Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that Ancestry.com will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- sometimes their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.|
You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

|Sheri McInturff||RE: Thomas family grave photos|
I did look around a bit. The headstone that I was originally there to photo was Charles Curtis Thomas and since Minna Lee Thomas and Victor C. Thomas were on each side I snapped those as well. I didn't see any other Thomas's in the immediate area. My in-laws are buried at this cemetery and it's pretty close to home. I can look around a little more next time I'm there.
|Bob Rowe||RE: Jonathan Collier grave photo|
To the left of him is Walter and Essie Copper. To the right is Ludwig and Magda Sandberg. Jonathan is the sole occupant of the cemetery file number 6341.

|Half-Shire Historical Society||RE: Re: Edit requests for Gilbert & Eliza Dunbar|
Hi there, we are trying to create lists for this cemetery. And even now, the cemetery is putting up markers for each section with numbers and letters.
If you could change the plots to match, we could sort by letters / numbers
right now the word section or sect. comes between o and s
is what the rest look like. its a live update list of findagrave for that cemetery.
If you dont want to change it, we can always manually change them each time on our end. just an extra step.
|Barbara Keil||RE: John Moyer grave photo|
You are very welcome. Actually, the visit to Wheatfield Cemetery was part of our annual local genealogy club "field trip" and I was the one with the smart phone app. In looking at some of the Moyer obits on Find A Grave I noticed that the family must have been on Klemer Road..... that is where I live! Must be one of the older homes. Do you have a census record? I might be able to figure it out and take a current photo. I have lots of local families on my tree on Ancestry.
|AlleCattSTU||RE: Clark Charlesworth grave photos|
You're certainly welcomed, Bob...there are others in the plot, and I think we got shots of most of them; will have to see who still needs pix on memorials.
|Jack||RE: Dean & Julie Wilson grave photos|
Hi Bob, I found a couple of online resources that may help you out.
Here you can make a request for records.
Fourth item down; same person as above, but some other listings here too that may be of help.
Hope these help. Good luck!

|David Michael||RE: Capt. Richard Lennan grave photo|
Well Bob you are welcome. Richard was easy to find or I just might be getting better at finding the locations. Always glad to find a marker, instead of just grass. You mention Harrisburg, could I ask in what state. There at least two dozen cities with that name. Glad I could help. Dave
|Jack||RE: Earl Wilson grave photo|
I do have the photos for them. If you want to put in the request I will take care of it ASAP.

|TimeTraveler||RE: Trickey/Trottier surname?|
Those surnames do not stand out to me, however, Green Bay has 3 giant cemeteries that are not yet completely documented. While they may be buried somewhere near Little Suamico, people are also frequently buried in Green Bay. You could call the 3 big cemetery offices (all 3 are well staffed daily) and have them do searches for you on those names. All 3 have electronic records these days. They are also the 3 oldest cemeteries in the city.
Allouez Catholic Cemetery
Fort Howard Cemetery
The Brown County Library also has a genealogy department. Mary Jane Herber is the usual person working there. While she might come across as brisk on the phone, she would be an excellent resource to ask for suggestions.
Also, the University of Wis Green Bay Cofrin Library has a special collections department on their 7th floor. They are the historical records repository for the top half of Wisconsin and some of Upper Michigan. Once again, they would be another good resource of where to begin looking. They have tax rolls, city and county directories, probate records and plat maps for Wisconsin land. I bet some of them could help get you unstuck.
I live in Arizona now so I won't be much help from here.
Best wishes on your search.
