Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born August 21, 1942. I am a retired electronics technician. I have been doing family and local history for over 50 years, off and on. I especially like photography and my latest project is photographing all the cemeteries I can find in Montgomery and Bond counties, IL. All the data and pics I generate are on my web page for anyone who would like to use them.
I have noticed that some people are hesitant to ask for a transfer of a memorial. Please ask. I have entered these memorials with the intention of finding them a home.
Given the number of memorials I manage, I don't like to do edits and corrections. I'll take any requests for those as a request for a transfer.

Transfer of Pate memorials
Hi Dale,

Thanks for the transfers! I have added info and family links to both of the memorials. I greatly appreciate your consideration in transferring, even to distant but active family members. That allows additional info to be added to memorials without taxing an unrelated person. The quality of the memorial can be improved!

Hi Dale, Betty and Laurel Blacet are my still living grandparents and I was wondering if you could transfer them over to me. If you were willing to transfer any other Blacet's or even any Ulmet's that you have entered would be great! Great thing about the Blacet last name is that we are all related to each other :)

Thank you
Thank you, Dale, for the transfer of Betty Schepansky. I see now, reading your profile, that you are happy to transfer. I will take good care of her memorial, and I thank you for adding it to begin with.

Nancy Poquette
RE: Nancy Paisley
Having looked more closely, I now see that all of the maintenance of the Paisley family has been transferred to Cindy Fissel, so I contacted her.

There is still the quandary concerning Nancy E, the daughter of William and Nancy Paisley. I will check to see if your email is listed here, and if it is, I will send you copies of the two photos posted on Montgomery County Historical Society's website. I was hoping that if you live close by, you could pick a day to run out there and check. The only coordinates given, refer to it as being in the east block.

Thank you, though, for all of the wonderful photos and memorials that you have created!! Regards, Nancy

Rose Bayliff
Hi Dale,

Would it be okay if I use the headstone picture you took for my 3rd great grandmother Rose Bayliff (memorial #59527140)for my family tree? I swear...I think you have created memorials for almost all my family in Bond County, IL! I am very appreciative for all the work you have put into this site. Thank you!

Edits for several memorials in Sunnyside Cem, Sorento, IL
Hi Dale,

I made some suggestions for linking memorials to family members in the Sunnyside Cem. in Sorento,IL.

It looks the administrators of Find-A-Grave have made it so much easier! When you log-in, on your contributor homepage, there is a tab at the top that says edits. If you click on that tab, there is a drop down menu. Select "Edits sent to me that I need to review". That will have all the edits that people have suggested. You just go in and approve them with the click of a button instead of having to input all the numbers. If for whatever reason, this does not work as intended...can you message me and let me know? I will send you the individual memorial numbers with requested edits if it does not work.

Thank you so much!
