Hi Virgil

You received a message a couple of weeks ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but we have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Darren :-)

I created the profile for Kester-1832 not realizing there already was a profile for him,I was guessing at his age. Your Oliver Kester profile didn't come up until I added the daughter that married a Drumheller and by that time I forgot about the profile I created. I'm working off of gravestones in the Brainerd cemetery which is the same church that my Oliver Kesters daughter was baptized in.

Hi Virgil,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

Hello Virgil,

On Aug 24, 2018 I requested access to my Great Aunt (D'Andrea-109) profile to make some corrections - her mother is not linked (Vacanti-72) and add her husband and children. I also private messaged you last week and have yet to hear a response. Please either open the profile so I can do this or add me to the trusted list.

Thank you in advance for your prompt response.

Thanks Hun,

I do not care what anyone says, This is the very best team around. This team has dealt with homelessness, pneunonia, friends and family dropping in, plans changing, computer issues and more. We all still got in and sourced as best we could.

You are an amazingly awesome team and I am so blessed to have you all in Legacy Heirs. I hope to have you all back next year.

Atta boy for you cousin Virgil, glad you did proper proof reading. I have many dozens, hundreds, possibly thousands in my files, And bound to be some flaws. That's why my take home pay always seems light.

Some of my blunders will be whoppers. This one not so much. I had noted that page 152 was what was called out in the search string, and that delivers digital image of pgs 152 and 153 also which I hadn't made note of. Anyway its the Shotwells and Kesters that are important. Have you ever been to Eden NY? I've been pretty darn close, several miles. some great farm land. This time of year, the snow can really pile up. When the Shotwells-Kesters were there it was the incredible Eire Canal completion that gave a boost to Upstate NY.

We make a good team, thanks again.

Hi Virgil :) Thanks for the awesome message you left me a couple weeks ago. It made my day! Sorry for not responding sooner but I was swamped with the Clean-a-Thon and am just now playing catch-up.
