Mookie (205,197 Memorials)
I've been doing family research for years and it is still a favorite past-time.

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

Find A Grave has become a useful research tool, but has also been abused a bit. I try very hard not to connect any of my memorials to those that are labeled "burial unknown". To man... (read more)

John C. Anderson (430,468 Memorials)
My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest co... (read more)

When you us my photos, please credit them back to me since I hold the copyright, and more importantly so that others know the origin of the photo.

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.

Chris Mills (455,677 Memorials)
If you are asking for a transfer either make sure you are logged into Find A Grave when you send the transfer request OR manually insert your member number into the email if you are not sure! Missing member numbers mean I have to send you an email and ask and it's a lot more likely your transfer request will just fall between the cracks.(read more)
