Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've decided to change my profile to reiterate my feelings on transfers, additions, and corrections to the memorials that I manage:

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will now transfer only within the stated guidelines. Please do not ask me to make a bulk transfer of names. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Please consider using the "virtual cemetery" feature on this site to keep track of relations.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Please have your messages enabled if you want to correspond with me. I will not use my personal e-mail on this site.

Nice story. Not to argue, but the website is new just in the last few days. Check it out. Same content, but different styling and some additions, like the history with info on the founders.

RE: Ernest Yocom, Sr.
If you have this grave, go ahead and send him over so I can research him? Thank you.

Have you seen their new website? Same thing basically but new look. However, I see they will take photos of graves for $ and mention that if others want to take photos or have volunteers do it, you must get permission from office. Mmmmmm. Are they getting to be one of 'those' cemeteries?

RE: Margaret & Dale Frick Photo
I'm not sure if they related or not. Margaret is a 1st cousin to my Mom so the Frick is by marriage. Thanks for all you do! Becky

RE: PS re your grandmother . . .
Ah that was easy. I also learned how to take photos similar to you, did you notice the location photo I took of her son Bobby Ray's marker. I really appreciated how you did that with hers.

RE: Bobby Hoover
It's about 2 plus hours from me but I had a job interview that put me in the area so I stopped in and found it. I visited my grandmother Oleta Mildred Southern Hoover grave as well and it was easy to find from the photos you took of her marker.
Thanks again

Hi B J Waters,

I appreciate you accepting my photo request and apologize and feel bad for canceling it. It was because I was too impatient. I want to make sure to show you the respect you deserve. You took the photo of his mothers '79743313' marker for me as well. You are a very unselfish person.

RE: Charles Wise
O.K., I understand. Yes, I will check into the Holdrege, NE cemetery, and also cemeteries in Charles' home town.
Thank you!

RE: Charles Wise
Hello again BJ - thanks for such a quick reply. I was unable to access the website using the URL. Before you make any changes to Mr. Wise's memorial, let me see if I can contact his son, whose name and last known address I have, to see if he has any knowledge of what may have occurred.
I will keep you informed; thanks for your help.
