Bio and Links
To whom it may concern, my bio is my bio, I have been a findagrave member for quite a few years. I am not a name collector like others, but I am territorial and would like to be able to place memorials up for people in my area (Ashland, Fountain Springs, Gordon, Girardville, Lavelle, Locustdale)that are in the local newspapers and funeral home websites, but alas I can't, someone from far away keeps putting them up.

If you are going to put memorials up and if the info is provided in the obit (aka-bio), please enter it. Don't just leave the places born & died blank because it is quicker for you to enter them and grab them before someone else does.
Do it correctly or don't do it at all.

I know my area (North of the mountain) of Schuylkill county very well and what I don't know I make sure to find out.

And UPDATE, UPDATE, I am slowly but surely adding cemmie records for a certain cemetery in my area, I have the letters A, B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,L,M, & N, done so far.
I have also transcribed the St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Middleport, Pennsylvania
Helped with Odd Fellows in Girardville; St Joseph's (Old & New), Ashland; and St Mauritius (Old & New), also Ashland. Sts Peter & Paul, Port Carbon. With more to come as time & weather permits. Upcoming Citizens Cemetery, Lavelle.
Big Thanks to fellow deceased Findagraver- Keith McKain, for entering all the pictures and memorials that you did for me.
If it were not for you entering them for me, those 2700 plus memorials in Schuylkill co area wouldn't be up there now and Big Thanks to FAG, for turning them over to me to maintain.
Hugs & Thanks to Peggy Scully who is up there in Heaven now, I'll take care of your memorials.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber & Robert Miller whose numerous memorials I also manage.

RE: Kiehl duplicate
I made the merge request to Find A Grave but nothing so far. I know that you can delete the duplicate record if you maintain it, even if someone else created it. You just can't remove photos posted by others on a memorial. Please try to delete the record. Thank you.

Helen Macri & Family in Holy Sepulchre
Hi and thanks for contacting me. I have transferred Helen and Elizabeth to your care; however Peter's memorial originated from contributor Keith Allen (#46509008). You would need to contact him for a transfer.

Thanks and warm regards.

About the duplicate and more

Hello Ms. Joanne!

Thank you for the heads up. I search for Elenor's husband, but he didn't "ping" and show up; hence, the accidental duplicate. I hate when that happens! I do appreciate you letting me know and I've corrected it.

I was wondering, even though its all the way in California, do you know of any Shenandoah Heights or Schuylkill County obits for Eleanor's sister Mary Frances (Twardzik) Gish?

I couldn't find her place or burial* or if she was... etc.

If you do have a reply, please respond via EDIT TAB msg from Eleanor (Twardzik) Zale's memorial # 143262432 .

Again, Thank you!


Mary Frances T. (Twardzik) Gish
(m/d in 1967: L. Frank Gish (Gesicki))
b 09 Mar 1916; Shenandoah, Schuylkill, PA
d 14 Nov 2002; Long Beach, Los Angeles, CA

RE: Carrie Foster
Thanks for the transfers but you did not have to do it. Milner or Ray as he was called was a terror, drank heavy. All my dad's cousins were terrified of him . I am in touch with his son, Ray Evert Jr who lives out in Madison, Wisconsin and is a noted and retired Professor of Botany. So different of his dad. One note of interest on Milner Ray Evert, oddly he had the gift of healing and knew the art of Pow Wow or how ever they referred to it. I don't know where it came from as his sister's,Mabel, Laura, Cyrilla, Lottie my grandmother Carrie included were such staunch church goers.
