|Bio and Links|
|I am a military veteran of the United States Navy (MCPO, E-9) with 25 years active service (off the farm at 18), then closing out with five additional years in the Fleet Reserve. The remainder of my career was in civil service.|
Became interested in family genealogy upon discovering that my great-grandfather had immigrated to this county from Germany in 1856. He fought in the Civil War (Union) as a substitute for two enlistments for two different individuals.
I have two family trees to maintain. My personal tree (Zimmerman/Smith Family Connections) contains about 1000 individuals. My second tree is for my daughter-in-law's family and my grandchildren (Ouimette/Cramer Family Connections) and contains nearly 800 individuals. I am a member of Find-A-Grave and Ancestry.com. Have not visited grave sites (as of this point in time), except where my immediate relatives are buried. However, with over 1800 individuals in my family trees, I am concerned with the lack of linkage and proper editing of those people in the trees.
My goal is to attempt to link my relatives listed on Find-A-Grave to their respective families with proper editing. To this end I am forwarding verified editing information to those contributors who have submitted memorials for deceased members of my family tree, or in some cases, I have requested maintenance responsibility and now have a growing list of memorials that I am responsible for.
Transfers of memorials are no problem as long as they are within the guidelines set forth by Find-A-Grave. In special cases a transfer can be given with a proper request and explanation. Editing and Linking will be done as long as the information is verifiable. Please use the EDIT function with your FAG#. Thank You.
NOTE: In the event of my death or my becoming inactive, I would like my memorials passed to T. BURT, #47009168. This information has been provided to Find-A-Grave and has T. BURT's generous acceptance.

So sorry for the loss of your friends, LeRoy.

Wow - what a story for your great grandfather. I knew I had more information in my genealogy file for my GGF, so went and put more on his memoral.
Have a great day!

Hi and thanks for the dupe heads up. It has been taken care of. We have history in common. My great grandfather also fought for the Union. He is #2597098. Also, I thank you for your service.

Always glad to have someone with some sort of connection manage the memorials.
I'm working my way through the Dawn Valley cemetery photographing and entering. On the pictures I took today, yet to be entered, I have a Gary F. Smith 1937-1990, right next to Robert L. R. 1909-1993 and wife Mary Ann 1910-1983. Are any of these part of your line?

I applied the edits for Merle. Would you be interested in a transfer of his memorial (and that of his wife)?
Laurie (a.k.a. Cashline)

|Dennis Reyerson||RE: Burial Place?|
You're right. I've always called it the Chokio Cemetery.
|P. Perry||Sister Placid Wmmer|
Thanks for the addtl info on Sister Placid. I processed the edit for her additional info but not on the name change. Instead, I edited to include her first name but not the nickname of Sr. Placid since Sr is already her prefix.
