|Bio and Links|
I live in Kelso,WA the County Seat of Cowlitz County, close to the mighty Columbia River. I have been doing genealogy for about 20 years. I do a little research on every memorial & try to link them to family if at all possible, I have many memorials which are not family. I really enjoy going to cemeteries & taking photos.|
****IF YOU WANT ME TO ADD INFORMATION OR LINKS PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB ON THE MEMORIALS, DO NOT USE THE MESSAGE BOARD FOR ADDITIONS & LINKS.**** Also please include the memorial numbers of family you want linked, I will not link them if I have to hunt for the memorial you want linked. It is much easier to locate the memorial using the edit tab.
Grave photos I have taken & any family photos I have shared you have my permission to copy.
**** PLEASE FOLLOW FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERS. ****
I will no longer transfer to just any relative only direct descendants. I do, however go beyond the 4 generation as long as they are your direct ancestor & not my direct ancestor or my 1st & 2nd husband direct ancestor. I will also transfer non-direct relatives if the person in question has no descendants. Siblings of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins & so forth are not included in the guidelines, only DIRECT descent & immediate siblings are included in the guidelines. ***I WILL ALSO NOT TRANSFER JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO ADD INFORMATION OR LINK FAMILY, RULES STATE EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE FOR NON-DIRECT RELATIVES & IS ONLY IF THE CONTRIBUTOR WANTS TO TRANSFER, NOT JUST A SIMPLE COPY & PASTE BIOGRAPHY FROM A BOOK, BUT ALSO BIRTH, MARRIAGE & DEATH RECORD INFORMATION FROM ACTUAL RECORDS, CENSUS INFORMATION,OBITUARY, A COMBINATION OF MORE THAN 1 SOURCE WOULD BE CONSIDERED EXTENSIVE.*** QUOTE FROM GUIDELINES: "Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."
I have had a lot of people requesting hundreds of memorials & they are only distantly related or not related at all. ***I REPEAT ONLY DIRECT DESCENDANTS I WILL TRANSFER TO.*** However, I will transfer if there is no descendants of the person to a relative. I do bend the rules if there is a very good honest reason for a transfer. I have transferred to people for being honest & straight forward & not cite the extensive information in the guidelines for non-direct relatives to get what they want, honesty is a much better way of getting what you want. Please be aware my intentions are to keep these memorials in my safe keeping until a direct descendant comes along. I do not plan on hoarding the memorials for my glory or as some have called a findagrave snob. I am honoring them, they were once living people & should be remembered. I am truly sorry I have to be so strict but a few people have ruined it for all.
NOTE: MILITARY SERVICE will be added in the bio line of the memorials. I will not add rank to the name if they did not die in service to their country. I believe in memorializing their full life rather than the short time they served their country. They had lives other than serving their country & military service is but a small part of their lives but should be recognized for putting their lifes at risk to protect our country.

Hi. I would like to request a transfer of the following records:

Thank you for considering my request.
|Denise Sproed||Attridge Memorial Updated|
Thanks for the info. I had a bit more info that I hadn't added to the memorial as well so if this is a line in your family, I included more details from the death certificate on the memorial. I was researching the ATTRIDGE's, not the WOOD's so I appreciate your sharing the links to her parents.
|VJ Litton||Nancy Jane Woodrum Light|
Hi, thanks for the information! Yes, Olive (Ollie) is the other daughter of Elijah and Nancy Light. She was born just about 3 miles from where I live and according to the death records from the Archives, she died at O'Dell which is where all my ancestors lived. Our O'Dell Cemetery is out there and there are a few unmarked graves but unfortunately, I do not know if she would be one of the unmarked ones.
Thanks for connecting the family for me! I appreciate it very much.

thanks kindly I did not expect the transfer, really but I do realize its a different situation I've never encountered before and I do so appreciate it very kindly, you are very sweet. I will do my best to explain and honour this man who died so young and his kids knew him so shortly. I think its an awesome expression of love they did the memorial for him. I also noticed on his stone in OR it has Native of WI on it and had not noticed before as the stone is hard to read and had to enlarge it, but he certainly was loved by the inscription family or his wife did as I know she was distraught over his sudden death allot, and I also noticed on the other stone there for him he was also a Mason! bless you, happy trails~~
