Bio

I love genealogy and have been researching my family for over 15 years. I found Find-A-Grave to be very helpful in this process. I joined Find-A-Grave five and a half years ago. I am excited about creating memorials for decedent's. It is my hope their family members and others will find it meaningful and valuable as they view it.

Some of my family surnames: Boitnott, Jamison, Blankenship, Enfield, Swaney, Blair, McDermott, King, and Thornton.

Please remember when requesting a memorial transfer to follow the steps below. Thank you!

********************************************
PER Find-A-Grave

How can I request to manage a relative's memorial?

Memorials are transferred for relatives with these close relationships: child, spouse/partner, sibling, parent, grandchild, great-grandchild, grandparent, great-grandparent, niece/nephew, great-niece/nephew, aunt/uncle, great-aunt/uncle, or first cousin. This would include adoptive, step and in-law versions of these relationships. If two members are related within these guidelines and both would like to manage the memorial, the member with the closer relationship should be given management. **However, I am very lenient with transfers. If I am not related to the person and you are, they belong with you not me!

***ALWAYS explain YOUR RELATIONSHIP in the request! Keep in mind that the memorial manager may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. You may also want to include your specific interest in the memorial.

***To request a transfer on the memorial in question, click on 'Suggest other Corrections' under the 'Suggest Edits' button and type your message to the memorial manager. Be sure to include YOUR RELATIONSHIP to the person and any other reason for the transfer request. This message will be sent to the member, even if there is not an email address listed on their profile.

Need more help? If the memorial in question is a relative to you (within our transfer guidelines) and the memorial manager is NOT family, then they MUST TRANSFER THE MEMORIAL. ****If they refuse to transfer the memorial or do not respond within a reasonable amount of time, contact [email protected] and they will work on it for you.

Please show sensitivity to immediate and extended family members and their requests.

Please note: Please remember I manage these memorials, that does NOT necessarily mean I CREATED them. If you find an error, please send me a detailed message and I would be happy to correct it. In some cases, I may need additional information or documentation.

If you are sending a change, please USE THE SUGGEST EDITS button. It makes the change so much easier for everyone!

Thank you and God Bless

THE STORY TELLERS
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe.
