PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" TAB FOR ANY AND ALL ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, TRANSFERS, ETC.|
I have been doing genealogy for over 40 years. I have started to take pictures of area cemeteries (Waukesha County area) and I am trying to submit them to various sites. I also take picture when I go on vacation to other parts of the USA and Europe.
If anyone needs a photo (which has not been re-sized) or has any corrections or additions please let me know.
Lately I have been getting many, many transfer requests without the needed information. If anyone requests a transfer,use the EDIT tab and the transfer request must contain the following information: Relationship; Parents, Siblings, Grandparents And Great Grandparents (which does not include Aunts/Uncles/Cousins) and your Find-A-Grave Contributor Number. A transfer cannot be done without the contributor number. It takes up too much time for me to search out the above information.
My sister, Lois has been helping with the corrections and additions and also looking for obituaries. My sister, Julie is also helping with taking pictures.

|TEXAS TUDORS||Henry A. Hengel & May Palen|
Yes, Henry A. Hengel married my first grand aunt, Mary A. PALEN. I would love to have the information on the HENGEL family too. I could enter it into the familysearch, if it is not there already. I am retired. I love history too. I have the PALEN line back to 1700's, but not the HENGEL's. Thanks for contacting me. I have been working on my Daddy's line, the KONECNY's of Bohemia.
God bless you, Sally

Many thanks for grave photo.

Hi, I noticed that you made a note on this memorial that Catherine's stone was never found. I was walking the cemetery today taking photos for someone else and just happened to take one of Catherine's. It is now posted to her memorial. -- Beth

Thanks for fulfilling my photo request for for Vee Worthen in the Panquitch City Cemetery. To take the time to find and photograph headstones takes dedication of pure love and your contributions to this site are endless. It takes many volunteers, like yourself "to build the Find A Grave village." Your efforts have increased the value of this site for those seeking their roots. May you be blessed for your service, knowing the work is not in vain. John

I truly appreciate the edit--otherwise I wouldn't even have known the photo was added. This is kind of you!

There has been some conversations at the cemetery about the black lettering of head stones. I think it is a cemetery choice, but, don't know for sure. The director stated that there had been some problems with people using black markers to enhance the lettering and that was considered "Defacing Government Property".
As I stated previously: "I work on readability of the headstone". I have many posted that have an issue because of lighting and the angle that I have taken the picture. I am going thru them and retaking and will repost so they are readable.
|David L Aten Sr||RE: Omaha National Cemetery Pictures|
My Gravestone pictures are a work in progress. I only live 3 miles from cemetery and volunteer there. I take a group of pictures then upload. If they don't turn out "readable" I retake. There are some posted now that I need to retake. "Readable" is my goal so they can be saved for posterity. My reason for adding the cemetery information and date is so that if/when the picture is separated from Find A Grave it still tells the whole picture. In my genealogy research I have found so many pictures that I wish I had names and places plus date/time frame. Once lost it cannot be recovered.
Safe travels. David
|David L Aten Sr||RE: Omaha National Cemetery Pictures|
Thank you for the reply on the pictures of cemetery entrance. As you say I could also add my picture of the cemetery entrance. We could discuss all day long "whose" picture was better. But, this is not about a better picture. I think it is about a Memorial Site and honoring Veterans. If I were to add my picture then we would have three picture on a lot of memorials. To clean it up I would still have to remove the pictures I have added to each memorial. Your adding a picture was the simplest way to add a picture to all the memorials. So in the future as a memorial is added it will be automatically added to the memorial. In essence I created the problem so I will endeavor to solve it. I will be systematically removing my picture from the memorials. In the end that will leave each memorial as "clean" as it can be and there will be a minimum number of picture on each memorial.
Again, my apologies. I take these memorials serious and expect others to do so as well. Sincerely, David
|Derry Bennett Creutz||Transfer of Delilah Martin in Nodaway County|
Memorial # 23174386
Hello, you previously allowed me to assume maintenance of my ggggrandfather's memorial. His name Jefferson Martin. This memorial is for his wife Delilah Martin. Could I please maintain this one as well. My ID #47743145. Derry Bennett Creutz
Thank you for your consideration in this regard.
You're right. She is a piece of work. She sent me a message a year ago, DEMANDING, I make a transfer to her so she could sponsor it. She also had a memorial for the same person, I notified find a grave, they deleted her memorial but merged some info.
When I refused, she called me names. Subsequently, she sent messages claiming to be the father, grandfather and family historian.
A year later she still wants the transfer. I told her nothing has changed. No idea who she is, but she should probably have her IP address blocked by find a grave.
She got my final reply, any further messages will be disregarded.
