Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello.

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

PROCEDURES FOR LINKS, ADDING OR CHANGING INFO, TRANSFERS:

Please do not be offended, but for a number of reasons, including the volume of requests, I transfer memorials in accordance with Find A Grave's published guidelines. If you request a transfer, please be sure to include your relationship to the person who is the subject of the memorial. I cannot respond to transfer requests for all memorials with the same surname in a cemetery or to requests for a large number of memorials with the same surname.

If there are entries which need to be linked, please send the info to me via the correction/EDIT option or Suggest a Change (SAC) in the upper right corner and I will add the links. Also, if you would like me to add information to a memorial, please forward the relevant info via the SAC option for the quickest response.

If there is information in a memorial concerning a living person which you would like removed, please send me a request via the SAC option.

PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option. I do not make changes sent to my profile page. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL.

OBITUARIES: Find A Grave has updated its policy concerning the use of obituaries in memorials (See: "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" under the Frequently Asked Questions section). If you send a request asking that an obituary be added, please be sure to confirm in your message that you have complied with the policy or I will not be able to add it.

Generally, I do not link to unknown burials. Nor do I add raw US Census or similar records, preferring instead to add information in sentences.

Many thanks for the kind notes, thank yous, flowers and tokens which are left on the memorials. It is rewarding to know that my work has helped someone.

Thank you.

Twist,

I am trying to research a number of people for a family friend. I have a number of edits on memorials that you are the administrator. Would it be possible to accept the edits so I can see where I am at with the family.

Thank you for your time, have a nice holiday.

I'm not sure how or when I surfed into that erroneous image. I don't think I have any additional information for you. Death certificates from 1943 are generally protected by privacy law. Try putting this in the seekingmichigan.org search box: 005362077_01382

Hello. First, thank you for all your work with these memorials. I am writing about Charlotte Marie Burke Walls memorial. My correction was declined because the info didn't match your records.
I believe someone wrote "Ne:" before her name as "Nee" was used to refer to maiden names.
We had this exact issue with a relative's birth record. Her record literally recorded her first name as "ReLeasa", because whoever wrote the memo added "Re:" as in "reference to."
Charlotte's parents were Basil E Burke and Lois Wilma Howden. She was the wife of my 1st cousin, 2x removed, Douglas Wilson Walls.
Her family appears together in the 1940 census with the surname Burke.
In her marriage and social security application she used the surname Burke. Her parents are also listed on that record.
I understand if you do not wish to change your record, but could you contribute a note to the memorial stating her maiden name was actually Burke?
Thanks again for all your work!

Edits for Edith Misener
All accepted, which you probably know already!

I total agree with what you wrote

when you get into the number of memorials you and I have, you notice how many people sent suggestions with no support and which are just wrong, on the face wrong - so thanks for asking for the support. What use is the posted info if it is wrong?

The group of us who ask for documentation to prove relationships etc is growing exponentially all in an effort to keep this site a reliable source of Family information.

Thank you for all you do to help keep it that way

Alison

My Uncle Gene H. Mayer - 1928 - 1988 - Place Of Burial in Niagara, Wisconsin Location?
Hi, My Uncle Gene H. Mayer - 1928 - 1988 - Place Of Burial in Niagara, Wisconsin Location? Gene H. Mayer - 1928 - 1988 - Memorial# 179944135 (Saint Anthony Cemetery). I'm not sure if he is buried there or in at: Hillcrest Cemetery. (Hillcrest Cemetery), his Memorial# 179944023. I have his memorial page in both cemeteries until I get the right cemetery where he was buried in at. I tried researching for it for years and still nothing atall and so I'm not sure where to start. Saint Anthony Cemetery and Hillcrest Cemetery offices both have records of people with: names, dates of births, dates of deaths, dates of burials of all with section numbers and Lot/grave numbers for those who are buried there. Please kindly respond for me asap? Thank-you.

Hi Twist,
"Pat" was my great uncle Gil's wife. I am a granddaughter of his brother Adrian who moved to Minneapolis from Escanaba in the 1920s.

Yesterday, I created a memorial for him linked with her and tracked down both their Plot info with the cemetery, and sent you an Edit to approve for "Pat" for the Plot info.

Thanks very much!
..Anne
