Bio and Links
My name is Dennis J. Bender, I have been involved in Genealogy for 30 years. I live in Omaha, NE. I have followed my gg-grandfather Peter (Joannes Petrus) Bender (1825-1910) and his 9 children and their families. I have a 800 page book with over 4500 names. My family came from Mannebach, Germany, Near Beltheim, Germany in 1857, then settled in Henry, IL. In 1885 they settled in Cornlea, Platte County, NE. Some of the names I follow are Bender, Boesch, Borer, Fischer, German, Leibel, Pfeifer, Redler, Schumacher, Ternus, Yilk, Van Ackeren, to name a few. I just got involved with FAG and have found it very useful. If I can help someone I will.

Find A Grave Changes
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: Schneider
Magdalena Maack Schneider was my great-grandmother. Given that I am new to any action on Find A Grave, I'm not sure what transferring entails. I thank you for documenting this piece of family history.

Dennis - no need to send the photo. I think it would be best to get a current photo with all dates engraved on it & post that to the memorial. I have accepted all the additions you sent. JudyC

Dennis, I would be happy to ck for dates on the stone, but the best way for this to be handled is to make a "photo request". When I do get to the cemetery, I go to ALL the photo requests & print them off & spend a couple hours finding them & posting them to the memorial. Also, since we currently have too much snow to see many stones, it may not get searched for until spring/summer. Also, there are a couple other volunteers in this area & if you make a "photo request" from the memorial page, an email is sent to all volunteers within a certain range of miles therefore increasing your chances of having a photo taken & posted to the memorial. Thank you. Judy

I suspect this is her husband, but I am not a relative & until someone can confirm this relationship I cannot make the link. The information for the memorial which I created were taken from an index of the cemetery. The only thing I have is a name. As I either find or receive information, I update the memorials. I will add the information you sent to her bio with your Find-A-Grade contributor number. If you find out the the William in St. Gabriel's in her husband, please feel free to let me know & I would be happy to link them together. Thanks!! Sincerely, Judy
