Bio and Links
June, 2017
I will have limited computer access during June. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

Recently had my DNA tested and it verified that I am almost 50/50 Finnish and Irish heritage.

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

I was wondering the name "Bacon" was attached to my great great grandmother Emma Darling Craig. My family has records and her maiden name was Darling, not Bacon. I have attached a link to her son, Don Darwin Craig's death certificate which shows her maiden name as Darling.
Thanks. Chris Clauson

I finally received my great grandparents transfer and I am in the process of moving my data. I have requested a link to my new site for his father, but have not completed his mother. Didn't want to confuse you with the edit.

RE: Allport's moved to Belcrest
Hello again, Ann.

I noticed you recently created a memorial for my great-grandfather, Norman Lewis Allport, #169796151

Thank you so much for doing this. A few years back, I was given permission to manage the memorial for his wife, Augusta Carolina Donaldson, who is buried near him in Belcrest.

Would you be willing to transfer management of Norman's memorial over to me ? I would really appreciate it. I also noticed that you created the memorial for Oscar Leonard Donaldson, #136212994, and would request transfer of that one too.

Thanks again for all you do on Find A Grave. Your time and effort are very much appreciated. Mike Savage

RE: William B Helm
Hi Ann, thanks for checking into this. I have been aware of the Kathryn Helm who died in Los Angeles in 1943, but William Helm says he is a widow in the 1920 census. So does the Kathryn Helm in California. So, I can only conclude that both statements are false and that they simply went through a bitter divorce.
