Bio and Links
Bio Photo it is because of my precious mother that I became interested in Family History, Family was most important to her. That passion was taken away from her.

If requesting transfers, CORRECTIONS or additions please use the edit tab, as this will send the information needed to perform a transfer and/or edit.

DO NOT post requests for the above on THIS PAGE those requests will be ignored and deleted!

Regarding Transfer Requests:

First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please use the edit feature within the memorial to let me know of any corrections/additions to my listings so that I may make the changes.

I will gladly transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines, unless they are part of my own genealogical research.

"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren".

"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave

I am more than happy to correct or add info and/or bio(s), and/or link family members.

If you are NOT related or if your relationship does not fall within Find A Grave guidelines a one time Sponsorship to Find A Grave of only $5 and I will transfer the memorial.

RE: James O Hill
J. O. Hill is my g-grandfather. His daughter, my grandmother, is Pearl Hill Gibbons and buried at Liberty. I would like to get her linked to the family but Troy, who manages her and many in Liberty Cemetery, is inactive. Sarah Gibbons Garton

RE: Question
I had to cancel because it can take a month or more after burial before there is a marker, but will keep watching for the burial as I am there at least once a week normally. As soon as there is a permanent marker I'll post pics. There are 4 or 5 of us hard at work in Santa Fe photographing the over 50,000 burials, and the number of "oops" ones is relatively small, so please don't hesitate to ask if there is someone you want a picture for. One warning sign is no plot number. If there isn't one then I check on the Dept of Veterans Affairs website for a burial and either send an edit to have the plot number added or report it as in the wrong cemetery.

I have your request for Joe Love on my list and will be going up on Monday. I also tend to pick up any others of the same last name (barring smith etc) so I'll check on the rest of the Love graves while I'm there.

RE: Question
There are dozens of memorials added to Santa Fe by "International Wargraves" that are really buried in Willamette National Cemetery or in Tahoma National Cemetery. Most have memorials listed in the correct cemetery as well. No idea what caused the mix ups.
