I add memorials as I have time when I see obits in my local papers. I don't usually have additional information on these people. I also add obits that I assemble from my research into my family lines. I DO NOT ADD OBITS that are copyrighted to a newspaper or website unless you include permission from the publisher. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO VIOLATE FIND A GRAVE RULES OR COPYRIGHT LAW!
ALSO, PLEASE DO NOT POST PHOTOS THAT YOU DO NOT PERSONALLY OWN THE COPYRIGHT TO! This includes photos from newspapers, yearbooks, etc., as well as those taken by professional photographers.
Your cooperation is appreciated.

I do check each name before I add it, so ideally there would be no duplicates, however, mistakes happen. There are often alternate spellings of a name, or tombstone dates are wrong and my search does not find a previous entry. If you find a duplicate please message me and if you have the earlier entry, we will work together to get the information consolidated!

One of the reasons I do this is to help ensure those who have gone before us are remembered and, if possible, 'reunited' with family. If you find a relative or close friend among my burials, I encourage you to request a transfer. If the memorial is for a member of my family tree, I would love to exchange information with you, and we can discuss a transfer. You can leave me a public message or use my email.

I welcome corrections and additions, but would appreciate if you would leave a message giving your source, particularly if it conflicts with my information. I do NOT add obituaries unless they are out of copyright. I also try to avoid including names of the living. If you are friend or family of the deceased and wish to have this information added, please ask for a transfer. (But be aware that obituaries are considered copyrighted information and are not to be added under Find A Grave rules.) THANKS!

My family tree surnames include
