I have no problem transferring memorials. However, if they are a part of my family, I will follow Find A Grave guidelines. Although I disagree with how stingy some people are, I also understand that a lot of time is put into creating memorials. My biggest pet peeves here are those who create duplicates without checking first, those who create memorials for living people so they have "first shot" at the memorial when the person does pass away, "Number Chasers" are the worst, and those that refuse to update memorials when someone sends them updates through the edit button. The whole point of this site is to create memorials for those that have passed away. MANY genealogists use this site to trace their trees. Why is it so hard to update when the chance is presented to you?

RE: Numerous Hintons I am unable to find my copy of Elisha's birth certificate. However, I have a cousin who has a copy, and he is sending it to me. As soon as I receive it, I will provide you with the evidence.
David and Anna are from my wife's family. If you want to transfer them to me that is fine. My only reservation is that I am well up in years and so don't know how long I will be able to handle these entries.
RE: Youngren The Youngren/Younggreens - all immigrants from Sweden - consists of a pretty large number originating from 9 brothers and decendants of those. I am not related by blood to Charles & Amanda, but to a wife of Gustaf Y 1836-1922 whos younger brother Carl Peter b1839 was the father of Charles. Many of the siblings arrived to/lived in Patton, Ford Co. Along with the work with my own tree I also try to add information to the memorials found, so thats reason for my edits to your memorials. I might get back for additional info later. Also it's something strange with the upper names on the stone on that grave - The names fit a bit but the YOB does not at all fit their parents who I guessed were buried in same grave ... I'll see if I can solve it .. /Sinc Olle K, Karlstad Sweden
