"So much of what is great has sprung from the closeness of OurFamilyTies."
----- Sir Thomas M. Barrie (1860-1937), playwright and novelist
I do add non-family graves, If I've added one of your friends or family members and you have additional information. Go to the "EDIT" tab on the memorial page to send me a correction or addition. I will do transfers to family members even if they are not within the findagrave guidelines, as long as the person you're asking for is not my own family.
"Wer die Vergangenheit nicht ehot verliet die Zukunft. Wer seine Wurzeln verrichtet kann nicht wachsen."
Who does not honor the past, loses the future. Who destroys its roots, can not grow.

Ancestry.com Acquires Find A Grave
Ancestry.com has purchased Find A Grave, the site with the largest database of free burial information and photos contributed by volunteers. The site will remain free, according to Ancestry.com, but see the Genealogy Insider blog to find out what will change at Find A Grave.
Ancestry.com Acquires Find A Grave
Posted by Diane
We just received an announcement that online genealogy company Ancestry.com has purchased Find A Grave, the site with the largest database of free burial information and photos contributed by volunteers.
Find A Grave will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ancestry.com, and will continue to be managed by its founder, Jim Tipton.
I already hear people asking if the site will remain free. Yes, says Ancestry.com president Tim Sullivan. From the press release:
"We will maintain Find A Grave as a free website, will retain its existing policies and mode of operation, and look forward to working with Jim Tipton and the entire Find A Grave team to accelerate the development of tools designed to make it even easier for the Find A Grave community to fulfill its original mission to capture every tombstone on Earth."
I've found family tombstone photos on Find A Grave, and you probably have, too. The 18-year-old site has 100 million memorials to deceased people, and 75 million photos, a significant addition to Ancestry.com's content.
Ancestry.com plans for Find A Grave include a mobile app for uploading cemetery photos (Billion Graves, another cemetery website, has one), improved customer support, an easier editing of already-submitted memorials and foreign-language support.
This isn't the first time Ancestry.com has acquired a free, grassroots genealogy site: You may remember back in 2000, when the company (then called MyFamily.com) purchased RootsWeb. In 2008, RootsWeb was moved onto Ancestry.com servers.
We'll bring you more details as we learn them.
Update: Here's an FAQ on the acquisition from Tipton, who says he realized "Find A Grave had gotten too big to run it as I always have and I also realized that I might not be around some day ... and I wanted to make sure it had a stable home, while still retaining control over how it evolves. But ... I'm hoping this gives me the opportunity to do so many of the things that I've always wanted to do with the site now that I have some real resources behind me."
And a word from the Founder of FindAGrave.com

You're so right when you say we could use President Kennedy's wisdom today ~ how the country needs him now.

Thanks for the addition
|Ryan Curtis||Re: Huntley|
Normally, I would be more than happy to transfer a memorial to someone's relative. However, Peggy was my aunt and I would prefer to continue as the memorial manager if that's okay.
Certainly! You're most welcome.
Thank you so very much for the transfer of Alvina E Pudwill, it's much appreciated.

|j hayter||Phyfe - Schermerhorn Connection|
Hi, I'm very interested in learning more about this connection.
My ggg grandparents: Elida Schermerhorn & James Cleland
I know Caroline married (a) Duncan Phyfe but I wasn't sure how he was connected with the Duncan Phyfe.
I notice to also have a few other names (although common) in my tree; Morton & Day

I don't know if I did a typo or not.
Maybe I did.
Did I ever tell you about the Phyfe - Schermerhorn connection? Or the new Duncan Phyfe book?

Take a look at this memorial. I just got a really old tombstone picture that I think you might be interested in.

|C. ♥||Your Bio Page is Nice|
I am referring to your own Find A Grave Bio page and what you've written. The Fact: Yourself; Your Parents etc is what I meant that needs a larger chart. : ) Since I am seeking my German STEMME family too the quote is nice. I hope that is clearer for you. Thank You for all you do.
