Please be very careful about the numbers, I've had many that if I had used the ones submitted the wrong families would be linked. It is also helpful if you put the name of the person, along with the number, I can do a search if I don't think the number is correct.


I will be more than happy transfer any memorial page as long as:

1. You follow the simple directions below
2. The memorial is not MY OWN family or one that I am researching.
3. ONE request at a time. (Go to each memorial page and make the request from there using the "Edit" tab at top right of the memorial page)

A) Go to the MEMORIAL PAGE you want transferred

B) Click on the "Edit" tab at the top right of the page, then click on the "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" link.

C) In the Message: area type in YOUR MEMBER NUMBER , your reason for transfer AND your relationship to the person you've requested.

Requesting a transfer this way insures that no mistakes are made because it takes me to the exact memorial you want plus it provides me with all the numbers I need to complete the transfer.
(Thanks to Nancy Hough for posting these instructions which I have shamelessly borrowed..)
If you write me about any of my listings, PLEASE tell me the cemetery and the state it is in, ALONG WITH THE NAME OF THE DECEASED. I've worked in at least three states, as well as being involved with many other databases, it becomes difficult to find one particular person!

Some of my information comes from other researchers who have given permission to use here. My thanks to all of you. A very special 'thank you' goes to my daughter, Joy Gabbert McKillip, and my friend Janelle Foster. They have both helped me in the cemeteries and I couldn't have done much without them.

Gibson, James McKee
Hello, Joyce
I have submitted a new date for death of James McKee Gibson which comes from his death certificate. If you could include that information in his memorial that would be helpful to family researchers.

He is my great grandfather.

Thanks for all that you do for Find A Grave

Best way to link multiple family members?
Afternoon Joyce,

I am wondering which would be the best way to link a large group of family members in the same cemetery? Would you prefer the edit tab on all of them or another way?

Hi Joyce, I was wondering if I could use some of the grave stone photos you posted of Charles Morrison & Family (Mt. Zion Cemetery) for my personal family tree?
Thank you!

Thank You for the Transfer

Good Morning Joyce,

Thank you for Transferring the Memorial of Robert Lee Finley, Jr to me to maintain as a tribute for the Buckelew and Finley ancestors.

He was just a baby, born after the death of his own father. Robert Lee and Laura Ann were two children of Mary Buckelew Finley and William H. Finley. Unfortunately William died when his son Robert Lee was a toddler, and before the birth of daughter, Laura Ann.

I appreciate your kindness in helping us bring the family together through Find A Grave Memorials.

I hope you will continue searching cemeteries, taking photographs and sharing Memorials with the families of their loved ones. Truly a commendable service.

With my gratitude, Ella Faye Johnson Contributor #48230261

Would you mind removing pictures you had posted on my mother's memorial, (#13222941 Verna Raye Trapp)? You posted two pictures, one of her gravestone and one of the close-up of a picture that was on her stone. This picture has been replaced on the stone and a new picture of the gravestone uploaded to her site.

Thanks for all you've done!
