PLEASE send any additions or corrections to me using "EDIT" or "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site. I will be happy to add any information and relationship links for you, please furnish appropriate link numbers. For all correspondence please include your member name and #.
When we do a memorial one of the choices is Unknown for Burials & Cremations. Everyone no matter if they have a physical grave or only dates in a Bible deserve a Memorial.
I will link any memorial I care for and will be happy to add a memorial for someone.
If their grave site is found in the future we can move the memorial to that cemetery or if someone adds a memorial to the correct cemetery, we can delete the duplicate.

I will no longer transfer memorials to people who have not been a member of FAG for at least SIX months; there are too many people signing on wanting memorials and never bother to care for them. It took me almost a year to get my father's memorial transferred due to a peson not signing in and checking his memorials.

This does not apply to direct generations.

I grew up with Decoration Day (2nd Sunday in May) going to all the cemeteries were the family members were and the last one would be Dad's grave in Oneonta, Alabama. Visiting the family plots and placing roses on all the graves. Mom would work on the flowers for days. Afterwards, we would go to "Little Joe's" restaurant and have dinner, they served "Family Style". For those in other areas of the country this is like sitting down at grandma's house with bowls of food set on the table and everyone shares. Some of my most wonderful memories are setting around talking to the family, where they lived, what was their name, and stories. I miss Decoration Day, but FAG helps to fill that place in my heart.

My love is Genealogy and that is why I do FAG.
FAG Guidelines for Transfers are: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Please if you are related email me, and explain connections.

Please if you are related email me, and explain connections.

FAG Guidelines: Bulk surname requests should not be made and will not be honored.


Virtual Cemeteries

A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page.
If you have something that needs attention in a timely manner please email me.

Thank you so much for sharing the additional information for Abbey Hulsey Box which I've added to her memorial. I've wondered for years who her parents were and appreciate you sharing that with me. Many Blessings to you & yours!

Alma Rilla Marsh
Thank you so much for the newspaper info on the death of Rilla Marsh. It fills in so many blanks in the story her Aunt, Viola Love Standridge told me about the " fire in the cotton", but never completed the story. Now if I can only find her sister Ida. Viola is my husbands grandmother.

RE: Robert Cook
Well hello cousin!

Oooh, that would make sense that you wouldn't have anything up if you didn't know where they were buried. But I talked to my dad and they (Robert C Cook and Christine Cook) are buried at Resthaven Gardens of Memory in Decatur, Georgia. Could you send me the link Robert Cook's memorial? I couldn't find it.


By the way my relation to Georgia is through her son Robert Cook, through his daughter Barbara Cook Riales, through her son James Franklin Grant, Jr. who is my father :) There is also another son I believe there is another son for Robert and Georgia, Calvin. I'll have to see if I can find out from my grandmother where he is buried.

Thanks again :)

No problem at all. I do the same thing. The only thing I like to do is put one photo of the marker first and then the obit. If you would like to manage a relative's memorial, no matter the distance, just send a msg on each of the memorials and they are yours. I like what your bio has to say and agree with it.
