them. TY!!

Thanks for reading my rant!

Happy Hunting !

Judi

RE: Orillia Brumley memorial
Quite alright. It just kind of caught me off guard.

Orillia Brumley memorial
Bravo for going to college. I did read your rant. I was going through some records and researching my Gr-Aunt trying to find if her grave has been added to the site. Still no luck but I did run across an error. My cousins link (Edward Borgman)in Bosworth Cemetery in Michigan shows Orillia Brumley as a parent. Orrillia died 1841 and Edward was born in 1912. The memorial number shows 8783009. When you get a chance, and I know how busy you are, me too, could you correct that. Thank you. I get my fingers on the wrong keys often, especially on the cell phones keyboard. Good luck in whatever you do.

Eunice Stone Smith
Would like to contact any relatives of Eunice (Stone) Smith 1823-1891, sister of Mary E. (Stone) Bradley 1847-1889. Were they daughters of Caleb & Abigail (Fenner) Stone, and granddaughters of an Oliver Stone? Thank you

Wanda Fields (Ackels) Perry
Hi Judi,
I received your suggestion about Wanda's father. The link below is the Ma. death record on Ancestry.Com and it lists the father as George Ackels and the mother as Aneda McEwen.

Soloman Cushman
Hi Judi: Thanks for your good works. Here is a correction for you.
You have "Soloman" Cushman, d. 1858 buried in Monson, MA Cemetery. His grave stone clearly spells his name "Solomon".

Also, I am trying to fit him into the Cushman genealogy. I think his wife's name was Mary E. and he had a daughter named Emily. I see Emily in the same cemetery. Any idea who his parents were?

Nellie Slauson
My name is Melissa Hendricks. I am trying to get my fathers side of my family tree straight, and I found you. I believe Harold "Harry" Hendricks is my grandfather. I found his page, and then found Nellie's. If you are related to Nellie, then I guess I found a long lost relative.

Do you have any information about Hellen Mills? She and Harold were never married but had kids, my father being one of them.

Hi Judith:

James Hendricks, who we call Tommy is my brother! I want to thank you so much for your contribution to this site - it means so much to me and I forwarded it to my sister who was only 3 years old when he passed away in 1968. This is such a wonderful tribute to our men and women who served this country. Take care and God bless!

Thank you for the information on Clifton Aldrich. I have updated Clifton Aldrich and added his mother's maiden name. I am slowly working on improving my entries in Hillside Cemetery and appreciate any help.
