Bio and Links
Son of Richard E Helman
Birthday 2/25/1956 Married to Tina (Kendall) Helman.
I have had a lot of interest in family history. I have been President of the Helman Reunion for about 15 years and update my family tree often. I love strolling the cemeteries looking for tomestones of family members. I also research the Talhelms, Beards, Shulleys, Sprenkles, and many other family names. I'am retired and this is a great way to keep in shape walking miles through the cemeteries often.

Cedar Grove Cemetery
oops, my previous message went through without me finishing.....

Thank you for locating the burial place of Jonathan G Strine #141240221, which led to locating his wife's burial and a daughter's burial.

Thank you again for your help! It's greatly appreciated!

Find A Grave TOS
While in many ways the TOS have become laughable because of the way in which they have been abused, if we don't start somewhere to have consistent policy it will only get worse.

It is clearly against TOS to have someone delete a memorial that has been transferred to to them to favor a newer memorial. The information from the second memorial should be added to the transferred memorial and then the newer addition is the one that should be deleted so that the original creator's name is always in the record.

I consider Crystal a personal friend, yet she is caught in the crossfire of a big bruhaha of an entire cemetery that I created having the memorials all show having been created by Mike Hahn, when he was not even a member when they were created and then all transferred to Crystal yet current Ancestry management/ownership refuses to correct this flagrant violation of their own TOS

RE: Transfers
Dear Douglas,
I did request that Crystal delete the duplicates. Does that go to a main hub that verifies it and deletes them or does Crystal delete them? I got the sites so that I could delete them. My father is not linked with the rest of his brothers and sisters but my sister will remedy that as she has my parents memorials. Frank and Ida are my grandfather's parents and I have Frank's parents memorials also but no one in my family can locate any pictures of Frank and Ida. It is so strange to me since I have older pictures then theirs would be. Ida's father is Lawrence. Do you know if any pictures exist of he and his wife? If you would know any one in the Helman family that have any pictures could you please ask them to contact me at Thank you, Brenda

Thank you for the tranfers of my aunt and grandfather. You probably aren't aware that my other grandparents didn't come through.

Hi Doug
I put her in the cemetery back in 2011 and have parents and siblings for her.
I don't know how to merge them you will have to go to findAGrave to do that.

I just saw your father's memorial and finally tied you to a "Sprenkle". I just want to take a moment to thank you for all your efforts and, in particular, all that you have contributed to the "Sprenkle" Find-a-Grave memorials.
