Bio and Links
My purpose on this site is to help people. Having said that, I also have put in a lot of work so I would request your consideration about a few things.

1) PHOTOS - Any photos posted by me on this website may be used for your personal, non-commercial use without contacting me as long as I am given credit in the form of "Photo taken by Christopher Baker" in your re-posting or use in your family tree. Bulk copying my photos for use on another site is not allowed and violates my copyright. Also, dropping a "thank you message" on my public wall here is always appreciated. :-)

2) TRANSFERS - Every edit you want to make can be made using the "Edit" menu on the memorial. There is no advantage to "managing" a memorial.

This site is not about collecting memorials that you manage but about providing information to those seeking it.

Some people are on this site just to add their relatives. This is great. But some of us are here to add entire cemeteries so people can find their relatives. It is a lot of work to go thru an entire cemetery and add this data and/or take the photos for 1,000's of markers!

My time is limited and taking time to transfer memorials so someone can have all their distant relatives under their "managed memorials" count is not what this site is about. You can make all the same edits if you "manage" the memorial or not using the "Edit" menu!

Additionally, I can't tell you how many people request the same memorial to be transferred. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PERSON RELATED TO A MEMORIAL ON THIS SITE. So now what happens when someone requests the transfer from you?

Or maybe you will refuse to add the information you have if you can't manage it ... I have heard that one too believe it or not. Think about that a while! You are missing the entire point of this site.

Having said this, I also believe in the site's policy of "Family First." I strongly believe that a direct family member (sibling, parent, grand parent), of any generation, deserve to maintain the memorial. Therefore, if you are a DIRECT relative (sibling, parent, grand parent, great-grandparent, etc.) OF ANY GENERATION then I will be happy to transfer management to you. NOTE: Unlike the site policy / FAQ that places other limits like only 4 generations, I don't limit the generations.

Additionally, if you are a large contributor on this site or you upload photos for the memorial including grave marker and you sponsor the memorial, I do take that into consideration.

If it is a cousin, an aunt, an uncle, etc. then please just send a correction and don't ask for a transfer.

I think most people on this site follow a similar policy. I hope you can understand this balance.


3) ALL EDIT/ADDITION REQUESTS - Find the person's memorial you want to suggest a change for and choose the "Edit" in the top right, then choose the item you want to edit under "Suggest a Correction" (birth/death date/location, bio, relatives, etc.) PLEASE DON'T SEND EDIT REQUESTS TO ME HERE!!!!

Emilie Buchholz
I think you should switch all the information on Emilie Buchholz (#106149070) to the Emilie Wordelman Buchholz (106149103) since they are the same person, including the picture of the headstone, and then delete the first one. That way, there's less confusion.

Half-Siblings Emma Lenz
Iím a direct decedent of Emma (Kusel) Lenz. Also, Iím just looking for information concerning Ferbernrd and Johanna Kuselís family tree. On the web site, there are two half siblings listed Ernest B. and Otto Kusel. That indicates there were different spouses for parents for these two individuals. I would appreciate any information you could furnish concerning the different names of the parents.
Thank You

Eva Schroeder Bethania Cemetery
Hi Christopher. Thanks so much for your good work. I have been trying to find a grave for Eva (My 2nd great grandmother) for some time. I assume since there is no photo of a stone it does not exist, but it is nice to know where she is buried. I don't know if you want to add information or connect her with family on findagrave, but thought I'd give you the information if you do.

She was born 11 Sep 1820 in Prussia, Germany
She was married to Johann Schroeder in Prussia. He died there before she came to the USA with her daughter, Marie Seliger and family. Marie is buried in Hammond, Lake, Indiana if you would like to link her. Here is her information
Find A Grave Memorial# 106149297 Marie Seliger, daughter of Eva Schroeder

Again, we appreciate your work in helping others.

Christopher, thank you for all the wonderful photographs you've obtained the last few years at Orland Memorial Park Cemetery.

Frank Hein
I've noticed you manage 2 Frank Hein memorials. I am searching for Frank O Hein, born about 1874 (possibly from Saxony, Germany). He married my great-great Aunt Alice Copithorn at Chicago on 25 July 1905. Alice died in 1953, and is buried in St Paul Episcopal Cemetery near other Copithorns in Ashippun, Wisconsin.
The 2 memorial#s: 106152164 & 106159879.

If either of the Frank's are mine I will link him to his wife and son.

Thanks for any info.
All the best-

I did several edits on the above families. I changed a few death dates. Dates listed were burial dates. I have finished all the family links, I believe. Let me know if anything seem incorrect.

Thank you so much for all you do here!
