Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not only do I keep posting and managing family members, I have helped a very good friend of mine in updating and connecting her family. After my mother passed away, I was looking through the scrapbook she had kept and decided to honor her and her friends by updating memorials with the obituaries she had preserved. In other words, in making memorials more meaningful, I try to fill in the “dash” between birth and death by adding information about their life, which is often recapped in an obituary.

I am very open to making corrections or adding information, so if you find anything inaccurate, any changes or additions you'd like made, just let me know. I am also very willing to transfer memorials to any family member.

I have had many wonderful comments from family members that are so excited to not only find their family members, but also to find the information from the obituary with that memorial. Nowadays you can find the newer obituaries online, but the older ones often takes extensive research. I am always glad to help.

What a wonderful site this is and I hope it always remains free of charge to all.

It is really great to receive so much help and cooperation from everyone that's a part of the findagrave family!! Many thanks to all!

RE: Virtual cemetery of MHS
Dear Joanne,
My mother, Shirley Paul Hinz, did graduate in 1952. She may have lost a year when she was ill with polio, so I do believe she graduated with your brother. Thank you so much for your condolences.
In your MHS virtual cemetery, you correctly identified Jack Paul as her father and Manhatten parent, however his wife while he was living in Manhatten was my grandmother, Christina Rye Paul, who should also be included.
Would you happen to know how to update my fathers page, Gordon Hinz? I posted his obituary as a picture as I could not find the means to add it as it appears on my moms page I really appreciate all that you've done here! Thank you!.

Virtual cemetery of MHS
Dear Joanne,
Thank you for all that you have contributed!

I wanted to let you know my mom, Shirley Paul Hinz, is also an alum of MHS, and I would be honored if you would add her to your virtual cemetery for Manhatten people.

Thank you!
