Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

John Johnson
Hi I have a question. You created a memorial for John Johnson yet the newspaper clipping on the site says he is not buried here. The newspaper clipping agrees with his death record? Could you help me figure this out?
Both the newspaper article and his death record say he was buried at the West Oakwood Cemetery
Thanks so much

love you rant about transfers. i have been doing research for 40 years and people dont get how much love and time this takes. Do you perhaps have pics of the sides and back of the headstone for the above? 124223309/124223617. there is a small marker to the bottom right and i am curious about what that is.

Hello Richard,
Judy Marie Foster your Find A Grave Find A Grave Memorial# 110816522 already has a Memorial on Find A Grave Memorial# 92863661. She listed under her last husband's name Mallen in the Orient Cemetery. So since you are a rule stickler you may want to delete yours as this makes two memorials or as Find A Grave rules say there shouldn't be duplicates.

Wondering if you are familiar/related to this family. Trying to figure out if this is the James R. Copass who was originally married to Annie Belle Campbell. Thx, Candice
