re: Mildred C. Lingenfelter Housel
I think that it is nearly impossible for findagrave to discriminate what is a duplicate memorial, and what is not unless they are located at the same cemetery. In any case, it happens all the time even with people who are diligent about checking. I think the majority of findagravers want info to be as accurate as possible, so most of us are very good at cleaning up small problems when we find them.

If I remember the creation of Wilbur Uriah HOUSEL's memorial correctly, there was a certain amount of 'best guess' involved in locating exactly which "Resthaven Park Cemetery" is his final resting place as it was stated in his obituary. It seems there is a "Resthaven Park" a "West Resthaven Park" and a "Glendale Memorial" all tied together. So without having actually located the grave, there may be some modification needed on his findagrave memorial. The placement of Mildred at Resthaven is an assumption based on the idea that she would be buried next to her husband. Perhaps that assumption is incorrect. I was unable to discover an online listing for burials at Resthaven, and did not call them.

In any case, I will be passing the memorial for Mildred to your capable hands. She is not closely linked to my family. My interest is in tracking the families descended from Caspar Hauschildt (aka Casper Housel), in an attempt to straighten out and clarify the ancestral lines. Stumbling upon Wilbur's obit was simply a happy google coincidence.

RE: "Grandma" Marian Craiger
You are so very welcome! It makes my heart happy you could adopt her and like what I created. Now, don't forget to add some stories of your own to her memorial to "own" it AND link her sons to her (if you haven't already)! TTFN! ;D

RE: Marian Craiger
Hi. We called her "Grandma Craiger" and we knew her from church. My youngest loved her so much. Your Aunt is all transferred. I'm honored to pass her on and that you like the memorial I created to honor her life. I know you will take good care of her. I try to make memorials VERY special and not just dates and cold headstones. These people were REAL and I think minimalist memorials is disrespectful no matter what the motto of F.A.G. is---"registering graves" or whatever because too many members on here take it too far and hoard. What would they do if someone grabbed their obit and listed it and wouldn't transfer it to family and it was just minimalist on here like they meant nothing for REAL.

Unfortunately, I've had problems on here too. I'm still new. I ignore the mean ones. I keep a lot of mine in my virtual cemeteries which I actually have over 20 but most are hidden. One has 800 people in it. I can't get transfers to "liven up" bios or give date specifics or link them to family. Whatever. I wish there was a site for genealogists like me where people can add to memorials like on Wikipedia allows for information. It would be a lot more user friendly and yes, some would abuse it too, but the memorials would be about honoring lives instead of registering graves. That's just me though I fear.

I wasn't surprised to hear from you after I'd seen your bio or gathering Craiger's etc. I did get your message and emailed you back but then thought, you are closer to her than me anyway and I just put her up as someone to honor from my past, so I'll offer to transfer her. I'm nice, no matter what some say. ;D

Too bad you had problems with the other member that originally created her and glad they ended up leaving and deleting it since it made you uncomfortable. That member can play their "games" elsewhere.

Just so you know, my son, hubby, and youngest daughter, went to the D.R. and stayed with Tim and Ginny. My older daughter went to Costa Rica and saw them. Hubby went twice. He installed a system in their hotel in the D.R.. He is great friends with Tim and Tim is one of his favorite past bosses. I used to sing with Ginny in church ensembles...wonderful, happy person! Grandma Craiger sat near us in church plus I used to come in and clean the school lunch room after the kids went to class and talked to Ginny and Grandma Craiger in the kitchen as they cleaned up. My daughter was only 4 years old then and Grandma Craiger took a such shine to her and visa versa...and it stayed that way through the years. Hubby and she went to Grandma Craiger's funeral. Well, I hear Tim and Ginny are now stationed in Florida when stateside and not in Indiana. Luckies---no more snow!

Good luck with finding more family---or creating honoring memorials for them! If you don't do it, who will?? God bless and have a happy Easter! TTFN! ;D

RE: Marian Craiger
Would you like me to transfer her to you? I'd be honored. She was a special lady and you'd take good care of her. I can see you are related to the family by your nice memorials. Let me know...
