Bio and Links
Bio Photo A new "Automated" system for "Suggest A Correction/Submit an Edit" process was deployed by FindAGrave on December 5, 2013.

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You will now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

A much easier way for doing updates to names / Links/ dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

For almost thirty years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

I will no longer respond to transfer or up-date requests that are sent to me on the Message Board. Requests sent this way many times have errors and often slow things down.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Please do not post actual death certificates on my memorials. Instead, send the information shown on the certificate, & I will add it to the memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

You're very welcome, Virginia! It's great working with awesome people like you! I'm glad you have additional information to Pollie's memorial. This site is very valuable to genealogists. Have a great day.

RE: shryock Memorials
Thanks, Virginia.
You have fixed almost all of them.
You still have two memorials for Martha Shackelford Shryock

45134293 complete with photo of tombstone

45134544 can be deleted since it is only the birth and death dates.

Hey Virginia,

Could you please email me? I wanted to email you copies of Ray's 3 marriages.

RE: Ralph Hewlett
You are welcome. Another correction, though. Ralph Jr. Was actually Ralph Marion Hewlett. Birth records show Ralph M. His obit calls him Ralph Marion, died in Texas.

I've added the obit. Sorry for the delay... Looks like I skipped a time period the end of April in getting corrections/updates done. I think I was working on uploading pictures Id taken along with sending out corrections I just thought the few that came in were copies of mine that I'd sent out. :-). Just found when I was taking the time to see if ones I had sent out were done. :-). Thanks for all you do!

Oh, thank you so much for that obit. Dad would love it. It shows why so many pictures have him in Military uniform.
