Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Joanna Gentry. December 29, 2014, I retired from local government after 28 years. I worked in data entry, construction survey, and GIS. My married name was McIntyre. I was born in Visalia, CA, and I am a first generation Californian. Both my parents were born in Oklahoma and I have many ties to that state. I've been working on my family tree in a serious way for a couple of years. Just recently I found several generations of my family buried in Paradise Cemetery, Paradise, MO. My mythical Irish ancestor became my very real Irish 3rd greatgrandfather! Through DNA I've proven that I am 1/3 Irish. I'm working on finding my greatgrandmother Alfar Breashears Whitley who died in 1913 after giving birth to her 5th child. I know absolutely nothing about her parents. I've added a few memorials, and I'm just learning what a great tool FAG can be. And, I'm "meeting" some really wonderful caring people who are FAG volunteers. At the request of a Gentry relative who I'd never met before and is a very very distant relative, I visited my Santa Paula cemetery and got information about her great uncle. Because of that work, I've recently "met" this man's granddaughter. It's a small world, isn't it?

RE: Austin and Telia Whitley
Your welcome. I usually post the spouse picture when filling photos requests for the other and add the spouse if necessary. Thanks for the compliment.

Looks like the edits took even though I accepted them after I made the transfers.

Transfers completed. Sorry but I didn't see the edits you sent until after I made the transfers.

RE: Bert Moen
Thanks Jo. I added this after finding my parents in July 2014. I was looking for Bert Alvin and didn't look under Bert A. Have deleted it and added Bert's photo to the Bert A. memorial along with the middle name (waiting on review).
I see that several of his siblings are missing from the listing. I will have to add them later.

RE: Resurrection: ERVIN
It's a wonderful tool alright. But just like anything else with unlimited potential, a few bad apples can limit, to severely damage, its effectiviness, let alone, its image. I only hope the majority of good contibutors will override the few bad ones. Happy trails, and good graving. Mike. PS Oh, your last message had issues and never arrived intact.

Im so sorry that it took me 4 years to get your message!! I just found your email today!!! I had a file that was/is Findagrave Not Done, as I was sick during 2011-12. Anything I couldn't get to, I put in there. It seems I missed a few!
