Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm caught up on auto-edits to 8/25 and email edits to about 8/1 (with a few exceptions of transfers and complicated requests). If you don't hear from me it isn't because I'm ignoring you. All of my Find-a-Grave emails go to my email account set up specifically for Find-a-Grave. I only read those messages when I'm sitting down to work on Find-a-Grave - not every day.

FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have an incorrect date without providing a correct date - requiring me to research). I'll get to them eventually but I process the change requests where the submitter has already done the research first. I get a tremendous amount of change requests...

I transfer memorials liberally - just ask. If you want all of a particular last name in a cemetery to take on as a personal project or if you want everyone in the same plot, I can do that too (as long as they are my memorials). I have plot information for most, not all, of my memorials. I've rethought this and have decided not to make out-of-guideline transfers to members who insist on guideline only transfers when transferring their own memorials to which they have no relation.

Thank you for all of the corrections.

Obituaries - copyright laws are murky in regards to obituaries and Find-a-Grave's new policies don't really clear it up. I prefer not to post a word-for-word transcription of a newer obituary - a summary is better. Regardless, I will remove names of possible living people (for privacy) before posting.

Please don't leave change or transfer requests on my message board. It's extremely difficult to keep up with these types of requests and I miss most of them. Requests should be made with the edit button on the memorial

Looking for someone interested in translating Latvian historical records.

Thank you!!!

Wm. Cahill Memorial 84486060
I would like to send you some information for you to review regarding this memorial. I see you have his age as 34 but the tombstone doesn't reflect that. I think the tombstone date is wrong. Someone must have made a mistake either the cutter or the person writing the information down. I know this can happen as my father's tombstone read 1919-which was really my mom's birthdate. The information I have is an obit and also the 1900 Census record. After you read this information if you feel comfortable you could put it on his memorial page. That way people could make up their own mind. You won't be able to use the obit only parts because there is a copyright on it.
Here is my e-mail Thank you for considering this.

Catherine Kates
Thank you for your great work! I request the transfer of Catherine Kates #87725952. The current posting is thread bare because her life was a complete mystery. Her grandson from Wales asked me to discover what happened to her after she left Wales in 1913. The grandson and his father had been trying to discover her fate for over 20 years. Fortunately, I was able to determine that she (Catherine Reardon) immigrated to Winnipeg Canada, married Frederick Kates, moved to Detroit and finally to San Francisco. If you prefer to keep this record I would be happy give you all the information.
Thank you!

Joseph N. Herbert (90124134)
Thank you for all of the work you have done in Find A Grave.

Please correct the info for Joseph Herbert. He was not the son of Catherine Purcell Duke (90122150) & Lemuel Gip Duke (90122151). He was the husband of Estelle Duke Herbert (90124131) who is the child of of Catherine & Lemuel. Again, thanks for all that you have done.

memorial # 90200707
This memorial is my grandmother Eleanor Theresa Swan, maiden name Small. She was born in 1875 in Essex England. Also interned in the same vault are the remains of my grandfather Cecil John Swan. For years we were told that the wall in which this vault was located had fallen down and could not be located. Does it still stand? I will be happy to accept transfer if you wish. Ed Swan

Fred J Williams
I live in MN I am not completely sure I have the correct Fred J. Williams, Do you know if he had a wife Emma Madden Williams? she passed away 18 Nov 1921. I have her obit. It is possible that he married again. They had 2 children. or is it possible to write to the cemetery office? Thank you for any help or info.
