|Please try to verify any information that you want me to add, as I am an absolute stickler for accuracy in my genealogy. I am not like the many people who add things to memorials and trees and do not even check to make sure that it's accurate. Also, please do not add memorials to cemeteries that you are not familiar with. If you have proof that the person is indeed buried there (i.e., old transcriptions, obituaries, etc.) that is acceptable and encouraged. This helps those of us who make it a point to fulfill photo requests and it also is in line with FindAGrave's various policies.|
Getting the highest amount of memorials is not why I started doing this; being able to provide family members (especially ones that live far away) with the ability to know and see where their ancestors and loved ones are buried is my main goal. I will be happy to transfer any memorials provided that you can prove that you are directly descended from, or that you have a lot of information and photos to add. I will not delete a memorial just so you can create your own, but I will transfer the memorial in question to you given the provisions above. I reserve the right to keep the memorials that are in my own line, so I hope you'll understand.
PLEASE do not use chalk, shaving cream, bleach, or anything else to better read the tombstone. Even chalk has chemicals that ruin the delicate tombstones (especially the older ones). Instead, please use the native soil in the cemetery. I can say from experience that this method produces fine results. This method was given to me by a professional.
I have no problem with others using the photos that I have taken for use in their family trees. However, it is common courtesy to acknowledge the photographer for their time and effort. I only ask that if you do use the photos that I've taken, you please mention that you found them on FindAGrave and you use this to acknowledge me:

I would appreciate a transfer, thank you very much.
|Annette Daniel Winningham||Mary Sanders Reid|
I am unable to locate a Perkins-Evans Cemetery, please forward Find A Grave numbers for Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Sanders Reid and her husband Josiah Wyatt Reid.
|Clayton Grace||George Thomas Grace|
Hi Lindsey, I am searching for information on George Thomas Grace, he was the husband of Martha (Mann) Grace. I noticed you have posted a great amount of information on the Mann family and I would greatly appreciate any information on George Thomas Grace that you coe pass my way.
Thank you & look forward to hearing from you Clayton Grace.
I have received several requests for grave finding in my area; however, I've just realized on this one (Lee Cemetery in Louisville, AL)that I am supposed to check "claim" to let people know I am looking. What if instead of "Claim" it says "Open"? Does that mean you are doing the search? I have only done several so I am fairly new at this. Also, can I use tracing paper and charcoal? I am already aware that I cannot do direct contact with any substance. Thank you, very much, for your help, Janet Wright
|Faye||Janey Cole Lowe|

So what you are telling me is that Samuel is in that last section by the river inside of the overhead gate??? To me that is the only section that is Jewish??? It is hard to believe that small section has 80 graves and a lot of them you cannot read. All the other is not in the Jewish section.At least there are no markers saying the are Jewish.
Thanks for this very much. He was killed in a riot during Reconstruction; I read about him in some history books.

|Janet Evans||Wiley Oliver|
Lindsey, I was wondering if you could provide any information on Wiley Oliver. I see that the Oliver cemetery cannot be located. What information did you come across for the 3 people that are buried in the Oliver Cemetery. Any information will be great.
Thank you very much,
|Allen Kelly||Jones Cemetery|
Thanks for the trip to Jones Cemetery and the pictures of the Jones and English markers. Flat markers will eventually get covered and I think they are a bad idea.
I hope it wasn't too hard to get to.
