I appreciate and will be happy to add links, dates, bios and make corrections to any of the memorials I have created. I will gladly transfer memorials to any family members, as long as they are not relatives of mine. I respond promptly to each and every request, not like some FAG members, who MAY OR MAY NOT RESPOND AT ALL!
IF I HAVE ALREADY POSTED A PICTURE ON A MEMORIAL WHICH I MANAGE, PLEASE DO NO POST TWO OR THREE MORE PICTURES AS SOME PEOPLE ARE DOING. OFTEN, PHOTOS ARE MADE FROM TOO FAR AWAY! GOOD MEMORIAL PHOTOS ARE CLOSE-UPS, CLEAR AND EASY TO READ. FOCUS ON THE MEMORIAL! IF YOU THINK YOUR PHOTO IS BETTER THAN MINE, THEN EMAIL IT TO ME AND I WILL DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO ADD IT!
Techniques for getting GOOD photos of memorial stones/markers.
1) Go prepared! Carry a brush/small broom/weed clippers, etc, just in case some clean-up is needed before photographing a grave marker.
2)Take the entire stone with the surrounding area, AND ALWAYS TAKE A CLOSE-UP.*
3)Look at the back of the stone. You may find additional information there.
4)Choose the proper resolution. Low settings allow for more photographs, but higher settings are preferred for hard-to-read stones.
5)Avoid taking photos with the sun directly behind you. The shadow will be unattractive and you may recognize your own image in the photo. However, if this is the only option, take the photo and RETURN AT A LATER TIME FOR RETAKES.
6)*MOST IMPORTANT* Plan your camera position. Stones that are flat to the ground NEED TO BE TAKEN FROM ABOVE. However, stones that are positioned vertically will produce better results if taken from a low position. PUT YOUR CAMERA AT WAIST LEVEL OR KNEEL DOWN TO TAKE PHOTO.
PLEASE BEFORE YOU CREATE A NEW MEMORIAL, CHECK TO SEE IF ONE FOR THAT PERSON HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED. IF ONE HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED AND THEY ARE RELATED TO YOU, KINDLY REQUEST A TRANSFER...MOST FIND-A-GRAVERS ARE HAPPY TO TRANSFER RELATIVES TO THEIR RESPECTIVE FAMILY MEMBERS. PLEASE DO NOT POST DUPLICATE MEMORIALS
PLEASE USE THE PROPER CHANNELS: SUBMIT REQUESTS, SUGGESTIONS, ETC. THROUGH THE EDIT TAB IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL TO AVOID ERRORS. CLICK ON THE TAB AND THEN SELECT "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" AND TYPE IN YOUR REQUEST. If you request the addition of an obit, please include publication source and date. ***PLEASE DO NOT ADD OBITS IN THE FLOWERS AND NOTES SECTION!***

Hey Rilla, looks like we are working on the same thing, I had sent Cindy Smith info on Virginia but you had already requested the transfer, Do you have all the info on her? if not I'll re-send it to her edit tab. one thing to note, her obit states her mother as Beulah (the Aunt/mother who raised her)her bio mother was Beulah's sister Lillian Beatrice Silvey who died in 1929
