Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find information and links for the memorials I create (and am aware that I am human and do make mistakes) so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I am also happy to do transfers but please don't send me a transfer request just stating "transfer it to me so I can update it" or ask me to link to "burial unknowns." Every edit or transfer request I receive gets researched and checked against the people buried near them to see if I can find a connection. So please if you have the information, use the edit tab to send the suggestion and THEN ask for the transfer.

Also I create memorials for families so please do not ask for a transfer because you are collecting Civil War soldiers, Pioneers, or whole cemeteries etc. These were real people, not something to be collected and I refuse to treat them as such.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have added photos, send corrections or shared stories or obituaries with me about the memorials in my care. And to those who kindly accept the many edit/link requests that I send out.

A note about photos:
I have been using the beta photo up-loader and one of its quirks is that it doesn't show you if there is already a photo on a memorial. I have tried to delete any duplicate photos I have accidentally added but if you find I have missed one please feel free to let me know.

RE: Margaret Ludwig

Slowly but surely I am trying to put my family tree together, which includes computerizing 45 years of handwritten notes. For over 26 years, I was able to spend most of my lunch hours at the Pennsylvania State Archives and Pennsylvania State Library.

I do have the following:
familysearch "Minnesota, Deaths and Burials, 1835-1990": Kate V. Keatley, d. February 19,
1944, age 87, Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, father Harrison S. Ludwig, mother Margaret
Greiner, spouse John H. Keatley

Thank you very much,
David L. Klees

Arthur Arendal Hanson
I am requesting transfer of the memorial page for my Great-Granduncle, Arthur Arendal Hanson #107547779 and my contributor number is #15879681. I have more photos besides the two I've already posted of my Hanson family. Arthur was the older brother of my maternal grandfather, Robert Arendal Hanson and their sister, Elizabeth Arendal Hanson and half brother to James Roth Hanson who was born to their father's 3rd marriage. I'm getting all their family pages connected as well.

I have a digital copy of her obituary and can send it to you, which supports the edits I suggested.

RE: Bob Stanek memorial # 138267914
Thanks for the unexpected transfer. I'll see if anything else could be added. I don't have a photo of him in his official regalia, but I'll ask some of his friends if they do.

RE: Bob Stanek memorial # 138267914
Yes, I wrote the bio-sketch. Bob was a close friend of mine for many years.

Regarding waiting for updates, you had accepted the dates / location almost immediately. I wanted to make sure my other update didn't go into your trash (where I have found some Find A Grave updates for EDITS). You had also answered some other wall posts after I sent the update, so I knew you were active.

Thanks for attending to this.

Best regards,

Robert Chudek, Director
