Find a Grave ID


Living in Southwest Virginia after retiring as a Critical Care nurse. Always loved genealogy and now incorporating it with history and involved with Find A Grave.

I follow Find A Grave guideline and if you want me to transfer a memorial to you, it should be a DIRECT relative within four generations. ( FAG says: This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.) Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management.

Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. FAG's goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Please contact me if you would like something added that you can't add. I believe flowers should be for someone you know not to decorate a page.

Feel free to use any of my photos , please give me the credit. I am dedicated to preserving our passed loved ones and linking families

I visit cemeteries, photograph the gravestones, then add the tribute to that cemetery. If the gravestone is absent from a previous tribute, I add it. I search for obituaries, death certificates and information that I can add to give the tribute more data. Lengthy but I love doing it and linking families. Please make request of changes that are document-able, quickly. I use the last residence for the death not the 10 minute visit to a hospitable and I do not add rows and blocks for a tribute because I can't crosscheck it. If someone wants to find that tribute in the Wise County area, the cemeteries are easy to visit.

May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. Please select the option for "Other" in the "Type of photo:" to be added, as it is not a Grave, Person or Family photograph. NOTE: Death certificates do not necessarily contain completely accurate information about the deceased. There are often errors regarding the final burial location (as well as other data).

Feel free to post the death certificates on any of mine but according to FAG regs, cut off all the excess. These certificates let us know the dates and families even if we can't find them right away.
