Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for almost 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

RE: John & Irene Edgar @ New Garden / Delta
Your welcome, I'm glad I could help. I like volunteering to take pictures. Its a way I can "pay it forward" for the people who have done it for me.

You are very welcome! I put Muriel's photo on. I believe they may have a daughter & grandson in this plot with them. If you are interested in them let me know. Carla :)

RE: Frank & Anabel Generou @ Forest Home
no sense in taking the picture if you can't read it. Right. You most welcome.

RE: Marler/Mershon @ Sacramento Valley National Cemetery
My thanks to you for the edits! I try to research everyone I create a memorial for but sometimes I just don't find anything. If Betty is part of your family tree, please don't hesitate to request a transfer for her and Robert.
Thanks, again! Dee

If you would like Zelma or any other relatives, please feel free to ask. I love to see family go to family where they belong.

Thank you for your kindness. It is a joint effort on Find A Grave when people help by updating memorials.
