Phil was born in San Joaquin Co., Calif 1945. Retired but not tired. 6+ years in the US Navy. I have lived in New York, Washington DC, the New England states, Illinois and now back to Calif. I spend a lot of time doing family history. Prout, Breech, Cole, Hutson, Price, Ramsey, Higgins, Flick, Hopkins (Original Mayflower Passenger), Snow, Haughton,, Harrison (like Pres. Harrison), Wallace, Allgood, Kidwell, Callahan, Scott, Wallander, Hawkins - We have a BIG family - back over 25 generations (two Kings of England the War of the Roses) and still researching and counting.
ALL THIS AND IT'S STILL COST ME $4.00 FOR A GOOD CUP OF JOE!

If I have added a memorial that is a family member of your I will transfer them to you. "YOU SEE, FAMILY SHOULD BE WITH FAMILY."
We have no desire to be the highest submitter, but to hopefully assist in filling in the gaps that may someday be priceless to others. We have spent many hours get photos & documenting memorials and the best reward we get is when a family member finds them and We can transfer.
We try not to add a name until I have a plot & photo of the grave.
I said to hell with the Find-A-Grave guidelines, it they are a love one or a Friend and not my family then I will transfer the memorial...
Consider this our written permission to use our copyrighted photos provided it's not for profit and it falls within the following guidelines: To add one of our photos to a Find a Grave memorial, allow us to do it by sending us both of the memorial #'s (the # of the one that has the photo and the # of the one you'd like it placed on). For use on non-Find a Grave websites, publications, etc... give credit to us and to the Find a Grave website by citing it or by providing a link to our Find a Grave profile.
Please TRY to check thoroughly for records before entering duplicate records!
If you're going to leave FindAGrave, PLEASE don't abandon your records. Turn them over to someone else on here so they can be updated and maintained. Thank you!
Please TRY TO BE thorough. If you want to add an obituary, please E-mail me the OB so it can be digitizes and post the full dates and locations, plot locations, etc., if known, to the proper fields and link to their family members WHEN YOU CAN.
Please TRY TO credit the newspaper you are getting the obituary from.
USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, general inquiries ANY memorial. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.
From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.
