I'm caught up on auto-edits to 4/15 and email edits to about 4/15.
FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have an incorrect date without providing a correct date - requiring me to research). I'll get to them eventually but I process the change requests where the submitter has already done the research first. I get a tremendous amount of change requests...
I transfer memorials liberally - just ask. If you want all of a particular last name in a cemetery to take on as a personal project or if you want everyone in the same plot, I can do that too (as long as they are my memorials). I have plot information for most, not all, of my memorials. I've rethought this and have decided not to make out-of-guideline transfers to members who insist on guideline only transfers when transferring their own memorials to which they have no relation.
Thank you for all of the corrections.
Newer published obituaries (after 1922) should not be transcribed to avoid copyright infringement - Instead, reference the obituary so others can find it; update the memorial as appropriate with information found; omit names of people who are possibly still living. I won't post a word for word obituary that could be copyright protected. A summary is perfectly fine.
Please don't leave change or transfer requests on my message board. It's extremely difficult to keep up with these types of requests and I miss most of them. Requests should be made with the edit button on the memorial
Looking for someone interested in translating Latvian historical records.

Mary Ellen Serna # 87618441 Hello, Mary was the 2nd wife of my great uncle Edward John Serna# 87618440. His first wife was Isabella R Paterson Serna # 161663148 She is also in Cypress Lawn in the crypts. Would you be interested in transfering Mary's memorial to me? I would gladly take it. Do you know anything else about Mary and Edward. They were married 1930. My aunt Isabella died in 1920. If you have anymore info please send it to me. Thank you Suzanne Purves Perkins GalaLass (#47454107)
Lucy Park Hello Graves. Lucy Moffit Lynch Park was born 9/1/1930 in Ridgefield, CT. You can find her on Ancestry, but I also have this listed in personal notes taken by my mother. Lucy is a second cousin once removed to me, and a second cousin to my mother. Best, Alexandra
86071860 Not the Mary Hornick, my great-grandmother, who was married to Frank X. Hornick until he died in 1927. That was Mary Ann Zettl Hornick -- my GGF was not married to two Marys at the same time, esp. one who apparently married a Frank Latz in 1892! So dump this Mary but keep Mary Ann Zettl with Frank X.
