Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Retired Sailor. I enjoy looking for "Stones" in my quest to find my ancestors and to help others. You have my permission to use any headstone marker photo I have taken so long as it is NOT for a commerical venture.

Transfer Requests:
Generally, I will only transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines. To request a transfer, use the suggest a correction link on the "Edit" tab for the memorial you are requesting. Please include your relation to the person you are requesting.

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.

To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer, adding family links, or other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.

Thanks for checking and posting that photo. You went the extra mile for him. He died during World War II and one would think that the government would pop for a tombstone. Thanks again. Loren

RE: Thank you!
Not a problem. I'm originally from Omaha and still have family there so I know that the rain has been quite an issue this year. I just appreciate you getting it for me.

Thank you!
Mr. Watkins, I wanted to thank you so much for taking the time to get the photo of Edward Mullen's headstone for me. This is an uncle that I never got a chance to know. I appreciate your help and how quickly you got back to me. Have a wonderful evening.

Don, Thank you so much for the wonderful picture of William's headstone. Now we know he was buried in the same plot as his father-in-law. I really appreciate the job you are doing for so many of us. Juanita Chrz

Alvirus E. Snow

I appreciated that you took some time to locate Alvirus's grave. I'm not sure if a headstone is in place so if you choose to go out there again, could you just photograph the site if the stone is absent? The cemetery lists his name as Elviros Snow so his name might read differently on the stone.
