Retired Air Force Master Sergeant. Just trying to help keep the memories and history alive. If I post any incorrect information please help me correct it.
Anyone may use any of my photographs from Find A Grave, with proper attribution, for their own family research on sites other than Find A Grave.
On all transfer requests include your relationship to the deceased and use the edit button on the memorial page to make the request as this makes it easier to find the correct memorial to transfer.
Note the following excerpt from Find-A-Grave's FAQ on transfers under Editing and Correcting Memorial Information:
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.
148518190 Thelma Baker Chris, I have sent several requests for changes for my cousin, Thelma Baker 148518190. Is there a reason they haven't been changed? I can give you proof of the dates.
If you would like to transfer her to me, I will gladly take care of her memorial. I realize I am not a direct descendant, but I do take great care of the memorials I am in charge of. The "Angel Hunter" kindly transferred her husband, Alfred Arthur Stearns 37727533, and as you can see, I've updated his memorial and provided information for others.
I look forward to hearing from you, Doni Wright 47024310
RE: Minnie and William Mount Thank you! I need a system that prompts me to check on my memorials every so often, or Find A Grave needs to notify contributors when links are made. I gave up on Minnie and Will years ago - I don't find anything on the Mounts on Ancestry - so Charley and John were a surprise.
Bashemuth Thorp Thank You, Chris, for the photo of her headstone. My records give her name a different spelling- Bashemath, but her memorial was created with that 'u' spelling. Your photo helps support what we have always thought was correct. THANKS
