HELPFUL NOTES:
*************
1. Cemeteries have spousal duplicated photographs. This means a photo
which also has the spouse's maiden name showing, is duplicated and when one
searches using the onboard search engine, for a surname, the spouse's
surname will be reported as a separate "search result".
*
2. If your "search engine" keyword is the same as a city, town, village,
township then here is a valuable tip. *CONCERN:* If your "search engine"
keyword you are using is say: pembrok* then your search will pick up all the
pembroke surnames....*BUT* ...it will also pick up all the website pages
where pembroke is used as a meta name. *SOLUTION:* Change your keyword to
pembrok1 and the search engine will only pick up the gravemarkers with the
pembroke surname.
*
3. Should you wish to help out with this ongoing huge project financially
or in other ways, please contact Murray Pletsch at mailto:

Bye for now.....Murray
