RE: Nora Kirwin
You Said:
"Hi Mike,

My name is Sherri Purcell formaly Sherri Kirwin. i wanted to find out if you may have a photo of the grave that you can post so that I can make sure htat htis is part of my family history. you can email me back at thank you for your time."

Don't know which memorial you are referring to so it would be best to go to that memorial, click "Edit" tab at upper right of page and send the message - you message will automatically include a link that will take me there.

I don't have any photos - I upload Sexton Reports show who is resting at the cemeteries and other kind soles add the photos, but I have some sites I can search and if I find one . . .

My goal is to transfer the memorial to family so if the memrial may be clan to you let me know so I can transfer it to you - for sure I am not related so I can offer a 'cousin' asking for info much of anything - that cousin would be related to you though, and you two may be able to complete a history and swap photo, etc.

RE: Carole Butlers pict
Hi Sherri, I just got the pics loaded to your mom's memorial. The problem with the item you were trying to load is that it's not a photo. It was a text document. I had to split it in half because the whole thing was too big for my pc screen. I wanted it to still be readable. I then used my camera and took photos of the document, thereby turning it into a photo. Please take a look at her page and let me know if those will work for now. They are better than nothing. If you click on them I have transcribed what is written on each page also. Take care, Nicole

RE: linking Carole and Gary
Hi Sherri, I linked your mom to Gary. Underneath the bio link on the memorial page there is a family link. When you click on that it will open a page allowing you to enter the memorial numbers for that persons spouse/s and parents. You have to have the memorial numbers for those people and you can only do this for memorials you have created. Since I added Gary to your mom's memorial she is then automatically added to his memorial page.

I did a photo request for both of them and the marker photos have now been added. They are not very clear unless you click on them to make them larger. Also, your mom's death date has been added yet. Once that is done another photo request can be made for an updated photo.

You never did email me any photos. I am more than happy to add photos of your mom if you email them to me. I can some of Gary to his memorial if you email them also.

Take care, Nicole

RE: Carole Butler
The cemetery name is Multnomah Park. I looked it up on I'm not related. Do you know how to send photos by email? If so I could then add them for you. I've had no luck trying to explain to people how to do it. You are allowed to have 5 photos up. I'm not sure if the cemetery one counts as part of that 5, I think it does. Then someone will also post a marker photo. That would leave room for 3 more personal photos. For a one time fee of $5 you can "sponsor" her memorial page. This allows 20 photos to be added.

RE: Harry Kirwin
I linked the two memorials and transferred both of them to you.

If you haven't done so already, a good place to learn about the site is the Frequently Asked Questions page. You will find a link on your Contributor Tools page or on the Actions menu under Help with Find A Grave.

RE: Harry Kirwin
Hi Sherri,

You're welcome, and thank you for the note. It's nice to know our photos are helping with family history.

If you would like me to transfer the memorial for Harry Kirwin, just let me know.

Also, is Harry J. Kirwin the father of Harry Leon Kirwin? If so, I can link them together.

RE: Carole Butler
Hi, I see you made a duplicate memorial for your mom. Find-A-Grave does not like duplicates. I have asked the website staff to "merge" the 2 memorial pages so no info is lost. This will take them anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

RE: About Carole Butler
First let me say I'm sorry about your mom's passing. Thank you for providing her cemetery. I was now able to request a marker photo also. If there is anything you'd like me to add to her memorial to make it more complete please let me know. As for her birth year -- 1948 was listed on her Social Security Death Index. Since you know what year she was born somebody in data entry probably just made a typo. I have corrected the year on her memorial.
