Bio Photo Dear Fellow Researchers:

You may use any of the information I have added to Find-A-Grave, including photographs. You may use them in your family tree records or you may add them to, etc. There is no need to ask for permission as I am delighted that you found it valuable to your research.

Corrections and suggestions are verified but rejoiced over.

You are encouraged to request transfers from me, especially if you have more information to add to the memorial. The only exception I might make is if the person memorialized is in my family tree, or was a close friend of mine.

The easiest way to facilitate a transfer is to use the edit tab on the memorial ("Suggest any other correction or addition") to make your request. Donít forget to provide your Find-A-Grave member number. Please be considerate as transfer requests will probably just fall through the cracks unless you provide your member number. (Your member number is at the top of your profile page.)

Due to time factors it might take awhile, but requests (especially from people who provide their numbers for quick and easy transfers) will be carefully considered. You will receive a response.

Find-A-Grave has been extremely helpful to me. I hope my contributions will be just as beneficial to anyone searching for more information about their family.

If you have a moment, please stop by and leave virtual flowers for my great-grand-uncle Gib Smith. His story is part of the reason I volunteer for this site. Thanks, Jan

Hi, Jan! Regarding the duplicate memorials for Emma Regina Vonada Tanner: I put up a memorial for her in 2010, Find A Grave memoral number 55481350. In 2011, a contributor named Cindy put up a duplicate memorial, Find A Grave memorial number 76695790. When I brought this to the attention of the contributor, she transferred her memorial over to me, rather than remove it, as requested. Because I did not create the memorial, I cannot delete it. I notified Find A Grave quite some time ago for instructions on how to deal with this, but have not heard anything back. My time on the genealogy trails is limited, and unfortunately, I have not been able to stay on top of this. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, and thank you for all your contributions to Find A Grave.

Hi Jan.

I have gotten a message that Lloyd Skinner has been entered twice in Find A Grave. By you on Oct 11, 2009, #42973286 and again by me on Dec 07, 2011, #81677869. Can we combine the information from both? I had included pictures of Lloyd as well as his obituary.

My wife Mary passed away on July 5 of this year and I am going to place her ashes in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery. We purchased a plot there. I was advised that if ashes were buried we could put up to 3 people in one plot. It is my intention to place a headstone for her father on it also.

Please let me know what I need to do to get only one record in Find A Grave.

You can contact me directly at

Thank you, Rod

I thought it no longer existed. I couldn't navigate myself around. There are lots of links, maybe I can do it now. :) Thanks a bunch. I'll let you know if and when I'm successful. Have a good fall season. Darla

Thank you so much, Jan, for the photo of the grave marker for Vernon Mitchell! I have removed the excess info from the memorial as you suggested. Much appreciated!

Thanks. You taught me something. I had never done that before.
