Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I maintain a memorial for your family member or close friend and they are NOT my family member, I will transfer to you. (..PLEASE SEE TRANSFER PROCEDURE BELOW..)

I will no longer take action on transfer requests sent to me any way other than using the "EDITS TAB" on memorials I have entered as this gives me all the information I need to make a successful transfer.

I am not a "stickler" for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I do not "own" the memorials that I create, unless I am directly related to them. If someone was near and dear to you and you would like to manage their memorial, please ask.

It is not my intention to aquire large numbers of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.

********************NOTICE********************

Use the "Edit Tab" located at the top upper right side on each memorial to Correct Names, Dates, place of birth and death, to add parents and spouses, plot information. To request a transfer, send duplicate notice or bio information, use the "Suggest a Correction". Do Not use the public message for these requests.

====================================

*****"PLEASE (Out of respect) DO NOT post death certificates on any memorials I have "created" or "maintain" as the information on death certificates is not always accurate and the "Cause Of Death" does not need to be seen "THANK YOU"*****

=====================================

For me, Find A Grave is about Honoring the persons we create memorials for. It should NOT be a NUMBERS GAME.

Copied from another member's site which I somewhat concur with:

"I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started (one of the reasons) as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.

With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them."

======================================

Genealogy, begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation and in the last stages, is an incurable disease.

RE: Emma Jordon's mother's obit
her grandmother is Find A Grave Memorial# 37501870 and her obit is posted there giving some more info on this family if you are interested. I did edits to link these people up so maybe that will be done soon.

Memorial #141448220
I have just added a group photo to this memorial (comments are included on the photo). I thought perhaps you would want to move it below the main burial photo (or not).

RE: Edit Request for Emma Jordon
I was using the Texas Death Index for her death info (from Familysearch.org). However after seeing your message about her parents, I searched genealogybank.com and newspapers.com and found Emma's mother's obituary. I will try to send that to you. I did "edit" on Emma's memorial to set up the links to her parents. Her mother's obit gives a lot of info.

RE: Fort Bliss National Cemetery photos
Thank you so very much for the compliment. I try hard to get those headstones right and I lighten them with a program I have. It's really hard even with a new camera:) Have a good day.

RE: Elizabeth Wright Tarlton Edit request
I am doing the family genealogy for a Doctor in my church. I do this as a avocation. I have most of my lines way back. It is just fun. And I strive to be correct. Thanks for the help.

RE: Elizabeth Wright Tarlton Edit request
Elizabeth Millard Tarlton was the daughter of Benjamin William Dudley Tarlton Sr. and Suzanne Maria Littell. Elizabeth married George S. Wright of Dallas. On the grave stone her husbands name is listed first. This is wrong. Her maiden name was Tarlton, and married name was Wright.
