Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been a passion for years. Find A Grave is a way for me to "pay it forward". By helping others find their families, I can repay the many who helped me in my search. Find A Grave has been a wonderful tool for me.

This is a hobby. I have a full-time job and can't do this everyday. Therefore, my response times may vary. To ensure there are no misunderstandings, to reduce errors and to keep my participation manageable, here are my expectations.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule. While I do believe memorials best belong with family members, I may in some cases choose to retain them. In those instances, I will be happy to add additional information or links. Certainly, I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances.

REQUESTING TRANSFERS: Use the "Edit" button; I will not respond to email transfer requests. This helps ensure accuracy. Please do not request multiple transfers in one message; one person per request. Do not send requests like "transfer all Smiths in this cemetery". To comply with transfer policy, you must fully explain your relationship to the individual. You must include your Find A Grave name and contributor number; I will not search for you.

LINKS: While genealogy is a secondary function of Find A Grave, I think linking makes Find A Grave more informative and is a great genealogy tool. Again, use the "Edit" button. I will not respond to email requests. One person per request. For example, if you want to link all the children of a couple to the parents, send an individual request for each child. Be sure to include your name and contributor number.

PICTURES: My pictures are not in the "public domain". Do not copy or distribute them without my expressed written permission.

MORE ON PICTURES: I recently got a "complaint" that I didn't "straighten" the flowers in a picture. I don't go to the cemetery to take pictures of flowers. My goal is to record the family information on the stone. I may even "crop" the flowers out of a picture in order to get a better picture of the history. Plus, I DO NOT DISTURB the gravesite. At times, I've basically "stood on my head" to take a picture so as not to disturb the gravesite. It doesn't always make for perfect pictures but, just know, I did my best to preserve the history without disturbing anything. They all need to REST IN PEACE!

MY SON: I lost my son, Dustin, in 2009. Please visit his memorial 67376999. He is sorely missed every day.

IN CASE OF DEATH: I'm planning to become a very OLD lady! It's challenging to get links, transfers, corrections when a contributor is deceased. Therefore, Kathy Vanchieri or Amanda Ware will assume control of my memorials upon my demise. It's in my will!

Peggy Ray
Ann Lay
You sent me a SAC for Ann Lay to change her name from Ann Lay to Emma Lay. I have requested a photo of her tombstone to see what her tombstone says. I had already added a note to her bio that stated that her birth name was Emma Ann.

Cheryl: Are you related to Matilda? I have linked her to her 1st husband Joseph D. Parish. I have their marriage certificate. Parish is my line.
Thanks for all the work you contribute to

Gallaher Cemetery - Joseph Gallaher
I have marker for Joe and Laura Gallaher.
His dates are 1905-1993. Could this possibly be the one you are looking for?
