|Bio and Links|
A native Angeleno and now retired, I am now spending time regularly on genealogy pursuits, instead of only during holidays and vacations! Find-A-Grave is such a wonderful resource. |
I am so impressed when I see how much others have done, so I intend to make a contribution, rather than just use the site.
My F-G goals which include making sure my family is represented:
1. Help link people into their family groups.
2. Add photos and interesting, useful content in the memorials for which I have the information.
3. Add memorial photos from cemeteries I have visited.
4. The babies...find their parents and link them.
5. Spread the F-G "news" and recruit new members.
On my mother's side: McGarvey, Donaldson, McDole, Dye, Davis, primarily PA, Ohio and NY.
On my father's side, Eyster, Stallman, Ehrhart, Lentz, Miller, Strausbaugh & Brown...a very York, PA family. Both sides ended up to one degree or another in California.
My husband's family is the elusive JAMES M. PARKS family along with Robbins, Leigh, Meeker, Perry, Daniels, Ackerman and Campbell (first of Vermont).

|CarrieT||RE: Mechling Book|
Susie, as fate would have it, I ended up in Pittsburgh this week for a funeral and I had time to visit the Carnegie library. I noticed the kittaning Cemetery book there and checked on Gladys Fulton. She is indeed my Kennedy aunt! I hope I haven't caused you any inconvenience, but I no longer need the book checked. I really appreciate your checking for me.

Thanks Susie. I appreciate you taking the time to check for me.

|CarrieT||"Burials in the Kittanning Cemetery" book|
Susie, I saw a reference to the book "Burials in the Kittanning Cemetery, Kittanning, Pennsylvania, 1811-1995", by AR & MK Mechling in your memorial for Infant Donaldson (d. 1931). If you happen to have the book, could you possibly look someone up for me? I'm very far from SW PA and would like to know what it says for Gladys L. Fulton (1903-1953). I'm wondering if she may be my great aunt, maiden name Kennedy. My next step was going to be calling libraries that have the book, but then I saw your comment in the baby's memorial. Thanks for reading and have a good weekend!

Whew! I think I got them ALL! :) And as always, just let me know if you'd like any loved ones transferred over to your care! Cor.
I did get multiple SACs from someone today--maybe it was you. Whenever it happens, I figure there was just a little glitch. But I have seen it mentioned in the Forums as happening more often than usual in recent days. If it persists, I suggest you go to the "Help With Find A Grave" Discussion Forum and ask for their input. Someone rattled off a fix that worked, but I didn't follow any of it...

Find A Grave contacted several hundred contributors, as I understand it, who could then choose to be part of the testing of the new system. I asked to have it turned on ASAP, and the timing couldn't have been better. With summer coming, it will be good to save some time from taking care of SACs to spend doing fun, summer things.
All the info for one person can be put in one SAC (Suggest a Correction)--and you will see now that much of the info can be entered directly with the new editing system. It then comes to me and all I have to do is click on "Accept"--the drop-down menus should save you some time entering dates and places.
I am so glad to have had the writings of my great-grandfather's cousin, Frank Dumm, so that I knew about many of the people who are buried in the Buffalo U P Cemetery, but whose graves are no longer marked--if they ever were.

I just uploaded the stone for little Catherine if you wanted to see it. Kind regards.

How nice of you to sponsor Fannie's memorial - and what a nice flower you've left. I've gladly transferred her over to your loving care and please let me know if I can help in finding the rest of her family. (and if you would like any other loved ones' transferred). My best as always, Cor.
