I am 32 years old, originally from Arizona, but I have been in Idaho for 17 years. I met my wife at BYU-Idaho, and we now have two beautiful daughters and two adorable sons. I have been obsessed with genealogy since I was very young, and I am happy to help others find their ancestors.
Lately I have been getting multiple requests for the same action in the same week. Please be patient. I generally take care of all of my emails on weekends, because I have a lot keeping me busy during the week. If I don't fulfill your request within a couple weeks, feel free to resend it at that point.
I contribute to this website because I have gotten so much out of it for my own research. I love finding records of my relatives' burials, and especially love when there is a picture of their grave included. My contributions are my way of giving back. I'm not trying to get the biggest numbers on my profile, although I admit that I check my numbers often. (I have a degree in Mathematics, I can't help it.)
I try to add family links, places, middle and maiden names, and any other information I can find to each memorial. If you have this information and I have not included it, please notify me through the Suggest a Correction link under the Edit tab. I usually get to them the following weekend. I will transfer family members, as long as they are not my relatives also, but I ask that if I transfer them to you that you be willing to update the memorial if anyone asks. One thing I hate is a "dead memorial," one that the contributor doesn't take care of and nobody can ever update again.
If you find a birth or death certificate for one of my memorials, please send me the link rather than adding it as a picture to the memorial. I love adding these extra links, and I think it looks better than a picture of a document.
I am also working on getting my entire family, no matter how distant, linked and updated on here. This involves a whole lot of correction emails. I don't generally include source information with my emails, because of the time it takes, but in most cases I have that information handy if requested. If you have received hundreds of emails from me, please be patient. I am not trying to annoy anyone, and I am not in a rush to have it done, I'm just trying to help make this site better for future visitors.
When I find a relative's memorial, I add it to my virtual cemeteries under the branch of my family that they come from. As of Apr 1, 2016, I have 28967 relatives found on Find a Grave. I usually leave flowers on relatives' graves if they don't have any yet, because I don't want any of them to be forgotten.
Geraldine Miller 105709 Hi, I submitted a death certificate for my cousin. I appreciate the link you set up to her cert. but it is not working. Would you be willing to put the cert. on her page? Thanks, Jo Ann
VELMA ETHEL CLUFF SPEER MARTIN fag # 74506140 Hello, I am the Aunt of Velma Martin. I am doing the Martin Genealogy and am requesting a transfer of Velma to me. I only accept Family members on Find A Grave, so adding her to my family is important to me and my family. She is buried less than a half mile from me and therefore she is remembered, when I visit my 2 sons there. Thanks for the consideration. Jerri Sellers Martin Find A Grave # 48130138 email@example.com
Emma Blanche McCurdy F-a-G Memorial 102959970 Logan: Just curious -- I see that you left flowers on this memorial and your bio says you do that for family members so they won't be forgotten. I was wondering how you are related to Emma Blanche and her family -- Fred A and Rachel Ann (Walton) McCurdy. Fred is the brother of my great-grandfather.
Request Info Looking for what ever info I can find for Bradley Foch Williams Find A Grave Memorial# 60019028. I think this Bradley might be a classmate from Cupertino, CA. I cannot locate anything info regarding him. Anything you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.
Randolph Fife 1919-1992 Thank you, Logan, for adding more details for Randolph Fife's memorial. I only took his grave photo to help his relatives find him. If you or your wife are related, would you like to maintain his memorial. My wife tells me his wife Norma was killed when they stopped beside the road and another car hit her. He deserves a bio by those who knew him. If not related, how did you find the missing information on this Gridley man?
