Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have found memorials, many with photos of gravestones, for many of my ancestors on this site. I have used the Photo Requests feature to see the gravestones for other relatives as well. The members and volunteer photographers have responded wonderfully!
I think this is such a wonderful resource, for a lot of reasons. I am delighted to be able to volunteer as well by fulfilling Photo Requests of nearby cemeteries, when time allows, from people just like me and you who would not be able to see the grave sites of their relatives or loved ones otherwise.

I do not make duplicate memorials on purpose, but sometimes they just happen; and I will delete mine as soon as notified.
Please do not ask me to delete my older memorial because you didn't spend the time to see if one was already created. I am sorry your memorial may have more information, pictures, etc., but these are Find-A-Grave rules and I happen to agree with them.

Please know that I am only transferring memorials per Find A Grave guidelines:
"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."
For family members out of the guidelines I will gladly make corrections or add more info. PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send the information and memorial numbers for links.

Please use the "EDIT" tab on any memorial page. I try to be very prompt and am happy to work with you on multiple memorials and information. Thanks for your understanding.

If you find any erroneous information or broken links, please let me know so we can correct those too. If you want me to add links, please put the memorial number in your request. PLEASE make requests through the EDIT button in top right corner of memorial and the "Suggest a Correction" option.

I authorize anybody to use the photos I have posted for personal use. They are of the highest resolution FAG will allow.

Thanks for adding an obituary, and adding my info on his ancestors (and so quickly!).

Gerald & Marguerite Tornga
Thank-you very much for creating a memorial for my Uncle Gerald and Aunt Marguerite on Find A Grave. They lived in Seattle, Washington and I'm in Michigan, so I will probably never be able to visit the cemetery they are buried at. I really appreciate that you have transfered their memorials to me. I will take very good care of them. Thanks you so much for all you do on Find A Grave.

Russell Elevin Bloodworth
Hey Rick,
I built Adda Florence Hughes Bloodworth b.1895 d.1977 memorial without checking as you already built her memorial. Before I noticed my mistake I connected your Russell Elevin Bloodworth 129180690 to her to my bogus Adda.
He needs to be reconnected to your existing Adda Florence Hughes Bloodworth b.1895 d.1977 129180642.

Adda Florence Hughes Bloodworth b.1895 d.1977 had four children:
Herbert Dale Bloodworth your 112710402
Russell Elevin Bloodworth your 129180690
Dorothy Lea Bloodworth my 149148776
Kathleen Doris Bloodworth VJS 95320078 who I just attached.
Real sorri for mucking all this up as Iím a newbie.

Wrong Link for H. Dale Bloodworth
Rick, I screwed up. I linked up your Herbert Dale Bloodworth to a wrong parent. His mother shud be Adda Florence Hughes Bloodworth 129180642.
