Prior to retiring in August 2014, I was an elementary school library media specialist for 20 years. As an avid quilter for over 35 years, I am thrilled to be able to have more time to devote to my quilting projects. I also enjoy researching my family's genealogy in my spare time and find that these two passions (quilting and genealogy) work very well together!
RE: Mary Jane (Smith) Hughes - #153194317 hello thank you for visiting Mary Jane and James Henry Hughes. I always want the memorials I manage to end up managed by family members...much time went in to the research of these folks. Hoping you will maintain their biographies leaving the info collected. best regards
RE: Mary A. Crossman - duplicate Hello again; Duplicate is deleted. Just FYI, as explained in my earlier reply, although the spreadsheet I submitted back in 2002 was only submitted by me once to Find A Grave, it somehow was posted TWICE, resulting in over 800 duplicate listings for that cemetery. At that time, it wasn't possible to delete one of the postings, and it would have been too time consuming to try to delete them one at a time in a sitting (over 8 hours at that time) so I've been deleting them as someone contacts me about one, such as you did. Although Find A Grave may not like duplicates, in this case and at that time, all concerned seemed to agree it was better to have TWO identical memorials than to have none. Like you, I take a lot of time and care when I add memorials to Find A Grave, either as spreadsheets or single additions. You may already be aware of this, but this cemetery has a website with burial records accessible. The site is http://www.pinegrovecemeteryct.com/Burials.asp Thanks again for your input.
RE: William Crossman Hello; thanks for your input. FYI, when I submitted the spreadsheet for Pine Grove Cemetery way back in 2002, it somehow got posted twice, once on 6 October and then again about a week later. Although it's pretty easy POSTING a spreadsheet like that, about 800+ interments, at that time, they apparently couldn't DELETE it as a sheet; they had to be removed one at a time. I timed how long it took to delete one person, it worked out to about 45 seconds, now it's a little less with a cable modem and faster computer, but it would still take me over six hours of non-stop deleting to get all the duplicates off. For that reason, I delete them when someone contacts me, as with your William Crossman. I know at that rate I'll probably be a permanent resident on Find-A-Grave myself before I get them all deleted, but it's better to have two than none. A lot of people use find a grave, especially the older cemeteries, to research their family. Thanks again for your input, and your contributions to Find-A-Grave. John W.
Thank you for sponoring Emma Smith LeClair. She is a great part of my laclair/Leclair family. I lived in the Chazy NY for 16 years and am related to everyone up there. Which Child is your parent? If you would like me to transfer Emma L. Smith Leclair to you, let me know. Now that you found her, she could be yours.
