Linking a person to their parents

What is taking so long to link a person to their parents. I have 3 outstanding requests to link 3 of my relatives to their parents?

61577825 61577792 61577806

Is there anything I can do to speed up the process?

Hi Layla -

Would you consider transfering Alois and Louise Niezgodzki (it is spelled ZKI not SKI).

They were my grandparents.

Thank you for Considering!

Angela Brosso - Murdered
There is an article in AZ. Republic today. She was 22 in 1992 so would have been born in 1970 I believe Montini at (602) 444-8978 or can give you more information to update her memorial. So sad.

Rest in peace Dave!
Dave and I served together in the U.S. Army 7th Signal Brigade in Mannheim, Germany in the late 70's.

He was a great friend. Quick to laugh, always there if you needed him and was fun to be around.

We miss you Dave!

Eleanor Morrison Lawson
Tinsley and extended families
Thank you so much for your work and efforts to Find A Grave. Because of you and others like you I am able to see my extended families graves. I started my journey in genealogy back in the 1980's and at that time was able to travel and visit the various cemeteries. Today because of age and health I am unable to do so but you and others have made it possible for me to visit.
Thank you deeply. I hope you will not mind my making copies of your photos for my Ancestry and Family Tree Maker Family files. I am working frantically trying to leave a good trail for my family and others to visit their family heritage.
The Lord has allowed me to stay this long and labor and I am sure He has allowed the help of so many of His "angels"
Many thanks,
Eleanor Morrison Lawson (

Hi, I have inadvertently created a duplicate memorial for this individual at Masonic. That memorial has links and a gravestone photo. You could either delete your memorial or update it from mine and let me know and then I will delete mine.
Please let me know which you would prefer.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

William C. Gilliam
Hi Layla - I am a descendant of William Gilliam (Memorial# 6155671) and just posted a couple of edits for you to consider. Although the marker is engraved as William G. Gilliam, that was an engraver's error. There is a large volume of evidence to prove that his middle initial was C. Most family members suspect it was for his father's name Carroll. Informed researchers will be searching for William C. Gilliam. There is also reliable evidence that he was born in Hot Spring County, Arkansas, not Hot Springs, Ark. as the tombstone reads. The city of Hot Springs is in the nearby county of Garland. He died of tuberculosis in the Woodmen of the World Hospital in San Antonio but his body was returned to his home in Phoenix for burial in the Masonic cemetery of Greenwood. Thanks so much for considering these small changes for accuracy's sake.

Oscar G. Michall #8586942
Thank you for the transfer! I meant to contact you much earlier, but somehow time slipped by. I've been doing more research, and my sources are very certain "Oscar" is actually "Oly", my great grandfather. Local notices in the papers from 1918, match with the death certificate, and the family records I had. It's wonderful to know where he was laid to rest!

Since you originally added the memorial, I wondered if the records you used listed the plot location. I would love to have a copy of a plot map or other document if you have it, or if you can tell me where to find them. I appreciate the work you've done on the Centerville Cemetery! I've been looking for my great grandfather's grave for a long while, and I'm so happy to have finally found it! Thank you!

Eva Mallon
This lady was my grandmother. I would like to add her complete dates of birth and death, as well as her other three children. In fact, I would like to have "ownership" of her grave. Also, her husband, George Mallon was my grandfather. I would like to do the same for him and add the additional children. I also know their parents' names and dates of birth and death. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I sent a recent request through "Edit" but wanted to let you know here, as several of my photo requests have recently bounced back. I would love to manage his memorial if possible. I am hoping the photo request will also be picked up, but didn't know if you are in that area. I hope you can help with this. Thanks!

Layla, I just found a picture of my great grandmother's grave (Mary Wendell Banta) that you took. I just wanted to take time to thank you for your time and kindness. I do not believe anyone has been able to visit Mary's grave site since she passed away. It means a lot to me to be able to see the stone. I hope to visit in person one day.
Thank you!
