Hi! This member LaxCapital (#47036716), is requesting a photo Of Beau Biden, 12 hours after his death. I find this in extremely poor taste.This person has been a member for almost seven years, and has added only 21 photo's.
Just thought you should know.

transfer memorial #11831771
Could you please transfer the memorial for Jacob Broom #11831771 to me? He is my 5th great grandfather.
My number is #47636298.

Also, the photograph which appears in the memorial is of his grandson Jacob Broom, son of James Madison Broom. No photo/portrait is supposed to exist for Jacob Broom, signer of the Constitution. That is why Louis Glanzman, who painted the "Signing of the Constitution" which hangs in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, painted Jacob Broom in the act of signing the document so that we only see his back.
Could you please remove the photograph since it is not of him?

Thanks, Jessie Larson

Rickie John Sorensen - - Famous person
Good morning - - I work FLLB a lot, the staff know me and are very helpful. A request came through for memorial 7276657, Rickie John Sorensen, a child actor. Cemetery records confirm he is buried with his brother, Lonnie. I am asking for the photos pending to be approved. Thanks - C. Bryan 46788769

Adopted & Biological
My father was adopted at 2 days old but found and developed a relationship with his biological siblings.

We need Findagrave to enable us to record (when necessary) both biological and adoptive parents.

The alternative is to create 2 separate grave records, one that links to the biological lineage and the other that links to the adoptive lineage.

New icon?
Would it be possible to create a way to sites that have no headstone or other marker? Our family is organizing a group to try to place markers where needed and we are hoping others would try to do the same. It would sure make the task easier if we could identify these graves without a lot of searching. Thanks for your consideration of our suggestion and thank you for all you do at Karen.
