Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on the family genealogy, with widely varying levels of vigor, since the late '60s. I have been photographing family graves for quite a few years, but have only recently started trying to get the records here at Find A Grave corrected and linked.

My thanks go to all the contributors who have created the framework I'm trying to build upon.

I'm starting with my own extended family, either entering missing members, or requesting corrections and transfers of those already in the database. Once I begin adding non-family members, I'd be happy to transfer them to their own relatives on request.

All transfer requests must be submitted using the edit tab and Suggest a Correction from the memorial in question. Please state your relationship to the person requested. I'm not a stickler for FAG guidelines on transfers, but I would still like to know where they are going. The closer your relationship to the memorial, the better.

Names of particular interest to me are:
Michigan- Machiela/Machiele, Lievense, Siersema, Glas/Glass, De Haan, Vander Yacht
Ohio- English, Detrick, Miller, Bayer
Pennsylvania- Miller

John Bosch Jr
I am trying to locate my great grandmother Janka Terpstra. I just found the link for John Bosch Jr and on his marriage information it states Janka Tersptra as his mother. Does this name sound like something you have come across. Thanks

That's fine if you don't want to change information. My information came from the following sources, U.S. Social Security Death Index; U.S. Public Records, 1970-2009; U.S. Federal Census, 1930 and 1940; U.S. GenealogyBank Obituaries, 1980-2014; Michigan Obituaries, 1820-2006.

RE: James Smith
your memorial should be deleted, it is a duplicate for the James Smith I posted.
