Bio and Links
Please take note that any pictures taken as a request by myself will be used for my ancestry.com familytree. I started to really get into genealogy in about 2010. I utilize this as well as other websites. If I take a photo for you, you may do as you like with it.

I enjoy helping others with their genealogy and I have a lot of info especially for the Westchester, NY area.

I will be happy to transfer anyone to you that is not near and dear to my heart. Please tell me your relationship and if you are closer to the person that I am, I will transfer them to you. I have recently added veterans from Westchester, NY that are buried in Yonkers. Most of them are not related to me. In addition. most of the people that I have added photos and other info for in North Carolina, are also not related to me and I would be glad to transfer them.

Also, if you do not hear from me right away, please resend your message in a few weeks. Like anyone else, I go through busy periods.

I have just found out that I need a person's contributer ID in order to transfer a person to them. Please include it with any messages for transfer that you send me.

Another issue that I have dealt with recently pertains to the issue of edits. Most edits will go directly to the required block, for instance name, birth date, death date etc. however, information that goes in the "bio" section gets e-mailed to the original person that set-up the memorial and they need to copy and past it into the "bio" box (for instance an obituary or info from the familysearch.com website).

"THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust."

RE: Surles of Dunn, NC
No, thank you. I live in Texas, and the Surles families in Dunn may be distant cousins but are not direct ancestors.

RE: Matilda Horvath
Hi Marilyn, Thank you very much for the transfer. She doesn't appear to be related. Horvath was Matilda's married named. She was from NY and her husband Louis was from CT.

RE: Genealogy Research
I am attempting to photograph the entire Old St. Raymond's Cemetery. I've been working on this for the last 5 or 6 years. I don't think that I'm even half way done yet. I work near the cemetery. My own family is from Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens mostly.

RE: Lillian Grace Tobin
Hi,
My gr-grandfather, Michael Tobin, emigrated alone from Ireland and did not have any relatives in the Yonkers/ NYC area, nor were any of his children named Lillian. He had friends in Yonkers (Coopers) but no relatives. His children were orphaned and were never able to find any of their Tobin relatives elsewhere in the U.S. or Ireland.
Sorry I can not be of any help.

Geneva Williams (47346284)
Hello, you transferred Geneva Williams to me without asking first if it was okay to do so. I do appreciate the gesture, but I am not a family member. I am just working on a tree for a good friend and she is in that tree. I have transferred her back to you. I specifically note on my profile not to transfer people to me as I am working on several family trees for friends.

Monica :-)

Hi. The Social Security Administration knew her middle initial. That is where I got the initial.

Jacob Brill, Oakland cemetery
Hi Marilyn,
I just had a question about the pictures of the gravestone you added to Jacob Brill's memorial. I know you originally created it and then transferred it to me. Thanks again. This is sect. 1,plot 377. This plot has about 18 people in it who are all related to me including Jacob who is my 3rd gr.grandfather and my Mom. As you can see in the picture I attached to this memorial the only stones that are present that I've seen are for the Riker and Minnerly families. There are many members of the Brill family in this plot however I don't see any stones. You noted that you couldn't read the stone. Judging from your picture it looks like it's in the vicinity because of the road but not right where Leonard Riker's gravestone is. So I was just wondering if you shed some light on this stone for me.
Thanks, Rick
