RE: George S Beers
You're very welcome on receiving the obit. I just submitted an edit for his wife. This is why I do it, to help families learn more about their ancestors.

Hi Joan,
I added a photo of George Balliet Frankenfield, Jr. and George Balliet Frankenfield. Have you ever been up to the Frankenfield covered bridge near the old homestead?

RE: 138867602 error in wife's name
Hi Joan,
Thank you for updating my mother's maiden name so quickly. Yes, please transfer George B. Frankenfield, Jr. to me. You are correct, I am just starting out in Find A Grave. I have some photos of my father I can post. Thank you for your interest in my side of the family!
Yours truly,

138867602 error in wife's name
Hello Frankenfield relation! This is a son of George Balliet Frankenfield, Jr. and Nancy Ann (Glick) {you had incorrectly listed Mother's maiden name as Guth - that is the maiden name of my Aunt Dolores M. Frankenfield [wife of William L. Frankenfield]}.

Please correct Nancy's maiden name to Glick.

George Balliet Frankenfield lll was my name. Mother remarried after George Jr was killed aboard Eastern Flight 375 at Boston, MA. She married Norman Wesley Skinner of Malvern, PA. My brother Michael Andrew Frankenfield and I both added Skinner to our names at that time. The family moved to CA and later to Minnesota, where Mike and I now live. That is why you see me as George S. I hope this helps you.

Thank you, George

You asked for her to be linked to Joshua & Matilda Elizabeth Cretin. However under Joshua's bio it states his daughters name as Mary Elizabeth and this ladies middle initial in J.
So that is my question to you, are you sure this is a legit link?

FAG novelties

Have you checked out the new-and-improved Find A Grave webpage via the "preview now"? I did, and the results are horrific. Whereas all the uploading and search tools have always been conveniently located within a couple of inches of each other on the screen, the new-and-improved version requires navigating/scrolling over acres of screen. This will easily quadruple the amount of time one needs to spend on creating a memorial page. For an individual page, I suppose that won't amount to much, but for people such as me who canvass entire cemeteries with a camera, it would be a nightmare.

On their "Beta" page they have conveniently left a feedback box so they can hear from actual users. I have already told them that I have a good 20,000 names/pics waiting in in my computer for eventual upload. But if they go through with this outrage, I'm going to find a new hobby.

If you haven't left them a word, please consider doing so.

Father Al
