Bio and Links
Bio Photo I inherited the genealogy bug from my mother. I ran across F.A.G. while trying to find information on ancestors. I believe F.A.G. is a wonderful site to find missing family links.

When photographing, I go row-by-row. I am not a greedy request-claimer who will go out, take a single pic, and run back to post it. From a genealogy perspective, I want to know if there are other family members in the cemetery that I may not already know of. Also, if someone has previously posted a pic of the headstone and I get a better one (I am using a HD camera), I will add mine as well.

If you would like me to transfer management of a memorial, please send me the request, and your relationship to that person. I try to transfer to family members if possible!

***** If you send me a message stating "this memorial is a dupe, please delete," please make sure the other memorial has at least as much information and pics as the one in my control. Otherwise it will remain as-is!!!

****If you would like me to add an obituary to a person, you MUST provide me with citation information!!!!!!!!

Sophia & William Newton
RE: Memorial 114601411


I just noticed on Sophia & William's grave markers that the death date is the same for both of them. If you are a family member, do you have any information on how they died on the same day?

McDermott grave
When I was in 1st grade at Westward, I had a teacher by that name. Do you have anyway of finding out anything about the person buried there? It's a stone like I've never seen before. If I had the lot number, etc. a cemetery worker could look it up in their records.
Just an idea, Patsy

Susan L. Evans
You posted a picture of a grave in in Fairbury Cemetery of a Susan L. Evans. I believe that you might have read the gravestone incorrectly. Could this be Susan T. Evans? I am tracing my family and a family member Susan T. married Isaac B. Evans and moved to Nebraska. If you look closely the gravestone may be a T followed by a period.

Find a Grave photos
I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?

Jefferson Co photo Elbert Mason
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. Elbert Mason is one such soldier. I am asking you if I may use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial, to post on the Vt. C.W. site? (

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Transfer Request
Hi Melissa,
I noticed that you are currently managing my great great grandmother's memorial: Martha Ann Nelson #59529212.
I have quite a bit of information I would like to add. Could you please transfer her memorial to me?

Justice's in Fairbury, KS
Hi Melissa,

Going through all the old things on my email I came across a notation on Frank and FLorence Justice buried in the Fairbury, KS Cemetery.
The information on Florence's memorial , ie siblings, should be on Frank's memorial page! I can only correct so much as a contributor but would appreciate it if you could correct the information or I would happy to have both memorials transferred to me

Thanks SO Much
