Find A Grave is a grave registry, not a genealogy site for recording your personal family history. I am willing to transfer memorials--but not those that I am related to, kin through marriage, or are friends of mine or their relatives. If you would like to have a memorial that I have entered transferred to you, Please Read the Find a Grave Guidelines, first to determine if the memorial is within the guidelines. If the memorial is within the Find a Grave guidelines, please state the exact relationship to the deceased when making a transfer request. I do not make bulk surname transfers. For those who wish to "collect" all of a certain surname, please consider creating a virtual cemetery.

I do make mistakes and I would appreciate being informed so that they can be corrected. If you have additional information that you would like added to a memorials, send it and I will consider it.

Genealogy on burial sites
I understand in a way what your saying about burial sites not being genealogy. But, I find so much info through the use of find a grave info, then anywhere else. Like many, I lost my parents at a young age, Mom when I was in second grade and Dad at 15. Some of the family info from searching dates with names and places, makes a huge difference. A little info can go a long ways. Thank you for giving us names dates you have. Sincerely Virginia

RE: Incorrect Record
Thank you so much for this correction. I have another request for you. My aunt, Helen Virginia Sauvager Thomas is buried at Westhampton Memorial Park in Richmond, VA. She was born in 1921 and died in November, 1995. Her name does appear in your registry for that cemetery. I attended her funeral and also checked with her children, my cousins to make sure I was correct. My aunt's daughter, Donna Thomas Dunaway, is buried near her and does appear in your registry. I would appreciate your looking into this matter for me. I am her only nephew and she was a significant person in my life. Thank you, Ramon Owens

Zink Family
I'm working on the Englewood Cemetery database and website and have several questions on the Zink Family, Theodore Elmer Zink and George Ann Blakemore Zink. I show an infant and an E.F. Zink in lot 229, grave 1 and 3, possibly the same infant? And you have Bessie Bell Zink in Lot 229 but we don't have her in the database. The only headstone is one that says "Zink" in grave 1. And Georgie is at Oak Grove Cemetery instead of being buried with her children at Englewood? Our map shows grave 1-5 all being owned by T.E. Zink but no one in graves 2, 4 and 5. It appears that Georgie, Bessie and the infant all died on June 9, 1886 in Jackson County? Was there an accident? On Rootsweb I found a listing for "Daughter Zink" of Theodore and Georgie who married an Andrew Currie but the other two children I see were boys, William and Jess? Bessie's birth certificate says she was the fourth child. Maybe there was another sister? Any help you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated!
