Please be aware that Find-a-Grave is not my full-time occupation. I am not retired but am a working professional whose work and other obligations can demand a great deal of time. I work with F-A-G whenever I have time available to do so. What this means is that sometimes many weeks or months can go by before I can make updates or transfers for individuals. If you leave me updates or transfer requests, please be patient. They will not be discarded or ignored but will remain in my inbox, and they will be processed as I have a chance and from oldest to newest.

James F Ganiear Find A Grave Memorial# 47174724
Which month(s) are correct for birth and death; the months typed in the memorial or the months reflected on the photo of the tombstone? The memorial uses November and the tombstone says October?

James Clark "Jim" Barnett
Keener Cemetery, Greene Co., PA
Hello. I have been looking at the memorials for this particular cemetery. I see you have posted many images. Can you tell me if you photographed the entire lot? My 2X Great Grandfather (Gideon Fleming Long)is buried here, but I am searching for the location of his son Benjamin H. Long. Distant cousins tell me the believe he is buried in Greene County, but they do not know where. Figured I'd start with his parents location. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi, I just made a memorial for Charles Sproat after taking photos of his gravestone in Washington Cemetery. I was looking to see if I could find his parents, when I came across your memorial. Apparently, he was not interred in Greene County, but in Washington. I will transfer mine to you, if you'd like, since you made yours first and have his obituary and family information. I just wanted to let you know what I found.

Howard Porter
Dear JSF1,

I'm researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. I can't quite read the small lettering on the headstone for Howard Porter (Find A Grave Memorial# 11789733). Might you be able to read it?

Thank you,

Bryan Anderson

Ann Marie McLaughlin burial site.
You contacted me to let me know that the Calvary Cemetery That placed Ann Marie in was an error and suggested the alternative: "She is far more likely buried in the huge Calvary Cemetery complex at Queens County, NY belonging to the Archdiocese of New York." There are many McLaughlins in that cemetery, so the odds are excellent that it's the correct Calvary. Thank you for the information. I appreciate it.

Yes, that's what it shows. I changed it when you brought it to my attention a couple of weeks back. I guess my reply didn't get through to you. Thanks very much for the info. I like to be accurate.

Re John Hiller #150264016
Have been working on Find A Grave photo requests this morning. Not sure if I thanked you, so, this is what I put on his memorial.

"9 April 2016: Success our photo request has been filled,
& our family is here. Many thanks to our Find A Grave photographer jsf1. M O'B 28 May "

Now you have some idea of our feelings for your photographic work for Find A Grave memorials, & how I feel about your work for John.

Thank you so very much.
