Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Winslow, Arizona and spent many years in Texas. I now live in Salt Lake City and am retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and Delta Air Lines. Once I found out how many of my relatives had memorials on Find A Grave and how many more needed to be created, I was hooked.

Iím currently creating memorials from African American death certificates in Texas. Just finished Wharton County and now working on Fayette County. I believe in adding as much info to a memorial as possible through the death certificate and I realize death certificates aren't perfect but they're still better than having no information at all. This includes all birth and death info and connecting them to their parents if possible. The more you add, the easier it will be for future generations to find their ancestors. I always check to make sure Iím not creating a duplicate so, if you see one that Iíve overlooked, donít hesitate to let me know so I can delete mine.

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

If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please use the link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

Re: Kent graves
Hi Tim,

My wife is related to Odis. If you'd transfer his memorial to me I'd be happy to add to it and manage it. I do all the genealogy in my family.

Thank you for contacting the other person about the memorials for Amos and Lorinda. I appreciate you making the memorials in the first place as it's how I found the memorial for Odis.

Kent graves
Hi Tim,

I found your memorials you created for Amos Henry Kent [#130179716] and Lorinda Alice (Kuffel) Kent [#130179732].

They are buried at Live Oak Memorial Park, Monrovia
Los Angeles County, California. Someone has already created memorials for them there [#158226088] and [#158226112]

Should those memorials be combined? Your memorials have all the vital dates (very helpful to me) and a connection to one of their son's memorials. Their memorials are connected to the burial location. What do you think?

RE: Glenda Shields
Tim Allen,
Thank you for your email response.

You have done well to locate date of death and name at death for Glenda Shields.

I would like to recommend a memorial procedure that works well for such a situation.
1. Open memorial in category of "Family & Friends"
2. Choose cremation
3. Choose "burial other"
4. Under Additional Information choose "Recent death location of body unknown"

These steps allow you to open memorial for Glenda, link her to both parents and siblings and state that the status of her burial is unknown at this hour, and lets the world know that Glenda (Shields) Sullivan did live among us until 24
September 1991.

Tim, I see that these memorials were not contributed my you. So, please disregard my offer about the biography notes. Thanks again for bringing the duplication to my attention.

Warmest genealogy regards,
