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!

Transfer requests?
Thank you for your dedication to Find A Grave. I sent transfer requests by 'edit' two weeks ago on my parents and grandparents memorials, which have not come through. Hope all is okay?

Correction?
Hi, can you please review your Find A Grave Memorial# 55597635. You have two different birth dates and it's making it difficult for us to do the ancestry trees because we are unsure what you meant. Thanks.
