RE: the three sisters that i can not find last names
I do not do research for others. I enjoy photographing the stones in various cemeteries to help others.

RE: the grabbe family

Have you read the FAQ by Find A Grave about transferring memorials? I'm copying what they say below. If you really want me to transfer them to you, kindly let me know which ones by the memorial number and also let me know your contributor id number.

I'd be happy to make any additions or corrections to the memorials I manage, but I've put an awful lot of work into getting the photos, photoshopping them, and creating the memorials. As I've done over 14000 memorials and over 20000 photos, it takes me time just to try to locate the memorials you're writing about. Having the memorial numbers would help a lot.

Here's what Find A Grave says:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in.

I'll await your reply.

RE: the grabbe family

How are you related to the Grabbe's that you want me to transfer to you?

I do not do research. I photographed every marker in several cemeteries in this area and added photos to already-created memorials that had no photos or I created memorials where none existed.

All the best,
Jim Bellert

RE: rose skaggs brother
Are you currently looking for Rose Skaggs brother Harry and if so do you think he's buried in Indianapolis?

Rosa Skaggs
Would you mind terribly posting the photo of Rosa, that would be a wonderful way to remember her on here?

Thank you,
