Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently started doing research on my various families and have found the Find A Grave site an invaluable source. I greatly appreciate all the work others have done to provide information and hope that I can follow in their footsteps. Being new, I only plan to work on my direct families, but when time permits I hope to add information for others. Thank you to everybody who has contributed to this great site!

Thank you for seeing the duplicate on James Lee. I have added the father as you suggested. Please take a look to make sure it is correct. Also would you like a transfer? I am not related, but just want others to find their families like so many have helped me with. Send me a request with your number if you do.

Happy hunting,

RE: James and Alma Lee
I have added all my backlog of photos so I can now go find the ones I somehow missed! :-)
I am always glad to help.

Zigan duplicate graves
I have deleted my Zigan memorials and moved my pictures to the other memorial. If these had been in any other cemetery I might have thought that I accidentally made a duplicate even though I do check very diligently before adding memorials. But I have just spent 9 months cleaning up a mess that was made in this cemetery and have had almost 1000 duplicate removed. I am positive these other memorials were not in this cemetery when I posted my memorials. Just a reminder that a memorial in a specific cemetery takes precedence over any "unknown" burial memorials. I always check by first and last name before adding a memorial in a cemetery but it is impossible to locate all of the "unknown" burials out there. I am always willing to add info and delete memorials to cooperate but appreciate getting the entire story like on the Raymond Zigan memorial when I am asked to delete one of my memorials.

Now here is one I have never came across before. It seems we have 2 separate graves and headstones for the same person in 2 different cemeteries. I guess we have to find out where she is actually buried. The photos of the headstone both say the same thing but I am sure that they are two different stones. If you come up with the correct grave location let me know and I will delete mine if necessary. I have no documentation on my memorials. All I do is take photos of the headstones and then create a memorial in that cemetery.

RE: Re: Heinzen
Happy to do it. I'd rather have someone who knows or is related manage the memorials.

Looks like I created a memorial for Harold that you already had so you should delete the one I did. I think the only additional info I had was born in Minnesota. If you have any questions on anything else I did or added just let me know. Thanks.

RE: Heinzen
Your welcome. Hopefully you also got my message about Herbert, Jacob and Margaret Heinzen also being buried in Lewis. I know a lot of my emails haven't been going through.

I also added memorials for Lillian, Harold, Mabel and Nicole. I'd be happy to transfer them if you wish.

Verda Davis #101611001
Hello Michael,

"""Out of curiosity, why haven't you listed Verda's parents on her memorial? If you click on the highlighted names in Verda's memorial, it takes you to their memorials, but does not link them and hence when you look at her parents memorials, Verda is not listed as a child."""

The links you are referring to as Verda's parents, are actually her in-laws. The parents of her husband, John Davis. It's states

"...she married John Woodrow Davis, the son of Willis Robert Davis and Mary Almeda (Sloan) Davis".

If you know the links to her parents, please feel free to send them to me. I'd be happy to connect them.
