My husband and I enjoy finding monuments for other people and am extremely grateful to the volunteers who have found my own people for me. We've been working on finding the little pioneer cemeteries in the area and putting their inhabitants online. Four of our memorial pages even helped to catch a gravestone thief. Cemeteries are extremely vulnerable to vandalism, theft, negligent cattlemen, and the damage of time and weather. We appreciate all of the volunteers out there who are working so hard to document them before they are lost to history.

I'm not a numbers addict or collector, but I adhere to Findagrave policy:

◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website.

◊Find A Grave's secondary purpose is a memorialization/remembrance site.

◊Find A Grave's tertiary purpose is a genealogical resource.

Transfers are only made within the guidelines set up by Find A Grave. "The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I am willing to consider transferring ownership to you if you have a close family member among my records. I rarely transfer relationships more distant than first cousin... just having someone "in my family tree" or "a relative" will not elicit a transfer.

If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "Edit" tab to send me the information-- including family links. I will add information to the memorial, I do not transfer just because someone wants to add links or other information. Bottom line: what are you planning on doing with the entry that I haven't already done or am unable to do?

On the other hand, if you upload family photos or in some other way add value to the memorial, I am much more willing to transfer. I will always transfer a memorial if you sponsor it.

I welcome all corrections to my own work. Some records were imported using OCR so have inevitable errors, both from the original records and from machine interpretation. I am only human and make mistakes, too, but will always make it priority to correct them.

Willard Weimer
Hello. You had claimed a photo request for me on Willard a week ago, however, after his sons funeral we (his fam) spoke about his memorial on here, and I found out he is no longer buried in Oregon. His Granddaughter and I sent you a transfer request, however, did not hear back, thus we have created a new memorial that we will manage, with the correct burial information, as guidelines allow. Thank you for your time and we appreciated your willingness to help us out. Have a great weekend.

Fulmer grave photo at Durham
Hi Carrie & Allen.. I was wondering if perhaps you may have come across a grave marker for one Josephine Rusling Fulmer ( b)1868 & d) aft. Feb 1942) while you were photographing the marker for her son, Raymond Stover Fulmer, memorial #16896938? There isn't any memorial for her at the Durham cemetery, but her husband, Rev. Llewllyn Stover Fulmer is also buried there and I was hoping that you might have also snapped a photo of her stone as well.

Any info or help would be greatly appreciated.

Willis and Marge Caldwell
Thanks for the photo of their graves. I met Marge at the Salem YWCA in about 1968 when our son was a baby. Marge coordinated the women's volleyball there and she was such fun. I was thinking about her a couple of days ago and searched Find A Grave. I've never forgotten her. Wish I had a photo of here. I'll do some searching:). Thanks again.

Thank you for the grave marker photo. It has answered some questions for my work. Orpha's husband is a granduncle. I will send you meaningful additions for Orpha and Frank Cook through the edit process.
Thank you for your work in FindAGrave. Your purpose statements for this database are right on the money.
I will pass your effort on.
