Bio and Links
Bio Photo 1) First of all, I would like to state that I am a volunteer of Findagrave.com. I have recently noticed on contributor pages, sarcastic remarks to other members. This is TOTALLY UNNECESSARY AND UNACCEPTABLE and should not be tolerated!!! {the delete key is a wonderful invention}
************************************************
2) DO NOT look at my contributor numbers as a FAG hoarder... those numbers are due to hard work, photographing completely local cemeteries and adding data for YOU to locate your ancestors. Since Findagrave.com is affiliated with Ancestry.com, our information that we volunteers have inputted, was added here for you to locate your family ancestors!!

My area does not have a local historical society, so I do this so YOU were able to find your family ancestors !!
************************************************
3) I add as much information that is possible onto a memorial. I add obituaries because it includes a biography of the persons life ~ the only one that most will ever have.
When I add an obituary, I will include the funeral home and or newspaper with credit to them, as per Findagrave.com "suggested guidelines". I am fully aware of Findagrave.com "suggested guidelines" regarding obituaries, however; there is too much valuable information regarding a person's biography, ie: our honored and decorated Veterans

PLEASE do not scorn me about obituaries being posted on Findagrave!!!
I am a subscriber to Ancestry.com, who now own Findagrave.com. I have seen NUMEROUS people who have reused my grave marker photos, obituaries or other data on their Ancestry.com family trees. It's like a pyramid. This is a useful tool for genealogists.
If you have a problem with your photos being reposted, then do not put them on here. It's a simple equation!!!!

For additional information, which Findagrave.com may not be aware of: " Articles published before 1923. Any news article published in the United States before 1923 is in the public domain and you can reprint or republish it in any form you’d like without any copyright concerns at all."
Peter B. Hirtle, archivist and digital information expert at Cornell University.

************************************************
4) DUPLICATES: ONE of my BIGGEST pet peeve is duplicate memorials!! PLEASE LOOK FIRST by doing a thorough search before you create a memorial. Type in the name in the search to see if a memorial already exists.
Be cautious of first and last name spellings.
Most duplicates are in error and not done intentionally.
************************************************
5) FAMILY LINKS:
I am happy to link family members when you request by using the 'Edit' tab.
Before I approve an 'edit', I will try to validate your information before I click 'approve'

If you want information added to a memorial:
go to the memorial, edit tab then use the "suggestion" tab to send me the information that could be added into the "bio section" by me to a memorial.
************************************************
6) TRANSFER MANAGEMENT: If a memorial is of my family, I will not transfer.
I don't mind doing transfers, but one time I had a FAG member request a transfer of ALL of a particular family name from a cemetery...like about 18 of them!!!!!! That is way too extreme and not necessary.
For your extended family members, you may and should consider creating a Virtual Cemetery to your contributor page.

Hello L Evans,

In the obituary you entered for Mrs. Stone there are no dates of the newspaper or dates listed for the funeral service except saying Thursday. Would you by chance know the date (i.e. December 21, 1957). I found it interesting that the burial was to be in the Amberg cemtery in the spring therefore I guessed the death was sometime in perhaps December through February.

Thank you,
Judy Newman

RE: Willem & Maria Wisner
They both lived in Marinette, Marinette County, WI when they died, as did several other family members.

Why would they be buried in Michigan?

The original spelling of his surname is Weezenaar.

Are there other cemeteries in Marinnette where they could have been buried ?

Do you have the name of the local newspaper at the time that I can access online?

I deal with cemetery records all the time and know from experience that they are often times missing much information..especially pre-1900 burials..

Thanks for any help or advice you can offer

Bannow Family
Linda,

My husband and I were recently in Peshtigo to visit the graves of his grandparents. We never realized there are more than one Riverside cemetery, one in Marinette and one in Peshtigo. After finding the right cemetery and asking help from the caretaker we finally found Gust and Mary Bannow and Steve's uncle Norman Bannow. Norman's grave was under two cedar trees and very hidden. I remember you had a difficult time finding this grave and than trimmed the trees to take a photo. I can not thank you enough for all you do for the families of those buried in the Peshtigo area. Thank you for the photos and the obituaries that you have included. Riverside is a very beautiful cemetery and very well then care of, we enjoyed our visit.

Thank you Cindy and Steve Gard Texas

Thank you
Margaret Sawyer was my 2nd cousin. Thank you. I had her married name wrong and never knew where she was buried. Your hard work is very much appreciated. Thank you for helping me connect with my ancestors.

RE: Lachapell
Yes, I caught all three and actually many others. The Lachapelle family married into the Porter and Edelbeck families...it has been a gold letter day!

Thanks again,

Gail
