Bio and Links
Bio Photo What a great site to keep the memories of our beloved family members and ancestors alive! A great research tool and connections to others who just may be related to you.

I am researching on my husbands side: Neal, Neel, Morgan, Roland/Rowland, Rose, and Sias.

I am researching on my side: Werner, Veselovsky, Craig, Feeley, Carlucci, Poveromo, Paccione, Stragapede, Villari, and Hodack.

What saddens me is the amount of "hoarding" of memorials I continue to run across on FAG! I understand there are "guidelines" which have been set. However, a person should not be made to feel like they are getting teeth pulled to have a memorial transferred to them! Members know darn well, if a person they entered is related to them or not. Holding on to a memorial and hiding behind the guidelines to do so is outrageous.
The hard and tedious work put in to enter those memorials are greatly appreciated, but this site is to remember and honor those who have passed, not to have a tug of war and give astronomical amounts a proof on where the person falls on your tree.

Any photos I have posted may be used on other websites. Any memorial I have entered, which my husband or I are not related, I will be more than happy to transfer.

RE: Janos Farkas
I think I mentioned last summer that the stone is virtually under a very large bush, and at least when I go, the glare is awful. Also the stone is shiny and the letters are not engraved very deeply as I recall. I'll be in that cemetery within the next couple of weeks and I'll try again. I can also try to transcribe it myself.

RE: Message
Thank you for checking after me; as the saying goes "two heads are better than one".

Are you interested in the Mann history?

I appreciate you continuing to update Belle's memorial for me. Hopefully, some day I will find where her parents were buried and also more siblings.

Valerie, You surly mean what you say about memorial transfers, I did not ask for the memorial transfer of Arlene T Perry Stoddard but you transferred it anyway. Thanks, she is a part of our family by marriage and I couldn't agree more on what you said abut this topic.
Thanks so much for all your had work on find a grave, I which there were more Find A Grave members like you. Also tanks for giving your permission about using your photo's up front.
Best Regards,

RE: James Silver
I suspect they were very poor. Perhaps they never had headstones. In my own research I am certain I found where people were buried where there was no cemetery record. This is in cases where I was dealing with a single family.

RE: James Silver
The information came to me from Pearlene Silver, daughter of John S. Silver. She is still living but my e mail carrier dumped my address book last winter and I no longer have her e mail.

Sources were either the death certificate of from a family relative still living.
