If I add marker or cemetery photos to a memorial or cemetery that already has a photo, it has nothing to do with you. Many times it's just a slightly larger photo of the marker, or a closeup, or a different angle. Or sometimes it's just because I have a lot of heart involved in a person's memorial. The main reason is that markers deteriorate so quickly sometimes that I want to preserve as much as possible while we can.

I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years. I had never made a major focus on cemeteries or burials until the last 10 years or so. Now they are very important to me, since I've learned how much more they can tell us about family and history.

Like most of you probably, my family and friends attempt to hide my eyes or distract me when we pass a cemetery. I could probably find a burial related to me or someone I know in most cemeteries in the United States

Most of all I'm grateful to all the wonderful individuals who created and maintain "Find-A-Grave" to help preserve the memories and images of our world-wide family, as well as the other everyday people who contribute here!

Galvins in Delta Center Cemetery

I was wondering if you would consider transferring the memorials for Oran (78116459) and John Galvin (78115800) to me. They are my 2nd great-great uncle and 3rd great-grandfather, respectively. I would love to be able to add all of the Civil War information I have for Oran, and to connect them with other family members.

Thank you for your consideration.

I want to thank you so much for taking the time to take the picture of the Stevens headstone. I have signed up to do the same thing in California and I hope I can make someone as happy as you made me.
Thanks again,
