Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone,
What a great site Find-A-Grave is. Ive been doing Genealogy since the 60's and my travels have taken me to many places. I started trying to do my family tree by asking my father if he had information on his (Cross) family. Naturally he said no, but I eventually found a large box with 73 old pictures, some old diaries and papers with brittle paper tape on them and lots of writing.. It was wonderful and I have been filling in the blanks ever since. My grandmother had attempted Genealogy back in the 1800's and gave me many clues on those old papers..
I am a Registered Nurse and since my retirement I'm trying to put whole cemeteries on Find-A-Grave. Many of the Memorials I have submitted are not my relatives. I just thought they might help someone. I am happy to transfer or update any who are not related to me but are related to you.. However please use the Edit button on the Memorial and follow the FAG guidelines for transfers you wish to receive. Some people have not done that and leave off important data so I have not been able to transfer them.
Thanks for creating this site.

Harold B Kirby
Good morning, I am looking for a photo of the head stone of Harold B Kirby, Evergreen Cemetery, Grand Blanc, MI under your Find A Grave # 122313578. I was wondering if you might have one. Thank you, I live out of state, so am not able to take one. Have a great day!

linked to the wrong husband
Your memorial of Mary Van (Steinburgh) Shaver, Memorial# 53317292 is linked to husband Daniel Shaver, Memorial# 53317222.

Daniel Shaver's only wife was Margaret Ann Dillabaugh, marriage Oct 29, 1829 in Matilda Twp, Dundas Co, Ontario, Canada.

Daniel was not married to Mary Van Steinburgh at all. The contributor to Daniel Shaver, Memorial# 53317222 isn't able to un-link them.

Please un-link them.

Thank you very much.

duplicate records
This is a duplicate record that I already created for find a grave a year prior to your record 52299774. My record has her connected to her husband and a child.
For the same family, you and Barb Lajoie have created another duplicate and her's has more information than yours does...her's is
112773956 and yours is 52301816.
I was wondering if we can cut out the duplicate records.

Thanks, Bonnie
