If I maintain a memorial for your family member or close friend and they are NOT my family member, I will transfer to you. (..PLEASE SEE TRANSFER PROCEDURE BELOW..)|
I will no longer take action on transfer requests sent to me any way other than using the "EDITS TAB" on memorials I have entered as this gives me all the information I need to make a successful transfer to you.
I am not a "stickler" for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I do not "own" the memorials that I create, unless I am directly related to them. If someone was near and dear to you and you would like to manage their memorial, please ask.
It is not my intention to aquire large numbers of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.
Use the "Edit Tab" located at the top upper right side on each memorial to Correct Names, Dates, place of birth and death, to add parents and spouses, plot information. To request a transfer, send duplicate notice or bio information, use the "Suggest a Correction". Do Not use the public message for these requests.
*****"PLEASE (Out of respect) DO NOT post death certificates on any memorials I have "created" or "maintain" as the information on death certificates is not always accurate and the "Cause Of Death" does not need to be seen "THANK YOU"*****
For me, Find A Grave is about Honoring the persons we create memorials for. It should NOT be a NUMBERS GAME.
Copied from another member's site which I somewhat concur with:
"I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started (one of the reasons) as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them."
Genealogy, begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation and in the last stages, is an incurable disease.

I don't know if that's anyone you might be looking for but thought I'd let you know just in case it might be helpful.
|Barbara Stott||Paul Cummings|
Thank you so much for filming his grave. Paul died in a car crash
in Tucson, AZ. We were all so young then, never got over it!

|Don Henderson||Cordye Miller Messer|
After reading Sue Messer Turner memorial 77874161 page, I see that I was mistaken. I have canceled the edit request. Glad you caught that. I do try to watch my edits before and after both, but best to prevent mistakes.
|Sarah Stead||RE: Transfer Donna Jane Littleton|
wow, I didn't realize you were related to the baby; I just saw you had her grandparents' memorials. I ran across her obituary while searching for something else and decided to create the memorial. I guess she must not have a stone or it is buried under dirt.
Glad I thought to transfer her to you.
|Deb Vondrasek||RE: William Claude McGee Photo request|
Thank you for your time in trying to find him.If you come across any other McGee's in that cemetery or you now have photo's of the stones, I am doing my genealogy for this side of the family and would like to have photo's of them.If possible, would you mind emailing me copies of them? I would really be in your debt. I live in East Texas and it's a journey to the area where they are.It would really be appreciated.Thank you again for your help.My email is justplaincountryphotography@yahoo
Best regards, Deb
|Rebecca Kaatz||RE: Rebecca Kaatz transfer|
Thank you for the transfer!
|Gary Murray||Elizabeth Wright Tarlton|
I was wrong. I found my Elizabeth Millard Tarlton Wright in Dallas, Sparkman Hillcrest. So sorry for the mix up. I appreciate your thoughness. As I too strive to be correct.
|Gary Murray||RE: Elizabeth Wright Tarlton Edit request|
Elizabeth Millard Tarlton was the daughter of Benjamin William Dudley Tarlton Sr. and Suzanne Maria Littell. Elizabeth married George S. Wright of Dallas. On the grave stone her husbands name is listed first. This is wrong. Her maiden name was Tarlton, and married name was Wright.
