Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on the family genealogy, with widely varying levels of vigor, since the late '60s. I have been photographing family graves for quite a few years, but have only recently started trying to get the records here at Find A Grave corrected and linked.

My thanks go to all the contributors who have created the framework I'm trying to build upon.

I'm starting with my own extended family, either entering missing members, or requesting corrections and transfers of those already in the database. Once I begin adding non-family members, I'd be happy to transfer them to their own relatives on request.

All transfer requests must be submitted using the edit tab and Suggest a Correction from the memorial in question. Please state your relationship to the person requested. I'm not a stickler for FAG guidelines on transfers, but I would still like to know where they are going. The closer your relationship to the memorial, the better.

Names of particular interest to me are:
Michigan- Machiela/Machiele, Lievense, Siersema, Glas/Glass, De Haan, Vander Yacht
Ohio- English, Detrick, Miller, Bayer
Pennsylvania- Miller

RE: James Smith
your memorial should be deleted, it is a duplicate for the James Smith I posted.

Covell Funeral Home in Traverse city, Michigan in charge of memorial service.

I got your request to transfer the above memorial but to my dismay, you want me to give credit to a source I may or may not have used in the biography information. I do rewrite biographies so as to keep away from plagarism accusations. I may have used Chiles-Laman Funeral Home as well. As you might have noticed, I have no photograph posted from either source. If you would like me to copy and paste the obit you referred to in the biography section of the memorial, let me know. Posting your reference to the biography I have clearly written myself is out of the question. Send me a msg through the above memorial as to your desires and I will do so before transfer. Thanks

RE: Geertman family
Thank you! I was not sure if you were also related to the Geertman's. Thanks for putting them in as I did not know where they were buried.

Re: Machiela family
Hello - I just wanted you to know that I have taken and posted headstone photos for the five babies in the Machiela family (1933, 1937, 1938, 1940 and 1946). Cheers - DJB
