Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born & raised in NJ, Moved to Indiana when married 1976. 2 adult children, one married. LPN 1976 til 2004.
1st g'child (boy) was born the 1st wk of Jan. 2016. This has greatly reduced my time taking pics at cem's & working with records on findagrave. Only been taking pics at Maple Grove when I'm there changing family flowers. Updated 4/10/2016.

ANCESTRY.COM trees: SCHAUSS, TRAUTVETTER (includes: LIBBERT, CASTLE, INGRAM, ANGEL, SPLITTORF for ex. Both trees are linked by LIBBERT family), biological EMMONS (includes GREAVES), adoptive SWAN/FREEMAN (FREIERMUTH), in-law's family: HERBERT
------------------------------------------------
MY GRAVE STONE PICTURES ARE DONATIONS TO THE WEB SITE. Please put Source for anyone's pic that is copied from findagrave. Ex: Photo Source: findagrave.com & can add mem pg # - SEE FINDAGRAVE Q & A's.

PORTRAITS - Request to not copy these pics. Can attach pics to ancestry trees using my pics from my trees - on ancestry.com. This keeps the owner (me) attached to the pic.

Started out taking pics of & recording all the names on the walls of the Mausoleum bldgs. Then would ck mem pgs in alphab. order & make list of pgs without pics. Have taken pics of some entire sections. Lately can only take a few pics at a time vs how I used to spend hrs at a time at cemeteries. (Updated 6-2016)

Messages: I appreciate & enjoy reading all the kind words. But I delete them on occ. So I want to let members know that I do accept messages.

FINDAGRAVE POLICY:

"Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission."

"Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law."

Discovered another reason for not posting pics that we didn't take. Whenever an obit pic is added it records as "PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN" ON OUR PROFILE. So for the members who do this a lot, their "Photos taken" is showing way more pics than they actually took. Gives me another reason to not copy & post the portraits from the grave stones any more. Another reason is since members copy other people's pics for their ancestry trees & don't add the source as they should per findagrave copyright policy.
-------------------------
My (non family) pics of grave stones are posted for public use but NOT the family portraits. They can be added to your trees from my trees on ancestry.com. Do NOT copy from findagrave. I've found on ancestry without source of pic. -- Thanks.
--------------------------
Browning Funeral Home Web Site:
Copyright: They encourage copying info (for own use). Have to ask permission to "publish". Note: I don't use the site.

Transferred memorial to you since I'm no relation and he is in your husband's family.

Zachariah Turpen
If you go to my profile page, my email is visible. Please send an email and & I can send you Zachariah's death certificate, WW I Draft Registration and his marriage certificate that all list his name as Zachariah. He's also listed as Zachariah in most census data. What is posted on his page is the death certificate transcription, which can be found on Ancestry, as well as his death certificate.

I have no problem making his nickname Zach as i've seen it on a couple of records.

As to Marsha, I can also send you her death certificate, which lists her father as Charles L. Turpen and her mother as Betty Elmendorf. I can also send you her marriage record, listing her parents and funeral home information, listing her father.

Thank you for attaching the children. I like to get all of my ducks in a row before I attach them. You saved me a few steps! Are you related in any way?

Thanks,

Tari Parr
