"Quality Memorials vs Quantity" Please remember these are our family members you are posting. Have some respect for them and do your due diligence or don't do it at all.
Born and raised in Central PA. Love the area, but not the taxes! As I grow older I have become obsessed with history, genealogy and where I came from. I want to be able to pass my work onto others in my family.
My full time job is as a Real Estate agent which takes me all over Central PA. I hear some many wonderful stories and have had the pleasure of visiting, some homes that were, at one time, in my family.
I take my work on this site very seriously. Miss information can lead you on the wrong path. I feel it's my duty when I add memorials, to find out who these people were & link the families together. I search death certs and SS filings and military records. The dead are not singular, they had families and loved ones that need our respect, by doing some research and not just slapping a memorial up. Everyone makes errors, but fixing them as they are found, is the key.
I understand there is a change that you can add all the former married names to a memorial. I will only add them in the notes area and not the main name. It will either be their current last name with maiden name or name on stone. No need to junk up a memorial for someone that has been married many times. After all they are ex's for a reason.
I am open to transferring memorials but please let me know how you are related because most of these are my family too.
