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,H,I,J, & L 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 & Robert Miller, whose numerous memorials I also manage.

Joseph Eslick's memorial

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I re-entered his place of death. It isn't in Gloucester County, however. It is in Camden County. That's where Voorhees is. It's not even listed as Voorhees, but VOORHEES TWP.

I can't imagine what happened to this poor child. To me, when a child dies, that's the saddest thing that can happen.

Take care.

Joseph Eslick's memorial
Hi Joanne: I went into Joseph Eslick's memorial to enter the information you provided.
I noticed that you have his birth place in Voorhees, Somerset County, NJ.
There is also a Voorhees, Gloucester County and I wonder if that's the Voorhees in which he was born.
Can you check that for me?

Thanks for adding the information I sent you for Adam Vernalis. I'm working on adding as much information as I have on him and his family members to their Memorials and then linking them all to each other. Thanks for helping me work toward my goal.

RE: Muhammad
I have always put the newspapers name, date and page number on some of them, to give them credit for it, never had a problem yet :--) Most of those I work with on Find A Grave do the same. Or sometimes I will put the obit on as a photo, it all depends :--) Thank you for the advice too, might be different for "famous" people. :-)

Hello...first of all, let me say how happy I am that you are taking photographs of headstones and adding memorials at Brock Cemetery. My family originated in Ashland. I visited Wilkes Barre and explored that area before I knew about the connection to Ashland and I am so sorry that I missed going there. I was hoping you might consider transferring memorial 140761129 to me...Christiana was the daughter of Henry and Lizzie Lentz before marrying Albert. Henry is my great uncle. I am trying to locate the Lentzes and am going to a Lentz family reunion this weekend hoping to learn more. Thank you so very much for your service to Find A Grave. I am also a volunteer and enjoy the work so much!
