I am interested in locating stories, biographical information, photos and family links for all family memorials. Especially with people with common names, if you wish me to link to relatives, please provide what evidence you have; a false link may prevent connection with true relatives.

If you would like to manage one of the sites, please explain your family connection or other interest. Follow the procedure in Findagrave FAQ:
"contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page." Need to have your Find a Grave contributor # with the request!

"the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."

Hi Jon,
I was just up to Lake View for a picture of this grave and discovered he was moved to Acacia in 1945.

Perhaps you can transfer your memorial to Acacia. The cemetery notes say he is at the Acacia masu.

Birth year is 1891....I think it was a typo since you listed he was 17 at death. Death info is correct. Thanks.

Please process the two Edits you have pending for Ella Smithers. If she is not your relative, I would appreciate you transferring her to my care as she is my husband's cousin. Thank you. Marina Yeager #46871120

Melanie Lynn Banic (Memorial# 91428340)
Hi there,

I'm doing some family research for a dear friend, whose mother you have made a page for here: Memorial# 91428340, Melanie Lynn Banic.

What I'm curious about was who else is by her in Seattle's Mount Pleasant cemetery? Her daughters don't know who their maternal grandparents are. She was murdered by a boyfriend (not either of the daughters' fathers) so it's hard getting information about where Melanie comes from. Just trying any avenue I can. Thank you for your time in making this memorial!

You did not transfer Memorial of Lea Baker to me.
You put my name on it but I am locked out adding information. You said you listed sources but I see no sources.

When you manage a memorial you have the right to decline information someone suggest. I get that too and if it isn't correct information I decline I ask were is their source.

Would you please transfer the Memorial to me?

Dear Jon Ridgeway:

If you could transfer my grandmother's memorial (#65149653) to me, I have written a biography and would like to add some family photos as well.

Thank you very much indeed for your time in adding her memorial here and very best regards to you and your family.
