Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE DO NOT ADD EDITS THAT ARE INCOMPLETE, for example, birthplace/death place is USA or just the state, also if you don't know the exact date for birth or death don't send just the month. PLEASE DO NOT ADD COPIES OF OBITUARIES IN PLACE OF A PICTURE ON MEMORIALS. I take the time to verify your info just to find you took it from a census or the SSDI. If you look at more than one census it often will have different months. Ancestry is NOT always correct. I look up obituaries and often find the person did not die where the SSDI says they did. People often die at a hospital,nursing home or out of state.

I don't mind transferring memorials outside of Find A Grave guidelines but I do mind when people demand transfers or are rude. PLEASE provide your connection, not just"they are a relative" With having a link to Find a Grave I have had way too many requests like this. I prefer not to transfer outside of guidelines if you have not been a member of Find a Grave very long or don't ""pay it forward " on here, by this I mean adding names other than your relatives or only names from the newspaper and rarely or never adding photos. If I am related I will not transfer. PLEASE include your #. Adding memorials and pictures I have taken takes time as does making edits. No one is perfect!!!


We enjoy taking pictures, walking cemeteries and helping family find family they have been searching for. I am very appreciative that someone took the time to put an aunt and two uncles who died as babies onto Find A Grave. I would have never known where they were buried.

# 93156670 Oak Hill Cemetery, Macoupin County, Illinois. Do you know if there are any records for this cemetery? I would like to know if there is a lot card for this memorial, or if you could be so kind to share where the information for the memorial came from. Thank You.

Thank you! Your hard work should be recognized. I always try to ask. Sometimes I have to use the edit because no email address is given but I really try. Becky

Any chance you could transcribe what is written on Reverend Caldwell's gravestone? I am looking for the burial site of his wife, Zeralda Americus Meldrum, my great, great aunt, and I cannot tell if her name (and dates) is also on this stone.

This is to let you know that you need to change death year of Lydia Thomas from 1882 to 1892. As I made a close up of her tombstone which does still show one of the digits to be "9". As she was one of my maternal cousins on my Lee line. Frank

RE: Carl Earthal 97993834
I request tons of corrections for memorials here in findagrave. And they see everyone of them with newspaper obits, death certs, etc. and NEVER remove or write anything to me. Maybe when they built Find A Grave, they thought this was good policy, but they sure are ignoring it now!

No, I will take good care of them, until someone closer related comes along.
