Make-a-List Monday: Mary in its various forms

I thought I’d do a Make-a-List Monday for girls and women who have the first name Mary, or some variant of Mary. The various forms of Mary were the most popular female name in the Christian world for 400 years. Because the name was so common, a lot of girls named Mary went by a nickname, or by their middle name, by their first and middle names together.

In 1947 in the United States, “Linda” ousted “Mary” from its position as most popular name. But Mary had the last laugh. Last year, according to the Social Security administration, Mary ranked 124, with 2,604 newborn girls given that name; Linda ranked #671, with just 423 babies named that.

For this list I’m using Nameberry‘s list of Mary’s international variations and list of stylish variations (that is, nicknames), so if you don’t like my choices, blame Nameberry, not me.

If the MP’s name has a * next to it, it means the person is male. John Wayne’s real first name was Marion, and regarding the “Marian” thing, Nameberry says that in Polish, “Marian” is a form of the indubitably male name Marius.

And, of course, I include the usual caveat that I might have missed a few.

A little help here, again?

[EDIT: Several wonderful angels came through. Thank you so much!]

Twice now I’ve asked you guys for help about this: when I go to the Minnesota state missing persons page and try clicking on any of their PDF posters, I get an error message. I’ve tried my PC, Michael’s PC, my Kindle Fire and my iPhone and get the same stupid error message each time.

Y’all came through and sent me PDFs I can read of the posters, but there are some new ones now. So can you come through again? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

Specifically, I need the ones on the following list. (And yes, I know that many  of those on this list are already on Charley; it’s just that I haven’t seen the Minnesota state posters for them, and I want to make sure I don’t miss anything.)

  • Noel Dalluge
  • Theodore Dengerud
  • Kevin Ellsworth
  • Donna Ingersoll
  • John Jacobson
  • Sandra Jacobson
  • Kyle David Jansen
  • Christopher Kerze
  • Daniel Klein
  • David Klein
  • Kenneth Klein
  • Kenneth Scott Kleppen
  • Janet Kramer
  • Hang Lee
  • Daniel Patrick Maleska
  • Victoria Owczynsky
  • Barbara Paciotti
  • April Pease
  • Eric Peterson
  • Sharice Pollard
  • James Tennison

Make-a-List Monday: Runaways, 10-20 years gone

Last week’s list of runaways who’d been missing at least 20 years got a lot of shares on Charley’s Facebook page. I thought I’d do a list of runaways who’ve been missing between 10 and 20 years — that is, between 1996 and 2006. And as I did last week, these classifications are my own.

Make-a-List Monday: Runaways twenty years’ gone

Kids run away all the time. Some of them stay gone for years. Very few of them, however, stay gone forever. This list is of Charley Project cases classified as runaways where the child has been missing for a minimum of twenty years.

I’m using my own classifications here, not the NCMEC’s, because their classifications are often wrong — they’ve got Mitchell Darlington listed as a runaway, for example, when he almost certainly drowned.

  1. Jorge Acosta, 12, missing since 1992
  2. Lurline Michelle Bergeron, 14, missing since 1991

  5. Niki Diane Britten, 15, missing since 1969
  6. Mary Jo Burnette, 16, missing since 1984
  7. Shawna Chavez, 14, missing since 1994
  8. Rose Lena Cole, 15 or 16, missing since 1972 or 1973
  9. Melinda Karen Creech, 13, missing since 1979
  10. Kenneth Allen Daily, 16, missing since 1985
  11. Brenda Sue Davidson, 13, missing since 1974

Behind the scenes

What it looks like I did today:

  1. Updated ten already-existing casefiles; most of them minor bits off of NamUs.

What else I did today:

  1. Ran dozens of MPs’ names through various databases and Google to see whether they’re still missing or not.
  2. Purged 27 casefiles.
  3. Made minor edits to a lot of existing casefiles, like correcting typos and such.
  4. Made some edits to a dozen or so MP pictures in existing cases to make them look better (at least better to me). I do things like change the saturation so the skin doesn’t look orange or whatever.
  5. Added a few tiny (hidden) updates to a couple of casefiles.
  6. Bookmarked around 30ish cases I need to add to Charley.
  7. Bought a couple of archived newspaper articles to get information to add to cases
  8. Sent a few Charley-related emails and replied to some. (Though NOT all the emails by any means. I suck at correspondence, really.)
  9. Sent messages via Charley’s Facebook page.
  10. Read new comments on Charley’s Facebook page and “liked” most of them.
  11. Replied to some comments on my blog and some on Charley’s Facebook page.
  12. Finished an in-progress Make-a-List Monday.
  13. Wrote an entire, new verrry long Make-a-List Monday.
  14. Checked the news for new, relevant missing persons articles and read them all.
  15. Added the aforementioned missing persons articles to the Facebook page and bookmarked the articles I will need for future updates.

I’m hoping to put up new cases tomorrow. I’ve promised to add some specific ones and haven’t yet.

Also, I want y’all to understand I am not bragging, nor am I complaining. It’s just that someone recently commented saying they liked knowing a bit of what goes on behind the scenes. Well, this is what goes on.
