Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy and family research for several years. In the past several years, I have been entering listings for persons found in the local obituaries and also many of the local cemeteries. I would be very happy to add links or additional information to any of my listings. Thank you to everyone for providing additional information.

Please use edit tab for any corrections. It makes it easier to make revisions. Links, revisions and corrections sent in messages may not get taken care of very quickly. Also, before adding a memorial, be sure to do a thorough search to make sure the memorial hasn't been added. I've been receiving several emails saying my memorials are duplicates when in fact they were added sometimes several years before the one that mine is supposedly duplicating.

Please understand that I work full time and can't devote 100% of my time to this. The entries I make are from full obituaries and death notices that don't initially have all the information, but when the full obituary is posted, I add the missing info. In some cases this may take a few days, so please bear with me. If you have the full obit, please feel free to send it via the edit tab and I'll gladly add it at that time. I don't enter memorials just to see how many I can get either. The total just naturally keeps climbing every time I add some.

Before asking for a transfer, PLEASE read the FAG guidelines and rules. If you are requesting a transfer, PLEASE tell me how you are related so I can determine if the transfer will be made.

Due to the large number of people requesting transfers just so they can control a distant family member, I'm limiting my transfers to IMMEDIATE FAMILY, meaning parents, siblings, and grandparents, and I would appreciate being ASKED nicely to transfer instead of receiving demands. Please realize that you can't expect to have every single family member page in your care as there are thousands of contributors on this site and trees do overlap. I do not control every one of my relation on FAG, and don't expect to. I'm just happy to have them there so I can refer to them if needed.

Also, if you have nothing to add to the memorial, and just want to have the page because they are related, there's no need for a transfer. Unless you have extensive changes to be made, please just ask for links or additions to be made. I have a lot of time and sometimes costs for travel, etc. involved in my listings so I prefer to keep them unless they are direct family. If the person happens to be related to me, the transfer won't be made, but I will do corrections or additions.

Good Morning!! Are there any members related to Godfrey Fiester and his wife Mary Magdelena Kepner here? Their children were
Jacob 1782~ 1818
Henry 1783~
Daniel 1784~
Mary 1786~1815
Maria 1790~ 1855
Godfrey 1791~ 1842
Elizabeth 1793~ 1860 ...... MY connection
Benjamin 1794 ~ 1880
Susanna 1796 ~ 1831
Sophia 1799 ~ 1819
Charles 1799 ~1883
As with most geneology information the dates might be off, if so please correct me. I think Daniel died as a baby so might not have any desendants. I am trying to organize a family reunion of sorts in the fall of 2018..... ANY help tracking down this Reveloutionary War Patriots family would be most welcome........ thank you!

Need an Opinion
So I know I've been bothering you a lot lately and I am really sorry about bugging you. But I have a photo from the Mausoleum of Greenwood Cemetery that says Sadie L. Orr death: May 17, 1931. I was wondering if you think this may be the same person as one of your memorials, Sarah Elizabeth Orr (13211543). I'm going to make the memorial anyway so I don't accidentally lose the photo but if you find out before I do whether or not these two are the same person, let me know.

RE: memorial corrections
Oh okay! Thanks for the tip! Let me also just take this moment to say that you're sort of my hero since I started Cedar Falls grave hunting. Whenever I'm looking for photos on Find A Grave to use for my family tree I only ever find headstones and sometimes not even that. But the photos you put on the Cedar Falls memorials are actually of the person which I know fellow family history buffs like me really appreciate. So you're just really awesome for going to the trouble of finding photos of loved ones and putting them up on the website. I really admire you for your diligence and care.
