Bio and Links
Please do not write "encyclopedias" in the comments section of the new-style SACs - I am unable to copy and paste them into the bio.
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 forty-eight hours 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 7000 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.

I've made a few edits, adding relationships to her parents. She is my great grandfather's sister. Thanks so much!

Capt David Wade
I believe you have David (Mar 14, 1732) the son of Thomas confused with David the son of David in your posting. The stone, and it is hard to read, suggests that the David who died 07 May 1817 was only 51 (?) years old. David, son of David and Mary was born 20 Sept 1766 (Bridgewater Vitals). Capt David and Chole had a son David born 12 Jul 1792 in Easton and died 13 Apr 1860 in Dartmouth. I can certainly be wrong about this ID, so if you have anything that would help with this confusion, please let me know.

RE: management handover
Thank you for hand over it is much appreciated as is I notice the number of memorials you have added which is a huge help for those finding relatives or researchers in general which is how I came upon this site. Have only recently taken up with being a photo helper feeling especially in this commemorative year, the importance of ensuring as many as possible WW1 and WW2 grave photos can be added

Annie Bryant #63753486

I earlier asked for a photo of Annie's stone. However I got a message from the volunteer that "they walked the entire 50 block, and found no marker for Annie Bryant".

Just wondering where you got the information you used to create the memorial for her.

If there is no stone, maybe a comment added to her memorial, adding that fact, would be useful.

Thanks so much for your work; and for you help in this matter.

RE: Augusta Dunham
Thank YOU so much for creating the memorial page for Augusta. I almost cried when I realized that I had finally found her, after searching for years. I still can't believe that the final missing piece of our family history has been filled in and that I was able to link her back to all of her siblings and to her parents. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your work and your generous transfer policy. Thanks again!

Shatto Memorials
Again, thanks for the edits on the additional Shatto memorials in various places. I think I've "run the table" on the Shatto memorials you manage. I must say you certainly get around the US and many thanks for your work establishing memorials. Given the number of memorials you have I'm sure we'll trip over each other in the future.

All the best, Barry Michie # 47110636 (Shatto family researcher)

Shatto Memorial in Vincennes
Thanks so much for the quick edits, some substantial, for the 5 Shatto memorials you manage in Memorial Park, Vincennes, Indiana. For someone who has so many memorials you are a pleasure to work with, particularly, in comparison to those who have very few and never respond. All hats off to you for keeping on top of things.
