Bio

I started researching my family history in my late teens or early twenties. Something would always call me away from it and then something, usually a death in the family, would always call me back. Well there isn't anything to call me away anymore, so now I've made my account and am working on using it to create and update memorials. I am concentrating on my family currently, as I am working on my family tree. I have actually used Find a Grave for years to look up memorials, but I just never thought of making an account and creating, maintaining, or assisting with memorials myself. However, this site works greatly on the assistance of others, so I am very interested in helping where I can.

If you find any errors in my memorials feel free to let me know. I work hard to make sure that the information I fill in is accurate, but I am also human. Lastly, if you find a memorial of a loved one and would like ownership of it, please contact me and I will gladly transfer it over as long as they are of no relation to me. I believe family comes in all shapes and sizes, and I have realized that it can sometimes be difficult to get others to transfer even within guidelines for some reason. I do not own your family and friends memorials, even if I created the memorials. Any memorial I created of someone unrelated to me I created for you, so the information doesn't get lost with time.

Memorial Transfer Guidelines: (there are some who only want to follow the top part)

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.

As a memorial manager you will be expected to:
Respond respectfully to 'edit requests' and other contacts regarding this memorial
Transfer the memorial to any relative if they request it.

Please keep in mind that if you request to manage memorials you are not related to, you are expected to transfer them to any relative. When you have used this tool to request Find a Grave managed memorials, we'd also suggest transferring memorials to local volunteers when requested if you are not local to the area.
