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 2/23/16 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

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!

Would you consider transferring Gordon to me? He is one of my favorite uncles.

Thanks, Rita

RE: Uzal McCarter #131662718
After I sent you that note, I googled him and found a picture of the house referred to in the article - WOW! It is a beautiful home. The article about it was from 2014, so someone is still enjoying the lovely property.

Uzal McCarter #131662718
I like to read old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and try to match the stories and articles to memorials here on F-A-G. I found a little story in the Evening World (New York, NY) on 11/2/1916 about a home purchase by Uzal McCarter. I thought you might like to see it.

It is titled "Freedman's House Sold."
