I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.
Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.
Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.
I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).
I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.
A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.
To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.
James Henry Roper obituary Might you please tell me in which newspaper the obituary of James Henry Roper is? I would like to find the obituary of his wife, Minerva Penrod and will begin by searching the same newspaper.
James Henry Roper obituary Good morning! Might I have permission to post the obituary of James Henry Roper to my ancestry.com web page? Also, might you be able to tell me in which newspaper you found this obituary? I am very much wanting to find the obituary for his wife, Minerva Penrod. I will begin with searching the same newspaper his obituary was found in. Thank you so much for your time and effort!
R.H. Perry I was wondering if we could merge our findagrave memorials for Robert Hoskins Perry? Your memorial number is #108769627 and mine is #140554773. I would like to include your two photos in my memorial if that is o.k. with you.
Sons Chapel Cemetery I noticed on a few memorials you created in Son's Chapel Cemetery in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas, you referenced a survey of the cemetery done in the late 1970s. Do you have a more specific source citation for this or know where I might find a copy? I'm trying to research a few older burials in this area. Thanks!
Memorial # 103864792 Marjorie Lovella McIntyre has another page: Find A Grave Memorial# 96994449. Could you please combine the 2 as #96994449 has her husband and other family member referred to. Your photo of Marjorie's grave marker is beautiful. Find A Grave Memorial #96994449 does not have a photo of her marker. My relation to Marjorie is that I am her former son-in-law. Marjorie's husband, Tom McIntyre, is buried in the Ralls Cemetery in Ralls, TX, Crosby County, TX. This is where Marjorie's other page 96994449 is located. Marjorie's daughter, Carol Sue McIntyre Long, lives in Springdale, AR. Thank you.
RE: James Marrs in Riverside Cemetery I posted good picture of the tombstone of James Marrs this morning. You can easily read the dates on it. When we photographed Riverside Cemetery we did it between the hours of 12 noon and 2 p.m. when the light was right on the tombstones and the writing showed up good. Joy RUssell
