|Bio and Links|
Rest in peace Jacquelyn. It was a long, painful fight.|
I don't link to "Burial Unknown". This isn't your note folder. If you want me to put the names of the parents or spouse in the bio section, send me the name in a suggestion.
Before you send me an 'edit' to link to a spouse, take a moment to see if YOU have the memorial for the spouse. If so . . . why are you sending me that 'edit'? Just link them.
I am on here every day fixing the tens of thousands of memorials entrusted to me my the administration. If you want one, let me know. If you see some stupid message left in the note area about only updating the memorial if someone asks; that's not my work. You have found a memorial I haven't gotten to yet. If you have something constructive to add, use the 'edit' tab and let me know. Otherwise, it'll still be there when I get to it.
If you discover someone has transferred a duplicate to you, I can get that taken care of if you transfer that duplicate to me.
I don't, knowingly, put the names of living people on memorials. If you see something I missed, please let me know so I can delete it. If you are composing an email to me with all the names of the living descendants you want me to put in the bio of a memorial, including your own name, save us both some time . . you to write it; me to read it and delete it.
I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friend's memorial.
I like to look up additional info. for other people's memorials. More folks should hop off the 'flower' button and hop on a death index or the census, and send some 'edit's, to actually improve more memorials on the site.
Some free sites I find helpful:
CA birth index 1905-1995
CA death records 1905-1939
CA death records 1940-1997
Italian Cemetery records
San Francisco Mortuary index
ADDING A LINK IN THE BIO
If you want to add a link to another memorial in the bio of a memorial copy&paste this in the bio;
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=Put Memorial Number Here">Put Name Here< /a>
You will need to remove the space between < and a at the beginning as well as the space between the < and / at the end. The spaces were added here to actually show you the code. Then replace "Put Memorial Number Here" with the memorial number you want to make a link to. Replace "Put Name Here" with the name you want to be in blue as the link.
On 28 JUL 2013 I was blessed to receive almost 45,000 abandoned memorials to work on in Italian Cemetery in Colma, CA.
I want to thank all the photographers out there getting headstone photos on memorials so the rest of us can sit on the couch and 'visit' our relatives. You may never know just how grateful we are.
OH WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THOSE LAST NAMES OF A DISCIPLE OF ELIZABETH TAYLOR -
You want to acknowledge all the marriages, but you don't want a crappy looking memorial with 6 last names crammed into the maiden and/or last name space.
Find A Grave suggests;
The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' space is only for her maiden name.

|Allen Stewart||Crocker/Lessley Cemetery|
I am a direct descendent of Barnett and Charity Arthur Crawford, who are buried in this cemetery and which I've visited. There are duplicate entries for almost all graves under the two names, Crocker Cemetery and Lessley Cemetery, that this place is known by. Since you appear to have your hands full, if you want to transfer both cemeteries to me, I would be honored to take care of combining the two into one. If not, I'll keep sending you suggested revisions and links, but only for those listed under Lessley Cemetery, since that is its official name.
All the best, Allen Stewart

Hello my name is Francisco Collins and I am Frances Collins great grandson. Do you know anything about her?
|Denise Enright||RE: Gloria Cartusciello born about 1926|
Hey there Samantha, Well,then Amelia's daughter Gloria would be by grandfather(Alfred's) 1/2 sister. I get that. What I can't wrap my head around is what relation is Gloria would be to my dad( Alfred's son) born 5 years later in 1931. Crazier still is that we all lived in the same part of San Francisco, called the Avenues or Sunset District--Amelia lived on 44th Ave and Alfred lived on 33rd Ave. Same parish, same market, ect...Thank you for all of your time researching, you have been a tremendeous help to me. Goodnight Denise Passeri
|Denise Enright||RE: oh he was here all the time|
OMG, Thank you for doing this, as I am sure you have so many other people to attend to and I feel honored you took the time to research promptly. I wasn't aware of Amelia's daugher Gloria. Was she a Passeri or Cartsuciello? I do not Amelia's maiden name, as if had that I could do more sluthing on my own. No, It wasn't amicable divorce.. Enrico took the 2 boys- Guido and Alfred to Sasoferrato, Italy for about 8-9 years and then came back to Eyenon, PA. Sincerely, for what you have done. Denise Passeri
|Denise Enright||RE: Your message on my wall|
Hey there Samamtha, Thank you for your prompt reply regarding my long lost great grandmother- Amelia(remarried name ) Cartusciello.
Enrico Passeri is buried at the same Italian Cemetary in Colma, San Mateo County
#44411203.. My family tree stops on my dad's side with Ameila(my great grandmother) - no maiden name- Married my great grandpa- divorced(? not sure) and remarried surname of name Cartusciello- so can't trace her parents to Italy. Thank you again, Sincerely Denise Passeri
|Denise Enright||Amelia Cartusciello prior marriage|
Hey There Samantha,
I am presenty looking for any information on Amelia Cartusciello in your data base, as she IS my long lost great grandmother. She was married to Enrico Passeri, my great grandfather. She left him in Eynon, PA with 2 young boys(one being my grandfather), and married Michael Cartusciello, moved to Southern CA and had a new life. I only know my great grand father took both young boys to Italy to raise them there and returned to Eynon, PA in 1929. Thank you Sincerely, Denise Passeri
