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 emigrated 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 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.

That wrong spousal link was done from the other end on Mary Colton Smith's memorial. I went to put in an edit and see that you have already done so. thanks for the heads up. Hopefully that will get fixed as it looks pretty foolish. LOL

RE: Helen Hannah Bouressa
Hi LeRoy,
I asked my mom, Helen Hannah Bouressa's Birth date was March 10, NOT Nov 10. I'll update on my end where appropriate.

Thanks for noticing!

RE: Edith Osborne Memorial
Thank you, LeRoy. I realized that the last time I visited the cemetery office, I (wisely!) recorded the location information. Just in case you would like to add that, Franklyn & Edith are located in Div: Lawndale, Lot: 081.
I spent yesterday working on the memorials you transferred and adding more family.
Thanks! Marsha
