OCT 2019 NOTE - FAG fixed the famous duplicate I sent in. Just took a few days longer.
SEP 2019 NOTE - Tried the new duplicate reporting feature for the 1st time. I sent in 10 pairs, including one where the original memorial was designated famous. All of them came back yesterday merged as I requested, except the famous one. That duplicate is still there. Maybe they need to do more research for a famous. But I am very pleased with the results so far. Some of these have been hanging out there for years. Our local DAR added a raft of Revolutionary War graves about 10 years ago without checking for duplicates. I thought a couple of these were a bit unclear, but FAG put them all thru' as I requested. WOO HOO! I will have to look up some other dups I haven't bothered with since I knew the fix would take months.
JUNE 2019 NOTE - I have not been very active since Sept 2018 due to a variety of medical problems. I am still dealing with those, but beginning to make some headway and get back to working on FAG. I need to use the new Duplicate reporting feature to fix some longtime issues.

My grave location research is mostly centered on my Kirby and Hipple relatives, although I do some famous graves, too. The logo photo is my paternal grandmother, Alice Richman Kirby Bunting, who lived to be 93 (FAG #110212030). She used to take us to check on her pre-need grave stone when we were kids.
I'm not a genealogist, but I like to visit the graves of people I care about. Most of my activity involves graves in central PA and southern NJ.

Born in Philadelphia. Graduated Wilson College (Biology) & Drexel University (Library & Information Science). Mother of Matthew E. Bianchi (1986-2012, FAG#155351725). I have lived in central PA for the last 30+ years. Retired since 2013.

I have an electronic copy of the database roster for the Woodstown Friends Burial Ground (Salem Co, NJ) up through 2015.
I have a DVD of The Cemeteries of Marietta (Lancaster Co, PA) which covers through 2010. The Marietta DVD includes photos of all marked graves. If you need a photo for Marietta Cemetery or any other cemetery in Marietta Borough before 2011, I can get it for your from the DVD.

NOTE : My GG GF John Hipple's VA grave stone has been placed!!! On October 5th 2017 I visited his grave and took photos. He is memorial FAG# 161455430. The bio recounts his interesting military career. Check out his memorial!

NOTE : Still systematically adding information and, when needed, memorials from the Woodstown (NJ) Friends Burial Ground database. I have completed a first pass adding all the records from the database to FAG. I will continue to work with contacts from the Meeting to resolve discrepancies and clean up the data. I want to create an annotated map showing which graves need to be photographed.
