|Bio and Links|
I am 32 years old, originally from Arizona, but I have been in Idaho for 17 years. I met my wife at BYU-Idaho, and we now have two beautiful daughters and two adorable sons. I have been obsessed with genealogy since I was very young, and I am happy to help others find their ancestors.|
Lately I have been getting multiple requests for the same action in the same week. Please be patient. I generally take care of all of my emails on weekends, because I have a lot keeping me busy during the week. If I don't fulfill your request within a couple weeks, feel free to resend it at that point.
I contribute to this website because I have gotten so much out of it for my own research. I love finding records of my relatives' burials, and especially love when there is a picture of their grave included. My contributions are my way of giving back. I'm not trying to get the biggest numbers on my profile, although I admit that I check my numbers often. (I have a degree in Mathematics, I can't help it.)
I try to add family links, places, middle and maiden names, and any other information I can find to each memorial. If you have this information and I have not included it, please notify me through the Suggest a Correction link under the Edit tab. I usually get to them the following weekend. I will transfer family members, as long as they are not my relatives also, but I ask that if I transfer them to you that you be willing to update the memorial if anyone asks. One thing I hate is a "dead memorial," one that the contributor doesn't take care of and nobody can ever update again.
If you find a birth or death certificate for one of my memorials, please send me the link rather than adding it as a picture to the memorial. I love adding these extra links, and I think it looks better than a picture of a document.
I am also working on getting my entire family, no matter how distant, linked and updated on here. This involves a whole lot of correction emails. I don't generally include source information with my emails, because of the time it takes, but in most cases I have that information handy if requested. If you have received hundreds of emails from me, please be patient. I am not trying to annoy anyone, and I am not in a rush to have it done, I'm just trying to help make this site better for future visitors.
When I find a relative's memorial, I add it to my virtual cemeteries under the branch of my family that they come from. As of Aug 9, 2015, I have 27575 relatives found on Find a Grave. I usually leave flowers on relatives' graves if they don't have any yet, because I don't want any of them to be forgotten.

My grandfather (Richard Phil Shumway) is brother to Wilford Shumway(44996263). Wilford has a calculated relationship of half brother to his siblings. He was a full brother. Can you fix that? I would hate for the wrong information to be passed on to other generations. Thanks for all that you do to connect families.

Thanks for your work on the Find-A-Grave site. I have a correction for your entry for Kennith Davis Ferbert. All data on the entry appears to be correct except the Death Certificate has his name incorrect. I am his youngest brother, Norman Levi Ferbert and his name on the web site should be Kenneth David Ferbert. If you should wish to discuss it, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi. You sent me an edit to add this woman as the mother of Royal Alexander Ritner, and I have questions about this relationship, so I am not approving the edit at this time. Would appreciate you emailing me privately to discuss this at email@example.com Thanks
|Robert L. Sellars||RE: Question re Charles A. Wilcox's Webpage|
Thanks Logan for your response related to Charles A. Wilcox.
If I didn't mention it before, I am adopted (my adopted name is Robert Sellars). My birth name was Russell Wilcox....hence my relationship to Charles A. Wilcox who was my great grandfather. His son, Truman Wilcox, was my grandfather. I have never seen, nor met any direct decendants (other than some cousins, who have been very helpful in my search).
Do you have any information re Charles A. Wilcox (1862-1923) and his marriages and his run-in with the law? Also, do you have any info regarding his son Truman (with what appears to be his first wife, Francis Skinner)? It appears that they married in 1886, then she divorced him in 1899 after his visit with the State Prison in Jackson.
Any info you have on Charles, his marriages (including Arminda Lampman), and his offspring will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Rob Sellars (Arizona)
