I have been visiting cemeteries since I was a young child and have had a major interest in my own families ancestry since I was 15 years old. I found this site by accident in June 2006 and am now trying to get my family branches filled in a bit better.
I have been asked many times why I volunteer on FindAGrave, the best answer is - I look at the stones, all of them are for folks who were human beings and some family. I feel a closeness to them. Someone once told me, 'Family are the people who know your story.' I want to know their stories. I do this as gift. There's no greater gift than doing something for people who can't do it any longer. Coming to a grave is one of the highest honors for someone who has passed. And it's something where you can never be thanked.
For transfers: use the EDIT tab on memorial, then "Suggest other correction", ask for a transfer (your relationship would be nice). If not my family or special to me, I'm happy to transfer.
I appreciate additional information or corrections on the memorials that I manage. I try to verify that it is correct before I honor a request. I may ask for sources if I cannot verify, if so, please don't be offended. My goal is to be as accurate as possible.
I have no known family buried in Clark County, Nevada.
I now live in the State of New Hampshire and miss my Son and Husband dearly.
Happy Ancestor Hunting everyone.
