Bio and Links
Bio Photo I must confess that I am a Genealogy addict for which there is no cure. Much to husband's dismay!

In past months I have not had the time for Find A Grave but I hope to get back in to it on a regular basis. With my crazy work schedule there never seems to be enough hours in my day, but I will try to respond to emails and edits as quickly as I can.

Although I have lived in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for almost 40 years my family history runs through many states. Primarily PA, MT, WA, KY, MI, MO, ID, TN, OH, NC, CT AND NY..I seem to be finding "lost" relatives in new states all of the time.

It is not my intention to amass large numbers of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.

I am not a 'stickler' for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I do not "own" the memorials that I create, unless I am directly related to them. If someone was near and dear to you and you would like the memorial, please ask.

If you see any mistakes in my postings, please let me know and I'll be sure to make the appropriate corrections.

John Wesley Eckman
I have been researching my family tree and found what I believe to be an error on John Wesley Eckman's findagrave. I have found a biography of John Walter (not Wesley) Eckman, on which his parents are listed as Baltzer Draucher and Susanna C (Wescott) Eckman. I have also found the same information in the biographical annals of Lancaster Co PA. I do have a John Wesley Eckman in my family tree with this same birth and death date as you have in the findagrave, except my information for John Wesley's parents are Joseph and Mary Ann (Emerick) Eckman. My John Walter Eckman birth date is 7 Mar 1844 and his death date is 8 Oct 1919. John Wesley in my tree has a spouse and child same as you have in findagrave, so the only thing that needs updating i believe would be the parental information you have on him. Can you please look in to this and change if need be. All my sources so far seem legit, but would appreciate a correction. Thank you so much for your time.

RE: Keith Boding edits
My father spelled his name Lawrence his whole life, but we found out at his funeral he was actually Laurence. Obviously, Keith's birth certificate holds the answer. Tahoma would likely change their records based on a birth cert, but the VA would probably be a little more paperwork. Thanks for the follow-up.

Keith Boding edits
Hi Carolyn. I only have one issue with your edit requests that I want to share with you. Tahoma uses Keith's military documents (primarily his DD214) for things like birth dates and that information is also available thru the VA's website for national cemeteries. Though his placard, when finished, will only give the years, the VA website lists his birth date as the 16th. I'll be approving the edits, but I'm going to leave the birth date as listed with Tahoma and the VA until a correction can be made to those sources. Thanks.
