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,M,N,O, & P 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.

Are you related to Ellen Shaffer buriec in st. Mary's st. Clair PA

I think she is a Purcell and was married to a Stephen Shaffer. Spellings vary in this family.

Thank you.

I see a death date for David Llewellyn daughter, Hannah. However I have heron the 1880 census married with her two children living with David and Sarah. This can not be his daughter. Thank you.

What is the problem?
Why have you refused to transfer any more memorials back to me? I created these memorials and I'm the one who went to the cemeteries to take the pictures. These memorials were improperly transferred to you and it's not like you've done anything with them anyway.

Please transfer this memorial back to me. I shouldn't have to ask you to make changes to a memorial I created.

Thank you so much!

Memorial Transfer
Hi Joanne,

I was wondering if you would transfer my grandfather's memorial page to me. He is #182402477.
