Bio and Links
1. Edits and other changes.
I am usually delighted to process your edits or suggested corrections. However I will neither do your data entry nor edit your spelling and punctuation. If information can be entered in specific fields, you will need to do that through the new edit system and I will accept or decline it. Other suggested changes such as biographies or requests for transfers will be honored via the "Suggest any other correction or addition" which sends me an Email with a link to the page and to you. I might fact check your information through resources available to me.
2. Transfers
I will transfer any memorial I have created on request except those for
a. my own ancestors or in my virtual cemeteries.
b. Nor will I transfer to anyone who is listed as "Anonymous" and has a blank profile. It is difficult to trust someone who is so concealed.
c. Nor will I transfer to the terminally rude unless you document the four generation proximity of relationship required by the FAQ.
3. Photos
I give explicit permission to copy and use any photo I have taken and posted on Find a Grave for your own genealogical purposes. No need to ask.

I am a retired Episcopal priest who has done genealogical work for her own family since 1990. I used to serve as a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer for Cottonwood County before that site closed. I'm still willing to do lookups. This is easy to do, as I live within a mile of the Courthouse and Historical Society. Or you can contact the Historical Society at They charge $10. per hour plus copying for research.

I am nearly done doing whole small cemeteries in Cottonwood County, Minnesota. The five of us working on that have finished all but the two city cemeteries. If I have been able to post a photo on the front page of a cemetery in CC you will find my status notes in the caption. [Feb 2013] Working on Mountain Lake from photos & register and Lakeview from a list. I am also working on comprehensive postings for columbaria in Minnesota Episcopal churches.

My daughter thought graving was a waste of time but I pointed out that it gets me out for a walk up and down "rows" in the cemetery. And a friend of hers pointed out that considering all the recent zombie movies it's good to remember this: It is far better to be looking for dead people than to have dead people looking for you! Enjoy!

RE: Emil Haseman
Sounds good fellow researcher. This was a fun cemetery to find. I hope you have time to visit it too one day.

RE: Sander(s) family
Thanks for your kind words. And yes, I am aware of the duplicates but unfortunately have not been able to clear them up either.

Request transfers
Thank you for adding memorial pages with grave photos for Elizabeth (Find A Grave Memorial# 128646210) and James Henry Warner (Find A Grave Memorial# 83027608). They are my wife's 2nd great grandparents. If you wouldn't mind transferring management of these two memorials to me, I will fill-in some family links and add more as I find them. Best regards.

RE: Annie Amanda Ewert
yes I am aware of the linking process.
I tried it again but it won't let me forward the
information to you. It must be waiting for something to be updated first. Bob

RE: Marilyn Sams
You're very welcome. There is a duplicate linked to her husband Leland's memorial. Maybe you could notify that person that it's a duplicate and link her to her husband? Thanks abd have a great day.
