"11 years proudly at Find-A-Grave" I began my interest in genealogy about 30 plus years ago. My dear grandmother gave me very basic written information about my family history. It has been an amazing journey with many wonderful discoveries. The internet has been a wonderful tool. I have been very pleased to find my ancestors memorials on Find-A-Grave. So going forward I hope to return the favor for others by adding photos, information and editing family connections. I hope to have an opportunity to help you! *NOTE* Some of these folks are my family. The others are photos taken and added for the use of others in their genealogical studies. *You many copy my photos but it would be nice if you let me know...* Please contact me if you have additions, corrections,obits or connections. *Transfers* - FAG TRANSFER POLICY: How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me? First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested 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. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. Transfer requests that do not include relationship to deceased or are out of guidelines are deleted. I would be happy to transfer a memorial to you if the memorial follows these guidelines. Please don't try to hoard graves. I have worked quite a few years to have the numbers I do and most were added and photographed by me. You shouldn't be asking to transfer if you have no connection... It's always nice when you acknowledge the transfer so I know you received it! IMPORTANT *If you are looking for a "perfect" photo, it doesn't always happen when you have limited time to photograph large sections of graves. I try my best but I am unable to stop and care for every grave that needs assistance. Please request a Find-a-Grave photo through the "Request A Photo" button tab if you do not feel my photo fills your needs. Thank you! DR
