Bio and Links
Bio Photo Member for about 8 years; five years using my current member name.

Father's Family - The Ohio Schmidt's, Hart's, Schulz, Schultz, Schule, Wilde, Kronberger, Gabel, Stadler, Kuchenbacker, Osterhouse, Bosch, Downing, Kenyon, Massie, Myers, Priebe, Wills, and Woods.....and the Texas Schmidt's and Schultz's.

Concerning the 18,500 grave memorials that I previously managed under two different user names, see the most recent transfers below.

I transferred all of the memorials that I managed at Mountain View Cemetery, Pueblo, Pueblo County Colorado to Ron West User ID 47389384

I transferred all of the memorials that I managed at Roanoke Island Memorial Gardens, in Manteo, NC to user Name Anonymous (#46862836)

I transferred most of the memorials that I managed at Ramah Cemetery, El Paso County, Colorado (except for direct family memorials) to Ron West User ID 47389384

I transferred all of the memorials that I managed at Memorial Gardens in Colorado Springs to Ron West User ID 47389384

I transferred all of the memorials that I managed at Malachi Chapel Free Will Baptist Church Cemetery, Tyrrell County, NC will be transferred to User Name Anonymous (#46862836)

I transferred all of the memorials that I managed at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs to Ron West User ID 47389384

I value my Find-A-Grave participation based on how many memorials I have transferred to other members rather than how many memorials I control.

I honor and process any Transfer Requests that are not specific to my own direct and extended family members and relatives. To Request a transfer, you can use the menu structure that will document your transfer request communication. Select EDIT and then "Provide Suggestion"

Basically, you want a transfer, you got it. I don't hoard or control non-family memorials. I have a happy, productive life outside my Find-A-Grave membership. I'm NOT one of these people that cling to their false ego's by managing thousands of Find-A-Grave memorials. You don't have to beg or grovel to me like some of the other egomaniacs who accumulate high memorial numbers to occupy their empty lives while trying to create their own cyber site importance. I value my Find-A-Grave participation based on how many memorials I have created and transferred rather than how many memorials I control.

We just listened to a discussion of this tragedy on Radio Liberty and want to thank you for all the information you included in this Memorial. How sad that most of us remain unaware of such critical events. Also, thank you for inspiring us to transfer our Memorials to others.

Thank you for your note. I made several corrections for the children on my pages for John and his wife, and I see everyone is now linked except one still pending. I appreciate the heads up on all this! The best to you, Catherine

RE: Impressive body of work :)
Thanks so much for letting me know, I'll delete it, no problem, believe it or not I do check them but miss a few.....As far as the profile I was helping to document Cook County, Berrien and Brooks. I actually see the grave sites listed here to verify with a picture. Thanks again and if you see anymore don't hesitate to let me know. Cat

RE: Ivadean's memorial updated - Thanks
Family Manic
I, too, haunted the graveyards and took LOTS of pictures. Still feel drawn to NC. Trying to sell our home but so far no nibbles. My public trees are Carter and White [which includes Wynns from Bertie, Ballance from Currituck, etc.].

Let me know if I can help in any way. Beth
