I will transfer memorials to those that are direct descendants. |
My photos are available for your personal use such as adding to your Ancestry tree. I feel that anyone can visit a cemetery and take a photo and therefore it is not important to me to "claim a right" to a cemetery photo I have taken, especially if it is YOUR family member and not mine!
Here is a little something that another fellow Find-a-Grave member, Jeff Gonyea, put on his profile:
"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed. They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most.
The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor."
This is very much the truth! I spend hours upon hours walking through cemeteries taking photos, looking up obituary info online and creating memorials for people I do not know, but have departed this life, so that others can find them and remember them for future generations.

Thank You for creating and transferring my Great Grandmother's Memorial. I do believe that my Great Grandfather is buried in the same location.

Hello, I am a great granddaughter of Alley Amanda Wood Wheeling and Pemberton Wheeling. I am researching my ancestry through websites such as Find A Grave and Ancestry.com. So far I haven't been able to find much information on Mandy's parents, Poney and Isabelle. Do you have any more information on them other than what you have listed on Mandy's memorial?
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for creating and transferring the memorials for my two great aunts, I'll make sure they are updated with detailed family information.

I wish to request this memorial to be transferred to me. A.E. Koehler is the brother of my great grandfather who shares his headstone.
I have more information and photos to add.
Thank you so much!

I have a lot of obits I need but there is a Stanley Leda who died Dec. 19 1927 and a Appolonia Leda Lodyga died Dec. 24, 1959. I have many more but I think these might be related to Martin Leda
