Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will transfer memorials well beyond the Find A Grave guideline on transfers, but the request MUST include exactly how you are connected to the person in the memorial along with the details of the information you wish to add to the memorial. I don't like doing it this way, but I've been getting too many who get a transfer of their 4th or 5th cousin several times removed by simply saying "please transfer this family member to me so I can add information", then months later when I find more information to add, I have trouble getting them to either respond or add the new information to a memorial that is completely unchanged from when I transferred it to them. I do most of my FindaGrave volunteer work here in Marion County, Missouri. In about 1819, one set of my 4th great-grandparents settled less than 3 miles from where I live today and almost all of my ancestors were in this area before the Civil War started, including some 5th great-grandparents. Well over five dozen of my direct ancestors and their families are buried within a 45 mile radius of my house. So with that in mind, if requesting transfers outside of the official guidelines, please show me you are considerably more closely connected or have some compelling reason you need to be the manager of the memorial. Note that having "more information to add" can be resolved by sending it to the current manager through the edit tab of the memorial. On the other hand, if I didn't know them personally (not my teachers, neighbors, friends, etc) or they are way out on a side branch of my family tree, I'll probably be happy to transfer a memorial for the friend of your great-aunt Martha's second husband's barber if you want it. But first you need to let me know that is how you are connected. My descision to transfer may also be influenced by how much you have contributed to Find A Grave for those you are not connected to, and how many transfers you have made to others, as I try not to reward those who do little to add to the Find A Grave website besides searching for any names they recognize from their extended family tree and collecting them by asking for transfers.

I want my memorials to be detailed and accurate. HOWEVER: "Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience". (That's their wording). I don't feel a memorial here should be a repository for transcriptions of census records, marriage certificates, or other source materials that are widely available elsewhere online unless it is the type of thing you might engrave on the tombstone, include in a eulogy, or put in the newspaper obituary of your loved ones. If you want to write the information into a nice biography or story of some type, that would be great to add, but please don't just send things like raw census data. I'll add obituaries for you, but I'm not very comfortable with those that were written less than 50 years ago unless any names of people still living are used only with their permission. Otherwise, putting dashed lines in place of their names or just using excerpts of the obituary without the names of those who may still be alive is what I prefer. As you may have noticed when you read the Find A Grave rules on obituaries, any obituary you wish to have added needs to include the name and date of the newspaper from which it came. I also suggest including the volume and issue number of the paper as well, just in case some of the people you are hoping will see it also want to include an original source citation in their geneological records.

RE: Alexander Crane family links
Hello Sir,

I added the links some time ago but I don't believe that I responded to you. Alex and Sarah were my grandmother's (Hazel) foster parents. When I told my father that I was researching and entering this information he told me to do what I could for George Crane and his parents. That is why I originally entered the grave record.

Im sorry, I guess thanking you for your photo got pass me, and I want to let you know how very much thankful I am for your time. This photo was able to show my gg grandfather was married 2 times. Kind of funny when so many didn't know and the discussions would take us many hours searching and discussing options into the night

Thank you for what you do

RE: Nellie Hayes
Yes, Nellie Holman married Dr. Christian Peter Glahn II (1874-1920) November 3, 1909--I don't know where for sure, could be either Knox or Marion County perhaps. His Memorial number is 82115759. If you'd like to link them you can do that which ever way you wish, perhaps through her since she was married more than once. However, I don't know who Mr. Hayes was. I thought it unusual when I looked at Nellie's Memorial to have both married names on the stone, but understood why, I am sorry I did not elaborate further than just giving you the maiden name. I know you couldn't read my mind!! Duh!! :-) If you have access to ancestry.com you will find Christian and Nellie in the 1910 and 1920 Census in Marion County. Quentin, if you need more let me know, I have a tree full of info for the Glahn's and would be willing to look to see if there is anything in it that would help.

Francis Arthur Dent, #101307472
I believe that this man was the son of my great uncle, Francis "Frank" Dent (Find A Grave #68886573) who died in 1916 and was buried in the Poplar Bluff Cemetery, Poplar Bluff, Butler County, MO.

Please add a link to Francis "Frank" Dent.

Thanks,

I don't think that I had ever gotten around to thank you for adding the picture of Henry Kempf.
Sorry about that and I ask you to forgive me for that. I am very grateful for your help and thank you kindly! This was very helpful for my research!!

Thanks and Take Care,

Murphy transfers
Thanks so much for the transfer of the Murphys! I have already added a bit more information to the memorials. It's so exciting when you are searching for someone and can actually find a memorial for them. It sounds like you, too, are working for completeness and accuracy. Keep up the good work!
