A good percentage of my memorials are directly, or distantly, related to my husband or myself.
Remember, you can post photos without maintaining the memorial, and I will be happy to update.
Please send an edit rather than posting information in the flower section.
------------------------------------------ In order to create a link in the biography of one memorial to someone else's memorial (such as the person's spouse or parent), you will need to use a bit of HTML code.
In the biography, you would need to type < a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">Name< /a>
where XXXXXXX is the GRid number of the memorial you want to link. The GRid is a unique id for each memorial and as such is the only thing within the entire URL that must be included. The "Name" is what will show up on the screen as a link.
You will need to remove the space between < and a at the beginning as well as the space between the < and / at the end. The spaces were added here to actually show you the code.
Memorial# 60240461 Rueben Zimmerman's Gravestone show his death date as Apr 25, 1843 aged 27 yrs 3 mos 4 day. Is there a reason for the difference. Thank you for all you do on Find A Grave Judi and Marie
Christopher Timberman #149723952 Janice, I am working on a genealogy project for a friend whose husband is a Timberman. When I showed her the Find-a-Grave memorials, she was excited, but indicated that the Christopher was the son of Jacob & Catherine Earnhardt, not Jacob Christopher and Zibilla. When I checked the dates and did some calculations, I felt there should be another generation between Christopher and Jacob Christopher. The age for the child-bearing of Christopher would be likely improbable, although not impossible. Other websites also indicate that he is the son of Jacob & Catherine, although I am always suspicious if no sources are given.
I also saw the diary that Sam Maddox had posted which showed you had made a response, so thought you might be related, rather than just adding memorials, which in itself is a great benefit to those of us who are not in the vicinity of the cemeteries. I am trying to work on the diary information to see if it can be determined who might have recorded in it.
RE: Edward W Graham Thanks again. Regarding Emma's mother's maiden name, can you please use the edit tab to send that to the manager of her memorial? I tried to look at her source, but for a couple of days now, I have been unable to access the California Death Index. My computer freezes everything I click on it, and it never opens.
RE: Edward W Graham Okay, I've really made some headway on this! I went to Inglewood today, and they disclosed Emma's location and she is in fact sharing a double crypt with Edward. Photos will follow in a few minutes. Unfortunately, her name was never engraved on the crypt. I am always disappointed when a location is unmarked. I am sorry it turned out that way!
I will also be adding the information you sent to my profile page.
Thank you for being patient while I worked on this.
RE: Edward W Graham Thank you, that is helpful. Maybe that part of "suggest another correction" does not accept that much info at one time? Whatever the reason, it is annoying, because on your end, it looks like it got sent, and on my end, nothing, so it looks like I've either deleted it or ignored it, which wasn't the case. Maybe you could take that question to the Forums and see if anyone else had that happen, and if there is a solution.
RE: Edward Graham Sorry! The only thing was I saw was for his middle name, and another one for dates and places, to just "accept" or "decline". There was nothing received on my end that had any documentation or any narratives or explanations of any type. I checked my deleted emails and it is not there, either. Will you please send it again?
I'm at work right now but I will check back later.
RE: Edward Graham Ooops! I haven't disclosed my email address on Find A Grave. What email address did you send it to?
PS - sorry to be a pain, but I get a lot of requests for Edits, and some of them are wrong, and then other people ask me where the info came from, and I don't have a clue. So if changes to certain aspects are requested, I usually go back and do the research myself. But if you are willing to provide evidence, that's even better! Thanks for your patience.
RE: Infant Miller # 71364511 It was found in the cemetery records. The date may actually be the interment date, but with infants that is often the same date or one day later. No further information available in there except plot.
I'm going through some of the older funeral home records that are available too so may be able to update again in the future.
You might try contacting the WyCo museum to see if they can find anything. Their number is 913-573-5002. They're great help out there!
