Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for over 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)

Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).

I share with many the firm belief that we are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them. As another member so eloquently stated, the ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. Please use the Edit tab.

You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.

Enjoy, Joe

I took the liberty of transferring this memorial to you as you clearly know about her.
I hope that is cool. I just too the marker pic.
Have a good day!

RE: Slawson & Heaverlo @ Whitesville Cemetery
Thank you, but all that I did was to process the edits that were submitted to me. I always try to process them within a couple of days.

I like what you say on your profile page. I agree whole-heartedly. We are merely the caretakers of memorials that we enter and any information on the memorial should be as meaningful and informative as possible. I have discovered the burial location of so many of my own relatives through the efforts of others. I hope that the memorials I have entered have been a blessing for others searching for the final resting place of their loved ones.
