Bio and Links
To whom it may concern, my bio is my bio, I have been a findagrave member for quite a few years. I am not a name collector like others, but I am territorial and would like to be able to place memorials up for people in my area (Ashland, Fountain Springs, Gordon, Girardville, Lavelle, Locustdale)that are in the local newspapers and funeral home websites, but alas I can't, someone from far away keeps putting them up.

If you are going to put memorials up and if the info is provided in the obit (aka-bio), please enter it. Don't just leave the places born & died blank because it is quicker for you to enter them and grab them before someone else does.
Do it correctly or don't do it at all.

I know my area (North of the mountain) of Schuylkill county very well and what I don't know I make sure to find out.

And UPDATE, UPDATE, I am slowly but surely adding cemmie records for a certain cemetery in my area, I have the letters A, B,C,D,E,F,& G done so far.
I have also transcribed the St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Middleport, Pennsylvania
Helped with Odd Fellows in Girardville; St Joseph's (Old & New), Ashland; and St Mauritius (Old & New), also Ashland. Sts Peter & Paul, Port Carbon. With more to come as time & weather permits. Upcoming Citizens Cemetery, Lavelle.
Big Thanks to fellow deceased Findagraver- Keith McKain, for entering all the pictures and memorials that you did for me.
If it were not for you entering them for me, those 2700 plus memorials in Schuylkill co area wouldn't be up there now and Big Thanks to FAG, for turning them over to me to maintain.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber, whose numerous memorials I also manage.

RE: Agree
Sounds exactly like a lady here in my own area. Take care :)

I so agree with you where you wrote in your bio about people who list those who have passed on before obtaining all the information for the sake of numbers of memorials they add. I have had the same experience where I have to actually jump, lickety-split, on adding my own son's memorial before a certain person in my area jumped on it. Best of luck to you on your site.

Hostetter family
I am not sure if you are a family member of the Hostetter's, but I have added Ann Kerner Hostetter Logan's son Carl to Find A Grave.

If you are collecting the family, let me know and i will gladly transfer it to you.

I have deleted my memorial as you requested. I am not a name grabber, or numbers person as you eluded to, I just do not want folks like this to go without a memorial. I have to say I did not appreciate your remarks, you, no more than I, own any of these cemeteries or the memorials, we are only the care takers for their families, at least that is how I feel about it. The more people walking these cemeteries, the better, so no one goes unnoticed.
