Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started on FAG with a memorial for my brother. Since then I have enjoyed filling in photos and maiden names and dates and birthplaces wherever I can find these.

I have a special interest in Finns, but I branch out wherever there is a mystery or a hole, or an unrecorded date.

Finnish Flags!
Hi, Bev,
Just noticed you added the Finnish flag. I am going
to do that for my stepfather and his family. Hadn't seen those before

It is not possible to save a photo from the site. I will just delete and you can post a request. I took this photo while traveling. Doubt if I will ever be back in that area.

I would if I could figure out how. The only option I see is to delete it.
I can't recall why I posted it on this memorial; perhaps there was no request for both of them at that time.
I don't save the photos after I post them. Perhaps you can try to save it to your computer and post it on the correct site. If not, perhaps you can get the Tech Asst at Find a Grave to help you.
Sorry about any problems I caused.
Let me know if you want me to delete it if you do not have access to do that.

Kenneth M Goin

I am trying to find more information about a childhood friend of mine and I noticed you had added a picture to his F.A.G page. I am actually trying to reconnect with his sister(s), Sharon Goin or Midge Goin. I had no idea Kenny had passed until finding this. Do you by any chance have any ideas that might help me finding them?

RE: Esther Barker
It just so happens that the guy who started Find A Grave is my uncle, so I enjoy special access to services not available to the public.

Just kidding!

It's pretty easy, really. Since Ancestry bought Find A Grave, they've beefed up member services. My advice is not to bother contacting memorial owners and ask for dupe removals. You never know whether they'll be friendly or hostile, or just ignore your requests.

Write to and give them the deceased's name and include the original memorial number and the newer, duplicate memorial number with a request for deletion. Keep it to those items only; do not try to "make your case" with long arguments. Under Find A Grave rules, the first memorial takes precedence.

Send your Greenwood dupes to In my experience they're quick to respond.

Hope this helps.
