Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules. How many of you knows that a contributor does not have to do corrections or transfers. How many of you knows that Find A Grave have a Right to Privacy Act?

All a contributor has to do is to invoke this privacy act and the contributor will no longer receive any corrections or transfers e-mails. Find A Grave DOSE NOT demand corrections or tranfers be done. They ask contributors to consider doing them to improve memorials and provided more information for researchers.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

Duplicate memorials
It has been brought to my attention that I have created duplicate memorials to two that you created. One is 126987888 which is a duplicate to your's which is 106994802. The second is 126987844 which is a duplicate to your's which is 106994696. Geraldine Holland Rode is a relative of mine and I have linked her parents, her husband Bud Rode and her siblings. We either need to add this information to your memorials, transfer yours to me or you could delete yours. Let me know how you want to proceed.

RE: Morgans

I will have to ask my grandfather about Hazel, Ethel, Kirby and Bryan.

My maiden names is Jacobs and I have married into the "Robinson" name, unfortunately I do not know much about my married name. I do know that they hale from the great state of Texas. I noticed you have quite a few Jacobs in your library as well, are you by chance related to any of those?

Thanks again!

Mr. Parker,

Sorry, but I sent the request to the wrong contributor. Sorry about that.

By the way, I have noticed there are quite a few "Morgans" in your library. Are you related to them? Perhaps we are long lost cousins.

Kind regards,
Laura L Robinson

Good afternoon Mr. Parker,

I would like to request a transfer of my great-grandmother, Glenda Voltmer-Morgan, daughter of George Herman & Anna Georgia Voltmer. (Otherwise known to me and my mother as "Granny") She is the mother of my maternal grandfather, Herman Lewis Morgan. Her record number on is 8357906.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Kind regards,
Laura L Robinson

RE: Shumate/Vance Cemeter
My maiden name is Pullins (Ohio). There are Pullins' families living and buried in Champaign County Ohio who are direct descendants of Loftus Pullin.

I looked at your virtual cemeteries and noted your extensive Pullins cemetery.

My double cousin (my father's sister married my mother's brother) researched the Pullin(s) ancestry back in the 70's and 80's and actually visited Highland County many times to gather information. Trying to connect various lines of the family.

Thanks for the information.

Dear Sir,

My father was James Chancellor Pullins, a direct descendant of Loftus Pullin. I was born and raised in Ohio as were my Mother (Candice Irene Tarpenning Pullins) and father. Thanks for all of your work here.

I moved to Virginia in 2006. I am taking photos for FindAGrave in Greene County Virginia.

The Central Virginia Genealogy Association is meeting on November 8th at the LDS Church on Airport Road in Charlottesville, VA, if you are interested.

I have a detailed history of the Pullin(s) family.

Good evening! I just happen to check and found that Find A Grave removed the two duplicate persons buried at the Missouri State Training School for Boys cemetery - Henry Davis and Hersley Easley. Now that the duplicates are gone, can you transfer these two persons to me???
