Bio and Links
I really enjoy helping out others find their families as some other volunteers helped me. Also I can't see making a trip to a cemetery to find one or two relatives and not documenting as many graves as I can.

But PLEASE don't ask for transfers if they are not your direct relatives. Uncles, aunts, cousins are not direct relatives.

Any corrections are welcome. My eyes are not what they use to be!

And hopefully all the many, many additional information requests are for your relatives only. I'm the one doing the leg work, sometimes in dangerous neighborhoods. I'm in my mid-60's I can't run too fast anymore so the thought of someone sitting in front of the computer researching other people's relatives without being asked kind of irks me. If you want to document others relatives, by all means get out there with a camera and start walking the cemeteries and submit them to Find A Grave!

And I definitely will not change dates or spellings of what is on a gravestone. If there is a mistake I will, however, put it in the notes section.

RE: Fred Hartwig
I understand. I am young, and was with an elderly man who photographs with me. but we had help from one of the groundsmen so it wasnt scary. I walked the same section you did so I wasnt able to add too many new names to the database.

RE: Fred Hartwig
You're welcome. i went to Gethsemane yesterday with a friend of mine from F-A-grave to photograph as there are 114 requests. we didnt find too many people and i just started to photograph stones and didnt realize that you had already taken 90% of the ones that i did! so I was looking up people so that i dont add duplicates, and thats how i saw your duplicate.

do you go there often and have you photographed the entire cemetery?

Ferdinand Wollens
Ferdinand Wollens (originally Wollenschlager) and wife Bertha first lived in Ottawa, Ontario after leaving Pomerania, Germany. I have in my possession a family portrait of Ferdinand and Bertha with their first child. Ferdinand's four brothers and one sister all stayed in Ottawa. I would enjoy sharing information on this family, including several photographs.

Re: Marietta Conway Fitzgerald
Hi-I am ancestrally related to Marietta Conway Fitzgerald #70154614. She was married to my great Uncle Gerald H. Fitzgerald and he is buried in Mt Elliott-as Marietta passed 30 yrs before him. Can you please edit her memorial to show she married Gerald H Fitzgerald 7 Nov 1917? Thank you for your time-I have much to add to his gravesite also.
