Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have put a great deal of time into creating many of these memorials. I am continually researching the memorials that I've created and often find more things to add. If you have some information you'd like added, let me know.

Please read the Find a Grave policy to see whether your request qualifies a transfer. If it falls within the guidelines, then, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the person's memorial page when you want to request a transfer since it provides me with the link to that memorial.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) will not be transferred. The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I am more than happy to have anyone add their personal photos of people on a memorial. However, I discourage adding death certificates and genealogy material in printed form out of a book.

Permission to copy photo of headstone
I would like your permission to copy the photo of your headstone for Linda Gaede Wichert and her husband Harry Wichert from your Find A Grave Memorial. She is a distant second cousin of mine and I would like to use the photo in my family tree. Thanks for your work for Find A Grave. Phyllis Nelson

Dr. William Lewis Gaines
I see that you have added the picture of Dr. William Lewis Gaines marker to 2 cemeteries. Can you tell me if he is actually buried at Memorial #7789654 in the Wheeler Cemetery in Wheeler, Wheeler, Texas, USA or at Memorial #42731107 in the Edith Ford Cemetery in Canadian, Hemphill, Texas, USA?
Many thanks,
Brenda Green

Graham Cemetery, Savannah, TN
I am just curious, you have made a memorial page for 2 of my great aunts (Lou Ella Blagburn Harville 138859348, Sarah Blagburn Harville 138871676) and placed them in Graham Cemetery, Savannah, TN. I have done extensive research on my family tree and although I have found that my 2 great grandfather, his 2nd wife and their son Luther are buried in the Graham cemetery, I have found no evidence any other of his children are there. I would like to ask how you discovered that my 2 aunts were in this cemetery and if you have information that I am lacking would you be willing to share that for genealogical purposes?
Thanks for your work.
