|Bio and Links|
Genealogy has been a passion for years. Find A Grave is a way for me to "pay it forward". By helping others find their families, I can repay the many who helped me in my search. Find A Grave has been a wonderful tool for me.|
This is a hobby. I have a full-time job and can't do this everyday. Therefore, my response times may vary. To ensure there are no misunderstandings, to reduce errors and to keep my participation manageable, here are my expectations.
TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule. While I do believe memorials best belong with family members, I may in some cases choose to retain them. In those instances, I will be happy to add additional information or links. Certainly, I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances.
REQUESTING TRANSFERS: Use the "Edit" button; I will not respond to email transfer requests. This helps ensure accuracy. Please do not request multiple transfers in one message; one person per request. Do not send requests like "transfer all Smiths in this cemetery". To comply with transfer policy, you must fully explain your relationship to the individual. You must include your Find A Grave name and contributor number; I will not search for you.
LINKS: While genealogy is a secondary function of Find A Grave, I think linking makes Find A Grave more informative and is a great genealogy tool. Again, use the "Edit" button. I will not respond to email requests. One person per request. For example, if you want to link all the children of a couple to the parents, send an individual request for each child. Be sure to include your name and contributor number.
PICTURES: My pictures are not in the "public domain". Do not copy or distribute them without my expressed written permission.
MORE ON PICTURES: I recently got a "complaint" that I didn't "straighten" the flowers in a picture. I don't go to the cemetery to take pictures of flowers. My goal is to record the family information on the stone. I may even "crop" the flowers out of a picture in order to get a better picture of the history. Plus, I DO NOT DISTURB the gravesite. At times, I've basically "stood on my head" to take a picture so as not to disturb the gravesite. It doesn't always make for perfect pictures but, just know, I did my best to preserve the history without disturbing anything. They all need to REST IN PEACE!
MY SON: I lost my son, Dustin, in 2009. Please visit his memorial 67376999. He is sorely missed every day.
IN CASE OF DEATH: I'm planning to become a very OLD lady! It's challenging to get links, transfers, corrections when a contributor is deceased. Therefore, Kathy Vanchieri or Amanda Ware will assume control of my memorials upon my demise. It's in my will!

Cheryl, Thank you for doing wonderful work on Beverly. When she moved to OK, family lost touch with her over the years. Her Father and Mother (my great aunt) are both buried in the Greenwood Cemetery near Sauk Centre, MN. They do not have Find A Grave information that I'm aware of. For your infomation:
Father: Frank Davy O'Gara 1900-1973
Mother: Frieda Matilda (Gomer) O'Gara
B: 14 Nov 1902 Minnesota
D: Jun 1985 Sauk Centre, Minnesota
|Old Joseph||Kenneth Joe Brooks (#65858635)|
I see that you have had a photo request since 13 April 2013 for Kenneth Joe Brooks. I have looked for his gravestone in the Aledo cemetery when I am in Texas, which is every six months or so. Like another F-A-G member, I have not been successful in locating Kenneth Brooks' gravestone. I checked Newspapers.com but didn't find anything significant. On FamilySearch.org, however, I did find a little information about Kenneth Brooks. Perhaps some of this information may assist you.
Note: It may be necessary to see a copy of the death certificate to determine where exactly Kenneth Brooks was buried. If he is indeed buried in the Aledo cemetery, it would strongly appear that his grave is unmarked.

lst I want to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your son. I lost a baby girl 2 yrs old.
I did visit his memorial page and leave flowers for him.
Thank you for letting me know about the missing name one the tombstone inscription, I corrected it.
Thanks for all you do on Findagrave.com
|Richard Pittman||RE: Trimmer photos and Pittman name|
Yes, and thanks for asking; I do give my permission on my page as well.
My line actually started with Bittman/Bittmann; changing to Pitman and then Pittman along the way. I have had contact from others who are related to Thomas.
All my best with your continued efforts.
|Bonnie||Re: Vera McDowell|
You are welcome to use that photo and any others that pertain to your family.
Thank you for asking,

Yes, with credit as stated.
|Linda Durbin||Charles Grandison MORGAN Memorial #39617994|
First of all, thank you for all you have done for researchers. I certainly appreciate your work. Do you know who added the name Rachel LINDSEY as mother of Charles Grandison MORGAN? If so, will you please put us in touch with each other? I know his mother's name was Rachel, but have never heard the name LINDSEY.
Thank you for your attention to my query.
