Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! To begin, I am a LADY. Confusing first name.
On this website I am attempting to enter information from the west side of Iron County, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula, where I live. It's BEAUTIFUL here, with forests, lakes, hills, and rivers. The history of the area comes alive for me as I work on this.
I also am entering information from my own family tree and my husband's. We have 5 young adult children and one grandchild, and I'd like to preserve the family tree information for them.
I am a retired High School Librarian, so researching and recording this information is pretty thrilling & natural for me!

Deborah Rioux
Error on Paul N. Minckler #7344793

My name is Deborah Rioux, the great-granddaughter of Flossie Minckler Mason, who is the daughter of Paul Minckler. I had asked you to make an edit on my great-aunt, Irene Minckler Dorris' memorial page by linking her to her father, Paul, which was done. Thank you. However, you typed an extra paragraph on Paul's memorial page which needs correction. You wrote the following:

INFORMATION FROM RELATIVE great-great granddaughter Deborah Rioux ( whose great-grandmother Emma Irene Minckler Dorris was Paul Minckler's daughter

Please correct it to say that my great-grandmother is Flossie Minckler Mason instead of Emma Irene, because Emma Irene (she went by "Irene"), is my great-aunt.

Thank you for your assistance.

Witt family Tawas, Michigan
Hello Dale: Thank you for the heads up on the Witt family. I just haven't had time to get back to them. Today, I added information to their memorials and linked their family members together. I added more information than your edits, so they will come back to you as declined but just ignored them. Thank you for taking the time to send me the information.

Margery Coe memorial
Did you send me an obit on her? There is none on her memorial. I received the reference you send which I was going to add but there is no obit. I usually enter things that I receive right away so wondering if I missed this one?

> Duplicate of memorial #46590702 which shows unknown burial but is otherwise a very complete account. Something should be done about the duplication.

Memorial #46590702 appears to have been deleted.

You have added many photos (and grateful) in Lakeside Cemetery for Monticelli's. You have added a note advising that there are separate headstones labeled Monticello. I was wondering if you have photo's of the Monticello stones.

I communicated with Linda but she suggested contacting you as you posted the info.

I have info on him to add shortly but would ask that you check his middle name. Everything I have shows no middle name but his son definitely had William as a middle name but never with the designate "Jr." I think it's possibly confusion between the two.
