Bio and Links
Just a lady who has always, for some strange reason, enjoyed the stories and the serenity of cemeteries--which in the long run will prove to be a good thing. ;-)

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members. That's really the only reason I occasionally create one for a person who isn't related to me--to be able to share the information and maybe a photo or two with a family member who knows and cares about that person.

RE: Friedrich Wilhelm von Braunschweig-Wolfenb
The cathedral was duplicated and you just placed the memorial in the duplicate. So, hey, you did not overlook the memorial. :)

Have a nice day,

Thanks for your kind words on the spelling of this couple. After checking it out I changed the spelling on my memorials from Randahl and Rendahl. I don't know what the spelling will show on the Headstone as that request hasn't been done but I found another tree which had the family on and they had the spelling as Rendahl also. Thanks again Arlys

RE: George Richard Renfrew
Thanks Kendall, for the offer of transfer. I'm not related to the family that I know of -- although the Renfrews probably _knew_ my Meredith great-grand and grandparents in Quebec City, as they all would have moved in the same society circles. :D

It was actually an interesting post on Facebook last week about the company Holt Renfrew which has decided to close their Ste-Foy store in Quebec City (thereby ending 150+ years of HR history in the city where it was founded), that set me off looking into the Renfrews.

Since it was fairly easy to look up details about George's wife and most of their children, I just carried on until I managed to create memorials for all the ones I found, as well as requesting links for the two who were already on Find-a-Grave out in BC. So currently I am creator and/or steward for 9 out of the 12 Renfrew family memorials on F/G, excluding only George and the two of their sons who moved out west.

I just love doing all this, for the sake of doing it for others (and posterity) really. However if you aren't related yourself and still would be willing to transfer George's memorial, I would be more than pleased to assume stewardship of his entry, and would also add some of the information I came across during my research. :)

All the best, =]) Beth

RE: George Richard Renfrew
You're most welcome. I still have memorials for 4 of his children to add; these will be completed shortly. All the best :)

RE: Naomi E. Slack
Hi, I didn't think to click on the double stone photo to see if I put notes. I wrote that she is with Lawrence. Sorry for the confusion! Since I didn't make the memorial, I couldn't add the note and there were so many, I didn't ask Judy to add the note. So that solves your mystery! Linda

RE: Naomi E. Slack
Hi, if I recall, the city of Oxford has the cemetery listing showing who is buried in each plot. I don't remember if this info is listed on a site anywhere on the web. You might try doing a search on Google. It seems that I had access to a listing of plots and names when I walked this cemetery looking for photos to go on memorials that had no photo. As you can see, my photo is not good quality but many of the plots are very deeply shaded by trees and it's hard to get a good photo. Judy had taken photos and didn't download unless they were perfect but I decided any photo is better than none. Good luck!

Hi Kendall,
I've executed your Blomeyer-requests. I agree to handle it in the future this way, concerning your memorials and my photos. Good idea.

thanks for your message. Please have a look to your contributions at 'Jenaer Nordfriedhof' and 'Meersburger Friedhof', too. There I've added also some photos.
Best Regards

RE: René Jalbert
I am so very honored to be the one looking after
M Jalbert's site. I have his son's e-mail address as he contacted me after his uncle passed and I will ask if there is anything the family would like put up to honor, as you so rightly put it, this Hero!
Merci encore et Que Dieu bénisse vous.
(Thank you again and God bless you.)
