Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. If I am not a relative, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo. I also use the abbreviation OSSW (on same stone with) frequently when two or more people share the same stone.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.

*****************************************

Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

*****************************************
I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

*****************************************

Note: 99.9% of all Find A Grave contributors are wonderful people. However, there are a few people who operate outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. There are some people who create memorials for relatives and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find their relatives and create memorials for them in a given cemetery. Then after the relative is found, the person sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. This has happened to me on more than one occasion! Please don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of your relatives you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

RE: Lucina Rawson Ferris
Well, so do I, but out here in KY people stick people just about anywhere, and do not put a headstone there, so many of my relations out here have no headstone and are lost. I can back that up though if Findagrave has an issue.

RE: Lucina Rawson Ferris
Yes, you did it right, and she had it in NEW YORK. I messaged her about that, and this is what she did. She ignored me, and simply changed the location to where you had her.

RE: Edward Harroun
That would be great! Thanks so much. Any ideas on what I should do about that lady who is being a jerk about Lucina's memorial?

Lucina Rawson Ferris
I let the lady know that her grave listing was erroneous, and guess what she did? She ignored me, refused to respond, and instead listed the CORRECT info (that you had already put on there from the get-go). I reported her to Findagrave, but nothing has been done yet. So now my ancestors William Rawson and Polly Harvey have two different memorials linked to them for their daughter Lucina. So frustrating! I messaged the lady again, still no response.

I have now transferred those two memorials for the Starin family to you. I have a lot of notes with some gaps on the family when they lived in and near River Falls. If there are any lookups you'd want me to do in this part of Wisconsin I can do those for you if you have any. I'm also willing to transfer notes on Starin or Sweet that I have already compiled. Just write me directly at riverfallshistory@yahoo.com. Thank you.

Maria: Wrong parents?
Hello.

You and I both have Maria Masar as an ancestor, both pointing to Mathias and Maria Rehak Masar.

We should probably figure this out so we're not spreading misinformation to the world.

I am looking for the marriage certificate of my Maria Masar (to Gregorius Zsilka) where, I am pretty sure, it states parental data (of both bride and groom) and Mathias and Maria (Rehak) are listed.

If I can find that, I'll send you a copy, if you can tell me how to reach you by email. I have a brand-new account here, on Find A Grave, so maybe there is a way to share information privately.

Did you research that information, or did your family have birth records, etc. for her already? I'd like to understand this. Thank you. - Ken
