Bio

One of my pastimes is visiting cemeteries and reading the inscriptions. Some of the verses have a real message. I especially enjoy visiting graves of famous or significant people, but even small babies have interesting verses on their markers. I've been recording genealogical information on my family and friends for many years. I've known about Find A Grave for a number of years, and have used it often. I like the way the site is set up, and after years of using Find A Grave, I am now adding information myself. It is a great resource.

A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer. THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grandchildren, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do not ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.

For extended family members you can set up Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send corrections. We will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members.

If a mistake is found, please e-mail me.

If you are requesting the addition of an obituary to a memorial, please provide the source of the article. Proper credit should be given plus the location of the paper is always helpful.
Thank you.

Since the move to Ancestry and the new website, newspaper obituaries, death certificates and other scanned documentation is allowed. We encourage members to move the images down to the bottom of the photo display so that they are not the first thing you see when viewing a memorial page.
Thank you,
Find a Grave Administration

If you decide you just have to post a death certificate, please be sure that the Social Security Number is unreadable. Thank you. If there is a death certificate posted to one of my memorials and you wish to have it removed please understand you must contact the individual that posted it.

From Find A Grave member LKat's profile page I have copied the following statement that I totally agree with. I do add the rank if the individual died while in the service or retired from the service

ADDING THE RANK TO A MEMORIAL
Use of one's former rank by non-retired military personnel is not a prescribed usage by the Department of Defense (DoD). Use of rank is reserved for career 20-year retirees -- with the intention that their use of the rank is for personal social use -- and is not for use subsequent civilian work-related situations.
In a bio or in a resume the service to our nation would be included as part of one's experience -- it's just using the rank as part of one's name the DoD specifically prohibits.
