Bio and Links
Bio Photo Reseaching the Franks/Frank/Franklin family that emigrated to NYC in the 1860s

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my Find A Grave family trees, with suggestions, adding links from their own Memorials, Memorial transfers, accepting my photo requests and even surprise unsolicited photo contributions. I appreciate your kindness.

None of the Memorials that I manage 'belong' to me, I am merely the Custodian and I will gladly transfer Memorials to anyone who is more closely related than me.

I do not strictly enforce the Find A Grave 'family first' rule either, nor do I bark out orders, I think there are already enough Policemen and Judges in the World. I'm not criticising the policy, just going on the record as someone who chooses to take a more flexible and compassionate approach.

Research aids;

If you are researching Jewish ancestors who lived in NYC, the following websites are a good source of information.

Good luck!

Betty & Dan
Minnie Pearson Photo Request @ Royal Oak Burial Park
Please email the cemetery office to obtain the coordinates of her burial (and her husband Edwin's), and then add these coordinates to your memorial pages - that way, one of the photo volunteers can readily get the photo(s). Email and explain that you are a family member wanting to locate the burial locations. We note on Minnie's death registration that she was cremated at Royal Oak (and her husband was cremated at Cedar Cemetery near Nanaimo) so they may not have graves at Royal Oak.

Bernocco family
This is a triple tombstone with Mildred and Evelyn Louise on one side (the middle is blank) and Thomas and Ida Louise Bernocco and Laura Leah Scafani (sister) on the other side. I need to go at a different time of day in order to get a good shot of the entire tombstone on this side.

Edit Requests
Thank you for the edit requests. They will be processed. Just a reminder, or in case you don't know, I thought you might like to know that I transfer out of guidelines. If you would like custody of any memorials I manage please submit an Edit request using the "Suggest any other correction or addition" option. If I am not related I will transfer. Thank you!

I note that you have a memorial for Beevor-Potts in the Nanaimo Cemetery. I think you will be interested in looking at Potts documented in the same cemetery. If you with any of them that I have posted there, just ask and go through the edit system.

I don't know if you need this information, but Lionel Beever-Potts (I think the Judge) he died in Vancouver, don't know where he is buried.
