Swastek Family - St. Hedwig, Dearborn Heights

Your photo request for Mrs. Mary Swastek revealed the following names not included in the Find A Grave database:

Piotr Swastek
1891 - 1951

Jan P. Swastek
1914 - 1970

Upon your origination of the above two memorials, the photos can be added.

Please, advise.

Sincere Regards.

Jim.. I've completed 3 of the 4 requests for Pawlus however your request for Joseph Pawlus appears incorrect... Emily's husband was Stanley A Pawlus 1913-1998...
I also have family photos for:
Louis Pawlus 1889-1983
Frank A Pawlus 1917-2001
Pauline Pawlus 1894-1982
Patricia A Pawlus 1939-1957

Please change Joseph to Stanley and let me know is you create these additional memorials.

Hi Jim,
Find A Grave does not have Rotsraver Twp. in their system. So I just listed the death place as Westmoreland co. PA.

thank you!
Thank you for creating the memorials for my great aunt Dorothy Howe and Uncle Bob. I appreciate the transfer very much.
all the best, Lisa

I think she just over-reacted and I haven't heard any more from her. At least we are now aware of what she's like and gets upset over.

RE: Find A Grave memorial duplicates
It's not just your problem. I try and check before I add a memorial but sometimes create a duplicate because the name may be spelled slightly differently. Sometimes it just happens like when I add a name and two memorials get created. There are just glitches in the system. One of the women who has added memorials to Mt Kelly was very upset about the duplicates and left me a nasty message so I went through them all and think I found the duplicates. Maybe not. We do the best we can.

Mary Margaret Terns Demick
Sorry-I was looking at so many of my relatives that I put down the wrong name-used her mother's maiden name as her married name. This is the person that I was wondering where the middle name of Margaret came from. One of her nieces was a Mary Margaret but I have not found any record where Mary had a middle name-none of her siblings had a middle name either.

Thanks for the prompt response.
