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.

RE: Knittle question
The sibling information I sent you was for Kenneth Knittle. They are his brothers and sisters. They are all buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Frackville, PA except for Grace Knittle Bretz (who is my Mother) is buried in Forest Hills Memorial Park, Reading, PA. There are memorials on "Find a Grave" for all of his siblings that are buried in Odd Fellows Cemetery. I visited Odd Fellows Cemetery on Friday, May 27th but could not find the grave for Kenneth Knittle or his wife Shirley who are my uncle and aunt.

William Logar
Thank you so much for the edits. Are you related and know more of the family? I am not at all, but was in The Swecker cemetery last summer To get a great aunt's grave photo and took the Logars also. I am attempting to get all I can on Findagrave for their family.

Could you please transfer Dominic Augustine #101556946. He was my Great Grandfather and his name is actually Di'Augustino. There is also a missing daughter Julia Carson that is not mentioned and two other sons. You can see his daughters Maria Carmella DelDuco's Find A Grave #101101393, which I care for.

Also Columba Augustine's # 101557136 I would like to have transferred, she is my Great Grandmother.

My name is DonnaMarie Leoni Passaro # 4778726. I have been taking care of my other family members for four years.

Thank you,
DonnaMarie Leoni Passaro
