Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm caught up on auto-edits to 8/15 and email edits to about 8/1 (with a few exceptions of transfers and complicated requests). If you don't hear from me it isn't because I'm ignoring you. All of my Find-a-Grave emails go to my email account set up specifically for Find-a-Grave. I only read those messages when I'm sitting down to work on Find-a-Grave - not every day.

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 done the research first. I get a tremendous amount of change requests...

I transfer memorials liberally - just ask. If you want all of a particular last name in a cemetery to take on as a personal project or if you want everyone in the same plot, I can do that too (as long as they are my memorials). I have plot information for most, not all, of my memorials. I've rethought this and have decided not to make out-of-guideline transfers to members who insist on guideline only transfers when transferring their own memorials to which they have no relation.

Thank you for all of the corrections.

Obituaries - copyright laws are murky in regards to obituaries and Find-a-Grave's new policies don't really clear it up. I prefer not to post a word-for-word transcription of a newer obituary - a summary is better. Regardless, I will remove names of possible living people (for privacy) before posting.

Please don't leave change or transfer requests on my message board. It's extremely difficult to keep up with these types of requests and I miss most of them. Requests should be made with the edit button on the memorial

Looking for someone interested in translating Latvian historical records.

Thank you!!!

Hi there,

I noticed you left virtual flowers on this grave. I'm not sure if you're related, but just wanted to let you know that I recently visited this grave and posted pictures of the headstone in case you're interested. Have a great day!

Lee Roy Shaw
I have recently discovered that there are two memorials for Lee Roy Shaw. #90028421 & #90028422. After corresponding with the man who fulfilled a request for the photo for his wife Palmyre I found out that Lee Roy was moved from the original burial plot to his wife's family plot.I have edits in for both of them and I'm requesting that you delete #90028421 since he is not there.I would also like to thank you for creating their memorials and applaud you for the massive amount of work you have contributed to this site. The Shaw's are my fifth cousins.
Regards, Dianne

Transfer of grave management
I wonder if you would consider transferring the management of Laurene Clayton (nee Laurene Hacker), Find A Grave: 87582733. Laurene was my husband, William Ross Clayton's first wife. She died unexpectedly and suddenly. I am Bill's second wife, and do the family history. Thanks for your consideration. Anne Clayton

Graves -- Yell at me if you want me to slow down on edits, mainly for birth dates on grave stone photos. How do you watch over all your sites? It must take a lot of your time. Thanks for all the help with these edits!! Tom C.
