Bio and Links
Bio Photo For almost thirty years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

I will no longer respond to transfer or up-date requests that are sent to me on the Message Board. Requests sent this way many times have errors and often slow things down.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Please do not post actual death certificates on my memorials. Instead, send the information shown on the certificate, & I will add it to the memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

RE: Tom & Jettie Burnett
And thank you! By the way, there will be more shortly. I took quite a few photos at Sandy Cemetery a week or so ago and I'll try to learn all that I can about the folks buried there. Those that have memorials under your care may have biographical information and if I find this I will pass it along to you. As you said, however, research takes a lot of time.

RE: Thedford Martin
Thank you for adding this information, Virginia. Wasn't asking for credit, but appreciate your thoughtfulness. I just like seeing these memorials as complete as possible.

Thank you Virginia...
You are one of the real Find A Grave talents, easy to work with, a great researcher and you document, document, document. If there were 10 more like you we could turn Find A Grave into one of the finest genealogical memorial sites anywhere. Thanks for being such a professional and best of all for being so great!

RE: Lorene Peters
I changed it to Parkersburg since they lived right across the river in Belpre, OH in 1930/40. The 1940 census lists her birthplace as Ohio.
Thanks for your help.

Lorene Peters
I'm sorry that I didn't check my emails earlier. I won't be able to transfer Lorene to you. She was my dad's first cousin and she was always a special person to us. She and I did genealogy together in the 80's. I owe her for many of the leads and stories about my dad when he was a kid and they both lived with their grandparents. I have a small portrait of her dad sitting right in front of me at my desk. I'm not trying to be selfish with her memorial, but she was a very special lady to me. If you have a biography that you want added, please send it.

Nancy Matilda Forrest Faver
Virginia, do you have a clue as to why Nancy Faver was in Foard County when she died? Did she have family there? I am working on cemetery records for the Crowell Cemetery. Cyndy
