Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Bradford button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Bradford. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated.

Your site is amazing!!  Almost all of my ancestors have resided in Bradford,  Chemung, Tioga (NY), or Tompkins (NY) Counties for at least 200 years, so your site has been very helpful to my research.  (And I'm sure I still haven't gotten through all of it!).  The wealth of information is great, and it has helped me springboard to other sources and places.  What caught my attention today is the listing for my g-g-g grandfather Eber White, in Valley Home Cemetery.

The link is:

It is listed as "Unreadable White", with a "what is readable might be Richard White Eben."  I have not made it down to that cemetery yet (as I just found out he is buried there through your site), so I haven't gotten the chance to look at the stone.  I am from Lansing, NY in Tompkins County.  Through census searches and contact with other relatives I have discovered that his name is Eber.  I have more research to do yet to find out what his full name is (Richard Eber, Eber Richard).  His wife is Rhoda Jane (Hamilton) White, and I see that she is buried there too.  I can't wait to get down there now!  Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that the "Eben" should read Eber, so that if you have time (I don't know how you do it!) it can be changed.  Thank you so much for such a wonderful site.

After looking at the pictures of Valley Home Cemetery, I realized it is the cemetery I visited last year!  I took pictures and one is nearly the same as one on the site.  At the time, I visited it to see the stones of my great great grandparents, Frank and Nellie White.  I can't believe I would have over looked Eber and Rhoda White's stones, but I wasn't looking for them at the time.  I'll definitely get back down there soon, now that I have more to look for!  It's a little over 45 minutes south from where I live.  I also wanted to note that Frank White (1865-1952), Nellie E. White (1867-1917), and their son Richard E. White (1892-1908) are not listed in the Valley Home Cemetery Listing on  I'm not sure if the list is not complete yet, or they were overlooked, but I wanted to point that out, so that if you or someone else has time they can be added.  Thanks for all of your help.

     In looking at the names from Valley Home I couldn't help notice my Grandparents weren't listed.  Their names were William D. and Helen E. Wilkinson.  William was laid to rest March 1976 and Helen in March 1983.  At that time they were in the very last row left of center to the best of my recollection.  Can you help me find them?

I'd appreciate any guidiance you could give.

Thank you.
