I give of my time and resources because I love being able to help others find a missing piece of their family. I also love the format that Find A Grave provides. A FREE resource for family members to aid in their research and the ability to leave a message in memory of them.
The majority of the memorials I've added are not my family. When I went to a cemetery to fulfill a photo request I would often find many stones in the area with the same family name on them. I would photograph and post those as well if a memorial was not already made. It is my hope that it would help family members locate lost family members or aid in their research.
I will gladly transfer any of my memorials so they may be maintained by family members. I am honored to have had the opportunity to photograph and/or document a piece of family history for you and for future generations. When asking for a transfer please include your FAG member number. I cannot transfer a memorial to you without this number.
RE: Richard M. Bough, Vahalla Cemetery, Monroe Co. IN Thank you, yes I meant to say John Edward "Tad" Bough. We knew both John and William, they were twins. I was working late that night, grew tired, and must've typed in the wrong name. Good lesson for me, stop working when I'm tired! Thank you for checking and finding my error, much appreciated.

Richard M. Bough, Vahalla Cemetery, Monroe Co. IN I have left a request on your Edit page to link Richard to his parents: William Bough #12804693 and Estella Anderson Bough #79661599 in Ridgeport Cemetery, Greene Co., IN. Easier to do it from the Edit page. Thank you so much. Margaret #46995858
Beyer Cemetery Hello! I received your email for me to delete a memorial, but now I can not find that email. Can you message it to me again. Also, do you want me to transfer any of those other memorials to you (the ones you submitted edits on)? I am not related to any of them.
Theodore Lanam #126241069 Theodore is my husband's grandfather. You are credited with taking the photograph of Theodore's grave maker.
Glodina Lanam, Theodore's wife and my husband's grandmother, is on the same grave marker. I was hoping you would allow me to transfer a copy of your photo of this marker to Glodina's Find a Grave memorial #146958345. I would, of course, maintain your credit for the photo. I'm not even sure I can do it, actually.
Is this something you must do since you took the photo? I appreciate your help!
RE: Ruth Arthur SL, I was just going by what it said on the marker. But I've seen mistakes before. I should have checked the MCPL obituary index. They have a listing for Ruth Hellen (Allen) Arthur, Jan 20, 1947. But nothing for anyone named Arther. I'm sorry I bothered you before checking. Scott
Duplicates Thank you for letting me know about the duplicates, I am not sure how it happens sometimes I try to double check!! I have been working on Valhalla again I try to go back and look later sometimes I can catch them but I agree there is a glitch or something.
