Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/17 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

Re edits on Cook
On Find A Grave I can only edit memorials I manage.
I can not link or change relationships attached to a memorial unless I manage said memorial.

RE: Beth El Cemetery
I simply climbed the gate. I got tired of trying to catch the people who cut the grass. No, due to time constraints, I was unable to photograph the whole cemetery. At the corner, there is a tree growing next to the pillar. I used it to pull myself up and over- I figured if I got caught, the charge could be no more than trespassing.

If you can read the stones-please help. I understand that according to where one came from, some words may have dual meanings, so I do not want to try to interpret.

memorial transfer

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer John R. Eldert's memorial to me if this is not your ancestor? (Memorial #101140855) John R. Eldert is my 4th great uncle. I've been working on researching him as well as his siblings (my 4th great grandfather being one of them). I would like to update his profile with additional information/obituary that I have, as well as work on linking the family's memorials to their profiles.

Thank you for creating the memorial!
