I am delighted to have found Find A Grave, and happy to contribute by adding memorials and photos.

Currently, I am "mowing the rows" in NE Ohio, including Medina, Wayne, Summit,Stark & Carroll counties. I never know just where my wanderings will take me, but I am usually looking for a cemetery.

Pittsburgh, PA, specifically the Homewood area is of particular interest. I am currently preparing to index a collection of ledgers from the Fisher & Owen Funeral Home that was located there from about 1912 through the early 50's.

So much information in these old volumes! It is exciting and at the same time, a bit overwhelming. If you have ancestors from that area, I don't mind doing lookups, and will soon have an eBay listing offering that service, or you can email direct through FaG.

Please know I am happy to make corrections, add information, and to transfer within the FaG guidelines, which can be found by following the "Help with Find A Grave" link.

Please make all requests/suggestions through the EDIT tab at the top-right of each memorial.

Cheers!

Constantin Oref vs Gref
I meant to add that you manage his and my grandmother Pauline Oref's grave site on here. They are buried in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, Grafton, Ohio. If you wouldn't mind I would like to take over management of them since they are my grandparents. I am a newbie to Find a Grave so I am not sure how to go about it.

Thank you,

Pauline Oref Fitts

Constantin Oref vs Gref
This is my grandfather and you have the last name spelled wrong. As you notice on the grave it is spelled Oref not Gref. I thought I would bring this to your attention.

Thank you,

Request the transfer of the linked below family grafton OH memorials at St Mary's to me so we can get family links and bio's etc correct ASAP. We (Chis Noga, Linda and I) have been working hard for several months to get these all corrected and updated but 30 days for each change is making things very difficult.

Thanks for you time and consideration

Hi.

I am a member of Ancestry.com and have found some things (SS death index, 1940 census, etx) on Marjorie M Christie (also John Donald Christie and Michael G Christie). If you are not a member and would like copies of what I found, let me know.
