Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to be as accurate as possible with my submissions. If you find any errors contact me. use the "Edit" tab at the memorial and then "Suggest a correction" to send me any updated information or corrections.

IMPORTANT: make sure you include an email address or have the ability to be contacted when sending corrections. Sometimes I have been sent a correction that has a typo or error and I may need to contact you to verify the information

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives, This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren only!
Any non-direct relatives ,(aunts, uncles, cousins), 2nd great grandparents & beyond are not required to be transferred.

Explain your relationship in the request!

I receive hundreds of edits a week and generally except. If something is incorrect with relationships just send me a message and I will remove.

Thank you
#76294445 & 60241420 are my ancestors. I am most grateful for you taking the time to not only bless me with these photographs, but all of us descendants. May God bless you for your labors on our behalf.

I shall be adding all of their children and parents as Find-a-graves gives us the numbers. This site is a gift to all genealogists, in my humble opinion. This way others can learn what America is really all about, each of us helping others who can not help themselves.

As a person who is homebound, you have allowed me to visit my deceased relatives. I thank you and all those who do this work.

Hi John-

Thank you so much for getting photos and adding them to family memorials. It is wonderful to see the headstones!

May I please use your images for James Brainerd (Find A Grave Memorial# 35633967) and his wife Anner Risley Brainerd on my Ancestry tree and family history blog, I will be happy to give you attribution as well as Find A Grave.

Hello John-

Thanks so much for creating Eli Bigelow's memorial and linking him to his family. Eli was my 5th g-grandfather, so I especially appreciate your dedication in helping to ensure those who are gone are remembered.

All the best,

Memorial# 7930907
My name is Kate and I have been putting together a genealogy for my motherís ancestors. I have interspersed various photographs within the text to accent interesting facts about some ancestors. I plan to publish and print hard copy books for my immediate family and their children. I have included the following photo, Thomas Stanton Memorial# 7930907, that you posted and I donít want to use it in my book without your explicit permission. I will include your credit with the photograph and Find A Grave in the citations.

Last week a friend of mine who works in the printing industry approached me with an offer to print and bind my book at no charge if I allow the printer to use the content in a sample print run of approximately 100 books. They would not be sold but instead would be distributed to demonstrate digital ink jet technology. I would like to accept this offer, however, I cannot do so without gaining your permission to use your posted photograph.

Would you please grant me permission to use your posted photograph, listed above, in my book.

Thank you for your consideration, please respond at your earliest opportunity.
