I have been searching for my Family for 10 years.My Husband would go along with me to the cemetery. I take a lot of tombstone picture and put them on Find a Grave so that other people can find there family member.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. do not fall into this category. Bulk surname requests should not be made

Thank you very much and more info
Dear Joan,

Thank you very much for your response. I am sure the church has the information. It is possible that they have the info on the children also – especially George (who died on March 4, 1976 – we need his birth date also) and Joseph (could be Francis Joseph also - who died on May 27, 1976 I believe). The info I have on Francis Joseph, Father is birth date January 8, 1920 and death date I have is March 7, 1894 on Family Search – I still have not heard back and have sent him another message.

I am very interested in knowing from them also whether Francis had moved the graves from Pennsylvania to Ohio as George is there and Francis Joseph are there. If so, Mary Teresa Burserey could also be buried there and it’s possible that the grave for Mary Hartenrider is hers (not sure of Mary Hartenrider’s middle name???). It would be very nice if you could clear this family up so the correct information is there for current and future ancestors. Please also check on a Cecelia Liette (died as a child – unknown birth and death dates) as they did have another child born. That will clear up ALL of the children. Photos of ALL of their memorials plus the info from the cemetery would certainly help clear up matters. Would be interested in knowing your results. I will help you edit them in any way I can so they can be absolutely correct for the family members.

Other info: Still waiting for approval of children links to Augusta Justine Lallemond and Louis Marchal from other Findagrave members – hopefully they will be approved soon and that family will be complete.

Have a fabulous weekend and good luck at St. Remy’s with the info needed.

Best Regards Sharon

Thank you and Transfer Back
Dear Joan,

As promised I finished the bio for Adeline and I transferred it back to you. It is very lengthy but I did verify all the children and which mother they belonged to and put it in the memorial so others might not want to change the kids around anymore (less headaches for you)!!! If you want me to revise it for Augusta's and Louis' bio let me know and I will do that for you. Hope you like it. Only thing missing is Elnor's last name (Joseph's other wife). I sent a request for it and will let you know what it is when I get it aND you can pUT it in.

Thank you for all the links, and edits approved for this very large family that has an extremd number of children to be linked and edited - hopefully they wI'll br done soon by others.
Have a fabulous week and holiday.

Best Regards Sharon

Marchal Family edits and links
Dear Joan,

Thank you. I received Adeline's Memorial. I am trying to fix the children - Frank Marchal also belongs to you. I made edits to the dates as per the grave stone and the info that I had for him. Unsure of the actual date in October of 1906 but his child was also born in October of 1906. Changed the mother so I need you to approve the edits before it can be finalized OR If you want to transfer me the memorial for Frank, I will get it back to you when the edits are complete. His # is 80701352 I will also fix Adeline's with her children and parents if different after I find out who all of them are. I will also be linking Augusta to her parents and I believe you have Augusta's memorial also, so I will submit the edits OR you can transfer them to me - I will do the edits and transfer back to you when completed.

I did request edits for mother changes on Joseph and George today - other people's memorials. Have a wonderful day.

Best Regards,

Sharon Klima
