Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogists endeavour to help others by contributing to this site, while others seem bent on harassing and undermining those efforts by nitpicking non-important items. For genealogists I believe they value substance over form and while there is a keen balance one must not let form misconstrue the substance.

One does not suffer fools very well, so if you wish to recommend an edit to me, please make it meaningful from a genealogical perspective.

I have a lot of photos and details on graves which I have loaded to this site. That is all I am doing. The photos are there so researchers can find them and use the details.WYSIWYG. I am in Australia so as far as the Brazilian cemetery is concerned I can no longer just pop around and rephotograph any graves. Most photos can be zoomed up for reading.

I have yet to load a few thousand photos onto this site and when I get to them that's when I check the headstone against the available data I had loaded via Excel template.

In regard to the Gamboa cemetery I have loaded the registered burial date and then correct it, where necessary, once the photo is loaded. In most cases in Brazil they try to bury people either same or next day so it is possible the burial date to be also the death date! For those who believe everything should be anglicised then think again, as in Brazil many names/memorial comments can be in Portuguese. If the memorial has Portuguese words then that is what goes in the submission.

For the Melbourne Cemetery (Parkville) the grounds are compartments follow the order Religion / Compartment(Alpha)/ Grave Number, e.g RC-Comp F-123.

After 42 years of doing genealogy I can still be amazed what is out there in every corner of the world and also bemused as to how closed-minded some people are in terms of understanding that their ancestors may have been in many parts of the world, not just one!

Photo of Hinde Grave
Tony,

Many thanks for taking the photo of Maurice Eaton Hinde's grave. Very kind of you and a great help in sorting out the family tree as it was not known he married and had a daughter. Also thanks for letting me know the second grave for Richard Hinde was unmarked. Great to have the photos and to get one step further in completing the family tree.

Regards,

Nick Hinde (Peter H)

Hi Tony!

I agree with you, "THEY" have added from books and lists, by spreadsheets!

"THEY" DO NOT HAVE even 1 PER CENT of their own memorials photographed, or info added to:

"THEY" have NOT added even flowers to their "or to other's memorials" out of respect.

"THEY" have HAVE NOT TAKEN-volunteer photo requests, and if they have its only a few.

AND THEY DON'T SPONSOR MEMORIALS~so THAT ALONE is NOT SUPPORTING FINDAGRAVE!

WE THAT TAKE THE TIME TO WALK CEMETERIES AND PHOTO GRAVES, AND RESEARCH NAMES, ADD FLOWERS AND SPONSOR MEMORIALS (WHICH PAYS FINDAGRAVE) ARE THE TRUE ONES WHO MAKE THIS SITE AND ALSO ANCESTRY.COM LOOK GOOD. WE ARE THE ONES WHO DO THIS OUT OF OUR TIME AND OUR MONEY (GAS-SPONSORSHIPS-ETC) AND ASK NOTHING FROM FINDAGRAVE OR ANCESTRY--BUT ITS TIME FOR FINDAGRAVE'S ADMINISTRATORS TO GET THESE LEACHES OFF OUR BACKS BEFORE WE ALL TAKE OUR TIME ELSEWHERE.

Kudos to you for your post on GerbLady's page! Nicely put.
The woman is relentless! :(
I have looked at her listings and she could spend time on her own just putting periods after initials since she is so picky about "rules."
To me she needs to clean up her own back yard before hammering the rest of the contributors. Several of us here in the Midwest certainly tired of finding edits for Mr and Mrs in our edits every time we open our profile pages.

Thank you for your help.
Joseph Addyman was born in Leeds, England and had two sons by his first wife Rachel Stapleton before travelling to Uruguay in 1827.
Little is known of him until his daughter Ann
was born in Port Louis, Falkland Islands in 1840.
The story is much improved by you finding some of their resting places.

Best Wishes,
Christine

RE: Arcady 'George' Pisarevsky
Dear Tony,

Thank you so very much. This is the start to something I have been searching for the last 20 years with no lead and this is the first. Where might my first point if contact be regarding the civil death records?

Thank you in advance,
Natalie

Arcady 'George' Pisarevsky
Dear Tony,

I am searching for my grandfather Dr George Pisarevsky who resided in Rio de Janeiro before he died there I believe.

I would be grateful for anymore information you may have or that I can provide.

Yours sincerely,
Natalie
