Bio and Links
To whom it may concern, my bio is my bio, I have been a findagrave member for quite a few years. I am not a name collector like others, but I am territorial and would like to be able to place memorials up for people in my area (Ashland, Fountain Springs, Gordon, Girardville, Lavelle, Locustdale)that are in the local newspapers and funeral home websites, but alas I can't, someone from far away keeps putting them up.

If you are going to put memorials up and if the info is provided in the obit (aka-bio), please enter it. Don't just leave the places born & died blank because it is quicker for you to enter them and grab them before someone else does.
Do it correctly or don't do it at all.

I know my area (North of the mountain) of Schuylkill county very well and what I don't know I make sure to find out.

And UPDATE, UPDATE, I am slowly but surely adding cemmie records for a certain cemetery in my area, I have the letters A, B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J, & L done so far.
I have also transcribed the St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Middleport, Pennsylvania
Helped with Odd Fellows in Girardville; St Joseph's (Old & New), Ashland; and St Mauritius (Old & New), also Ashland. Sts Peter & Paul, Port Carbon. With more to come as time & weather permits. Upcoming Citizens Cemetery, Lavelle.
Big Thanks to fellow deceased Findagraver- Keith McKain, for entering all the pictures and memorials that you did for me.
If it were not for you entering them for me, those 2700 plus memorials in Schuylkill co area wouldn't be up there now and Big Thanks to FAG, for turning them over to me to maintain.
Hugs & Thanks to Peggy Scully who is up there in Heaven now, I'll take care of your memorials.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber & Robert Miller whose numerous memorials I also manage.

Eddie mace
Thank you for taking the time to create a memorial for my brother Eddie and allowing me to manage it. He is thought of and missed every day. Did you happen to know Eddie?

Just came across your memorial for Charles F. Bolesta (153933505) and I'm curious if you are connected to this family. My husband is a descendent of Charles and Anna Bolesta, Charles F.'s grandparents.

RE: Sarah Drum
looks ok or you could also add a new memorial in Ever Green since that is where she is and note that she was first interred in another cemetery

RE: Whoops...

About the Schuylkill Vital Records...I don't think I can get access to them at my library. I live in California. Do you know anywhere on the internet those records could be found?

I'm going to request a photo for Bridget Sweeney.

I meant James Bernard Sweeney, son of Bridget Joyce and Patrick Sweeney.

James Bernard Joyce
I saw that you are maintaining this memorial. I'm researching the Joyce family as my maternal great grandmother was a Mary Joyce from Ireland. She and her husband, John Malarkey, first lived in Ashland and later in Girardville. (They're buried in St. Joseph Cemetery in Girardville.)

I'm hoping you are a relative of James Joyce who could help with some family information. I believe that the Joyces in the Girardville area are all related, but I have no proof.

Do you have any info that would be of any help to me? I'm trying to locate where in Ireland they came from.

Let me explain, I sometimes use Tim's computer and I neglected to log off as I normally do (I don't have PC of my own). He didn't realize it and...
