Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you want to do anything with any records I have created feel free to have me transfer them to you, or feel free to send additions or corrections to me and I will add them. Either way is great. (If I don't take action after a week or so, or if I miss something, feel free to ask again. I try, sort of, to keep up, but something will likely slip through)

An interest in genealogy, local history, and the fact that you can put together in one place a lot of information that is searchable and freely available drew me to this site.

Ancestor and cousin surnames that I have researched include Bollman, Sullivan, Michea, Swift, Mitchell, Row(Rowe), Hoffses, Gronski, Fleischer, Winchenbach, Kramer, Creamer, Riley, O'Neil, O'Dowd, Hatch, King, Kaler, Waxler.

NEWS: Dec. 2013 - Every member's main page now has an "Edits" tab, which is at the top, to the left of "Contributor Tools". It alerts you to any edits pending and has a drop down box!! Check it out. It's clickable even if it's not highlighted. For more info. see the FAQ's or head to the Forums.

In light of the above when you click the edit tab you need to enter the information at the link provided specifically for that information as this will enter it into the automated update process which allows the recipient to click on "approve" without reentering it. Only use the "suggest any other correction or addition" option when there is no alternative way provided of entering the information.

This is 3rd request asking for her transfer to me if you are not related in any way. I've had no reply from you. Lela was my mother's very best friend when we lived in Dallas, OR at the time I was born there . . . would love to add further info to her memorial page and take over ownership. Thanks.

RE: Martin Davis 5347352
I've been working Mt Pleasant section by section to try and reduce the number of open requests. While I have picked up many, many unphotographed stones, and have added many, many more new memorials, I have only filled two open requests. I'm not sure what section I was working in October when I posted the photo, but if there were more Davis stones, I would have posted them. Wish I could be of more help.

RE: Waxler
So far I don't see a Georgeanne Waxler in my family tree, but she may still be lurking on a branch...

RE: Pictures you posted
Hi David-- Thanks for your message! No I don't know Georgie Ann Geyer--wish I did! Would love to know more of the Waxler/Bollman line. The Waxlers are direct relatives of mine. Glad you enjoyed the photos!
