|Greg Volk||RE: Tombstone photos taken for Eda and Andrew Stevens|
Thanks, Betty. FYI, you haven't yet accepted my invites to the DNA results. We could get together over the phone sometime, if you like, and I could show you how it all works.
|Cathy Racicot||RE: Catherine Plonty|
Yes, I will be responsible for this memorial. You may transfer it to me.
|Cathy Racicot||RE: John Murray|
You may transfer it to me.
|Richard Jacobsen||RE: Beauford Oak Hill Cemetery photos|
Hi Betty. Let's go ahead and work on Medo Lutheran and/or the cemetery for Amboy. Pleasant fall!
|Richard Jacobsen||RE: Morrow Cemetery|
Betty, I think that I have taken photos of all the more recent graves. Looking forward to what you have next.
|DE Sundeen||RE: quQuestion about Blue Earth Co cemeteries|
My first reaction is, with a name like Cemetery Walker, are you judging me? Do you have a prejudice against disabled veterans? Is one method better than another? Are you jealous or angry that I "invaded" the Blue Earth cemeteries?
But maybe I'm over-reacting, a little sensitive about my disability. I really can't be sure of your tone from a text message. These days, people rarely say please or thank you or good job or can I help you. And some days I'm just tired and cranky. Maybe you're upset, maybe not? I can't tell.
The brief answer to your question is, I'm working from cemetery records.
A more complete answer is, I was working on military records, making sure our vets get a memorial -- so many died young, without descendants, unremembered and unloved -- and often I follow up, through Ancestry and the Internet, and link them up with their parents. After researching several vets in Blue Earth I noticed that their families were also missing. So, I obtained cemetery records, laboriously checking what's been entered and what hasn't; typing up spreadsheets. Honestly shocked so many had not yet been entered.
I realize every cemetery has a problem with some unmarked graves, some vandalized or weathered tombstones, but I have just been overwhelmed with how many memorials needed to be created.
I have been ecstatically pleased to see the Edits come in so quickly, meaning families are finding their relatives! Pictures of the person have been added, photos of tombstones also. I've transferred over a dozen memorials to family members.
Well, you too must have felt that joy, that satisfaction, from the memorials you've created. It's good to help people.
This project has been very exhausting; from making two or three veteran's memorials per day to making a thousand a week from cemetery records; I will be glad when it's done. And it is almost done. Thankfully.
|Richard Jacobsen||RE: Which cemetery next?|
Hi Betty. I noticed at Beuford #1 there were quite a few "Wades" and other "Ws." Perhaps from here we could go to other cemeteries around Beuford.
Another suggestion would be Medo Lutheran -- I believe we got through all in Medo Central. We did drive by Medo Lutheran and it seems there are quite a few graves without photos.
Hope you had a good summer.
|K. (Salsman) Martin||William Price|
My name is Karen (Salsman) Martin. A William Price was my third great grandfather in MO. He was married twice but one wife is unknown. Do you have any additional information on this William Price? Thank you for your time. I am on Ancestry also.
|Steve Kiner||RE: Medo Central Cemetery|
Your welcome. I don't live near there but visit relatives there of and on and will try and get more photos next time I'm in the area if needed.
I'm going to send you a couple of SAC's regarding a few of the memorials at Medo Central.
I also went to Bunker Hill trying to find your request there with no luck.
|Richard Jacobsen||Johnny Leslie Thul|
Betty, I had a relative contact me by e-mail to give more information on a memorial you created for Johnny Leslie Thul, in the St. Matthews (Vernon Center) Cemetery. The Thul stone that is posted on the site is for Johnny's grandparents. Johnny did not have the last name "Thul." He was Johnny Leslie. Could the name change on the memorial be made?
