I started looking for my family after stumbling on this site. I was so EXCITED to find MY GGGGG Grands, and the cemeteries have done a great job of preservation. I love photography and wandering through old cemeteries, some of the monuments are awe inspiring. I was also struck and saddened by the crumbling faded stones, especially the ones I remembered playing among during my childhood. It is so sad that someone will look for a relative and not be able to see the stone any longer. Therefor I feel that we all have an obligation to photograph and try to save these memories.
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations.
Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.
Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created.
Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable. This site is primarily for GRAVE photos not genealogy, preserve those memories that are quickly fading.
