Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a family man and web programmer, who has recently assumed the role of family historian from my mother.

I am active on Ancestry.com, and I used Findagrave,com to help in my research.

The memorials in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN (except Charles and Elsie Slocum) are random headstones I photographed while my buddy was taking requested headstones. If you want one transferred to you, just let me know.

The families I'm most interested are in my Virtual Graveyard.

Check out my genealogy blog: Digging Up the Tree.

Find A Graves Change
A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy
==========================

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.

CHAD BROWN MEMORIAL
THIS IS NOT A GRAVESTONE BUT A MEMORIAL LOCATED AT NORTH BURIAL GROUND IN PROVIDENCE RI
IT SAYS ON THIS MEMORIAL THAT HE DIED ABOUT 1665 not 1650 like you have listed here. birth 1603 not 1600.

Altho he is not my ancestor I have been to this memorial & he is a very important person in the history of RI. I feel that you should change the description to be accurate or remove it completely & let someone else do the correct research

Photo request for Lola Powell
If you call the cemetery and get the burial location I will go out and take the photos that you requested. Due to privacy laws this cemetery will not give out grave locations to non-family members.
You can email me direct at szalko67@msn.com or post the plot number on your memorial pages and I'll keep an eye out for them.

RE: Willard Corman
You're very welcome; remember my husband is also related to the Cornman/Corman family so I really like to have his relatives memorials really complete.

RE: Glenn Reed Morris
I have nothing more just the fact that they were his children. I have a book that my father wrote many years ago. He grew up close to Ocheltree KS and knew all those old timers.
I'm trying to pass on all the info I have so others can benefit from it.
The other two probably are still living.

RE: Wanda and Draper Downing
We're both having brain farts. You have his place of burial listed at ancestry.

I checked and there is a memorial w/photo for him at Grandview Cemetery. Wanda's name is on the marker but no burial date.

Also, the date of birth (Wanda) on the marker is probably wrong if she was born in November as her brother, Thomas was def. born Feb 26, 1900.

I sent an update message to the creator of Draper's memorial asking him to create the family links.
