Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pre-script -- My account has more than 5000 memorials, about 500 or 600 of these are family members for my husband and myself. I would be more than happy to transfer outside the "guidelines". Just ask. Any relation or friend situation. I am not a selfish person. Some findagrave folks treat memorials like baseball cards and horde them. For what end?! I say --- Guidelines, Schmidelines..... There would be less problems and bad feelings all around if there were more generosity. But if there were no guidelines, some people would never even learn how to do a transfer...... I put information on this site in the hopes that someone someday asks for a transfer of a great grand aunt or uncle or cousin. This just means that people are looking....Happy to help!

My first stop in a cemetery is any photo requests, then it is the small white markers with the little lambs; the ones that are slowly giving in to the elements. Next, Veterans from any war, especially the Civil War, they seem to be forgotten about. This summer has been spent on many a gravel road with map in hand looking for the small out of the way cemeteries in this area. Sometimes hubby comes along.

More than happy to transfer any family, except of course, my relatives. Gladly will make any corrections, additions or relationship links. The great thing about findagrave is so many helpful, friendly people adding pieces to the genealogy puzzle.

RE: cemetery number
Hi kateb,

You're right, the cemetery will need you to contact them directly. It could be that they just missed him in their records. You may need to get a copy of his death certificate next, if they can't find him for you. Maybe he was cremated and is in the mausoleum? I can't imagine them missing that, but sometimes things happen. The people that work at the cemetery are very nice, so you should enjoy speaking to them.

There aren't any other cemeteries in the area named "Greenwood." There are, though, tons of small, private cemeteries.

Once you find him, send me a note and put in a new photo request and I'll make sure I claim it asap.

Good luck!

A gene pool that surpasses death! Amazing! I am guessing by the way, that the information was sent to me and I added it. Given that I am not from the area, I generally don't make connections unless I am told of the ties. There are simply too many Andersons, Larsons, Nelsons, Jensons, Jensens, etc. Of course, I should have checked the material.
