Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of Knox County, Illinois. Resident of Henry County, Illinois. Avid genealogist. I love visiting cemeteries and taking photographs when time allows. I try to keep my eye out for local photo requests. I try to focus on the local cemeteries in my area that have not yet been photographed and also visit random cemeteries when I travel.
Per Find A Grave's rules:
Transfer requests should be for DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

BULK SURNAME REQUESTS SHOULD NOT BE MADE. Do not request a transfer based solely on a common surname.

Many people request well outside these guidelines. I do make exceptions in some cases. Examples would be your best friend, your brother in law, your sister in law, your parents siblings. But you do not need to request a transfer to add information, that can be done via the EDIT option.

There seems to be a growing trend of people who have joined FAG and are not contributing by making any additional memorials but only requesting transfers of any relatives memorials they find here.

I always respond to edit suggestions sent via the EDIT tab. I only refuse the suggestion if I am personally aware that incorrect info is being suggested. I will add pertinent condensed info from an obituary but please don't send me edit suggestions asking to include complete obituaries on recently deceased individuals.

The full FAG rules on transfers are found here~~~

Thanks so very much for the transfer. It is so heard to find obituaries from that time era and when I saw hers I thought it deserved to be on her memorial. It is posted if you care to take a look.
Thanks again,

RE: Martha Lawson
You're welcome. It started raining but I managed to get this pic. Unfortunately I didn't get your requests at a nearby cemetery due to the condensation problems with my camera. I'll try next time I'm in the area if they don't get taken before then.

Thank You for creating this memorial. My Mom passed in 1986. She was real close with Aunt Anna. I have been looking for her memorial to link with the family.
