|Bio and Links|
I started doing genealogy about 25 years ago and have been passionate about it ever since. My other interests include my family, Argentine tango, and travel.|
My husband and I enjoy finding monuments for other people and am extremely grateful to the volunteers who have found my own people for me. We've been working on finding the little pioneer cemeteries in the area and putting their inhabitants online. Four of our memorial pages even helped to catch a gravestone thief. Cemeteries are extremely vulnerable to vandalism, theft, and the damage of time and weather. We appreciate all of the volunteers out there who are working so hard to document them before they are lost to history.

Please note that I adhere to Findagrave policy, whether or not you may agree with it:
◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website.
◊Find A Grave's secondary purpose is a memorialization/remembrance site.
◊Find A Grave's tertiary purpose is a genealogical resource.
If a listing or contribution corresponds with only the primary purpose, it has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission and is not required to correspond with the secondary and tertiary purposes. Fulfilling the other two is welcomed, encouraged and deeply appreciated, but as far as Find A Grave's purpose goes, a memorial page isn't lacking if it does not.
Transfers are only made within the guidelines set up by Find A Grave. These guidelines are in place for a reason - whether one cares to accept them or not. I am not going to debate what the owner has deemed acceptable for his site with members who choose not to agree with the guidelines. "The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I am willing to consider transferring ownership to you if you have a close family member among my records. I rarely transfer relationships more distant than first cousin... just having someone "in my family tree" or "a relative" will not elicit a transfer.
If you want information added to the memorial, go to the memorial and use the "Edit" tab to send me the information. I will add information to the memorial, I do not transfer just because someone wants to add links or other information. Bottom line: what are you planning on doing with the entry that I haven't already done or am unable to do?
Due to the recent increase in abuses of transfer requests, I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed. Also, I hesitate to transfer memorials to those who do sloppy work, so emails laden with misspellings or other inaccuracies generally are ignored. Bad spelling is a pet peeve of mine.
On the other hand, I will always transfer if a memorial is sponsored. And if you upload family photos or in some other way add value to the memorial, I am much more willing to transfer.
I welcome all corrections to my own work. Some records were imported using OCR so have inevitable errors, both from the original records and from machine interpretation. I am only human and make mistakes, too, but will always make it priority to correct them.

I'm really sorry, but I do not understand what you meant about how your photos are copyrighted. Just so I don't get in trouble, do you mind if I use your photo of Emmer Brookshire's (memorial #29462529) tombstone on my Ancestry and family search trees. I always give credit to those whose photos I use.
Thank you for your work to help us with finding our ancestors. Were you able to attend the Rootstech conference in Salt Lake City this past month? Now that Ancestry owns this site, I understand we are going to be seeing some exciting changes and, hopefully, we won't have some of the problems you have dealt with in the past. It is obvious you have done a great deal of work. I have moved from the area where the majority of my ancestors were buried and have worked hard to find their information. I am really grateful for people like yourself who have helped me find those "rascally" ancestors who dared to leave the nest and move out into the world. haha
Again, I appreciate all your work.

Sorry...I have no idea if he is really buried here. The information I got this from was from the Hickory County, MO Cemetery directory.

Thanks for sending me Gma's obit. Is this from the Madras Pioneer paper? I have it somewhere but had not added it to her memorial. It's hard for me to realize it has been a dozen years since her passing.

You requested a photo of the grave of Elinor Book from Redmond Memorial Cemetery. I went to upload the picture and noticed the death dates were different. The one you have died in 1958. The grave I found had the death date of 1975. Upon further investigation I realized someone else had already put Elinor on with the correct dates and a grave photo. Also, there was a grave next to hers with the name Jacob P. Book, born 2 years before her. Husband?? Thanks! Kristin
