Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner


Thank you in advance for the many updates and links that I receive almost daily for my memorials. I strive to keep up with them.

Before accepting information in edits now, there is a great effort made to confirm the information you send. One edit sent to me, may take 4 to 6 hours of my time searching on ancestry and other genealogy sites to complete. I gather the records for said edit, gain knowledge of the family, contact other contributors to link family members that I am able to find, so that the entire family can be linked on any given memorial.

Please make sure your information is accurate, so that I can accept it. There are a lot of people being linked to those they do not belong to due to so many "same names". It is an easy mistake, I know, as it has happened to me in the past. When possible, follow your loved one from birth to death, check your dates and locations lived to make sure it is the correct memorial.

Know that I appreciate your time and effort. Please, be respectful of my time and effort. If I have made an error, sign in to Find A Grave, and send me an edit. If you have documentation of your information, include that as well.

I would also like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"

Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES***
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list the memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that "no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten." Phyllis Behrendt 2008

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

Request for Permission
I am the author of a website dedicated to the memory of the 16th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Civil War regiment. You have posted a photo of the gravesite of one of the 16th OVI's soldiers, Seth Dorsey, Memorial# 51359059. I am asking your permission to present that photo on my website in the Laid To Rest section. My website is 100% non-commercial and for the research and enjoyment of those interested in the 16th Ohio or Civil War in general. Please let me know if it is ok to use the photo. Also, thank you for your work in documenting and posting the gravesites of our ancestors!

Thank you so much for performing the edits I sent for your Memorial for Walther. I appreciate your taking the time to add the information, especially if you went to the time to verify everything. If I had known you did such things, I would have sent you the documentation and saved you the time.
Your profile page is lovely, especially your Fredrick Beekner quote at the top. By your profile photo you look to be a young person and it's refreshing to see someone so young take an interest in genealogy. I wish you much luck and success in finding more of your family.

RE:Richard Rollins

I am Richard Rollins' sister and I would like to respectfully request that you transfer this memorial to me to maintain. You have several incorrect pieces of information on this page, although since the obituary and indeed, the death certificate, have those same errors, it is not your fault. (His children did not possess the facts, and did not contact me to share them) I can provide documentation if you would like, but my family (nor even Rich as an adult) NEVER lived in, much less was not born in, Valencia or anywhere else in Los Angeles county. You also do not have our mother's correct legal name on your page. Since I am a direct relative, would you mind considering deleting your memorial and leaving mine, which does have the right info?

Thanks for considering this. I appreciate it!
