RE: John Edward St. Andre
Hi Mark!

I'm so sorry I didn't reply sooner. I didn't get an email for your message, and only just saw it.

I have, in fact, photographed ALL of the Calvary (not Calgary) section. I've photographed virtually all of St. Pat's cemetery, and try to keep up with new additions, too.

I suspect your grandfather's grave is unmarked. I notice that Sophronie's memorial has no photo either, which means I entered it from the death record, not from a grave marker. When you called, did you happen to ask where Sophronie is buried? Is she near John?

I should be able to get to the cemetery in the next few days (if someone doesn't beat me to it from your photo request) and I'll take a look. I'll have to try to get there when Jack is there, though. If the grave is unmarked, he'll still know just where it is.

In the meantime, I've taken the liberty of creating a memorial for your grandfather, based on the information you gave me. That will give us a place to post photos and GPS for you.

BTW, as to the 88%, there are many unmarked graves in this cemetery. There is, in fact, another entire section which had wooden, metal and concrete markers, which are all long gone. Unfortunately, there are also no records of some of these early burials, because records were lost when the cemetery was transferred from the Springfield Diocese to Worcester. A survey was apparently done at some point, but, by then, most of those markers were gone or illegible. So the percentage will NEVER be 100%, much as that pains me. However, that should not affect your search, at least.

I'll let you know how I fare.

David Mower
Joseph Berry in Grafton cemetery
You and I each have a memorial for Joseph Berry. Mine is number 59773. Yours is number 5106609.
A relative of Mr. Berry has contacted me and and he would contact you. Has he? He'd like to have one of the duplicates deleted. I have no objection.

Your full headstone photo is superior to mine.

My memorial is one I took over from the Utah State Historical Society.

What do you suggest?

Mistaken transfer
Mr. St. Andre,
Today another researcher transferred several memorials to me but I think transferred one to you in error. This person transferred the memorial of Constantine Eisinger (#44383375) to you but that of the wife, Helen Clayton (Latterner) Eisinger to me. I am related to the Eisingers and I think she made a mistake sending Constantine's memorial to you.
Would you be so kind as to transfer management of Constantine's memorial to me, Mark Scott (researcher #46804505)?
Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience,
Mark Scott

Transfer made in error
In Feb. of this year, I requested a transfer of a family member, Bessie E. Stone, Mem. # 38072220, from the creator of the memorial, Cyndi Nash ID#46937362. She made the transfer to you in error. I would appreciate it if you could correct her mistake and transfer Bessie E. Stone's memorial to me. My ID # is 47104083. Thank you for your attention to this request.

Toni Turk
Sturdivant Cemetery
I am working with the Sturdivant Cemetery Association to improve its presentation at find-a-grave. I have created a duplicate entry for your George W. Eddleman #21065952. This is George W. I. Eddleman #54751610. The reason for the duplicate is to add additional data, including the burial plot number and to link to other burials. Having created the duplicate, I would now like to eliminate it. This can be accomplished in one of three ways. You can choose to transfer management of your file to me, delete your file, or transfer my additions to your record and continue its management yourself. If this last option is selected, I will delete my file once you have transferred the data from it. My # is: 25270753. Thanks!

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"

Hello Mark,
I think the way the listings are set up now so that you can add a link to the parents with the grid ID is a great idea. I was wondering if you would consider offering one to link the spouses?

Thanks, Steve
