My husband and I loved to take driving trips, which usually included finding an old cemetery to walk through.
Now that I'm a widow, "Find A Grave" has renewed my interest in the cemetery records and photographs in our collection. I'm so pleased to use them for the creation of memorials for our relations who don't yet have one.
I live in the home my husband and I designed and built together, "Sattermoor Hall," with my fuzzy sons Matthew (a Pembroke Welsh Corgi) and Nathaniel (a Miniature Longcoat Dachshund) on my family ranch in Grayson County Texas.
MY TRANSFER POLICY: I don't view this as a contest or a turf war. My purpose here is to make use of my family history files and grave marker photograph collection to create memorials for anyone who has not yet been recorded, especially those individuals that I have known personally. Unlike the folks who become possessive of their memorials, it makes no difference to me how many memorials I've created or how many I am managing. It is very important to me, however, to account for every soul that has passed into history.
Therefore, even if your relationship to the person does not fall within the Find A Grave policy of four generations, I will happily transfer any of my memorials so long as the person is more closely related to you than to me. Simply tell me how you're related within your request.
If you have a special reason that does not pertain to family relationship, I will consider those transfers as well with an explanation so long as the reason is not for "collecting."
Since I want my memorials to be accurate and complete, I always welcome edit requests.
RE: Witt Family Dear Elizabeth - Alta Witt March is my 2nd cousin 3x removed. I wondering if you could send me an accurate list of her children.
