Bio Photo The Key To Any Puzzle Is Laying Down The First Piece...... ~Lorie

That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information – I applaud you for it – that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right –

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information – byte me

Hi there. I saw you had entered the information for Wabu Krutop (D. 14 Jan 1946). Just wanted to let you know he was born in 1863 in Estonia.

Joseph Dunham, #99374769
Hi Lorie,

I am researching Joseph Dunham,

I am looking for any hard proof that he was born in Bakersfield, Vermont, or that he was indeed the son of Jesse Dunham and Lois Hatch.

Joseph is linked as a child to Jesse, who is recorded in the History of Royalton, Vermont, by Mary Evelyn Wood Lovejoy. The problem is, in that genealogy, Jesse's son Joseph is recorded as having married a Pauline Joiner, and dying in Iowa in 1864. Despite this, every single tree I have found online attributes my Joseph to Jesse & Lois.

Do you have any insight into this?? Any leads would be helpful.

Hi Lorie!
I don't really know how this all works yet. I made some updates to my aunt Marie's memorial today, and got an email saying it was updated. When I went to look at it, it now says I'm maintaining it, but I don't know how to do what I need to do. I need to add her siblings, and the way it is now, she is listed as one of her siblings, so her name needs to be removed from "Siblings." Her siblings are in order from oldest to youngest: Marcella Oser; Dorothy F. Pursley; and Donald E. Sexauer (whose name is already correctly listed as a sibling). I found how to edit the bio/spouse, parents, etc., but don't know how to get in to the Siblings area. Could you please direct me and send me instructions on how to do it. My email address is Your help w/this would be greatly appreciated.

Mari Ringstad
Jacob T. Hammer at Woodenville Memorial Cemetery
Hello Lorie!

I am Mari Ringstad from Norway. I am looking after descedants after Rønnaug I. Hammer who was the mother of Jacob T. Hammer. They left Norway together August 12´th in 1870, together with several other family members. Are you a relative of Jacob? Jacob was a second-cousin of my great-grandfather. I just saw that you had put a virtual flower in memory at Jacobs tombstone at Find A Grave, thats why I am writing to you!

Do you know anything about anyone else in this family?????
I would be very pleased if you know anything.

Joseph Dunham
Hi there,
Just wanted to let you know that the memorial for Joseph Dunham at St. John's Anglican in Penville, Tecumseth, Simcoe County, Ontario has the correct wife and kids but the wrong parents, siblings and birth place attached. I'm still trying to figure out who his parents are, and where he was born but your Joseph actually died in Oct 1864 in Almoral, Deleware County, Iowa. He married Pauline Joiner (b. 23 Dec 1800 d. 1871), in Royalton 11 Nov 1823, according to the Royalton history book that details his family.

Please, please correct this info as I have found this in every tree for Joseph Dunham that I have searched on ancestry. People are adding without sourcing at all except for other trees and this memorial. Once the weather improves, I will visit the Penville graveyard and see if I can decipher his grave marker as it still exists, but according to the photo I found it is very well weathered. I'll keep you updated.

Thank you so much for all the good work you do to help the rest of us in our family searches!!
