FLOWERS,
from the faqs: Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower.


CHALKING STONES.

It has a name .... "VANDALISM" and it is a crime of which you can be charged.

So someone comes to your house and chalks the numbers so they can better read them OR
Someone chalks your vehicles licence plates because they are old and barely readable. OR
Someone thinks it's great to chalk your neighbours house with graffiti
OR....Well you get the picture.
=====================================

ESTIMATED BIRTH YEARS
Often I will not accept them unless the age at death is in both yr and at least month.
I will put age at death as it appears on the stone until further information like birth certificate can be sourced.
Don't assume just subtracting age from death year will be accurate.

Benefit of a doubt will be given for January deaths( Likely they would have turned a yr older later in the yr. so add a yr to age and then subtract
OR
If death is in Dec. you can subtract the age as given assuming they did not have a late Dec birthday.
ALL OTHER DEATH MONTHS NEED PROOF so that means likely a birth certificate .

TRANSFER REQUEST PROCEDURE,please STATE
1.NAME
2.MEMORIAL NUMBER and link
3.YOUR RELATIONSHIP.

WITHOUT THIS I WILL NOT RESPOND.


If your request is on my public page then omit the link.


IF YOU ARE SENDING EDITS OR REQUESTS USING
"OTHER" IN THE EDIT SECTIONS PLEASE LEAVE THEM ON MY PUBLIC PAGE INSTEAD.

Langstaff Family Trees
I have a person married to a Langstaff. But knowing all the people of old..usually had up to a dozen kids...so I knew he couldn't be the only Langstaff. And I was right....far and wide....

A whole new kettle of worms...

Have a good night,
Evelyn.

RE: George Langstaff/Margaret McKnight
Yes, I know this, but on the entries there is nothing to do so, so it must have been put on before that feature was available.

Greetings: I wondered if you might link memorial no. 97038236 and 97038422, as they are man and wife.

RE: Henry downer obit.
Yes, for Henry Downer I spotted more than one piece of conflicting information. The tombstone states he died aged 86 years. The obituary you found says 84 years, as does his death registration. The informant for the death registration was H. Downer - and may be the same person who wrote the obituary.

I think, given what one sees, his birth year could be either 1822 or 1824. The censuses I saw had his birth year ranging from 1823 to 1828. I'd go with 1824 because of the two sources mentioned above, but one could add a note about the conflicting information.

RE: George and Rachel Flack
I got the marriage information on John Robert Downer and Hannah Flack from the Ontario marriage registration itself (have access to the digital images on Ancestry). The registration # is 013664-98.

I know all about this problems seen in some transcriptions and indexes as I have run into them countless times myself. Even the actual registrations can be wrong - but I do take them over a transcription. However, saying that, I note the differences so that the person can be found more than one way.

RE: Garnet Wilkins
Hi - thank you for the info...I have transferred this to your management and you can change it to a cenotaph for Garnet etc. Very interesting indeed. By the way, I was unsure how to change it to a "Cenotaph"...

RE: George and Rachel Flack
It appears Hannah (Harriet) is the daughter of George and Rachel Ann. I have added the relationship. There are other edits outstanding for Harriet Flack.

The marriage data inserted is incorrect The groom is John Robert DOWNER (not Downie), and his parents are listed in the marriage record as Henry DOWNER and Jane DOWNER.

RE: edits
I normally do use the edit feature but one is not allowed back in once one edit is submitted. Since I was doing a bunch yesterday this seemed the way for one person who I was afraid I wouldn't remember later.

Thanks.
