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: Stoddard family
Thank you very much Jim for the Stoddard transfers. My neighbor Katherine had them for her inlaws, so now I will take my laptop over to her and get some bio for their pages. Much appreciation!

I have done all the linkages. Thanks for catching this. I keep finding people that I haven't done this with and don't know why I didn't do that when I put the memorial on. Some day I will get them all. Thanks again.

Ferris family
I am the granddaughter of Maude Ferris Brainerd, whose father was Charles Henry Ferris (b1865 & died in the mid 1940's in California. My records show that his parents were Lawson S. Ferris and Margaret Liscomb (could be Luscomb). I think Charles is probably a brother to John H. Ferris (22947586). My family was from Michigan. I am now in North Carolina. I can't find any burial information on Charles or his wife Lucy Viola Button Ferris (Maude's parents). She also had a brother Lawson H. Ferris and Amos James Ferris. Can you tell me how I might be able to see if John and Charles were brothers? Any information would be appreciated.

Normally I would ask the newest memorial to be removed, but the newer one has a picture of the headstone and yours does not. I just thought it would be nicer to keep the one with the picture, but I certainly understand how you must feel if this is a family member. I wouldn't remove my family member memorial either, regardless of the issue. Duplicates are fine with me.
