KChaffeeB (169,918 Memorials)
Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot... (read more)
Graves (731,654 Memorials)
I'm caught up on auto-edits to 2/21 and email edits to about 2/21.

FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have an incorrect date without providing a correct date - requiring me to research). I'll get to them eventually but I process the change requests where the submitter has already d... (read more)

Once again I have had to remove my message board. Why? Because people use it for the wrong reason. Request must be made according to Find A Grave guidelines. No corrections or transfers will be made from message board.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials.

BKGenie (584,512 Memorials)
A big THANK YOU to all the transcribers helping with my pictures. I really appreciate it.

The memorials I have created on Find A Grave are a reflection of my interest in genealogy and data manipulation. Most are a result of me converting information from online burial lists. I sincerely hope I have made it easier for people to find their ancestor... (read more)
Stuart Strout Woodside Skolfield (218,812 Memorials)
I guess I was 12 when my uncle George started telling me of my family roots, and gave me a lot of research. If you see any information that is not correct, please let us know. More than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials, but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what ... (read more)

Tony & Cindy Lloyd (235,495 Memorials)
I live in Nebraska and recently took over the Genealogy torch from my grandmother. I have had numerous people take photos of cemetery stones for me and I thought I would like to do the same for others. My wife Cindy helps to take photos, enter names, and deal with the thousands of corrections.

Special thanks goes out to Jenn O. (#47041892) for a... (read more)
jlong (532,172 Memorials)
If you have found a family member Memorial on Find A Grave then you are the recipient of some kindness and effort on the part of a volunteer. Someone once said that creating Memorials on FAG is like the proverbial Message-in-a-bottleŚ being cast out onto the sea of the internet, waiting to be found and linked back to a family. I enjoy creating those M... (read more)
Cyndi (1,190,978 Memorials)
Please use the edit tab on the memorial to suggest corrections, request additional information be added, or to request a transfer.

RobMinteer57 (929,064 Memorials)
A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

I got interested in Family History in 2007, and in 2008 and 2009 visited hundreds of my "dead relatives", as my wife so descriptively put it. (I did meet many live ones, too.)

Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you wan... (read more)
Headstone Genealogist (428,244 Memorials)
A simple "Transfer please." is all that is required to request a memorial transfer. The transfer will usually happen. (Over 38,000 transfers to date)
Scout731 (225,852 Memorials)
Please NOTE:

I am a volunteer, just like many of you are.

Please do not ever justify anything you request changed or a person being transferred by stating you will notify F.A.G. if I do not respond to your liking. I keep all copies of requests and note why I did not honor it along with a follow up message to your board.

When you use my photos, please credit them back to me since I hold copyright, and more importantly so that others know the origin of the photo.

When making requests for edits or transfer, please use the SAC (suggest a correction) method from the edit tab on that memorial.

Twist (215,565 Memorials)

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

Not Forgotten (355,612 Memorials)
PLEASE ask me for transfers. I'm not trying to get a high number of memorials, that is not my goal. I DO NOT believe in their Find a Grave's relationship recommendation. Whether family, friends, neighbors or even someone you are researching - it's yours. I am not related to any of these people whose memorials I've created.

I'm trying to find lots of records for people looking for their ancestors. I try to do SACs within 48 hours (unless they're local to me, then I need time to add them to my spreadsheets) but may not have time to message you.

ABOUT FLORIDA NATIONAL CEMETERY: Am receiving emails I've entered memorials in the 'wrong' national cemetery. Florida has had five new national cemeteries open up since the 2010 VA upload for Florida National Cemetery. There continues to be an "exodus" of remains being moved to one of the new VA cemeteries (or moved completely to another state). PLEASE ... (read more)

Sally - Midcoast Maine (170,504 Memorials)
Thanks to everyone who sends edits and posts photo's. I think it is great seeing the missing info getting filled in.

Feel free to use my photos, they are there for everyone to use.

I am retired. Enjoy baseball (Atlanta Braves) and many other hobbies. I believe Find A is a wonderful idea and hopefully more people will help identify a lot of the ones that have passed before us.

Super Squirrel. Our family tree is full of nuts.

The German Gothic is crazy hard to read the characters. I live in Miami, Florida. As more Cemetery records go online this helps to... (read more)
