Thank you so much for the two transfers! I really appreciate it.

I am going to send you an edit adding parents for Caroline A Baird. Her last name was misspelled at the cemetery.

Thank you for the memorials you have created for the Civil War veterans in this cemetery. I am researching the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery and have been adding headstone pictures to their memorials and other veterans memorials you created. Please let me know if you have any comments on the photos and thanks again, JIM

Thank you
#76294445 & 60241420 are my ancestors. I am most grateful for you taking the time to not only bless me with these photographs, but all of us descendants. May God bless you for your labors on our behalf.

I shall be adding all of their children and parents as Find-a-graves gives us the numbers. This site is a gift to all genealogists, in my humble opinion. This way others can learn what America is really all about, each of us helping others who can not help themselves.

As a person who is homebound, you have allowed me to visit my deceased relatives. I thank you and all those who do this work.

Memorial# 7930907
My name is Kate and I have been putting together a genealogy for my motherís ancestors. I have interspersed various photographs within the text to accent interesting facts about some ancestors. I plan to publish and print hard copy books for my immediate family and their children. I have included the following photo, Thomas Stanton Memorial# 7930907, that you posted and I donít want to use it in my book without your explicit permission. I will include your credit with the photograph and Find A Grave in the citations.

Last week a friend of mine who works in the printing industry approached me with an offer to print and bind my book at no charge if I allow the printer to use the content in a sample print run of approximately 100 books. They would not be sold but instead would be distributed to demonstrate digital ink jet technology. I would like to accept this offer, however, I cannot do so without gaining your permission to use your posted photograph.

Would you please grant me permission to use your posted photograph, listed above, in my book.

Thank you for your consideration, please respond at your earliest opportunity.

Jess E. Bromley
Sanford Brumley
I know you may question the edit requests I've just submitted in reference to the spellings Bromley and Brumley. The fact of the matter is my family has spelled the name many different ways, especially in England 600+ years ago, which makes tracking them down very difficult. Please see the memorial for Barstow Bromley and see the list of children, #6 on that list is Sanford.
Thank you very much

RE: photo Samuel Arnold
Hi John!

It took me a while to find the photo of Samuel Arnold in Tylerville as it was taken when we first started with Find A Grave in 2012. I wasn't as organized as I am now.

I've placed the photo on his memorial,
# 146744042.

Take care-Pat
