Hi Mr. Cannata - I came across your work on this website regarding my family members. My father was Sherwood Scheim, whose mother was Esther Fishbein. I was wondering if you had any other information about my relatives. Am I related to you? I also might be able to help you fill in some of the missing information. Charlie Scheim

Thanks for checking. I thought so, that's why I didn't send it as an EDIT but asked you directly. Thank You

RE: duplicate
Thanks for letting me know, Ray. Three cemeteries were merged and we're working through it. If you come across any more do me a favor and let me know through the Edit > Other tab.

Philippine Zander
Thanks Ray for your great photo of the Philippine Zander gravestone at Gates of Prayer. It included her birthplace and the Hebrew inscription gave me the name of her father Yehoshua. Good work.

Anne Lemkowitz
Hi! I saw that you entered Anne Lemkowitz to FindaGrave. I'm her first cousin thrice removed (her father was my great-great-grandfather's niece. How are you related? Do you have any more info on this side of my family? I'd be so grateful whatever you can share. Thanks!

RE: Duplicate Memorial - Judith Kait
Yes, with eventually being the key word! I still think some contributors don't even know about the little edit button on their contributor page!

Again, thanks for all your contributions!
