BIG Thx! - Much Appreciated !
Richard - I was Very Pleasantly Shocked to find your Wonderful Photos posted! I am not computer savvy enough to do this myself. It Thrilled me to see close up of stone memorial, the Santa Fe cross emblem, and white stone bench that I enjoyed (bench stolen shortly after your lens click). I have not found similar replacement-but I will. Today is June 7: one day past D-Day. However, Keith's unit, the 35th Division went into Normandy with the "2nd Wave" on July 6, 1944 and continued on across France and The Bulge; ending at Elb River, Germany - greeting the Russians - in May 1945. It was a tough slog. Keith felt Wonderful about having Legion of Honor medal presented to him by French Ambassador in 2006. Keith was a fine representative of The Greatest Generation! I thank you again for the link you provided to Unit History of WWII. I wish you all The Best! Sincerely, Marge B.

Family transfer request
William Rider (114515448) is the brother of my GGrandfather, AJ Rider. I would like to link him with his parents and siblings and was wondering if you'd mind transferring him to my care? Thanks for your consideration. -Bryan Baker (47787669)

Thanks for the great photos you are posting in St. Andrews. I would like to request that you post them in a larger format so that I can open them larger on my screen to read the inscriptions better. I post mine at 4x6 300dpi and never have a problem with them uploading or being able to be expanded and shown for better clarity. Thanks Richard!

Thomas Fitzpatrick (1837-1909) - St. Andrew's Cemetery

Hello Richard,

Thank you for the "head's up" regarding the gravestone photos of Thomas Fitzpatrick (1837-1909). And, that being said, the photos in question were taken by Angela Owens Jando and only Angela can move them to the right 'Find A Grave' memorial.

I have your very own key. Please let me know how you want to get it. I could meet you there or if you are up to hopping the fence, I could put it at your family gravesite.

Girodat transfers

What a pleasure and honor to meet you today!

Among some of the memorials that I have transferred to you are the Girodats in Mt. Calvary. I had a duplication and thought of deleting it however the picture is quite good that is attached. Please let me know what you would like for me to do.
