I just learned of Kevin's death today, such sad news. We were friends right after high school and I knew him when he lived in SF.
Do you know how he passed?
Thanks for any info., much thanks.

THANK YOU so much for taking the time to photograph the individual stone for Edith and William. The close up photo helps to verify the dates on the memorial. Your time is appreciated by far more than you will ever realize. Keep it up!!

RE: Carl Rebenstorf + 3 Infants
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Thanks for striving to keep Find A Grave an accurate resource for researchers.

Carl Rebenstorf + 3 Infants
You wrote (three times):
This appears to be a duplicate of Carl Rebenstorf (1876-1879) - would you consider deleting?

My reply:
The large marker that shows Carl's name and information refers to him as "Son of J & C Rebenstorf". Below Carl's information, the marker says "Children of J & C Rebenstorf". In addition to an individual marker for Carl near the large marker, I found 3 unique markers that were inscribed with the word "Infant", and photos of these unique infant markers are on the memorials. Memorial Nos. 111967619, 111967620 & 111967622 are not duplicates of Carl Rebenstorf.

Violet Fuschini
Not related, I just do a lot of work on people that are buried at Forest Lawn. I did a little research and found out that Violet and Rasmus had two children, don't know what became of the son but it looks like the daughter died in 2006 in Alaska.

Violet Fuschini
Hi Jan,

I am about to fill your photo request for Violet's marker, but I did not find Jon Fuschini near her, and he is not listed on the Forest Lawn website. She is buried next to a Ludwig Rasmussen, who I am guessing is her first husband. I am going to post a picture of their markers together on both memorials. If you can confirm for me that Ludwig was her first husband I will link them together, otherwise I will research it myself.

RE: Hans & Ragnhild Motland - Normal Hill
I agree - it would be so much better if they all had a marker! I know I would appreciate it! Even those little funeral home markers are better than nothing!

RE: Hans & Ragnhild Motland - Normal Hill
Hi Jan, the note has been added. I was waiting to hear back from a friend that photographed that entire section, to see if she found them in another row, but she didn't.

I did notice several gaps between some of the stones, so they are probably there. Just couldn't figure out exactly where.

Sigrid Theressa Foss
you requested transfer of Sigrid Theressa Foss who is the wife of your relative and you'd like to link her to family.

You don't need an out of guidelines transfer to link her to her family. With the new edit system, all you have to do is click the edit tab which is next to the share tab. it will open a new window, then click the relationship link and you can edit it yourself...

Pleas familiarize yourself with the findagrave facts posted below:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in. [Top]

What if a member will not transfer my relative to me?
If the memorial in question is a direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you and the original submitter is not direct family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.
Please remember that there are thousands of contributors to Find A Grave, and it is highly likely that some of those contributors will actually be part of your family tree and share some of your ancestors.
Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Are you familiar with how the virtual cemetery works ?

Virtual Cemeteries

What is a Virtual Cemetery?
A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page. [Top]

How do I create a virtual cemetery and add memorials to it?
To create a virtual cemetery, go to your contributor tools(left hand column after logging in). Once there click on the edit button across from "my virtual cemeteries". Then you will be able to add a new virtual cemetery or edit any that you have already created. Once you have created a virtual cemetery it will show up in your contributor tools. Go to the memorial that you would like to add to your virtual cemetery. Underneath the memorial's burial information is a link that says "Edit Virtual Cemetery" and "What's this". Click on "Edit Virtual Cemetery" and it will bring you to your list of virtual cemeteries. There is a box next to each virtual cemetery that you have created. Check the box(click the mouse on it) on the virtual cemetery you would like to add this memorial to and then click "save changes". This will add the person to that virtual cemetery. [Top]

RE: Sally Adler/Alder
You said you found a transcription of the cemetery. Is there a plot map online somewhere? I tried to find one but couldn't. It would be helpful in the future if anyone else wants to find someone buried there.

Added by Dana on May 19, 2014 8:48 PM

RE: Sally Adler/Alder
Oh darn! That would explain why I didn't find it!

She died pretty young. Is she a relative of yours?

Added by Dana on May 19, 2014 8:46 PM

RE: Sally Adler
Ok, so I may have found her. I did a very thorough search of the cemetery and I did not find Sally Peterson Adler or Sally Peterson or Sally Adler. What I did find is a a
Sally Moore with the correct birth and death dates for the Sally you are looking for. What do you think? Might it be her? She was the only Sally I found in the whole cemetery.

Added by Dana on May 19, 2014 3:42 PM

Sally Adler

I went down to the Bothell Pioneer Cemetery after claiming your request, it's very close to my house. I went through about 1/3 of the cemetery before it started to rain and haven't found her yet. I'll go back tomorrow or the next day depending on weather. If I don't find it tomorrow I will call the city on Monday and see if they have a plot map. The exercise is nice though and it's a very peaceful spot. =)

I did find some headstones with the last name Peterson, but not Adler. Do you know if she's related to any of them?

RE: Opal Roberts - Mult cemetery photo request
I know there are two. The other person said she would transfer that one to me. But, she did not do it. I wanted to make the link to her parents. That is why I requested a photo for this memorial.
