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: Death certificates
They must have changed their stance on DC's because I know you couldn't put them on there before. Good to know you can though. :)

RE: Thomas Parry photo again
The site automatically adds a cemetery picture to each memorial in that cemetery. The picture I took was put on the main cemetery page, and was selected to go on each memorial. Every memorial in that cemetery has my picture on it unless the person who made the memorial has removed it. If you sponsor the memorial, for $5, I think you can put up to 20 pictures on it, and it takes the ads off.

RE: photo removal request
I cant remove the cemetery photo, thats put on by F-A-G but underneath the last picture it says how to remove the cemetery photo. I can clear the picture problem up real quick though, death certs aren't allowed on the memorials. Sorry.

Sherry :)

RE: 41062126 Mavis Hegstrom
I am so happy you like the photo. I believe everyone in Tahoma deserves to have his marker and a flower on his memorial. It takes time and I have slowed down, but figure it is something I can do for our veterans. Thank you for the note.

RE: non-cemetery burials
I usually wait for someone with more information (like a relative) to contact me so I can update the memorial.

Advice requested
The "von" used to be an aristocratic prefix to the name, or it descibed the person's connection to a geographic entity.
"Ludwig von Bayern", would be Ludwig of Bavaria. With the abolishment of the aristocracy in Germany in 1918 the prefix actually became part of the name.
So, "von Bayern" would be the entire name. Therefore it should be entered as such. The "von" is in small caps and there is a space between the two words.
To make matters more complicated: The actual family names of former German (and other countries') royals are different from what they are actually called. The family name of the last German emperors was actually "von Hohenzollern", just like the current queen of England's name is "of Windsor".

RE: Levi Aker
I did not find it offending, I know I have made duplicates in error and appreciate cleaning up my files. I was just helping. Thank you. Have a great day.
