Done! Thanks.
Sometimes the pointer "sticks" on the pull-down menu, and the next adjacent factoid gets entered instead.

RE: Paul Yahner
He belongs in St. Benedict's Cemetery. I've deleted my memorial at St. Mary's.

You asked why the birth dates from his headstone (1871) and death certificate (1862) donít match.
The short answer is I donít know, unfortunately the long answer is the same. The month and day that I have, Dec. 27th match at least.
Itís not that uncommon to find the years are not a match. You ask 4 people the same question and youíll get 5 different answers. The phase ďcarved in stoneĒ doesnít work on headstones. Iíve seen all kinds of mixed up dates and for some reason theyíre not corrected.
Perhaps one person gave the information to the funeral director and when they got around to putting in a stone, they asked some else the dates.
Sorry, I canít give you a better explanation.

I have gotten a few inquiries from some of the Pfeaster side of the family tree and thought I would ask if I could get the password for the Pfister website you had mentioned.
I looked up on Google Earth to find Bittelbronn and discovered that I was fairly close to there when I was in Cernay, France a few years ago. Hopefully I can visit there some day.
Best Wishes,

Sorry about that. His birthday should be August.
Sometimes you just get caught by that little drop- down box. I failed to check that it was right.

Thank you for catching it.

I have made the additions to Grace's memorial which you requested. I would be happy to transfer her memorial to you for management if you wish. Just let me know. All the best to you.

Mary A (Seiler) Anna
Hello John, thank you for the additional information on Mrs. Anna. I have updated her bio to reflect the details you provided.

You mention your relation to her. I am not related, just someone with relatives in that same cemetery that decided to start snapping photos and adding entries where they did not exist.

Would you like me to transfer Mary and those associated with her that I created to your care? I would gladly execute a transfer.

And added Lawrence and Eleanor's Wedding date.

Thank you for your help.
