Rules that I operate by:|
1. I only post memorials that I've seen (and usually photographed) after walking a cemetery. I will not post a memorial off of a cemetery list or obituary.
2. I try to photograph every memorial I post. I don't always post photos, because it's too time consuming to do so for all the memorials I've posted. If you request a photo of one of the memorials I've posted, I most likely already have one.
3. I will never claim a photo request in advance. I am often frustrated when I have a photo ready to post, but find someone has already laid claim to the request, but has not posted anything (especially during the winter).
4. I will happily transfer any memorial I've posted to anyone with a greater claim on the memorial than I have. So far, I have not turned anyone down that has requested a transfer.
5. I will get to your requested corrections as soon as I can - I do this in batches about every 2-3 weeks. Be patient.
6. I generally won't copy obits into memorials; you can always ask, however.
7. I try not to be competitive. I'm not trying to post more memorials or volunteer pictures than anyone else. Another reason why I won't claim a photo in advance.
8. Don't ask me to remove a duplicate memorial if I posted my memorial first. I hate it when people post memorials off of lists without checking first for dupes (which usually results in multiple dupes).
9. If you contact me about a memorial, be specific about what you want me to change or do. Don't inundate me with biographical data - I'm not doing your family tree.

|nixwg||RE: New Baden/St George Cemetery|
I don't like dupes either and would be happy to defer to you if I was in error. In this case I think you are wrong about them being the same cemetery. One is the city cemetery on the west side and one is the catholic cemetery on the east and north sides. They are physically delineated when you walk them. You are misleading people by creating postings in the wrong cemetery. It would be like combining Carlyle City Cemetery and St. Mary's Cemetery. They just aren't the same even though they are co-located. There are a number of other examples in the are of religious cemeteries abutting secular cemeteries. You shouldn't just lump them together.
If you have postings that you created in New Baden but are actually in St. George, you should go back and correct them. It will help researchers who rely on the correct information.
In the future I will check to see if there is a duplicate in New Baden and if it is wrong, I will notify the creator to correct it before posting a photo. Thanks for the heads-up.

I could be wrong but I think your page for Mary Koch is the same Mary Koch as:
|Glenn D Reasoner||Fanny Hill|
Re: Fanny Hill, in Trenton Cemetery.
First of all thanks for taking this photo and posting the memorial.
The photo posted to the memorial has her death date as 7/28/1865.
Could it be 7/28/1885 with of the number 8 scratched off to appear to be 1865?
Henry Hill and Fanny Hill appear together in the 1870 and 1880 Fed Census.
I'm assuming Henry Hill's grave you have listed is right next to Fanny's or very near.
It appears the couple did not come to IL at least until after 1870.
|Richard Hoefle||Johannes Abendroth|
Augusta Abendroth daughter of Johannes was my Great-Grandmother. Have you been able to find anything on his wife and where she might be buried?
I can find no real info on her.
Thanks you for the transfer of Mary Scott, Daniel and Micha Rutherford. Michal Scott
