Bio Photo Hi Everyone,

I'm doing genealogy research on my family and was referred to this website. Would like to help others in their research. I believe in the saying, "Pay It Forward."

Thank you to all those who have added additional information to the memorials that I have listed. Appreciate your dedication to this site. Thank you Find a Grave for adding the updated "Edit" tab.

God Bless and have a great day.


FAG 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.

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

Ruth as you can see your memorial is a dup of an older one and now shows up like this, could you please delete yours since it was made after the first one. Not looked yet but hope there are not more, if they are would appreciate you removing them. I use and link all my family thru Find A Grave and this really can make a mess since dups come thru! Thanks

Thank you for creating and for transferring my father- and mother-in-law's memorials. I'll take good care of them.

Dear Ruth---We were so very, very happy to locate the Memorial, # 127920826, for my husband's Great-Great Grandfather, Reverend Milton Smith! We greatly appreciate all of the work you have done for genealogists everywhere! We had done a lot of searching to find him, and were also pleased to have been able to locate his wife of 40 years, and many of their children. We would like to link their family together. Would you consider transferring his memorial to us, so that we could add a biography and the links to all of his family? We would be ever so grateful! Lowell and Carol Thomas

Carl Teiwes
Hi Ruth,

Obviously you manage a lot of memorials. But since you posted three photos to Carl's memorial;

I thought you might have a personal interest in Carl.

So I wanted to let you know that I added another photo of Carl, and that the caption contains a link to his naturalization documents, in case you care to look at them.

Of course, feel free to change the order of the photos on the memorial.

I have no connection to Carl. I just find things online and pass them on :)

Emma I Glasshagel
Hi Ruth

I came across your entry for Emma I Glasshagel where you have added her maiden name. I am searching for an ancestor with a similar name and wonder what evidence you have for the maiden name. There are some discrepancies, and if cleared up this would really solve some problems for me. Can you contact me? While I am from Melrose Park, I live in Sweden now. I really look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Memorials
For the sake of the persons not aware:
When you click on a member's name and look under "Contributions to Find A Grave" Ruth you have at the moment "10,417 Memorials Added" and "10,276 Memorials Managed" and myself have "1,461 Memorials Managed" and "1,915 Memorials Managed". Since neither your "10,417 Memorials Added" or "10,276 Memorials Managed" is highlighted nobody can click on them and see which memorials you added or manage, however my "1,461 Memorials Added" and "1,915 Memorials Managed", it is highlighted and everybody in the world can see which memorials I added or managed. Hopefully, I expressed myself clearly now and you might be able to answer my original question.

I see that your memorials that you added or managed are not accessible. I am thinking that I should do the same. Did you make a special request to Find A Grave?

Pvt James C Atkins
I came across your photo of the grave of Pvt James C Atkins (Evergreen Cemetery, Hanover, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, USA) and was wondering if you came across his wife Martha C. (Oman), or her parents Ann and Henry Oman. Ann died in Hanover in 1866, I do not know when Martha and Henry died. Thanx Claire
