Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've no problem with the use of my photographs for your own purpose's but please be kind and ask first. My wife and I put in a lot of hours for "our projects" and each and every one is important to us.
As for transfers please see Find-a-Grave rules for all transfer requests. I am very willing to add information that you have on individuals.
My final "request" is a statement, I am in a wheelchair while taking these photographs, any constructive criticism is appreciated, however; any statements that are not will be handled appropriately.

Thank you!
All the work you two have done has been so helpful with making pieces of my puzzle come together! I would like your permission to use photos you've taken in my family tree with proper credit given, (of course)? Thanks again :) RC

Sorry, I hadn't read the caption on the marker photo when I left that message.

Are you by chance related to John Ritso? I saw that you posted a picture of his marker, which I assume means you visited the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery.

Since John and my father both served in Company B of the 601st TDBN, there is a very good chance they knew each other.

If you're looking for other members of the 601st, please see my virtual cemetery for members of the 601st. It isn't complete, but I'm working on it.

Dan by any chance are you descended from one of the Taunton Briggs' brothers, ie Hugh, Richard and William? If so we are blood cousins ... distant but still linked. I also am a descendant of them through Richard.

Christina Weiss, Memorial #111019551
Some extra information for her memorial --
Christina was my great-great-grandmother and her maiden name was Fauser. My great-great grandparents were both born in Wurtenburg/Baden, Germany. George immigrated to Chautauqua county, New York in 1854 and Christina followed the next year, in 1855.

Thank you for creating their memorials.

Wow you did your relative honor. Terry would have been very happy to have you to complete the memorial. I am sure he is smiling down on you.
Many thanks.

RE: Confused
Ok Dan, I Have it all sorted out now. Not a problem at all, we're all only human. I think can get family members linked up after yours is deleted.
Thanks :) RC

RE: Confused
Hi Dan,
No need to apologize. I was actually thinking that if you were using cemetery records that your memorial would be the correct one. I know when I take pictures at the cemeteries near me I get OCD about 'ok, which one was I at today??' So do you use cem ledgers? I don't want to be too quick to merge and delete what could be the wrong one. Thanks! RC

I received transfer of a family member this week (with marker photo) and just realized there is a duplicate that you hold for him as well (with more info added). The odd thing is that each is in a different cemetery? Are Pioneer and Forestville the same cemetery? I can't seem to figure it out.
Here's the one you have: #11437398
the one I have: #39404367
What do you make of it?
Thank you :)
