Genealogy is one of my passions. I have been helped by countless volunteers and am always looking for ways to repay that generosity. Findagrave is a perfect outlet for that. |
My current 'project' is Bellerive Cemetery (aka Hiram Cemetery). Within the next year I hope to post photos for all memorials listed there, that do not have a grave photo on findagrave. It's such good exercise to walk around it, so this obsession of mine has multiple benefits :)
I want every memorial I have added to contain the most complete and accurate information available. If you submit a correction to me, please include the source of that information.
I am not in this for the numbers, and I am happy to transfer memorials within the Findagrave Guidelines. Memorials should be maintained by family and friends when possible. If you see that I have added a duplicate memorial, or one of your relatives that you would like transferred, just let me know.

Thank you for the photo and also letting me know I could now add the birth year for Lillie. Appreciate your help.
|josiahschmidt||RE: Jolene Esau Watzig|
If you're not related to Jolene Watzig, I'll be happy to manage her memorial. I am a distant cousin, but I could hold on to it until someone more closely related comes along and wants it from me. Thanks. :)

Thanks. I double entered his memorial by mistake. Thanks for the picture also
Just because someone asks for a transfer is not following Find A Grave guidelines:
"Editing & Correcting Memorial Information (Find A Grave Q&A)
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested 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 should 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 should 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 should 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."

|Judy Miller||Thanks for the token|
Thank you for visiting Grandpa Clingaman's Find A Grave site and taking time to read his story. Obviously he and I were buds but I was too young to remember most of it. I do remember the interview when he turned 103. All the chairs lined up and people coming to the house. It is a privilege for me to have been in his life.
|campbell2u||RE: Belle Smith Lattin|
The headstone next to Belle is Lewis Smith. There is a memorial for him # 32563097 and I added the photo.
Was he her 1st husband? Bertha and Charles Smith and Lewis C. Smith Sr. are on the other side of Belle.
I will check in the office to see if Narva is buried at Maple Hill and let you know. There are other Lattins but no Narva.
|K. E. P.||William and Alice Kempf|
Thanks so much for the photos of William and Alice Kempf's graves. I also deleted the duplicate.

Claire, Thanks for transfering the Braddy graves sites to me.
Thank you for alerting me to linking Bill's parents. I appreciate the help.
|Sandra Braddy||Memorial# 102955629|
Claire, Would it be possible to transfer Memorial# 102955629 for Lloyd and Alma Braddy to me. They are my husbands Uncle and Aunt. You do a great job taking pictures of the headstones. This is a blessing to those of us that are not able to do this.
