|Bio and Links|
I'm a 4th and 5th generation Berkeleyite through Edward James Brennan Sr and Michael Curtis on my mother's side; the majority of the memorials I've created or manage are related to those lines.|
My father was from Jacksonville, FL, and I also have memorials in FL, SC, and GA.
I add random memorials sometimes.
You are always welcome to ask for transfers; if it's not my own family I'm happy to transfer even if it's out of findagrave guidelines (also if you're a closer relative than I am, since I add very distant ones, I'll happily transfer to you).

Sorry it has taken so long to respond to your
email. I found it in my spam folder! Sigh...
I used the information found on the PenBelGen website for his birth date.
There were two dates listed.
Here's the link:
If you'd like me to change the birth date, just let me know.
|JP||RE: Maegaret Stewart photos|

You're welcome. Let me know if I can help any further. Joe

Hi. Your suggestion was a change in the birth date for Esther which was different than the date on her headstone. I made the change and it would be my pleasure to transfer of management of her memorial to a relative. Let me know if you receive the transfer OK. Joe

I would prefer if you would use the edit function to update the info. If you would like to manage her memorial I am more than happy to transfer her to you. I don't believe that I am related to her, I just live in this area and am trying to return the help to others by entering info and photos to Find-A-Grave that has helped me so much. Joe

|yithio||RE: Mary Ann McAlindon|
Just wanted to let you know that I've put up the photos of the other McAlindons in the plot with Patrick & Hugh J. Not sure what the relationship is - probably children of Patrick, but unfortunately I don't have time to research at the moment. I will upload the photo of the stone along with the empty space beside for Mary Jordan's, if that's all right with you. Cheers, Edie

Oh I am so glad you like the memorial! I literally spent three days on this family, tracking down all the kids I could find, figuring out which cemeteries in Ontario they were in (do you know HOW MANY cemeteries are named "St Mary's" or "Our Lady of..." in Canada???!!!) I actually started the research when another person asked me to help track her family back to Canada, and then that line led me to the bigger family, which led to Pennsylvania. It was so addictive :D
I would be happy to help you however I can. I have access to a pretty broad set of resources on both sides of the border...and am only a couple of hours from Sarnia.
BTW, curiously enough, I have a 3rd cousin with whom I've done research for almost 20 years who is a Brennan from Canada. Such a small world!
|SarniaKid||RE: Powell photos|
That would be great. Let me know anything you find out and I'll get that photo for you. The thrill of the chase!
