Bio and Links
Bio Photo A new "Automated" system for "Suggest A Correction/Submit an Edit" process was deployed by FindAGrave on December 5, 2013.

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You will now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

A much easier way for doing updates to names / Links/ dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

For almost thirty years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

I will no longer respond to transfer or up-date requests that are sent to me on the Message Board. Requests sent this way many times have errors and often slow things down.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Please do not post actual death certificates on my memorials. Instead, send the information shown on the certificate, & I will add it to the memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

findagrave Mary Masters
Thank you so much for your contributions on the Masters family. You are a person after my own heart. You do a thorough job with quality photos and histories. I know you will take very good care of our mutual relative, Mary Jane Sizemore Masters. Therefore, I have had the memorial transferred to your care, (You also said you would keep the info I added) which pleases me. I am interested in sharing and keeping histories and pics for those interested and your love and time is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

As I was taking the photo of Frank and Clara's stones, I noticed one for a Reuben Shell. He is not mentioned on Frank's memorial so I was wondering who he was. I took a photo of his stone and will add it to his memorial if you create one. His dates are; b.1890 d.1923

Thanks, Virginia.
You have fixed almost all of them.
You still have two memorials for Martha Shackelford Shryock

45134293 complete with photo of tombstone

45134544 can be deleted since it is only the birth and death dates.
