RE: Transfer and thanks
Only a genealogist understands! Many thanks.

An example, I aspire to be like...
You set such an awesome example of a Find a Grave contributor who is truly interested & focused more on people, NOT just numbers! Each person we add to the site has a story to tell, and it is our privilege, as well as our responsibility, to make every effort to tell their life story. It's not just entering their dates of birth & death. It's not about controlling a memorial & refusing to transfer, because someone deems a relationship isn't close enough. It's about adding any information that honors & adds to the memory of each deceased soul we memorialize. THANK-YOU for being the kind of genealogist that believes, each soul has a story & actively pursues that goal. Thank-you, for the Memorials you have entrusted to my care. Bless you & your generous caring spirit! Lynn🌺 Parkhurst-Gillies #48687893

Transfer and thanks
James, thanks for transferring Diane’s listing, not sure I will of any help to anyone. But thought I would give you a “heads up” about where I live. One woman has recorded all the cemeteries in Iron County, MI (in the UP) and has information on many of the listings. Like you, if she sees an interesting cemetery, she’ll stop and check it out. They can be in remote areas up here. There’s one in Marble, CO that fascinates me, it is overgrown and neglected, and I wrote to the local historical society and asked if they have any information on the individuals in there, no reply. I put a photo on the site, but could learn no more. It’s up in the mountains near Aspen and Carbondale. Beautiful area.

Again my thanks. Some folks probably thinks you’re crazy getting excited about seeing a cemetery, but another genealogist understands!

Diane Vinehout's entry
James, thank you for putting the information for Diane Vinehout into the Findagrave site. Diane and I corresponded for years as I had ancesters that attended Sacred Heart church. She was kind enough to photograph the stained glass windows that were destroyed in the fire that destroyed the church. I learned of her passing months after the fact, and obtained a copy of her obituary and was glad that someone else had included it on this site. For all of you folks that volunteer to help others, a big thank you. Diane was a big help to me and I in turn tried to help her with the French Canadian connections. JHM

RE: Serbian Cemetery

Thank you for the clarification. Your name under that statement just threw me. I thought I couldn't post their headstones for some reason, religious or otherwise. As long as it's ok, I'll go ahead & post them.

Hello James,

I have a question about my grandfather's posting & his wife (step-grandmother). I'd like to post a picture of their headstones, but I notice a statement followed by your name. The statement reads: "Don't show cemetery photos on this memorial"

Though I am the sponsor, would you please explain. I'm relatively new to this find-a-grave and don't want to break any rules or taboos.

Susan W
William C Kennedy memorial
Hello Gentlemen,

First, thank you both for all your hard work!
I'm sending identical messages to both of you. If you could help to merge the two duplicated memorials, I'd really appreciate it. This is not a relative of mine, so I am not requesting transfer. (If you'd prefer to transfer, however, that is fine with me.) I was doing some research for a friend (Willam's grandson) and we discovered the duplication. Grandson is 100% sure these are duplicates as his parents are in the listed obit and he has visited the cemetery where his grandfather is buried and seen the marker.

Memorial #44468269 (created 2009) for William C Kennedy showing his correct burial location at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is actually the duplicate to #7460511 (created 2003) that shows an unknown burial location but has obituary information.

Following the guidelines, the older memorial should be kept and the newer one deleted, however, if the memorials could be merged without losing the obituary info, that would be lovely.

I'd be happy to help in any way I can. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Thank you! Transfer of Ruth Vogt
Thank you so much for the transfer of Ruth Vogt. This helps me tremendously. I too feel that memorials belong with friends and family, and I am happy that there are others on this site that feel the same way. Deb :)

RE: Re: Thank you
Thanks for the offer James, but I just had a friend do it before you messaged me back. My dad turns 63 tomorrow and I had my friend do two photos (60 years apart [1955-2015]) of my dad at 3 and 63 years old. It looks pretty good. Have a very Merry Christmas!
