Thank you
Hi John,
Greetings from India!
I am an amateur historian from Bengaluru, India researching on the British officers who made a significant contribution to the state of Karnataka, India. Your contributions on this portal gave me good information on Major General RS Dobbs, who was the Collector of my home District- Tumakuru. Thank you. If you ever happen to visit this part of India, please do connect with me.
Cheers,

Thank you, John. It's so pleasant to receive your positive feedback.

I visited your lovely city for two weeks in November of 2013. I had a wonderful time. One of my favourite aspects of Dublin is its walkability. The climate too was far better than my home city. I'm descended from both Catholic and Protestant families from both sides of the border. I visited many of the counties within the Republic and a few in NI. I was amazed at the friendliness of the Republic and its citizenry. I'd highly recommend visiting the Republic to anyone travelling! I'm looking forward to visiting Dublin again soon.

Thanks again, John!

Cheers,
Lainey

RE: Links
Where would we be without rules!

My reply:

Everyone would be doing just what they wanted to do with the website.

I understand "why" you did the links but, at the same time, Find A Grave doesn't want them.

I have seen many time a copy and paste from Wikipedia and stating the source at the end....even Find A Grave has done that on a few Famous memorials.

Now you know. Don't remember the name on the memorial now to tell you.

Thank you!
Thank you for all the work on the cemeteries in Ireland.

I see that you posted outside links in some of your bios.

Just want you know what the guidelines say about that:

"Links to other websites or email addresses are not allowed within any memorial."

Hello John, I was delighted to see your post for Cornelius Murphy. He and his wife Ellen are my 3rd Great Grandparents. Their tombstone appears to be in the shape of a shield. Do you know what it may have signified? Also might you be able to tell me who would be the local genealogist in that area? I am planning my first trip to Ireland in April 2017 and would love to know more about my family. Cheers, Judy

Find A Grave Memorial# 162007387
I assure you I have no problem whatsoever with the photo you added-indeed I fully support it, but you should know that findagrave have introduced a rule that photos of memorials which are not in the cemetery where the deceased is interred, are no longer permitted. Consequently, those I have added of a family grave, for example, on which a soldier son buried elsewhere is remembered, are being deleted. They are even doing this on memorials in the famous category.

Please just send any edits through the edit on each memorial. Much more efficient for me than through emails. TY

RMS Leinster
Hello John, my great grandfather Leslie Robert Southam was killed on the RMS Leinster. Thank you for your page and photo of the memorial. I hope to get there one day! It has been recorded that his body was never found - I am not sure if that is true - but I have found an obituary saying his body was sent back to Birmingham where it was cremated and then he was buried in Brandswood Cemetery in Birmingham. I have already set up a Find a Grave page - would you mind linking it on your site in case any other relatives are searching in the future. Find A Grave Ref: 158313520
Thanks again - I found the information very interesting. Jo

Frank Vaughan (RMS Leinster) 1918. f-a-g ref #157512763
I've created the above memorial page, with a photo of his wife's grave in Wallasey, Wirral, which carries a memorial to him. I see from your 'RMS Leinster list off casualties' that he has no grave or memorial listed and the CWGC don't have him on their records for some reason.

RE: Lance Corporal William Greenwood
I have transferred him to your care, so that you can update his memorial as you find new information. Sad on the explosion that took his life! Please let me know if I have any other war-time memorials that you would like to maintain and I would be happy to transfer them to you...

James is my G-G-grandfather and I never thought to look for him in a military cemetery.
