Family geneologist, looking for Pennsylvania families with the names Harvey, Anderson, Youngblood, Barlow, Worthington, Whitmoyer. Heavily into the Chester and Lycoming County branches of these families. Big interest in St. Peter's Pikeland Churches as well.
NICKNAMES - The "nickname" section has, in my opinion, been being misused. Most nicknames are included in the obituary, and need not be repeated elsewhere in the memorial. Things like "Thomas" (Tom) and "Lawrence" (Larry) are redundant, while monikers like "Poppy," "Mimi," "Gramps," etc are nicknames used by a select few and are NOT the person's nickname used by everyone. Other names, such as "Stinky" for a seven year old who died of cancer, or "Rocket Child" for an infant born prematurely, are, to put it bluntly, obscene. This section is best used for people who have gone by some other name their entire lives and who may not even be known by their given name, such as "Sarah Ann" with a nickname of "Ethel."
I am in this to help other people. Linking family members together is something I love to do. However, the more work I do here, the more rude people I encounter. Please treat me, and everyone you meet, with respect and kindness.
