Bio and Links
Please take note that any pictures taken as a request by myself will be used for my ancestry.com familytree. I started to really get into genealogy in about 2010. I utilize this as well as other websites. If I take a photo for you, you may do as you like with it.

I enjoy helping others with their genealogy and I have a lot of info especially for the Westchester, NY area.

I will be happy to transfer anyone to you that is not near and dear to my heart. Please tell me your relationship and if you are closer to the person that I am, I will transfer them to you. I have recently added veterans from Westchester, NY that are buried in Yonkers. Most of them are not related to me. In addition. most of the people that I have added photos and other info for in North Carolina, are also not related to me and I would be glad to transfer them.

Also, if you do not hear from me please right away, please resend your message in a few weeks. Like anyone else, I go through busy periods.

I have just found out that I need a person's contributer ID in order to transfer a person to them. Please include it with any messages for transfer that you send me.

Another issue that I have dealt with recently pertains to the issue of edits. Most edits will go directly to the required block, for instance name, birth date, death date etc. however, information that goes in the "bio" section gets e-mailed to the original person that set-up the memorial and they need to copy and past it into the "bio" box (for instance an obituary or info from the familysearch.com website).

"THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust."

US Social Security Death Index
FYI: The US SSDI reports the last residence of the person that they have recorded for that person and their death date. It does NOT report the place of death.

suggestion - for faster edits - Cronins in Winthrop
You can submit changes to birth, death, relationsips fields via their specific edit tabs. It would make updating the records faster. Thanks, Zoe

RE: Catherine Reilly Tobin
Hi Marilyn:
Don't know if I answered this question to you, not too familiar with Find a Grave. Just getting my feet wet.
Anyhoo, I don't really know much about the Tobin family but Lilian Grace is not a name I'm familiar with, however, as new information gets released, we might be able to connect the dots.
I'll try to remember this request from you and if I find something I will let you know.

RE: Elizabeth Elmore
I wish you could have included some background to reference the location as I never saw this stone where the cemetery said she was buried... You don't recall it do you?
