I enjoy Find A Grave, a place where I may pay a virtual visit to the graves of my loved ones, and friends, many graves I have never seen. I am pleased to be a contributor so I can create memorials for my family as well as for other families. I am always happy to make changes to existing memorials. The reason I have so many more memorials managed than has been added is a cemetery has been transferred to my care. If you are related to any person whose memorial I manage and wish a transfer, in most cases it will be honored, if not my family. Please use the correct edit for suggested changes.
KEEP IN MIND: Some edits sent to me may require sources to consider.
PLEASE NOTE: Grave markers or pictures that I have posted have been added through the courtesy of others. Before copying for any reason, please obtain permission from those who so kindly let me post them. Thanks.
NOTE: FLOWERS AND TOKENS ARE TO SHOW LOVING RESPECT FOR THE DECEASED. DO NOT USE THIS AREA TO POST ANY GENEALOGICAL DATA WHATSOEVER. THERE ARE EDITS ON EACH MEMORIAL FOR THIS PURPOSE.
I try my best not to knowingly create a duplicate memorial, but once in a while it does happen. If I have made a duplicate, please use the edit to let me know for removal.
TRANSFER REQUESTS NOT MADE THROUGH THE PROPER EDIT WITH YOUR ID NUMBER WILL BE IGNORED.
Prefer not to make transfers to contributors who will not transfer or who strictly uphold the relative guidelines. Who better to love and care for a memorial than a family member?
Also, I will not transfer to those who create memorials with only a name (little or no other data at all, no married name for females, and burial unknown), just to be "1st" or just to " add numbers." This is not fair to those who spend hours and hours of precious time doing research in order to create a meaningful memorial. In addition, I will not transfer to anyone who knowingly creates duplicates.
When I add an obituary it is typed as is. If a word or name is misspelled it will be typed as such. If I add a word or two of clarification it will appear in brackets. Otherwise, any additional information will be noted separate from the obituary, as should be
PLEASE-You are welcome to use a part of or all of a bio I place on a memorial. If you do tho, PLEASE give me credit with reference to Find A Grave. THANK YOU. Also KEEP IN MIND IF YOU ARE COPING DATA OF ANY OF MY ANCESTORS, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR UPDATES TO WHAT YOU HAVE COPIED. I do update when necessary.
I HAVE NOTICED ON SEVERAL WEBSITES WHERE FAMILY TREES ARE CREATED USING INFORMATION FROM MY BIOS IN FIND A GRAVE OR REFERENCING THE MEMORIAL ADDRESS, WITHOUT ANY NOTE ACKNOWLEDGING CREDIT. Please PLEASE, CREDIT THIS SOURCE! I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO REMOVE THESE BIOS, BUT WILL IF THIS CONTINUES. Be fair to all and do the right thing.
