Find a Grave ID


I've used this website for several years for research but only recently have started managing memorials and trying to fill photo requests. In my genealogy research, I've found so many graves, and even entire cemeteries, that seem forgotten. I just want to help preserve the memories of those who came before us.

I'm happy to transfer a memorial for someone not related to me to a proven family member of the memorialized person, according to the guidelines of this site. Please help me determine that you're family by providing me a paper trail of some sort just so I can verify.

I also welcome documented corrections. I'm in the process of reviewing many memorials that have recently transferred to me after their manager passed away, so I'm happy for the help in making corrections. It helps to make this a better resource for everyone. If you have a correction to suggest, please use the site option.

I attempt to verify ALL suggested edits. This takes time. Providing me with documentation for a suggested edit will speed along the process and is greatly appreciated.

DO NOT leave corrections in the comments with flowers posted on a memorial. I've recently found some of those that go back for years and apparently were not noticed by prior creators/managers of the memorials.

My short surname list is Owens, Breeding, McFarlane, Jackson, Elswick, Smith, Powers, Presley, Stinson, Wilson, Stiltner - all in Appalachian areas of Virginia and Kentucky for the most part.

In addition to my family memorials and memorials from the areas where they lived, I also manage memorials in Yancey and Mitchell counties in North Carolina which is where I live.
