Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have been tracing our family trees for a number of decades. As part of that research, we have walked a number of cemeteries photographing the gravestones. Jim's genealogy centers on Mason County, WV and Elizabeth's family comes from the western New York area.

Changes to names, dates, places and relationships can be easily made under the Edit tab on any memorial.

The purpose of Find A Grave is to record burial locations, not build your family tree. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.

If you wish to gather your family members, use the "Virtual Cemetery" feature.

All the current policies on transfers can be found at "How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?" under the "Help with Find A Grave" link on the left hand side of the page.

Requests for transfers outside of direct relatives within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren) will not be honored.

Photographs we have taken can be used on other websites or in printed materials ONLY if credit is given to (including cemetery name) and credit is given to "Jim and Elizabeth" as photographers. Any images we have uploaded are copyrighted and are not free for the taking without proper credit.

Hi Jim & Elizabeth,
I noticed that you have placed a memorial of my Great Great Grandfather (William Riley Linkfield) and some of his sons on Find a Grave. Thank you so much for this! I have placed a memorial of one of his sons, on Find a Grave (which is my Great Grandfather, Frank Garland Linkfield), but am not able to take a photo of the grave since I live in another state. I was told he was buried in the same cemetery as his parents and brothers. I am not sure if you would have any photos of Frank Garland Linkfield's tombstone. I thought I would check with you since you have placed tombstone photos of other members in his family on find a grave.

Hi Elizabeth.....

Thanks for drawing this to my attention. I'm going with Ford and what you found. My guess is that this was one of those auto corrects which I hate. I don't always check them if I've been away too long and see a whole bunch of them. Thankfully it's people like yourself that are out there catching things like this. I would like if someone has a major correction like that to contact me and let me know and give me a source. Like you have just done. Can you imagine someone out there just deciding to have a fun day and making a bunch of random corrects with false info just for kicks? I could see it happening.......That certainly wouldn't be a good thing........

Thanks again....

Henry Runyan
In researching my third G Grandfather I discovered you have posted two different grave sites for him. One in the Pike NY cemetery as Maj. Henry Runyan with a grave stone and one in the Grace cemetery NY as Capt Henry Runyan with no grave stone but with a long obit.

Could you please explain. Also where did the obit come from? and could you get me the details off the grave stone in the Pike cemetery, I can't read them in the picture.

I really appreciate all your work in doing these graves. I wish I lived closer, I live in Nevada, maybe some day I can go there myself.
