SACs sent to me may not arrive, having e-mail trouble

I'm trying to find lots of records for people looking for their ancestors. For those concerned about following the rules, "Please limit the number of "Suggest A Correction" requests you send to an individual contributor to no more than 20 per week." If you insist on blasting out thirty or forty in a short time, I'm more likely to make mistakes trying to catch up, and to miss making family links. I try to do SACs within 48 hours (unless they're local to me, then I add them to my spreadsheets) but may not have time to message you. If sending SACs, please finish your research first (I got five non-duplicate SACs in twenty minutes on the same memorial from the same member). I'm willing to transfer memorials to relatives. If you sponsor a memorial (not in my family) that I created, I'll transfer regardless, you paid for it, you should get something. It was a wild "first year". I doubted I'd ever get 8000 memorials, now I've transferred more than that. I probably won't find many more but I'll still be here for maintenance. I might even work on my *own* genealogy. E-mail address is


Hopefully you understand how I'm avoiding spammers.

Basil E Stoner
Please disregard and delete my previous message regarding the memorial for Basil E. Stone and Arkona Cemetery. I was confused about the information I had. Everything is okay with this memorial as it is.

Oh No! You are going to hate me. Bernard was born on the 18th. Somehow I keyed in 17 by mistake. And up to this point, I was having a great genealogy night!

I am SOO SORRY! :(

My Goodness . . . I was still adding the name of the cemetery, address, and plot information to my tree for Bernard and Grace when I realized you had already entered the edits! Thank you so much! When I told my husband he said you and I must be related!

Bernard was my late husband, Mark Laurence Waterman's (1948-1983) 2nd cousin 1 time removed. My work is for me, Mark, and our children.

Is Prospect Hill Cemetery a Jewish Cemetery?

Again, thank you for making the edits, and all that you do to remember those who have passed.

God Bless,

Basil E. Stoner Memorial, Arkona Cemetery
The biographical information states that Basil E. Stoner 1916-1968 rested in a Dutton Funeral Home and was buried in Mayfield Cemetery, near Dutton, in Middlesex County yet you have posted his memorial in Arkona Cemetery in the former Township of Bosanquet, Lambton County. This is the wrong location and it would be appreciated if you deleted this memorial and posted it in the correct cemetery. His number is3835860.

RE: Philo McDonald
Thank you so much! I am so excited to finally start piecing this family together. Or at least finding the pieces, I guess. With their parents' early deaths, the offspring got pretty scattered.
Thanks again for your kindness.

Thanks for the quick transfer, but even more thanks for the incredible number of sites you have created to make it possible for so many to find their ancestors.
