Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not add bio. information in the comments of the flower section of the memorials, when you leave a flower on someones memorial it is to honor that person, not to give information to other viewers of the memorial. Out of respect for the families, please DO NOT post images of death certificates in the photo sections of the memorials that I manage. Those that are uploaded will be requested to be removed.

If you have additional information or corrections for any of the memorials please use the SAC tab on their memorial.
I do not contribute to FindaGrave to rack up my memorial numbers to the site. I am a genealogist and I use this for MY genealogical research. I will not post source information on this site. On the subject of transfers, the so many generation relation to the persons memorial is just a FAG "guideline", That means the creator of the memorial can transfer it outside of this "guideline" if he/she WISHES to.
I will not post obituries from suggest a corrections that appear to be copied from newspapers, funeral homes or that contain living persons.

about dups
Please read the FAQs under Actions : Help with Findagrave, about duplicates.
The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

About memorial transfers for "maintenance";
If I should ask you for a memorial that you "Own" for maintenance, and you wish to keep the memorial yourself, simple, all you have to do is tell me to return the memorial to you after the edits, links, ect.(maintenance) is done with the memorial. I prefer to add the genelogical information about the person myself, I have had some bad information posted when I rely on others to do it correctly, just the way I am.

When posting to my profile page about any memorial, please add the number of the memorial you are refering to.

I try to remove messages from my member page after I've read them or resolved some issue.
I do refuse to correspond to rude and/or demanding contributors.

Don, I am pleased to see you use this site for your genealogy research posting. I am linked to the Sharps through the Klapps and Brick Church in Guilford Count, NC. The original transcript of the church was in German and I thought the Sharps were German. Could you please share with my the sources you have that indicate they originally came from Scotland, then through Germany?

I'd be grateful. Thank you.

Are you related to the Bedwells in Bolivar Cemetery? I can take them back through their mother Salina G. Housden Bedwell to England before the Revolutionary War.

If you're related I'd love to share/compare information.

I descend from Samuel BEDWELL through Marium BEDWELL PERRY. You have a great deal of information I do not have. Wonder if you might share your sources with me.

Hello Don,

I am the g-grandson of Sarah Ann Allen Atkins, whose memorial you maintain. Her first husband Jeremiah Carroll was my g-grandfather and her son, Charles Francis Carroll was my grandfather. I just wanted to say "Hi!" and thank you for the very nice job you do with the memorials you maintain.

Rejoice when Find A Grave will not make a memorial "Famous" for you! They will pull out all the human interest and personal qualities of the loved one. Then, they lock up the information that's posted, and Heaven help you if you find more good memories... read those guidelines (FAQ's). You have the better guidelines. Thank you, Don.

I really like your fantastic site!

Della Curl was my mom's aunt. I could be wrong but if this Jessee Roy Bedwell is from of Gilham, Howard County, Arkansas then he is directly tied to my line. I have the marriage license with my mom's aunt and Mr. Bedwell. My mom told me that Jesse Roy Bedwell had an "interesting "personality.
