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.

Thank you!
Hi Mr. Ferris, and thank you for the transfer of Sophia Peck Clark (Find A Grave Memorial# 20870012). I'll work to keep it updated as well as you did! Thanks too for all the work you've done for Find A Grave. Angie

RE: C Basey
Hello - This is part of the family tree I've been trying to sort out this week. Hard when the surname spelling varies so much, which is why I stick to the original and make notations where it has been changed. Tombstones are the best knowledge of the people at the time, so names and dates aren't necessary accurate. I'd gladly take care of any memorials you might like to transfer. Many thanks for your work on Find A Grave! ~ Nancy (#46638792)
