If I add marker or cemetery photos to a memorial or cemetery that already has a photo, it has nothing to do with you. Many times it's just a slightly larger photo of the marker, or a closeup, or a different angle. Or sometimes it's just because I have a lot of heart involved in a person's memorial. The main reason is that markers deteriorate so quickly sometimes that I want to preserve as much as possible while we can.

I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years. I had never made a major focus on cemeteries or burials until the last 10 years or so. Now they are very important to me, since I've learned how much more they can tell us about family and history.

Like most of you probably, my family and friends attempt to hide my eyes or distract me when we pass a cemetery. I could probably find a burial related to me or someone I know in most cemeteries in the United States

Most of all I'm grateful to all the wonderful individuals who created and maintain "Find-A-Grave" to help preserve the memories and images of our world-wide family, as well as the other everyday people who contribute here!

John Hall Memorial
Good Evening. John Hall is my Great Great Great Grandfather. You created and maintain his memorial. Are you related to the family?
If not, would you consider transferring his memorial? His record is below.

I also maintain his son John H. Hall's record. I've added biography information that shows John as his father and Emily Bailey his mother, his brothers and sisters, and children.

John H. Hall's memorial info is below. I'd like to create a similar biography for John Hall.

Benjamin Stoddard
I saw that Benjamin's parents were listed as Ebenezer Stoddard and Susannah Hall. Do you have any information about that relationship. I cannot find any definitive data online. Thanks so much. I appreciate all of your work.

Duplicate Memorials
Thank you for your second message today. Over a year ago you advised me of the situation with duplicate memorials. In the past three weeks I have contacted three different contributors who have created duplicate memorials for the Thayer family. We are all learning what the rules are and I appreciate that we can nurture each other as we learn. It was brought to my attention this week that my goal should not be to own the memorials, but to flesh out the information for the benefit of everyone no matter who manages a memorial.

Have a nice day!

Is it possible to check and see where the info originated that places Elizabeth as being buried in Old Towne Cemetery in Darien, New York. The cemetery is also known as Humphries and Broadway Rd. I ask because I am adding names to theis cemetery using this site and she is not listed as being buried in this cemetery. I will await a reply. Thank you for your time.
