Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies. Please send citation information (e.g., name of publication, publication date, page number, etc.) instead.

For memorials that I manage, I prefer to have searches for the information on the headstone be able to bring up the memorial. For instance, if the stone says Ethel Jones, I will keep the name listed as Ethel Jones. If Ethel's legal name was Gladys Ethel Jones, I will note that in the biography.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.


Feel free to use my photos under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

I license my photos this way for two reasons. I want people to be able to use them. And I want credit so that down the road if someone has questions (e.g., "Were there any any infant graves nearby?"), they can ultimately track me down. Proper sourcing is vital for quality genealogy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Can I get permission to use the headstone photo you have listed on Thomas A Nodine's memorial for my tree please. I always add who added the photo along with the date added and the memorial number.

Philip, Would you have anymore information on Johanna Silbernagel. She was married to my Great-Grandfather Johann Silbernagel. They had a farm near St. Anthony's Cemetery Napoleon.N.D.
I do not have a death record of her.
Any help would be appreciated.
Here is my E-mail address:
I thank you,

RE: Mary Milton
Would you have Mary Milton's memorial number?
I'm working with hundreds of Miltons / Meltons.
I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

Locations for Ulrich
Hi again, So Riverside Cemetery uses GPS for locating markers. The Edit I just sent you is for both Charles & Mary. Hope it helps you if you do attempt to locate them. Sue

Hi Philip, So as you can see I found Charles and his wife. I made the memorial for Mary A., glad to transfer to you, just say the word and I will.

I also took a photo showing them side by side, and another photo showing the view from their grave sites. I thought you might like to see it, it might help you locate them in the future.
Should I email them to you? Sue

Hi Philip, Like you I prefer to transfer management of a memorial rather than add information I don't know personally. So I have transferred Elaine to you. I photographed her marker when I was at Glen Haven with DAR friends. She is not related to me. Best wishes for all the work you do!

RE: Mary Sullivan
No worries. There are alot of typos of names in the SF Genealogy database for Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. I always check the SF Genealogy database to see how they spelled the name because the names posted in Find A Grave are from that database. I almost always find the name with that spelling and them make a request for a correction to the name based on the spelling on the marker.

Best wishes,
