Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always had interest in old cemeteries. As a young girl I had recorded all the names in a local cemetery into a notebook. I assumed it was thrown away, when I moved from home. Since then, my military & family life had taken up most of my time. Now that I'm retired, genealogy research led me to FAG and now another interest had taken over my life, just kidding. I belong to a local historical association and one of our duties were to record all the names in our parish's cemeteries. I have so many interests/hobbies there's not enough time in the day it seems like.

RE: SELA Veterans Cemetery
Hi Judie,

Thank you for your nice note. I just noticed that it needed some catching-up. Will you be able to keep an eye on it now that is is all caught-up? If you could, that would be wonderful!

Warm regards,

I was checking into the duplicates and so far I have found several created by someone AFTER I created mine. That person will have to be contacted in order to delete it and I have done that.
I don't have time right now to go through 800+ memorials, so I will get to it bit by bit.
Also, another thing I remembered, was at one time they had a problem with 2 cemeteries with the same info. One was called Zion and the other was Old Zion. Maybe they were merged? I did go to check that there is only one Zion church and the sign out front reads Old Zion.
I will be working on correcting what I can and help clean up any mess I may have inadvertently made.
Thanks for your help.

You had left me a message about the above memorial and mentioned that it and many others were duplicates.
True, mine are added later, but if you notice, many people have left changes and additional information to the ones I made. Many times that is because the person who initially made the memorial (that mine is a copy of) can either no longer be contacted or does not answer or make changes that are requested of their page. So, the changes and additions that are requested of me, I make them while the original page remains unchanged for years on end.
As far as I know, you have to contact the person who created the memorial in order to delete it. If they are not answering for whatever reason, it will remain on f.a.g.
If there is anything I can do to correct this, I would and if you have any suggestions as to what I can do, please let me know. I would just feel badly if I deleted mine and all the additional information that is on the memorials I created lost to someone who would have liked to have known it.
Thank you for your input. I do welcome it.

RE: Steve Bauman
Hi Judie,

You're most welcome. Thank you for your graciousness. I share your love of metal detecting, as I used to go gold prospecting in Arizona. Now I moved back to North Dakota, so there's not as many opportunities. I really miss it, although it was a huge amount of work. I felt like a packmule! I also used to detect with a Garrett and others.

Have a great Spring!

Kind regards,

Steve Bauman
Debbie, just want to thank you for the photos of Steve's headstone. I do very much appreciate it. Yesterday was Steve's wife birthday. Also, Steve better known as "Lawson51" as he & I both were moderators on a metal detecting forum, but Steve's biggest love was for Indian artifacts...he had a vast knowledge of all the tools made by Indians.

Thanks again!

RE: Blais
Hi Judie, This is sometimes more difficult than it seems on the surface. I found another obit with the deceased to be buried at Louisiana National Cemetery (and he wasn't there); so I did a cold search on him (before I made the entry at LA National) and found him with a memorial and tombstone pic at St. Margaret's cemetery (Albany, I think). So, we just do the best we can, and hope everything eventually gets straightened out. It's important that we all (volunteers) work together. thanks
