Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist, living in Dublin, Ireland.

I am particularly interested in the Pigott and Edgeworth families of Ireland and their descendants.
The graves of Irishmen who fought in WW1 & WW2 are also of interest.

"Forget the dead you've left,
they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"
Taken from
"It's all over now, Baby Blue" - Bob Dylan.

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

You kept your promise! Thank you for doing the grave photo showing a commemoration to his grand-daughter.

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."

Drishane Graveyard
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

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.

RE: The Weir Family in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow

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

Hi John,

Would you consider giving credit to the Bomber County Aviation Resource? This site is devoted to recording All Things Aviation in Lincolnshire.
