If you contact me, please take a moment to say hello, good morning, or hey how are ya. On occasion I get "suggest a correction" notices that are brief, abrupt, and unfriendly in tone and seem more like robot communication than actual human beings. It's a personal pet peeve and I don't react well to those sorts of messages. A little simple human courtesy goes a long way with me.|
I research my family history in southwestern and south central Pennsylvania for the most part, although I live in northeastern New Jersey. Counties of interest include Bedford, Blair, Franklin, Fulton, Somerset, Westmoreland, Cambria, Fayette, Washington, Indiana, and others.
PLEASE: If you request an interaction with me, whether to discuss a memorial or request a transfer, please do not be "Anonymous" and not provide any means to contact you. I recently had someone request a transfer but when I tried to contact the person, was told that the submitter was anonymous and there was no way to leave a public message for him or her. I'm not comfortable with this method of communicating. Thanks.
PLEASE: If you write to me via "Suggest a Correction" PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide me with evidence in the form of some kind of documentation for any edits you'd like me to make. This is especially true if I don't already know who you are. It's not possible for me to simply accept what someone out of the blue tells me is valid without sources, documentation, proof or some other compelling argument. Sorry to sound like a grouch, but that's just the way my work goes.

|Brian J. Ensley||RE: Jacoby|
Always glad to help!
|cataholic4ever||RE: photos of obits|
James Jones in Greenwood is an example of obit photo and obit in bio already.
Thanks again for your help and understanding with this matter
|cataholic4ever||RE: photos of obits|
The Find A Grave guidelines probably explain it better than I did.
But things like death certs and obits have to be added under "other" and not as "person" or "family".
I myself would rather add the obit in the bio section than have it added as a photo at all. I have seen a few obits you have added to my memorials that I have already added in the bio. Each memorial only gets 5 picture slots so to add a death cert and the obit in the pic slots is a little redundant if that info is in the bio section already. And then with the grave photo you can't add hardly anything else.
I ask that you please send me the obits so I can add them into the bios instead of adding them by photo to the memorial. This also lets me know of extra info that I might be able to glean from the obit to make corrections to the family memorial. If I don't know an obit has been added I don't get the corrections made which is some thing I would like to keep up on (keeping memorials up to date)
Thank you for your help!
Have a great day

Can you please change Linus Jones obit that you added also. It was added under person too.
Thanks and have a great day!
Hi, would you please change the death cert you added to her memorial under "other" instead of as "family" or "person".
All you have to do is delete the photoand then just added it as "other" in the drop down box for photos.
When you add death certs under person or family it takes over for any other photos added as the top photo which is not fair to others who actually have a photo of that family member. As well as the icon is different for other photos and for pictures of the family.
Thank you for understanding!
|Joan of VA||John Stiffler & Margaret Dishong|
I have made corrections and added the obits to John and Margaret Stiffler's memorial pages.
I appreciate your help, and for adding John's Death Cert on his memorial page.
I,m sure those researching the Stiffler name, will be grateful.
|Julie Nicholson-Turbide||the Kerrs|
Thank you for the great additions to their memorials … I've made the changes. Edits are never an issue as I love to add as much information as possible to memorials! Thanks again and have a blessed Sunday,
|Joan of VA||David Stiffler Piper|
I have linked David to his parents, and added the date of his birth.
Thank you for putting his death certificate on his memorial.
I really appreciate your helping me.
|L K King||Otto Family in Fairview Cemetery|
Hello Michael, First, I totally agree with your views as stated in your profile.
Next, thanks for all of the extra information that is attached to (at least) the memorials of the Otto family members buried in Fairview Cemetery in Altoona, Blair, PA.
With all of the information I was wondering if you are somehow related to this family. I am related (or so I think) I have my third great grandfather and family in Bedford. But with this other line of this family I am having some difficulty making sure who, how and where they belong. If you are related possibly you have some information that would help me. Thanks.
Linda King aka firstname.lastname@example.org

|penni katzmann||Just a Hello|
Haven't been working on my ancestry stuff for quite some time but am trying to pick up where I left off...not so easy. Your name always seems to pop up, as going through my Uncles papers and such, and now here on this site. I was wondering if you were still around and doing any research?
Still hope to make it to the Stone House in Akersville someday, enjoy talking with the owners and seeing all the progress they have done.
