I spent many years in Winslow, Arizona, Dallas and Houston, Texas. I now live in Salt Lake City and am retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and Delta Air Lines. Once I found out how many of my relatives had memorials on Find A Grave and how many more needed to be created, I was hooked.

I’m currently creating memorials from African American death certificates in Texas. I've finished Wharton County, Fayette County and Colorado County. I'm now working on Austin County. I believe in adding as much info to a memorial as possible through the death certificate and Ancestry.com. This includes all birth and death info and connecting them to their parents, if possible. I realize death certificates aren't perfect but they're still better than having no information at all. The more you add, the easier it will be for future generations to find their ancestors. I always check to make sure I’m not creating a duplicate so, if you see one that I’ve overlooked, don’t hesitate to let me know so I can delete mine.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please use the link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial.
