Ron West (167,551 Memorials)
I am a bit of a fan of history and I love the history you find in cemeteries. My favorites are the old pioneer cemeteries of the west.

For those of you that are looking for forgotten relatives, loved ones, friends and family, I just want to say to you that I do what I do here on Find A Grave, for you. No one should be forgotten! We may not all ... (read more)
 
Tony & Cindy Lloyd (235,505 Memorials)
I live in Nebraska and recently took over the Genealogy torch from my grandmother. I have had numerous people take photos of cemetery stones for me and I thought I would like to do the same for others. My wife Cindy helps to take photos, enter names, and deal with the thousands of corrections.

Special thanks goes out to Jenn O. (#47041892) for a... (read more)
 
jlong (532,245 Memorials)
If you have found a family member Memorial on Find A Grave then you are the recipient of some kindness and effort on the part of a volunteer. Someone once said that creating Memorials on FAG is like the proverbial Message-in-a-bottleŚ being cast out onto the sea of the internet, waiting to be found and linked back to a family. I enjoy creating those M... (read more)

Twist (215,556 Memorials)
Hello.

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

Stuart Strout Woodside Skolfield (218,162 Memorials)
I guess I was 12 when my uncle George started telling me of my family roots, and gave me a lot of research. If you see any information that is not correct, please let us know. More than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials, but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what ... (read more)

Please use the editing system when you are sending suggestions. This includes Links to Parents and Spouse, birth and death information.

No Links to unknown burial
Be careful and note that birth dates based on an age that is on a headstone does not guarantee this is a correct birth date. Such as if a stone says Died age 74 that does not ... (read more)

Headstone Genealogist (428,206 Memorials)
A simple "Transfer please." is all that is required to request a memorial transfer. The transfer will usually happen. (Over 36,000 transfers to date)
 
Graves (731,763 Memorials)
I'm caught up on auto-edits to 10/30 and email edits to about 10/30.

FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have an incorrect date without providing a correct date - requiring me to research). I'll get to them eventually but I process the change requests where the submitter has already... (read more)

A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

I got interested in Family History in 2007, and in 2008 and 2009 visited hundreds of my "dead relatives", as my wife so descriptively put it. (I did meet many live ones, too.)

I've been doing family research for over twenty years and it is still a favorite past-time.

Please use the edit system for edits, as anything else may take a lot longer.

Super Squirrel. Our family tree is full of nuts.

I enjoy researching especially online the parish records of Czech Republic and Austria. The records are usually in Latin, German Gothic or Czech, which I speak none of. The German Gothic is crazy hard to read the characters. I live in Miami, Florida. As more Cemetery records go online this helps to... (read more)
