Bio and Links
Bio Photo Have been busy taking photos. I am especially interested in Lithuanian Genealogy and Nanticoke Genealogy. My mother came from Minersville and my father from Nanticoke. If anyone needs a particular headstone (Nanticoke and Lithuanian cemeteries in Schuylkill or Luzerne Counties), please post then send me an email. I will be on the lookout.

I have a lot of pictures to post yet. I am a little slow because I am trying to enter relationships and any additional information I find. I am also spending a lot of time putting in edits for the mass posters, which is very discouraging. FindAGrave should stop rewarding people for their massive postings of graves. Incomplete entries creates more work for those who spend hours walking around cemeteries taking photos. No thanks are given to the editors.

If you can copy the photos, anyone is more than welcome. I am just glad that I can help.

Happy Hunting!

RE: Pictures UWE
Hi Gwyn,
I first started to help people locate their families and take volunteer pictures, but I quickly discovered the POWER of Find A Grave. I also saw that the cemetery records were flawed - people missing from our records, people not in the correct location, but most importantly I saw that the grave stones were rapidly deteriorating. I compared Find A Grave tombstone pictures taken in 2006 to today and now the stones are unreadable. My personal opinion is that we must document everything possible, while we still have time.
Not everyone is onboard with me at the UWE, but I know this is the best for the UWE. I am shooting all volunteer requests and adding plot locations. Then I plan to systematically shoot every marker and ensure they are in Find A Grave and cemetery records. I may ask you for assistance as I get agreement from others, as the tide is changing at the UWE. Hope you are well - Jerry - pls delete this message from your message board - ;)

RE: Hertzne versus Hertzke
Thank you so much for taking looking into this for me. I never realized that when I transferred management to someone that they didn't have the option of deleting the memorial. If they won't delete it for you, do you have the option of changing the last name? Meanwhile, I'll keep a good thought that this will be resolved easily.

Hertzne versus Hertzke
I asked someone to take a photo for me of my great uncle, William Hertzke (memorial number 144936635) at Union-West End Cemetery. He told me that when he went to post the photo, there was another memorial for the same grave but it was a duplicate record with a different spelling for a William Hertzne (memorial number 24104156). Everything else looks the same. It looks like you maintain that memorial and the headstone looks the same but the name should definitely be Hertzke. I have a copy of the U.S. Headstone Applications for Military Veterans and first person knowledge since that's how I've spelled my last name until I got married. :)

Since I've already linked my memorial with the rest of our relatives, would you please be so kind as to remove yours? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

First thank you for the photo.

I believe there is an error on Wife, Eilen Mary Keegan Rice. She can't be his wife. She lived 1944-2001 and Lamont lived 1883-1938 before her birth.

Thank you again for your time and interested in preserving our history.
