RE: Yu Pin - Pin Yu
His father's name was 于水源, and his Chinese Wikipedia article refers to his family as the 于 family:

RE: Paul Yü Pin 37288935
I have "Yu" in the surname field, as per the rules of the Chinese language. His given name in Chinese is "Pin". It shows up as "Pin Yu" because Findagrave's naming system puts given names first and surnames last. Paul is his English name, not his Chinese birth name.

Nice job on the biographies, I enjoyed reading them.

If you'd prefer a May/June just let me know when the time comes. This wasn't a great time to take these.

Welcome to Findagrave!
These folks on this site are some of the kindest people I've ever worked with, you will quickly feel at home here.
I have transferred John To you, I will always transfer to someone related, whether 4 gen or not.

I'd like you to meet a very special person here on Findagrave, Gerald "Jerry" Hobson (#46794864), he helped me out with my Goff line and has extensive experience with genealogy, and is an all-around great human being! He is also a relative in the Goff/Goffe family tree. Please give him a holler.

Drop me a line if you need any help here, I always have time for genealogy and Find a grave issues.
Cheers and good hunting,
Marcia Wright/Kreutzmann

McGowan memorials.
I it so weird, I can't get your E-mail address to connect. I wanted to make sure I was transferring to the right person. Most of my ancestors are from New Jersey and New York and it is one of hardest to get information from. I most probably obtained her obit from a paid site. Usually I would pay for 100 obits and I would focus my remainder of the Obits from New Jersey and set up memorials to help others out. If you find another relative during your search and I posted something, I have no problem transferring to you. Best of Luck.

Hello, I posted the pictures you requested for Magdalen & Peter Connolly in St. Charles Cemetery. Note that Magdalen's name has not been added to the stone. Also the Range is "S" not "5".

Good Morning. I was more than happy to transfer your Aunt to you. And yes, your memorials look wonderful. Please don't hesitate to leave me a message if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way.

Take care,
