Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. My surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: I will add additional information and make corrections to the memorials I have created. Please use the "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page and choose the correct option.

Transfer requests: Please request the transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those that I am directly related to. Please, also, used the "edit" tab from each memorial that you wish to have transferred and include your contributor ID# in your request under "Suggest any other correction or addition."

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if the death of the individual occurred over 20 years ago. I do not post newspaper obits without a proper citation which includes both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

Pearl Anderson (died 1976
You have listed Pearl Anderson (died Oct 2 1976) as being buried in Greenacres Memorial Park in Ferndale, WA. Dates are correct but she is buried in Bayview Cemetery, Bellingham WA. She is my grandmother, and both she and my grandfather Matthew Anderson (also known as Mads or Matt) are buried at Bayview. Please correct the entry for her.
Thank you

Wrong Spouse
Merrily - I'm researching the Clay family and found one small error.

Alma E. "Greene" Clay (Find A Grave #129244352) is the mother of Lowell Bertram Clay (Find A Grave #129244369) not spouse. The spouse for Alma and father of Lowell is Leonard B. Clay (Find A Grave #8356157).

I've submitted a connection request for Leonard.

Thank you,
Frank Clay
