I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

RE: Harriett Suydam

thank you for the offer to transfer. I am happy to take this memorial if you wish, though I ran across her information through a relative, and am not actually related myself.

Henry Eugene Barney
Jim could you transfer Henry (35592786)to me (47351421). I must admit that Henry is a relative by marriage and I also created a memorial for him not knowing yours existed. To the extent that my memorial has a picture and more info on it I was going to delete yours. If you could possible transfer it or delete it I would appreciate it. Thanks Russ

RE: Frank Torrance
The relation is on my ex-wife's side. I only track her side for my son's benefit... Thanks anyway though. :)
