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: Roy Smith & Thelma Kiehl
It would be nice if you could tell me your connection to these people. You ask a lot of questions but I don't know who you are.

RE: Roy Smith & Thelma Kiehl
Joanne, I only know that Roy Smith died in 1990. I have only identified one child for them: Roy, Jr. The couple divorced sometime in the 1930s. She used her maiden name in the 1930 census. Thelma remarried to Albert Wallis Fisher on May 13, 1936. Thelma and Albert had two children: Nancy and Albert.

RE: Updates
You're welcome; and I agree.

Whenever I edited the old way, I left a thank you and note giving the sender credit for their research (at the bottom of the bio field).

With the new method I don't leave the kudos like I should. (Mostly because I try to verify the new information before processing it.)

Have another great day,

I agree
Just want to say I agree with what you said in your bio about getting it right.

Thanks for the correction. I was wondering if I had the right cemetery. Thanks for the parental connections, too!

Thank you for the transfer. Our 103rd Singley family reunion will be held at that cemetery/church on Aug. 23. I'll see if a headstone has been placed yet.
