Bio and Links
Bio Photo Feel free to request a transfer if you are related to someone whose memorial page I manage. I am happy to transfer management of all except those of my direct ancestors.

If you want me to delete a memorial page that I have created for your family member or close relative, just let me know and I'll delete it as quickly as possible.

I'll be glad to correct errors, link family members, and add some information. PLEASE NOTE: I NEVER INCLUDE NAMES OF SURVIVING FAMILY MEMBERS. Everyone who posts recent obits should be aware of this: some fraudsters and con artists use recent newspaper obituaries to scam survivors, especially recent widows.

In regard to Find A Grave Friends listed here, most of them have posted photos in memorials that I have created and still manage; some have been generous enough to transfer management of memorials to me; others have been fantastic about editing memorials; and a few are relatives who have assisted me with genealogical research.

RE: Hayes
No need to be embarrassed unfortunately it is hard to be accurate all the time. Besides who would have thought that the information in the obit would be wrong. If it wasn't for the headstone I would not have caught it either. If there is any information on your memorial that can be added to mine please add it to my edits and I will gladly include it to my memorial. They are not related to me either. I have just picked Trinity Cemetery to completely photograph and record to F.A.G. What an interesting and challenging project it has turned out to be. :)
I just had the same thing happen to me with a unmarked grave in Trinity also. My lady wasn't even buried in this county. And I would have never have caught it except that some one had sent me a bunch of requests to edit information on the family and the dates she had sent just did not match mine.
Thanks for all the work you do with F.A.G. I think it is a very important resource for people who are interested in their family trees and do not have the ability to see the graves in person because of distance or uncertainty as to where they are buried.
Happy hunting!!

I am writing in regards to the memorial you created in Oak Grove Cemetery, Manistee, MI for Ingeborg Hayes #99907116 she is actually buried in Trinity Cemetery Manistee, MI with her husband. If you would like me to transfer their memorials to you I would be happy to.

Thanks, Alice

Good Evening. Vern D Lee is my father. Could you transfer him and the rest of our family over to me? I am a new contributor, but have over 30 yrs of family research. From what I could gather on this site you are connected to the Giles line.

RE: Emma L. (Brown) Beachum
Joan, I made a mistake on Emma's age, it was 70 years "2" month and 12 days. I have copy of Funeral Record that I can send you, if need be.

Emma Louisa Brown Beachum is of no kin to me whatsoever. I am going through old Funeral Home records for cemeteries here in West Frankfort and Emma was on one of the pages, I copied. Kaye

Claudine "Sybil" Kirk Forner
There appears to be a discrepancy in Claudine's birthplace. She was either born in Spearman, Hansford County, or Stinnett, Hutchinson County.

Her official Texas birth certificate lists her birthplace as Spearman in the county of Hutchins. Two problems with this: There is no such Texas county as Hutchins and Spearman is located in Hansford County. The residence of her parents was recorded as Hutchins County.

The U.S., Social Security and Claims Index, 1936-2007, records Claudine's birthplace as Stinnett, Hutchinson County.

I have no personal knowledge which is correct.
