Am a retiree and an armchair genealogist who likes to help others with their family history. Have taught a beginners Genealogy class at local university for 17 years before retiring. Live in the center of Washington State.

I do not have any relatives buried in this area so would be glad to transfer memorials I have created to others who have a relationship to the deceased.

Hi Dave, I see that you would be willing to transfer a memorial over to a family member. I am the niece of Patricia Kelly's. She is my mom's sister and I have been trying to get everyone linked up.

Would love to take over my aunt's memorial if you'd like. I am the genealogist of the family. My mom is Laura Ann (Hoppe) Cole. I am working at building some of the family memorials that haven't been done.

Thanks so much for considering

Dear Mr Wash,

Thank you for creating the memorial for my cousin Frances Elnora Wilson. I have family history to include in her public memorial. Might you consider transferring her memorial to my care?

Thank you, David, for finding and photographing the marker for Paulina W. Humphrey in the IOOF Cemetery in Ellensburg. I am in the process of ordering a military marker for her son David, and will post it when it is set.
Sincerely, Dorothy Brandner, Eugene Pioneer Cemetery Assoc. historian

RE: Kaminsky at High Valley
Hi Dave, Thanks for letting me know. I hadn't checked it for a couple of days. I hope he posted his photo on mine.

You're welcome for working with you. You are great to work with.

I think I have one more set of distant relatives buried in the IOOF in E-Burg or one of the cemeteries in Roslyn or Laurel Hill in Cle near. Not sure which others it might be.

It's the Forenpohar family: John, Margaret and children Wayne, Vernon and Allen.

I know Margaret is resting in the IOOF but not sure on the others but I would assume so.

If you have time at some point to check and see if they are all resting in either the IOOF or High Valley, then I'll update their sites and then request photos.

Thanks so much again for the Kaminsky help and for any info you can give me on the Forenpohar's.

Hi Dave, I'll wait a couple of days and see what he does. I guess I should check by name only and death year before I add someone. But it's frustrating that they assume that if the cemetery isn't mentioned, that they just add people. I usually wait a few days after someone passes to see if an obit is published or I go to the funeral home and see if I can find the cemetery listed even if the obit doesn't mention it.

If he doesn't contact me, I'll send all the links and then delete mine.

Thanks for the heads up and you have helped me with photos of my relatives resting in the IOOF Cemetery.
