|First, I would like to state that Find a Grave is a very good source for finding relatives from the past. The "good deeds" of the participants have been beneficial to descendants looking for lost relatives seeking the final resting place of the forefathers/mothers. However the good intensions lose there luster when individuals list the memorials to obtain a high level in Find a Grave's society or immortality. My listed memorials are related to me and I will maintain my "Direct Line" of memorials but regardless of the BS rules set forth by Find a Grave's creators I will transfer all other memorials to a direct line descendant upon request and proof of lineage. I have no desire to hold memorials from their descendants. |
Next since all memorials are related to me I will do my very best to grant all photo request sent; however, this does not mean I will wonder aimlessly through any cemetery. I need to know at least the section of your relatives' final resting place. I will also search the local historic newspaper to find a death notice if I am given an approximate date.

|Larry Young||Frank Young's Death Date|
Ancestors, I attached a photo of a Frank Young's/104112581 headstone to his memorial. Is this correct marker? The birth year is off by one year, but the death date agrees. Could this the correct marker for the person on the memorial? Was he married to Etta Young? Thanks! Larry
No, I am not sure of his middle name. I was working off a transcript. It's possible that his middle name is Norris instead of Morris.
|Lynn Burbank||RE: Burbank|
I would gladly accept the transfer of the Burbank plot, however if you wish to keep it that is perfectly fine with me. Again, thank you for adding them to this site.
Thank you for the addition of the Burbank Family plot in Washington DC. Those are my husband's great aunt, great grandfather, great grandmother, and grandparents.
Thanks for the info on the "Norris Family Book"
P.S., my Norris line was from MD. That's why I was looking at your pages. :)
|GenealogyJoan||RE: Alice Tyler Birth date|
I only read the obit placed by Mcpherson, and did the math. Maybe they got it wrong, though. It said she was 82. The certificate is probably more accurate. Have a great day! :)
|GenealogyJoan||RE: contributor Diehard|
My thanks to you! True enough what you say about people making their own rules, I guess it's all in their interpretation, but we can resolve to do the right thing. This great website has actually put me in contact with several cousins from my family lines, and has been very rewarding. Plus I am able to visit memorials I could not visit otherwise, and It's great! Stay on the plus side Alan, it works every time! Blessings, Genealogist
Dear Alan Holcomb, I too have been treated poorly, and with indifference from contributors. And I don't even know who Diehard is, but I ask kindly that you remove your comment concerning them, and focus on the good work being done here on this website. It doesn't take much to figure out what you are saying to them. I ask "please", and I wish you a very good day. Sincerely, Genealogist. Delete this message if you wish :)

Aha! the old computer software routine! Mystery solved, Alan. Thanks for the speedy reply.
I guess I'll leave my Zigler memorial on the site then. If you or your wife ever discover his connection to your family, let me know & I'll transfer the memorial for you.
I looked in the Baltimore Sun archives for a death notice for him, but didn't find one.
Happy genealogy researching,
And, thanks again,
