Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do not adhere strictly to the FAQ suggestion (not a directive) that transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations (i.e., siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). I will transfer management of any memorial to any member of the extended family of the person in a memorial upon request with pleasure, provided that such person is equally liberal in granting transfer requests.

Personally, I'd rather have a memorial managed by a member of the extended family who has significant motivation to maximize the content of the memorial due to the family relationship than continue managing it myself. The distance back in time or the degree of relationship to that ancestor is irrelevant to the question of a person's commitment to the memorial.

Please provide your relationship to the person in the memorial when making the request.


This has been said about genealogy and I rather think that it applies with equal force to the volunteer work done here at Find A Grave:

Genealogy begins as an interest,
Becomes a hobby,
Continues as an avocation,
Takes over as an obsession,
And in its last stage,
Is an incurable disease.


If you would like me to take cemetery pictures for you, please include the grave location - one way to learn a grave location is to phone the cemetery; if a cemetery with thousands or even tens of thousands of graves has 20 photo requests and I have only an hour or two to take photographs, I am likely to select first the requests that include the grave location. Also, if you want multiple photographs (e.g., husband and wife), list both/all of them; I feel that I more helpful the more pictures that I take, so I am likely to give priority to a pair of requests.


If you would like to use one of my photos for your own personal purposes (e.g., to post on a profile on your family tree at, feel free to do so, but please provide attribution (along the lines of "Originally contributed to the memorial for [name of person] on Find A Grave by Charlie Morgan").


A note about the Transcriptions Field - it's very time consuming to complete. I concur completely with the following comment made by Stauffacher56 in a thread in one of the Forums here: "I think the transcription is about the marker and should include everything it says. If I omit something (usually due to readability issues, sometimes because living persons are mentioned) I'll mention the nature of the omission in the note field. Things like names and dates could be presented differently on the marker vs. the fields on the top of the page. Photos aren't viewable by everyone, sometimes they're not very clear, and sometimes there isn't a photo at all. The transcription fills those gaps."

By making a complete transcription of the inscription, we do a big favor to folks without eyesight who depend on electronic readers to speak the words of a website to them. Those readers cannot read photographs.

RE: Henry Meyer Find A Grave Memorial# 47753397
That was a typo. He was buried Feb 26, 1902. Here's the source for the burial records:

RE: Henry Meyer Find A Grave Memorial# 47753397
Not documented at all. It is estimated based upon the cemetery record of his age. I put it in because so he would show up on searches when people are searching on Find A Grave. Cemetery records indicate he was buried Feb. 26, 1907 at age 47. He is buried in a single grave in an area where people were buried one after another. Most are unmarked, as is his. If you think he may be a relative, I'm happy to transfer.

Re: Ernest Clark Overton
Hi Charlie,

Do you know if there's an Ernest C. Overton, or his wife, Evangeline M. (Smith) Overton intered in Evergreen Cemetery? Ernest was born at Henderson, Jefferson Co., N. Y., on 17 Aug 1894, and from 2nd hand information I received, died on 17 Oct 1987, in Pinellas Co., Florida. Too far for me to travel to Evergreen for a look-see!

Any help greatly apprecieated.

profile, etc.
Thanx, you will receive credit.

Another subject. Just after I hit the send button on my last, I surfed down your communications and noticed that you must have had a run in with ditdit. About three years ago I had a less than cordial exchange with (him/her/it) (that person). Somehow "IT" managed to post memorials and photos of my wife's parents in Massachusetts before I did. After many exchanges which became more and more adversarial, instead of either correcting the errors or transferring the management to me, he/she/it just erased all mention of the memorials including the links others had made. One of my cousins notified the Find A Grave management and I went ahead and posted new memorials with our photos. All is well and I should be over it.... apparently I'm not. Jerry

Your Profile
Hi Charlie:

I happened on a post you made sometime back on Bonnie Kehoe-Gove's page and was interested enough in the content to come to this page.

I really like your attitude and intend to plagerize (sp?)some of your monologue. Please consider it a compliment instead of an outright theft.

Check to see if the information is correct.

RE: Elbridge, Perlina and Dayton Hungerford
Charlie: Thanks for the note. The parent link info is confusing as I don't ever link to burial unkowns. I had them linked to Danica's memorials which were existing and old. She has relatives in the cemetery and we've both photographed there. Did she have them as BU's? For the Hungerfords, we would be related by marriage only.I'll send you the common family link. With the exceptional work of Mr. Cowin, I think we captured all - or almost all -- of the Moscow burials during the last 3 months. He added and photographed off an old transcription I had. Teamwork!
