I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

Thank you to the Find-A-Grave folks who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.


Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

John Carl Wise Memorial# 108770671
Was wondering if you would consider transferring this memorial to me as he was the husband of a cousin and I have information I would like to add to this memorial which would be a big help to many who would be researching John and his wife Ethel.
Thank you Phyllis Goebel Tuning.

Baiones at Holy Sepulchre
There were three Baione graves near Anthony's. Domenica and Angelo and Marie. You can check their memorials to see them.

I assumed they were all part of the same family so I posted a photo on their memorials that shows all three. If they are not of the same family, let me know and I will remove it.

I also posted photos of the other graves on their memorials.

John C Wise #108770671
Hi Jen...I am researching this man and his family. He was married to Ethel McClure, this John C Wise was never married Cora. In the 1930 census he is living in Charleston, West Virginia with Ethel. There is another John Wise living with Cora in Kentucky during the 1930 Census. Please correct his memorial.
Thank you.

Robert Kirkland
He was my gr-uncle, brother to my gr-mother, Amy Kirkland Sweeney, who died in a car-train collision 9/1935. He was married to a Rewis lady who preceded him in death. Her parents lived in Alva, Lee Co.,Fl. I have not been able to find any info re: her first name, parents name, or when and where she was buried etc. There is also no record or marker to indicate where Robert was buried in Ft. Denaud cemetery. Any info will be appreciated.

Memorial # 147865889
Hi Jen,
I will be glad to add the entire obit for M. Geiger, Memorial#147865889. She is of no relation to me, so I am going to transfer her memorial to you for maintenance. I live in Lee Co. Fla. and like to place for memorials for those who do not have a memorial. We need to remember and register those who have passed before us. I love this site.

Hi Jen,

How did you add the links for Hubert's foster parents and his brother? I'd like to do the same adding him as the foster son of Geo and Eva Whitehead but I don't know how.
