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.

Edna Annie Dillon Phoenix Mahler

I believe I managed to get all of the info that you wanted into Edna's entry. Brad had sent in her last name as Mahler---so that's what I added. But I put a note into her bio that she was married twice---first to Mr. Phoenix and second to an unknown Mahler.

RE: Marietta Hatch
I was wondering if you could transfer this memorial over to me. Marietta would be my 3rd great aunt on my father's (Edward Hatch) side of the family.

Hi Charlie,

Sorry that it took me soooo long to make all the corrections. I'm still working on it but hopefully get everything done today that you sent me.
Best regards,

RE: Lorenzo King
HI Charlie,

I am with you! I think if someone is related the memorial should be with them instead of a stranger, This is why I take the time is to just help others as much as I can. I was so blessed with help when I started Genealogy over 20 years ago, I look at it as paying back is to help others.

Have a Great Day!

HI Charlie,

I see that you are strict on the find a grave guidelines and i am about the same as well, But I did transfer your 3rd gr grandpa to you just wishing the same may come around to me some day.
I have had problems getting direct relation transferred to me by those that is not as giving.

So maybe you should be willing to bend some for folks since i did this for you.

Have a Great Day

Thank you Charlie, this will be an enjoyable challenge for me. It will be another year or so before I retire and have the time to be creative, or at least incremental, but I will enjoy that.
