Request for Transfers !! Use SUGGEST EDIT tab on memorial !! Also for edits.
Find A Grave is the WORST source for family information.
----------------------
I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.
1. I double check all requests.
2. If you request a transfer and you tell me they are your relatives. Then I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!
---------------------------------------------------------
On ancestry.com they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE! The last column says what happen to the body.
http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=3135
The name should be "What happen to those who died at the Wood VA hospital"
