|Bio and Links|
After an extremely busy summer where I fell behind, I am back and digging through a very large pile of messages and corrections, starting with the oldest first. So, I'll get to them all, but it will be a bit!
I've been an avid genealogist for years, researching my own family and helping others research theirs.
I now have about 2,000 memorials on FindAGrave and a related tree on Ancestry.com with 25,000 people. So, I'm getting a lot of contacts asking for more information, sometimes several in a day, then none for a week or so. I always respond to everyone (unless they're particularly cranky), usually with much help and many answers. But, especially as it's now summer, my response time is not generally measured in hours, but days or weeks! So, please be patient. I'll get to you. If a month passes, I may have missed your query. Feel free to poke me again!
Right now, I'm working Pioneer Cemetery (aka Masonic or Odd Fellows) in Boise on-line. The cemetery is now 100% on-line with about 80% of the memorials managed by me. I am now researching all of my managed memorials adding biographical information and familial links where I can. That also means that I'm researching most of the rest of the cemetery, too, because there are many connections amongst the families! (My gracious fellow contributors - especially David M. Habben - have been making lots of updates at my request!)
* Jan 2010 - Section 1 (Masonic) completed and 2,300 entries in related family tree.
* Mar 2010 - Section 2 (Odd Fellows) completed and 4,712 entries in the tree.
* Apr 2010 - Started Section 3 (Knights of Pythias?)
* Jun 2010 - Taking a break (mostly) for the summer. About 25% through Section 3.
* Nov 2010 - Finished Section 3!!! There are now 15,096 folks in my related tree! It was slow going since many of the burials are unrelated. That means no "freebies" when researching one burial and each burial is harder because there are no clues to be found in nearby burials.
* Apr 2011 - Still on Section 4. It's proving slow going. I keep getting sidetracked down interesting trails or being pulled back to folks I've already researched by inquiring relatives (which is grand!). Only have finished 18 of 69 plots (though some may have been finished incidentally with earlier research). Tree is up to 22,081 people.
* Sep 2011 - Yup, still on Section 4! I'm still spending much of my time on side trails initiated by folks contacting me about their relatives and having trouble making progress on Section 4. I've also been especially busy personally. Tree is up to 28,419 people.
I have created many memorials in other cemeteries in order to connect those interred at Pioneer, especially children. I'm also making many requests to other contributors to add the information I happen to find on their contributions and appreciate all of their assistance.
I want my memorials to be as accurate as possible. If you have information to provide, please use the "Edit" tab, then "Sugggest A Correction" link to do so! I'm tickled to be able to add more information and link them to other family members. If you know of the burial of a sibling, but the parents locations are unknown, I'll even happily add a hot link in the memorial to the sibling.

Find A Grave Memorial# 69736968
I have made the updates to the dates as you have suggested for the 3 Emerson's that are buried at Saint Patricks Cemetery here in Kent, Washington. I also noticed that you added/created their parents to the cemetery and have asked me to link the children to them.
My question is, Do you have info indicating that their parents are in fact buried in this cemetery? I am asking because I have documented this cemetery by photographing EVERY marker or headstone and the parents were not buried there. (Unless there is no marker) Can you please contact me via my email or findagrave profile. Thank you and thank you for all you do for findagrave.

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I made the changes you requested. Thanks so very much and if you would like to have this memorial, just click on the suggestion/correction tab and request the transfer. This person is not one of my family members and I like to see them with family when possible. Have a wonderful day and thank you for contacting me.
|Rebecca Drumm||Deette Breese Prutzman|
I connected Deette's parents and first husband to her memorial. Thanks for the info.

I have a question regarding a picture of my great grandfather William A DeMond that you created. In the posting you have notes referencing family members. Can you let me know where this information came from?
|skanne||D. Grace George|
Her parents have been linked to her memorial. Have a great weekend!

I took a look at Hettie Mason Wroth to add Thomas Wroth as her husband and he was already there. Anything else I can do, just let me know.

No problem.... added his actual birth day as well. Enjoy your research.
|Dennis Bell||Ludolf Haarmann|
Kathleen, I made all but one of your requested changes. His tombstone and the obituary both place his birth year as 1864, You asked me to change it to 1866. If you want me to change the date please let me know your source so it can be tracked for genealogical purposes. Also, if this is your family member and would like the record transferred to you just send me a request.
