Bio Photo WINTER 2016 MESSAGE:
We recently moved to Salem, Oregon, so are behind on our edits. But we will get to yours as soon as we can! Sorry for any delay.
My husband and I enjoy finding monuments for other people and am extremely grateful to the volunteers who have found my own people for me. We've been working on finding the little pioneer cemeteries in the area and putting their inhabitants online. Four of our memorial pages even helped to catch a gravestone thief. Cemeteries are extremely vulnerable to vandalism, theft, and the damage of time and weather. We appreciate all of the volunteers out there who are working so hard to document them before they are lost to history.

I'm not a numbers addict or collector, but I adhere to Findagrave policy:

◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website.

◊Find A Grave's secondary purpose is a memorialization/remembrance site.

◊Find A Grave's tertiary purpose is a genealogical resource.

Transfers are only made within the guidelines set up by Find A Grave. These guidelines are in place for a reason - whether one cares to accept them or not. I am not going to debate what the owner has deemed acceptable for his site with members who choose not to agree with the guidelines. "The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I am willing to consider transferring ownership to you if you have a close family member among my records. I rarely transfer relationships more distant than first cousin... just having someone "in my family tree" or "a relative" will not elicit a transfer.

If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "Edit" tab to send me the information-- including family links. I will add information to the memorial, I do not transfer just because someone wants to add links or other information. Bottom line: what are you planning on doing with the entry that I haven't already done or am unable to do?

On the other hand, if you upload family photos or in some other way add value to the memorial, I am much more willing to transfer. I will always transfer a memorial if you sponsor it.

I welcome all corrections to my own work. Some records were imported using OCR so have inevitable errors, both from the original records and from machine interpretation. I am only human and make mistakes, too, but will always make it priority to correct them.

RE: Dreisbach photos
You are welcome. I have been slowly working on the memorials you transferred to me and linking the families. Looking forward to it warming up again here and getting outside. Hope you have a wonderful month of May.

Memorial 7447082, could you please remove the top photo of his grave site? I have a picture of him to post and there is no more room for pictures because several people uploaded the same pictures and your first shot of his marker is great, so that would help so I don't have to pay to sponsor it to post his picture :--) Thanks so much , Lisa

Allen Union Cemetery in Northampton, PA

I wondered if you have any contact information for the Allen Union Cemetery in Northampton, PA? I noticed a number of memorials for my ancestors in that cemetery that you put up.

I'm specifically looking for the Nagle Family.

William R. Nagle (1867-1925)
Mary (Snyder) Nagle (1864-1912)
Mamie Nagle (1892-1910)
Helen Nagle (1889-1910)
Clarence Nagle (1886-1967)

Mary & Mamie's death certificates show them buried in Allen Union, but there's no memorial for them here, nor have I been able to positively confirm that.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
