Bio Photo Hi Everyone,

I'm doing genealogy research on my family and was referred to this website. Would like to help others in their research. I believe in the saying, "Pay It Forward."

Thank you to all those who have added additional information to the memorials that I have listed. Appreciate your dedication to this site. Thank you Find a Grave for adding the updated "Edit" tab.

God Bless and have a great day.


FAG Guidelines:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

Ruth, please remove your link of this memorial from memorial #100066653. The Jane Smoot that was married to John Franklin Wasson is memorial #100665011.
Thank you.

RE: wrong person, wrong parents, wrong family
Thanks! I originally contacted you because yours was the only name other than mine that was there. I didn't have anyone else to contact. I just looked and it seems the erroneous info is now gone. If you took care of it, I do appreciate it!
I just get frustrated with folks who "add" things based on assumptions and not actual research. If the person had only done basic research, they would have recognized their error. I am glad it wasn't you...and wish I could share my remarks with the culprit. Who knows what else they have done to other records! Thanks for letting me know ......and fixing it up. Enjoy your evening! Carol C.

I'd have much more family I would like to link to them (their children, siblings, etc.) in their Bios. Can you please transfer them to me so I can manage their memorials?

I was just trying to find out if you knew that this is Muriel B. Dennis, with the maiden name Benson... I don't know much about my Grandfathers family and was trying to find out. I know he had a sister named Muriel who she and her husband began Good News Publishing Co. She would be my mom's aunt, my great aunt... I was hoping to find more info on her and my grandfather's parents, his name is John Benson and he moved with my grandmother, Leona Barstow Benson along with all their children including my mother to southern California in the 50's probably maybe late 40's. Do you know if this is Muriel Benson who married Clyde Dennis?

wrong person, wrong parents, wrong family
Ruth, while it is nice to add things, please take care that you are not making assumptions. You added a grave and info on a Robert W. Bussman to my grandfather's memorial (Lawrence Bussman, NY) that I correctly set up. While he did have a son named Robert, it is NOT the one you have attached. Please remove all info on Robert W. Bussman from my Grandfather's memorial. That is NOT his son.
The one you found is the child of Bernard William Bussman and Catherine Elizabeth Meir. Their son was Robert W. Bussman and his wife was Mary Alice Baer. I have been doing this for years and teach geneology classes. It is best not to make such assumptions and add material to other people's posts unless you have verified it. It would simply involve contacting the person who posted and asking if it is correct. Other people can run with this erroneous info and perpetuate the error. Please remove this info promptly and find the right person to attach it to. Contact me if you need more
Thanks for your prompt attention to this mistake...which we all are prone to make!
