Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree for over 13 years and love the Find A Grave website.

Please use the Suggest a Correction feature under the Edit tab on memorials to send corrections, additional information or transfer requests. Please state your relationship in the SAC for any transfer requests. Also include memorial numbers for links that you wish to be added.

The Find a Grave guidelines for Transfer Requests is as follows:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses).

Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Florence and Tom Fish
I received the edits for Florence. Are she and Tom loved ones of yours? I will happily transfer them over to you if you'd like. They are of no relation to me.

I used to post obits to memorials until Find A Grave made me aware that it does not permit posting obits unless we have express written consent from the newpaper or web site from which it was copied.

This is what they say in the Help with Find A Grave section:

"Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published. Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed."

I thought the wording was a little ambiguous so I emailed the Administrator to clarify and his response was that we may NOT post obituaries unless we have written permission to do so.

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert

St Joseph, River Grove-Bernice Rinaldi
Hi-I've filled your request for a picture of Bernice Rinaldi's gravesite. To her left is her husband, Frank P Rinaldi (1908-1970). Then there are two other named graves to the left of that and then gravesites for:
'Father' Paul Rinaldi 1875-1941
'Mother' Margaret Rinaldi 1882-1959
'Father' Louis C Rinaldi May 12, 1903-Mar 5, 1973
'Mother' Sara T Rinaldi Feb 18, 1904-May 15, 1994
If these are yours and you create pages for them I did take pictures of their headstones so let me know and I'll post them to their pages.

Hi Karen -
I transferred M Louise Whitehouse to you before I read your second message, so the links to her parents still need to be done. Sorry, but am happy to have a relative managing the memorial.
Best regards,

Hi! In regards to your photo requests, can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery: 708-344-5600

Oakridge-Glen Oak is a huge cemetery with well over 30,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and I should be able to take a picture shortly after receiving the grave location.

Thank you! Ace

Mt Carmel-Marco
I have added pictures to the memorial pages for Pasqua and Carmen Marco. I also added pictures to the page for Frank Marco (1899-1964). Frank's wife, Helen (1910-1988) and son Richard (1938-1969) are also on the Marco monument. There are no pages for Helen and Richard. If you create memorial pages for them let me know and I'll post pictures there too...Mary
