My special interest is in documenting monuments that are in danger of deteriorating. Not to mention any family I can find.

This is my chance to Pay it Forward for the kindness that has been extended to my husbands family. While I joined Find A Grave years prior, I didn't actively pursue documenting memorials until recently. While doing genealogical research on my husband's family, I happened upon an entry for a "missing" grand uncle on Find-A-Grave. This opened up a whole chapter on finding out what happened to him, and we are grateful for it.

I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they turn out to be relatives with regards to myself or my husband - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one).

If there are differences in record keeping at the cemetery office I may ask to retain management.

I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.

Please let me know if you find any errors or if I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read. Keep in mind that I am also working from cemetery records which may have misspellings and other inaccuracies.

Feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogical project. But, please do not use my photos to create duplicate memorials on Find-A-Grave.

My photos are of public places, and of no artistic merit. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.
