Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a US Navy SKC(SW) retired and doing this just because I like to. I have received UNBELIEVABLE help with my genealogy research from several people on Find-a-Grave (and connected with long lost family) and will do the same in return, if I can. If you need any help with research in the Clark County WA or Multnomah County OR areas, just ask and I will do whatever I can to assist.

My primary surnames for research are indicated by my virtual cemeteries. If I manage a memorial and you are more closely related to the person than me, I will gladly transfer it to you upon request. However, please keep FAGs guidelines in mind:

First - Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second - Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third - If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created/manages the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth - Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor/manager may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth - The "Suggest a Correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor/manager will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth - Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Fair winds and following seas, shipmate.

I was also able to add Donald. If you create a memorial for him, I can add his photo to it. Cousin Bob

RE: Griffin Taylor
That would be great if you could forward them. My email is my "contact" address shown on Find a Grave. If for some reason it doesn't show up when you go to my F.A.G. page, let me know and I'll send it to your email. Thanks - Pete

RE: Griffin Taylor
Doug, sorry for the late reply. My wife went back into the hospital and rehab just about the time you sent your last message (March 30). Things are only now getting to be somewhat normal. So I'm finally back to Find a Grave When I went to the Griffin/Griffen Taylor site, I was unable to pull any of those documents up. My membership may have lapsed, I need to check. I'll try Griffen's documents again later. Pete

I am thrilled to report I am down to 950 memorials from 2800! Your willingness to foster has only made this possible. I apologize for the slow sending as I am reading each one that has biographies. Amazing work Dale did! Again thanks so much for stepping up to help out. I'm into the "M" surnames now so there are more on the way! Have a great weekend. Jen

RE: Maiden names
Hi Doug,

Thank you for getting back to me. Here is the passage from the FAQ - note fourth item down. Since only a handful of your memorials had the maiden names in caps, I thought it may have been something you did originally that you changed your method on at a later point. It doesn't look like you have more than a dozen that need changed.

Thank you,




What are your memorial naming conventions?

Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials

If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.

Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.

Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.

Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.

Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

RE: James Reynolds marker
You are more than welcome! That cemetery is off the road, abandoned, and in the backyard of a private home! I knocked on the door but no one was home. It would be great to have that cemetery cleaned and all stone exposed that may be under the earth. It was thrilling to see the one you wanted is exposed. Enjoy! Kateri

Just got your message. I'll check out what you found. Sounds great! Meanwhile I still haven't found his photo. But I will!
