I am happy to share my photos for your research. Please feel free to copy any of my photos to use for your personal, not for profit use.

I check for memorial updates often. Please verify and double check your info for accuracy. When you submit information or corrections to a memorial, I will list your contributor name and number as the source of the submission. Please do not ask me to add info anonymously. Please utilize the easy-to-use SUGGEST EDITS tab on the memorial page when you want to send an update or correction.

You may submit a biography or obituary by using the SUGGEST OTHER CORRECTIONS tab. Please do not use this tab to submit info that should have been submitted with the easy-to-use SUGGEST EDITS form such as parental or spousal links, locations of birth and death, etc.

If you submit data that differs from what is chiseled into the tombstone (alternate names, spellings and/or dates) I require documentation.

Hyphenated names: If you enter more than one name in the last name field, that name will only come up in a search that exact way. For instance, if the name is entered as Smith-Jones, it will not come up in a search for Jones or Smith. It will only come up in a search for Smith-Jones. For this reason, Find a Grave asks that we not enter hyphenated names. Find a Grave asks us to enter the additional names in the bio field. So, assuming that Jones was the name at the time of death, it should be entered that way. If you submit a correction that has the name hyphenated, I will enter the complete name in the first line of the bio field.

Because I receive so many requests, I may not have time to reply back, but corrections/updates that are submitted properly will be made.

I prefer not to make transfers. In the past, some Find a Grave members have deleted all of their memorials. This removes everything, including family links to and from other member memorials. When entire families are linked on this site, removing even one of those memorials creates a mess that is time consuming to repair.

The best way to save memorials is to enter them into virtual cemeteries that you create. If you need info about virtual cemeteries, check out the TUTORIALS tab.

Findagrave guidelines are that transfer requests should be limited to DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS. This would be YOUR:
- Siblings
- Parents
- Grandparents
- Great-Grandparents
- Children
- Grandchildren
- Great-Grandchildren
Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) will not be transferred so please don't ask. If your request for a memorial transfer is within the above guidelines, please explain your relationship in the request.

Thanks for your understanding.
