I have just now submitted edits to link Mrs. Snyder's parents memorials with hers. While I have not found a birth certificate for her yet (my wife's family, and I have just begun working on it within the last week), I can send you a copy of her youngest sisters obituary notice, if you would want to use it as verification. The obituary notice lists the parents and all of the siblings. Just let me know.

Thank you for your time.

Elizabeth Schurtz, Scholl Harmon #45097067
Hi, still working on the German Reformed Cemetery in Greencastle, PA; I see that you added a memorial #45097067 for Elizabeth; I cannot find her grave in Greencastle but in your information on the grave, you say she is in the Reformed Church in Chambersburg. Chambersburg is about 30 miles north of Greencastle, so maybe you got the wrong graveyard. What do you think? thanks, Jack

duplicate names
Hi I mistakenly added a grave for Elizabeth Duffy; It was assigned 175437307 AND she is the same as your Elizabeth Duffy 67531067. I can delete my addition or you can delete yours to get this correct. Note that I added a plot location and information about her husband. If you could delete yours it would give better data but, up to you. thanks, Jack

Private Benjamin Beach
Hello. I've been researching my Beach line and had a question about this Benjamin Beach. I was curious where you learned about his possible family ties. Was it through the cemetery records?

Thank you,

Reformed Church Graveyard, Greencastle, Franklin, PA
Dear Birdman; are you in charge of the informational page for the Reformed Church Graveyard in Franklin County, PA? If so, can I get the Graveyard transferred to me? For the last year, I have been working on the graves, mapping, and transcribing the graves in this graveyard. The Reformed Church; now the Grace United Church approved of my work and I would like to get all the gravestones entered and remove the find a grave incorrect memorials that are not in the cemetery.

My mapping of the graveyard is almost finished; I have divided the cemetery into 6 Rows and 12 sections and then numbered those graves in the defined squares. I would like to add that map to the Graveyard site.

I will go through all the photo requests that are outstanding and fulfill those requests if the graves have been found. So far, there are over 330 graves in the cemetery and I have identified about 2/3 of them. I have also found about 4 Revolutionary War Veterans, 4 War of 1812 Veterans, 6 Union and 1 Confederate Civil War Veterans. These numbers will change. Thanks for your help in transferring the cemetery to me if at all possible. Jack Webb

Re photo request
I'm a newbie to find a grave. In asking for a cemetery photo do I send you the memorial# and you
upload it or how does this work.
Thanks a bunch.

Thank you for transferring most of the duplicate memorials. To help identify the others I sent you individual requests. Your attention to this matter sincerely appreciated.

Beth Jacob Cemetery memorials created in Rosedale, Berkeley Co., WVA
With good intent and probably because you were unaware that there are 2 cemeteries side by side in Berkeley County, WV you created many duplicate Find A Grave entries that need to be deleted. They are causing confusion among researchers, especially those on ancestry dot com. You made the entries under the larger cemetery called Rosedale. The graves are actually situated in Beth Jacob Cemetery. Beth Jacob is situated next to Rosedale, but is not part of Rosedale. At one time a fence separated the two cemeteries but was removed for mowing purposes. In most or all cases your duplicate entries were made a year or more after the Find A Grave entries made under Beth Jacob Cemetery. You can find the duplicates, probably about 40 or more, by comparing the 53 Beth Jacob entries against those you made in Rosedale. Your prompt attention to this matter is greatly appreciated so that additional mistakes will not be made by reearchers on ancestry and other websites as well as in personal family trees. Thank you. (P.S. this issue came to my attention again this week when a volunteer looking up an obit for me in Baltimore referred me to your Find A Grave entry at Rosedale instead of the Beth Jacob entry.)

With good intent and probably because you were unaware that there are 2 cemeteries side by side in Berkeley County, WV. The larger cemetery is Rosedale. Situated next to it but not legally part of Rosedale is a Jewish Cemetery called Beth Jacob Cemetery which at one time was known as: Bash Yankev Cemetery. Until late part of 20th century, a fence separated the two cemeteries. The fence is now gone for mowing and perpetual care purposes. The Jewish Community owned a section of land that Rosedale cemetery committee wanted. An agreement was made between the two parties that the Jewish community would deed the land that did not contain burials sites) to Rosedale in return for perputual care the Jewish Cemetery. The Beth Jacob cemetery was not deeded to Rosedale. Therefore, all the Jewish graves that you have entered in Rosedale should be deleted. Those graves are not in Rosedale. Most or all of the Jewish memorials you inadvertently included in the Rosedale enumeation are duplicates of Find A Grave memorials that were created a year or two before your entries. Please delete the duplicate memorials entered under Rosedale. The duplicates causes confusion and users are picking up your entry thinking it is the correct one. This kind of experince happened just this past week. Thank you for your cooperation.

Ruan Huffer Motter
Birdman, unless it's one you're interested in, I'd be happy to have memorial 84625311, Ruan Huffer Motter transferred to me. She's my Great Great Great Grandmother, and I have more than a passing interest in maintaining her memorial. Although Ruan passed away nearly 150 years ago, it's been passed down to the current generation what a kind and loving person she was. In fact, there are no less than eleven of her descendants that have carried on her name, including my own daughter Emmarie Ruan Green. In any case, I'm grateful for the time you've taken to fill findagrave with your work. Regards, Darren Green.
