Bio Photo MISSION: I believe Find A Grave's mission first and foremost is to document cemeteries; to accurately record graves, not to build one's family tree.

Find A Grave FAQs says: Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials [may] contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

TRANSFERS (PLEASE READ): Per Find A Grave FAQs, Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

I will consider making out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the one you want transferred to you. I need specifics not vague statements such as this is my family member, my relative or they are in my family tree. IF YOU AREN'T SPECIFIC, I WILL IGNORE/DELETE YOUR REQUEST. Please be considerate when asking.

This is guidelines set forth by Find A Grave. If you don't agree with them, please take it up with Find A Grave.

RE: Winifred Grace Mellum
My source came from a family member. I did locate her obituary and will send it to her memorial page.
Maybe just Dane County would be sufficient, because I can not confirm Oregon.
Regards, Bruce

RE: William Brady
Thank you so much Kathy for transfering my grandfather's memorial to me.
He is an interesting part of my family. His mother and father also have complicated family situations. I think the work you have done in documenting so many graves is amazing. Kay

Tony was my great grandfather. Would it be possible to have this memorial transferred to me?


Thank you,

RE: Elmer Clarence Anderson Edit
Hi Kathy,

According to Elmer's oldest son's records, the family's historian, "Elmer Anderson was killed in a car accident in rural Columbia County, after having a heart attack. He is buried in Dekorra Cemetery because the rest of his family is buried there. He lived in Rio at the time of his death."

Elmer was pronounced dead at the hospital, in Portage, which is why the WI Death Index listed his place of death as Portage.

Nice catch, thanks! Sorry for the confusion!

Louis Leo Francois
Hello and thank you for all your work!

I wanted to briefly explain an edit that I just submitted for memorial 160495099, Louis Leo Francis. You have listed his step-mother Winnie Mae Gleason Francois. His mother, Mary Phillips Francois, died in 1892 and is memorial 177427753.

Thank you kindly
