Message from Paul Allen, Gare Allen's brother: See January 6, 2013 Update Below ***
Gare passed away on Dec 22, 2009. Gare had a lifelong passion for genealogy and created thousands of memorials on Find A Grave based on obituaries published on the internet.
If you are a relative or family friend of the deceased for one of the memorials Gare created I would be happy to transfer management of the memorial to you.
NOTE: I plan to keep ownership of all memorials to which I am related.
I receive many transfer requests. To simplify the process for me, please make a request by sending an email to email@example.com with the following:
- Name of the deceased - A link to the memorial (the link includes the memorial ID) - Your Find A Grave name and contributor ID
Note To Findagrave Volunteers: If you have "adopted" and care for memorials in one or more cemeteries in your area, I would be happy to transfer all memorials that Gare created in those cemeteries to you. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
- Name of the cemetery - A link to the cemetery (the link includes the cemetery ID) - Your Find A Grave name and contributor ID
January 6, 2013 Update I apologize for the delay on transfer requests over the past several months. I am now caught up with my backlog. If you had made a request that was not completed it may have been caught in my spam filter. Please submit the request again.
I created a separate email inbox for Findagrave requests to avoid spam filtering and to keep your request out of the clutter of my regular inbox. Please send all requests to email@example.com
Thanks, Paul Allen
