Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for almost 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)

Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).

I share with many a belief that we are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them. As another member stated, the ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away - regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Many thanks to all who have provided photos or edits. It truly 'takes a village'.

Working within the FAG rules, I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. Please use the Edit tab.

You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.

Enjoy, Joe

I am new to researching my family history and see you left flowers for my uncle Judd Fokes Slosson. He was my mothers half brother. Their mother was Lillian Adele Fokes-Slosson-Monroe. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Was Judd married? Children? Whereabouts of another brother Ray? Thank you for any help, Laryn

Good afternoon.
I noticed you left flowers at the memorials for these 2 people. Are you related to them, by chance?
I'm trying to find a direct descendant of theirs.
Thanks for your time.

Thanks again. Also wanted to mention that Dorothy's father John was 2nd husband to my great-grandmother, Isabelle Barber Edgar-Bennett. I have additional info on John as well as a ton on the Isabelle if you're interested.

Best regards, Joe

Thank you very much for promptly editing her memorial. Nice to see that one family unit is a little closer to being completely connected.

Sincerely, Joe
