NO LINKS shall be made to a duplicate memorial or to an unknown burial.
I do not click on links that are sent to me that go to some other location, such as another website. If you would like to have an obituary added to a memorial please send the obituary not the link to the obituary. If you send just a link to the obituary, the message is deleted.
So Please!! send the information "NOT THE LINK".
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Transfer request
PLEASE read the find a grave Policy
Transfer requests direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Simply stating they are in your tree, they are part of my family... Or stating that the memorial is your fathers or mothers, yet the person passed over 100 years ago. That would make you pretty old... Don't you think??

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, your husbands mothers neighbors sister, your childs long lost friend, nor does this include the cousin of your sister in law of your cousins brother) are not required to be transferred. Such as Grandma In Law. Or Cousin in Law? I have never heard of a cousin in Law before. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer

Per Find a grave Policy
Do not leave derogatory or politically charged notes. Inappropriate notes will be removed. Additionally, biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.
Please remember that there are a limited number of photos that are allowed on each memorial without sponsorship. Posting of a death certificate, and then posting a birth certificate, then posting of census records. This takes up a least three spots where family who want to leave photos are not able to. Death certificate are a "Source" of information, please note that they often times contain multiple errors.

I have been asked by some family members whom do not wish for the death certificates to be posted to memorials. I am in the process of removing the death certificate photos that I have also posted.

If there is something particular you would like added from the death certificate please let me know, and I'll be happy to add the information. So due to issue of trying to make everyone happy I ask that death certificates not be posted to memorials under my care.

RE: Mary (Rhinehart) Goodrich
The son, Paul Edward Goodrich is buried in Edmonds Memorial Cemetery, Edmonds, Snohomish County, Washington. (Memorial #5502570) I have asked the manager of the Mary (Rhinehart) Goodrich Memorial to modify the cemetery location accordingly.

She wasn't buried - she was cremated.

Hello Rita
I understand your concern with the name difference from Golaszewski to Gale. Only the two males from this family Legally changed their name. because it was so hard to say or spell. Both Charles and Stanley Mem. #92470427 are my wifes Uncles.

RE: Sarah Hall
I am up late so what the heck. I changed it to cemetery unknown. Would you please still link her daughter to her.

Thank you

RE: Sarah Hall
I don't take it as rude at all, merely, dotting "I" and crossing "T" s.

What I will do tomorrow, is place her in an unknown category as if she were cremated and ashes scattered, but note that her lineal descendant stated she was at that cemetery.

I would still ask you to link to her, even though she will not be at Rose Hill.

Thank You

RE: Memorial# 133152835
I am not sure if your last message was sent before or after mine, but to clarify. The information I have on her is from direct lines. (1) buried in same cem as daughter Elva. I verified where she was. (2) My database states Rose Hills (two words) in Whittier, LA County. (3) I checked, didn't see her, so I checked F. A. G. database for all possible renditions of her name from Sarah, Sara, Frances, Sud, Fannin, etc. Hall, plus utilized birth and death years on a nationwide search pattern and NADA, ZIPPO, NOTHING. So that leaves me with one probability, that her great granddaughter knew what she was talking about (they are Mormon and very much into genealogy) and that she was left out, otherwise, somebody would have already made one. (4) Understanding the most cemeteries on this part of North America do not keep meticulous records, I assume an LA County cemetery would. However, this is a 50's burial, not a contemporary one and therefore, not being familiar with the cemetery, I can only make the assumption that she was missed at some point in the last 62 years. Those things all added up, I decided to create the memorial of my Great Grandmothers sister. I have NO access to LA County records from where I am at, and no I don't subscribe to

All these things taken into consideration and reviewing the policies of Find A Grave, I made the memorial and asked you to link her daughter. Since I am assuming it is Elva that we were talking about the link. I can refer you to census data if needed. All I have here is the 1880 Federal Census for Coleman County, Texas (Roll T9-1296, page 10, ED 41, dated 14-15 June 1880) but that is before Elva was born and there is no 1890 census. It will take some time to for me to get a copy of the 1900 census.

So in short, I really do appreciate what you have done and are doing, but I have followed all of the protocols that were available to me from here in Kansas. That said, it is up to you to link them, but she is the mother of Elva Gilliland, regardless of any other concerns you may have.

Have a great night as it is getting late here and I must turn in.

Again, Respectfully

Sarah Hall
Ok, now reading messages before I go to bed is not always good. I am not at that cemetery, but the information on her as well as other relatives came from her great great granddaughter Heather (Gilliland) Smith. I have no other way to verify since I am in Kansas.

You may do what you wish but this is the info I was given and I did check first to see if she was listed anywhere else before making the memorial. She is buried, according to her direct line in the same cemetery as her daughter Elva Gilliland, which I did find there. I am not therefore going to say she is 100% there, but only what I was told and is recorded in my database and she is no where else to be found.

Regardless of that, Elva is her daughter. Elva's middle name is Gertrude. She was born in Burkett, Coleman County, Texas and died in El Monte. Can't get obits from that far back, nor do I know that cemeteries policies on burials from the 50's. Your call
