Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all.
I am the Volunteer Admin for Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati Ohio.
I am the caretaker of all AUTOGRAVR records. I am NOT autogravr. We are trying to fix them with a wonderful group of volunteers. The records are in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati Ohio and Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland. There are roughly 270,000. Many of the "wrong" dates were entered by the Autogravr program and have to be fixed by hand.

Threatening messages will simply be unanswered by me and sent to . I no longer will interact with bad mannered people.

I work on this Working weekdays M thru F. I try to turn changes and other requests around in 48-72 hours. Weekends and Holidays are excluded.I do not guarantee this turn around but I do my best.

Please use the drop down menus in the EDIT process to send dates, places of birth/death, marker transcriptions, family links, plots, GPS.
I run the update process roughly 2 to 3 times a day. Again, weekends and Holidays are excluded. Please note that I will no longer enter the above data even if you ask. I enter Bios and Notes only.

Use this method also for single and mass transfers. Just select one of the memorials you want transferred and put all the information using the "Other" menu selection.

Transfers are being made in the order received. I do have my volunteers out there making changes. If you request a transfer in a lot that is being worked, your transfer will be held up until memorial is complete. I may ask for proof or other substantiation if I suspect record collection.

The URL on the autogravr spring grove records is being removed. I will leave the interment id but no URL's. The Interment id is the ONLY way I have of communicating with the Spring Grove Foundation to correct problems on My response to email telling me that the URL doesn't work or isn't permitted, not per Find A Grave Guidelines, etc ,will be "
Please read my profile for information on the URL". I get too many of these to constantly send out the same information so I put it on my profile. its just easier. The URL hasn't worked in what is going on 5 years. I DID NOT PUT IT OUT THERE. THE AUTOGRAVR PROGRAM DID. There are over 200,000 records so please be patient. YOU WILL GET A 404 error if you use the link.
If you are using as your source, please let me know if there are discrepancies between the burial information, the index list and/or the marker. I can get many changes done by The Spring Grove Foundation but I can't catch them all. Thanks for the help. Please use the "other" menu option in the Edit tab process to send these messages

The autogravr program created all kinds of duplicates. If you have one let me know. just pick one of the duplicates and send the info via the edit tab process "other" menu.

We are finding as many as we can but aren't able to find all of them. Make sure I am the manager on one of them. I can't submit a merge otherwise.

I have to merge duplicates with the original good record. I have no choice. I don't like this solution but is giving me no alternative. I can't delete autogravr records directly because I'm not the original owner.
We do allow dates on markers to overrule the burial records however inaccurate they may be because people send me changes complaining that the memorial dates and marker dates don't match.
I will read Obituaries sent to me and I will put the text in the bio if short. Please provide the text for long obits. I will not accept links to other websites , census dumps, birth certificate dumps, death certificate dumps or any other input. (I know that doesn't want this but obits are a great source of family info)

Please be aware that on memorials that haven't been fixed yet, the year of death may be wrong. This is because the autogravr program put the last year known which is the interment year. This is not always equal to the death year.
All records for all burials prior to October 22, 2011 in Lake view Cemetery, Cleveland OH and Spring Grove Cemetery are for the most part already added. Please do not add any records for burials for those dates until you've checked to see if they already exist. Ask if you can not find them.

I'm the daughter of Alfred C. and Mary Virginia Prout Berndsen. They are buried in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati OH which I take care of for FindaGrave. My husband Ken is the son of George and Ann Marie Brinza Jacko.

I have added relatives from Wendelman. Papner, Berndsen, Dohme, Prout, Fitzpatrick, Wessel (a family history I'm struggling with at the moment) and others from my mother's side of the family. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio originally.

My husband's family are the Brinzas (Brindzas), Jackos.

I have added records of persons that are in my family or related to them or at least I know something about them. As I find factual information I try to add it. I do check to make sure someone else hasn't done this already.

I am a musician, gardener, photographer, I am reading Christian, Hindu and Buddhist literature and devotional reading as well as mystery fiction. I'm also active in dog rescue organizations.
It's important to remember people in your past because this website may be the only record that they existed. Every life deserves recognition and respect.

RE: Hannah Kies
Cross-referencing works for me. Thanks!

i will add to the inscription section the date her body was moved to Lake View (for just the Woodland record, as a Woodland database had it.)

(The bodies of two Kies children were also moved to Lake View around the same date)
