I do this for those interested in genealogy.|
I thought it a sad day, March 18, 2014 when a Cemetery (Pennsylvania) said I had to have a notarized letter from the families to take photos of tombstones.
It is a far worse day when I read the Find A Grave Complaints and people are so worried about 'privacy'. I deleted 410 memorials and transferred ten to others. This chunk of history is lost forever.
I will restore some of the memorials that I have taken down, only if a family member's request.
This privacy nonsense is bull crap.

|RiverFallsHistory||RE: Thank you|
Can't help you there, but I've got a lot of notes on the family ties and general notes on most of the Beardsley family that came to Pierce County in its early years and knew he was connected to them, so that's why I did the edit.
|RiverFallsHistory||RE: Thank you|
I've been doing lots of editing, so I'm not clear who your great uncle is, but glad to be of help.
It was a very sad day Tuesday (March 18, 2014) when a local cemetery(Pennsylvania)told me it was an invasion of privacy for me to take photographs of tombstones. I would have to have a notarized letter from the family before taking any more photos at this cemetery. I took down 182 photos off of Find A Grave.
How in the world can taking pictures @ a cemetery be considered "an invasion of privacy" ??? If that is the case,then Id love to know just who it is that pays the taxes, pays the employees for the maintenance etc...
We to was told pretty much the same thing out here in South Dakota but in our case,we was told the cemetery itself was private property etc.
After a little bit of investigating & a lot of phone calls later....we the tax payers "own" the cemetery.Granted,there are "private family"
cemetery's that would prefer NOT to have their loved one's stones on this site & so yes,I respect that but in my humble little opinion,this place that told you the above was way out of line...Geesh !!!
BTW : Was this by any chance a Amish cemetery ?
|Mary Ann||Roscoe Jack Johnson Jr's Photo request|
I read your biography on Roscoe. How sad that he was homeless. I looked up his pertinent information on the national gravesite locator and I submitted several edits for him based on the information registered on this there. I will try to get a photo but don't know if I'll be successful. Several markers in that section are installed, several are not. I don't know if his permanent marker has been installed or not. Also, I try to take close up and distant photos and don't know if I can the distant photos but I will try. This section has new burials and could be muddy.

I just happened to notice that you left virtual flowers on these memorials and wondered if you were a relative?

|Jessica DiCarlo||More about your uncle|
Thanks for telling me about your aunt. I could go on and on about how much he meant to me. I don't know why exactly, but he was so kind and patient, explaining whichever part of my piano he was working on when I visited. I'll never forget how he cut all the leather for the bellows, each one punched by hand. I guess there were 88 of those. I could have stayed with him for hours, listening to him talk.
I regret not spending more time with him, but am glad that when I was in college, I wrote a story about him for one of my classes. He was kind enough to let me interview him several times. Would you like me to send the story to you? Your aunt might particularly enjoy hearing it. I'm almost positive that I know where it is and will send it to you and your aunt if you like. If she would enjoy getting a letter in the mail, I would be very happy to send it to her if you give me her address.
I'm so happy that I wrote to you. I was very sad when I heard that your uncle passed away, so I'm glad that I can at least tell his family how much I miss him.
|Jessica DiCarlo||Albert Constable, the piano tuner?|
Hi Mrs. Pasqua,
My name is Jessica DiCarlo. Is your Uncle Albert the same Albert Constable from Penn-Craft who tuned and refinished pianos and pipe organs?
I grew up in Ralph, the daughter of Vincent and Sonja DiCarlo. My mother still lives there.
Mr. Constable refinished my piano around 1982, and I visited him many times in his shop. He also made house calls to tune the piano many times. I think about him a lot and wish that I spent more time learning about his trade.
Please let me know if your uncle is the same Mr. Constable that I remember. I would like to visit his grave the next time I'm in Uniontown.
Thanks so much!
