Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unless I have some way to contact you to verify, I won't make changes to memorial pages.

I got involved with genealogy in 1982 when my parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and wanted a family reunion campout with cousins they hadn't seen for many years. Mother's father was one of 13 children who had been close while growing up, but had drifted apart. My job was to "connect the dots" as to how we were related. As many of you know, it has exploded from there.

I have been a Find a Grave member for several years, but have recently become involved in picture taking. When I get a request, I can't just take that picture, but surrounding ones.
Thank you to those who have taken pictures for me. Let me know if I can help you.
Family names I'm working with are Wallace, Isenberg, Merrell(Merrill), Berry, Scheuffele, Crowley as well as some others.

Can you please transfer the memorials for the Wardell's in Woodland Cemetery to me? William and Isabel are my maternal grandparents. Lewis Leander Wardell is my great grandfather. Thank you very much.

Earle Wilson
Memorial # 87673264

I think that is my grandfather Earle A Wilson (not H)
My uncle Earle A Wilson (Memorial # 87673263) is his son.
A recent addition to the cemetery is my grandmother
(memorial ## 139639700)

Could you please change the H to an A and add references to spouse and son?

Thanks,
Kim

Additional Obit - Fannie Gladys Parmenter
Hi. I hope you don't mind if I send you this additional obit information - it predates your cited obituary by 1 day. I just completed an academic research project and Mrs. Parmenter's obituary was captured during my work. Because of copyright issues, I am unable to send a full transcript.

Obituary published:
The Oregon Statesman (Salem, Oregon) 25 Nov 1942
"Mrs. Fannie Gladys Parmenter"

Mamie Wyckoff/Wykoff
There are two pages for Mamie Wyckoff/Wykoff. One created by Corky C. in 2012 with little information (#88098277) and one by Carrie Bayless Sibley in 2014 with more information and a picture. May I suggest that the two of you make contact and merge the pages?

Error on Date of Death for Douglas Kent Penner
Hi Corky,
There has been a typo on the memorial page for Douglas Kent Penner (Link to page: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=88291959&ref=acom).

You have typed in Death: Sep. 6, 2010 when the actual date (as shown on the headstone photo) is Sep. 26, 2010.

When you can find the time, please fix this to reflect the correct date of death.

Thank you.
