I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Thank you for author Conklin Mann (1884/1966) transfer!
Thank you so very much for the surprise transfer! While studying the detailed Wm Ludlam of Southampton, 1943 TAG article by author, "Conklin Mann, Esq. of New York City" my curiosity arose. I will hope to discover that he and I are Ludlam/Ludlow distant cousins back in 1600s Long Island. Your kindness is much appreciated! Best to you and your lineages.

Transfer Memorial
If you would like, since you're downsizing memorials, I would take Oliver's. He is my 5th cousin.

I am related to her only down some twisted paths, not a direct line. Thanks for the offer. If you are wanting to divest of memorials, I'll take her, but am not a direct relative. Annie

Hi Jim
You and I have spoken before about the McIntosh family. Helen Pearl was my Grandfather Carl Fauver's sister.
We now have a newbie from the McIntosh side. He is 14 years old and a sweet kid. His grandmother is Phyllis Kaiser (daughter of Helen May McIntosh).
Tommy Pickle is his name. We met with his grandmother, mother and Tommy for lunch and they came back to the house to look at photos.

He's very new at this so I thought I'd tell you about him. If you get in touch with him and have problems explaining things, I'll be glad to help. He's a really smart kid and loves genealogy.
