Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in my family ancestry in the late 1990s. Left it alone for awhile then got interested again when I retired in 2006. I really enjoy researching, and get quite excited when I finally find a relative after looking for a long time. I currently have two of my own Ancestry sites and am an editor/contributor on some others. The names I am researching are: Houghtaling, Graner, McGrane, Packard, Kilpatrick, Stanton, Janowsky, Dudley, Wilcox,and Bennett. Almost all of my ancestors lived in the Tri-State area of NY/PA (Chemung, Bradford, and Tioga Counties) and are buried there.

I maintain only my own ancestors on Find a Grave. I research them pretty carefully before entering them into my Ancestry tree and/or on Find a Grave. Occasionally I will send out edits for those memorial sites on Find a Grave that are not maintained by me.

Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate " Susan Houghtaling on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends' and families' headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated. Some of my photos are cherished ones handed down by my family for several generations. Thanks.

I have only a few memorials on Find a Grave at this time, but about 18,000 people in my several Ancestry trees, so if I can assist anyone with anything, please send me an email or leave a public message.

Sounds great!
Sometimes those death certificates are not correct I have found. So I do understand what you are saying.

Even my very own uncle misstated his mother's death certificate!

Two John Houghtalings
Hello Susan and thanks for alerting me that there is a new memorial (172123746)for a John Houghtaling in a different cemetery but with a date of death within one day of the date of death I have on my memorial (55252970) for a man of the same name. I was able to locate death notice for on for John C. Hotaling (spelling shown) who died 8/24/1914 at his home at 1 Ave. C in Albany at age 78, so this is a different man. I will contact the new memorial owner and ask that this information be added to eliminate any possible confusion in the future. Thanks!

I did look in the Forums again, and it appears that they are still dealing with e-mails from November 6. Mine was sent November 11, so surely within a week they will at least get to the e-mail. Then we will see if they do the right thing.

It seems that all we can do is wait. If nothing happens in a few more days I'll check in the Forums to see if other people are having similar issues with wait times and if anyone has any ideas on how to speed things up.

Well, that little trick didn't work this time--someone just removed the note, but obviously didn't get her transferred to you. So I sent more follow-up info, since they seem to not have understand my request or why I made it. Or maybe they just have a several-weeks backlog of e-mails to deal with. (I asked them abut that, too.)

It's a bit ridiculous that the folks at Edit haven't transferred her to you yet. I'll give it one more day--that'll be a week of waiting--and then use a trick I haven't used in a while. I'll put what I want done (probably in caps) in a note with a flower and then report the flower as being abusive/offensive. That always gets a quick response.

You bet
Also found additional death records for Calvary with death dates you had not quite found. Take a look at the links.

Hugs to you!
