Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have found memorials, many with photos of gravestones, for many of my ancestors on this site. I have used the Photo Requests feature to see the gravestones for other relatives as well. The members and volunteer photographers have responded wonderfully!
I think this is such a wonderful resource, for a lot of reasons. I am delighted to be able to volunteer as well by fulfilling Photo Requests of nearby cemeteries,when time allows, from people just like me and you who would not be able to see the grave sites of their relatives or loved ones otherwise.

If I have created a memorial of your family member, it was with great respect and the hope that someday you will find it and want it transferred to you (see "Help with Find A Grave" for transfer guidance. NOTE - I follow FaG guidance on transfer of close ancestors.) Let me know if I can help or if you have some additional info, I will be pleased to add it for the memorial. Please use the "edit" tab on the memorial for these suggestions or transfers.

Transfer of Memorial
Some time ago I mistakenly created a memorial for my wife's step-father.
I am requesting the transfer of the your memorial of my wife's stepfather. He was the only in-home father she ever had, her biological father being separated from the family.
Adding the memorial to my list would enable her and me easily to add information as our genealogical searches progress. Thanks.

The Memorial for

Wallace Albert Anderson (112396464)

Hello again Rick,
Thank you for your generosity in transferring:
John Joseph Perrell, Jr # 126058094
to my care.
I have successfully connected him with parents and his wife.
As I receive more information, I will add it to Our shared memorial. And yes, I will take good care of him as you asked.
With sincerest appreciation,

Thank you so much for the photo - it's simply wonderful - her husband is on the marker, and I had no information on my family records as to where he was buried - now I know. Thank.

I'm going to make a memorial for him tomorrow morning. When I have it ready, I'll place a request for this same photo to be placed on his memorial.
This is really great - thank you...
