Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do not adhere strictly to the FAQ suggestion (not a directive) that transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations (i.e., siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). I will transfer management of any memorial to any member of the extended family of the person in a memorial upon request with pleasure, provided that such person is equally liberal in granting transfer requests.

Personally, I'd rather have a memorial managed by a member of the extended family who has significant motivation to maximize the content of the memorial due to the family relationship than continue managing it myself. The distance back in time or the degree of relationship to that ancestor is irrelevant to the question of a person's commitment to the memorial.

Please provide your relationship to the person in the memorial when making the request.


This has been said about genealogy and I rather think that it applies with equal force to the volunteer work done here at Find A Grave:

Genealogy begins as an interest,
Becomes a hobby,
Continues as an avocation,
Takes over as an obsession,
And in its last stage,
Is an incurable disease.


If you would like me to take cemetery pictures for you, please include the grave location - one way to learn a grave location is to phone the cemetery; if a cemetery with thousands or even tens of thousands of graves has 20 photo requests and I have only an hour or two to take photographs, I am likely to select first the requests that include the grave location. Also, if you want multiple photographs (e.g., husband and wife), list both/all of them; I feel that I more helpful the more pictures that I take, so I am likely to give priority to a pair of requests.


If you would like to use one of my photos for your own personal purposes (e.g., to post on a profile on your family tree at, feel free to do so, but please provide attribution (along the lines of "Originally contributed to the memorial for [name of person] on Find A Grave by Charlie Morgan").


A note about the Transcriptions Field - it's very time consuming to complete. I concur completely with the following comment made by Stauffacher56 in a thread in one of the Forums here: "I think the transcription is about the marker and should include everything it says. If I omit something (usually due to readability issues, sometimes because living persons are mentioned) I'll mention the nature of the omission in the note field. Things like names and dates could be presented differently on the marker vs. the fields on the top of the page. Photos aren't viewable by everyone, sometimes they're not very clear, and sometimes there isn't a photo at all. The transcription fills those gaps."

By making a complete transcription of the inscription, we do a big favor to folks without eyesight who depend on electronic readers to speak the words of a website to them. Those readers cannot read photographs.

Thank you. Do you know if the cemetery would have more information about them?

Durants of Newton, MA

I noticed that you have memorials for Thomas and Nabby Starr Durant in Newton, Massachusetts. Do you have information on all of their children? I am doing research on a different Durant/Durrant family and I'm trying to find out if this Newton Durant family is related.

RE: Henry E. Hungerford
Thank you for accepting my submission of Frances M. Gill as the first of two marital partners of Henry Hungerford. I am a descendant of the Gill family of Springfield Vermont. I had been looking for Frances May Gill for awhile. Frances Is an indirect relation, a cousin of my "fourth grade" grandfather. I have not yet submitted an edit request to link Frances to her parents.

No, I am a descendant of the Gill family of Springfield Vermont. I had been looking for Frances May Gill, his wife, for awhile. I have not yet submitted an edit request to link Frances to her parents.

RE: Lily Abercrombie
Charlie, as you are family, would you like to take these memorials under your care? I am only a contributor. BJ

Lily Abercrombie
Charlie, thanks for the updates and photos for both. Always a goal to leave breadcrumbs for family or researchers to find and add on valuable info. Having photos makes me believe you are family?
