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)

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.

Elizabeth Ann HUGUELY Lyon
Hello Jen,

I was just wondering if you had any death or burial info for Elizabeth Ann who married Anderson Morgan LYON. I have created a memorial for her in hopes of finding out what happened to her.

Thank you so much.

Let me look through my notes. If I remember correctly, it is still intact. Will advise.

Re: Padilla
Oh, and the younger Padilla. Think the other ones were already created but no photo, will check again.

RE: Padilla
Transferred the one I created. The ones I added pictures for, you can send them a msg asking. I always am willing to transfer, likely the ones who created the other ones, where I just got the picture would be too if you asked. Rose is now yours. :)
