Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing this research on the cemeteries from the area where I was raised, but once addicted, I go on and on. The memories of those from home are wonderful. I've even been able to go back in my photo albums and find photos to add to many memorials. I have no specific family I'm looking for, I just want to keep those memories alive.

Most of the contributors on Find A Grave have been wonderful to work with. Only a few haven't been willing to make additions, links or add bio's. I try really hard to include a bio with as many memorials as possible. Many old obits, I pull out of my scrap books. I feel the obits/bio's gives life to the person that we've lost, as well as gives us names to search for links. Sometimes I make mistakes so please do let me know so I can correct them.

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

John Heffner
Shirley, I am following up on our sac messages for John Heffner.
Again I remind you your memorial for John was NOT in this cemetery, at the time I created my memorial for him. And again here are the F.A.G. guidelines for these types of dupes:


How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
... In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. ...

You must delete a memorial you created with an incorrect burial location, no matter the date of creation, if another memorial with a correct actual burial location is found.


Thank you.

RE: Eloise Whiting Deremo Duplicate
I am not hounding I always send one notice to email & one to public message.
Why would you send it in for Find a Grave to do when you can easily take care of it all yourself you don't send it in to Find a Grave Administration to do the work for you they have enough to do. You simply use the edit tab to send info from your memorial to the other and for bio info/obituary to be added you send it to other contributor through the "Suggest any other correction or additions" and ask them to add it. If there is a photo you add it yourself to other memorial and if someone else added it then you contact them and have them add it. Then you click on "delete" to remove your memorial.
If a dupe has not been removed within 30 days of notice that is when you send it in to be merged by Administration.
We are supposed to send dupe notice so I did not do anything wrong. Please lets just get along. Thank you for all that you've contributed to the memorials for the deceased and the family searchers.

Lester F. Conrad
Hi Shirley,
Lester is buried in Cortez Cemetery. Your entry is unknown burial #65527133 created in 2011. There is now an entry # 98970205, with burial and photos created in 2012 by Doris Jaques Bair. The two of you might want to combine what you have and delete one of them. Doris will probably work with you on it, she is a nice lady.
Have a good week ahead...........

I do not add published obituaries to memorials due to copyright laws.

Hi Shirley, I added the headstone picture from Misty to your memorial for Rick, he was a good friend to me and I miss him. Dont forget to change it to the Cahone cemetery. :) Have a nice day, Johnny

Hi Shirley, as I explained on April 29, I do not currently own a working laptop and am finding that copying and pasting on my phone is difficult. However, I did consider you and did that for Tommy Lopez.

If you can send obituaries to the Find A Grave directors, perhaps you could just send them to me in the Edit section.

RE: Bob Montgomery
I am kind of related to Gladys, she is the oldest daughter. She is my sisters mother in law and she has asked me to help her with her family. She has a pedigree chart with her grandparents on it and that is where I got the information. Thanks for adding it.
