Bio and Links
Bio Photo Notes for those interested:

My health often gets in the way of things but I do check my messages very often and I do my best to maintain current and accurate memorials. (Because of health issues, if I have forgotten to do something I said I'd do, feel free to remind me. I try my best... but I'm only human!)

I send far more edits than transfer requests. This means that I often spend hours looking up extended family and sending those page owners the family links. I also send biographical information, dates, etc. for pages I have no intention of asking for. I also now send (very antique) obituaries, and am trying to help in the 'transcribe the photos' beta here. I try to give back as much as I can.

I will only ask for a transfer of a page if it is a line that means something to me, if I am working hard on researching it and want to be able to continue to add information and links as I go; etc. With a tree of thousands of people, it is not very practical to keep tabs on pages like that, unless I have those pages, but I rarely ask for transfers. If I do, please consider my request rather than rebuffing it. The transfer rules here are meant as a guideline, not a contract.

(Addition August 2015 - In an effort to remember those whose records are lost in time, I am now finding and transcribing obituaries for various deceased. For the most part these deceased are not related to me in any way. In some cases I chanced across the clipping while researching my own lines. In some cases the person might have no issue, or otherwise have become obscured by the ensuing years. Please, add the obituary to their page. If they have no page, I will create one. These obituaries are typically 100 or more years in the past, and the transcription will always include source data.)

To me the important person here is THE DECEASED and that is something we should all remember.

Please do not upload images of my hand written Biographies of the deceased onto other websites. The main reason is that sometimes I make changes and rewrite them, as my research reveals new information. If you upload a static image, or a story under your own name, then I can never edit that to match the current version.

And yes, the other reason is proper credit. If you think credit does not matter, then please, make your own work available and put no stipulations on how or where it is used. Most people who upload other people's work under their own names, never do so.

(Addition August 2015: You may of course use anything found here for your personal, offline, genealogical and non profit uses. Please simply give credit for the written biography (my user name here is preferred - Tree Leaf), or in the case of a newspaper obituary transcribed from the archives, please include the source data i.e. newspaper date and title - and page if available.)

If there is a problem, please alert me rather than having my page destroyed - it is most upsetting to discover that by surprise years later, all of my work was wiped out, because someone unknown to me disagreed with the data. In one case, I had kept no copy of the handwritten biography, which contained much research data; it was lost when the page was zapped. (And by the way, the deceased's remains, were at the noted location; the cenotaph - without remains - was later found elsewhere, but, despite my being ready with sources, I was not contacted before my page was destroyed, taking the research and memorial with it.)

I do my best to research and source everything; I assure you, I take this as seriously as anyone does; so please, contact me first, if you have an issue with a page.

I am willing to help and answer questions if I can. If you have a question, or want help, ask.

Thank you to all of the helpful people here. You truly are angels. 99 percent of the people I have 'met' in my family history research have been wonderful.

RE: Thanks
I have corrected the photo for Anna Pfirmann (1855-1927). There are 3 Anna Pfirmanns in Block 1, Lot 63. This Anna has no stone, but she is buried next to Anna Caroline. Last night, I had uploaded a photo (which is why you got the success notice), but it was the wrong one. I deleted it, but it took until this afternoon until I had an opportunity to post the correct one.

I noticed you have several other requests for Greenmount. I'm trying to get those taken this week.

RE: Therissa Ingersol
I'm not sure when I'll be in that area again, but I will try to make a side trip to the cemetery the next time we're there and take another look.

John D. and Catherine Johnson
I have transferred John D. and Catherine Johnson's pages over to you. I am glad that you were able to find them. Makes me feel like doing this is worthwhile. I am slow at getting all of the dates put in but try to be as accurate as I can. I might be able to find their obituaries if you would like me to.

Re: John B. Hauptmann
I checked out the Van Dine Cemetery records on John Hauptmann (pg. 20) and it stated that the dates were 9 Dec 1832 to 26 Aug 1883. It also stated that Vina May was his daughter. I will try to get this record updated as soon as I can.
