Bio and Links

Keeping and maintaining our relatives.

Redistributing the other memorials to someone we know will take care of them and isn't interested in collecting dead people like normal people collect friends.

NOTE: If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to be a manager, please make arrangements to transfer your memorials to someone who is active and cares about the accuracy of the information. This really will help reduce duplicates, which we notice with increasing frequency.

If you place memorials and don't come back, or you refuse or neglect to fix them, link them, etc., they are as abandoned as many of the graves we encounter in cemeteries, only you have now abandoned these people twice.

It would also be a good idea to leave a family member or friend instructions on how to make transfers of your memorials in the event of your own untimely death.

In addition, it's not up to you to make new FAG rules regarding anything.

Thank You

(Borrowed from another active FAG Contributor)

"Ancestors are nice to have
We could hardly do without them
And if they made the page of fame
We strut and boast about them.

But there are those who think that souls
Who have lived out life's brief span
Still hang around their earth's abode
To watch the works of man.

So when I think of ancestors
Who have crossed the Great Divide
I wonder if they view my life
With the same exultant pride."

By Pearl E. Bowers
2nd Cousin, 3X removed

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932.

RE: Julia
Thanks. I have been working on Riverside w/ the cemetery secretary. If I come across another Julia McGuire there I will let you know. If she is there, she is unmarked and alone. Those are the graves that I have started working on.
Thanks again.

Hi my name is Anthony Bourdon and Camilla is my 4th cousin twice removed. His name is Alfred Elroy Carson. I found their a copy of their marriage license and it gave both their birth dates and places of birth. She was born 10 Aug 1875. He was born 18 Sep 1876. They were married on 14 Apr 1903, in Bradford, McKean, Pennsylvania by an Alderman.

RE: newspapers
Hi Kevin, Sorry you're less than well, hope you'll recover in good time. I reached retirement age, and have a few issues to deal with about that, financial and otherwise. Re: newspapers, originally I was paying less than $100 a year, but they snuck the price up so it's now $100 every six months. I didn't renew because I don't use it enough - I am now working with a lot of death certificates, which I get at the library, sending lots of edits and improving other peoples work. I stopped even looking at "current" obituaries, because certain people are putting them on half-assed before the bodies are cold, so I give up on that score. It's a relief not dealing with that nonsense anymore. Hope it's soon that you'll get better....Cousin Ted

RE: Harold Kagle
The transfer has been made. I'm sorry to hear that you have some serious health problems. When the operation is over and you are back to work, let me know and I will stop in for a short visit.

If you knew this person and wish for a transfer, I will do it. I'm getting along OK for the average person my age. Thanks for asking.

Contact info?
I looked all over the Find A Grave site and can't find out how to contact the administrators of Find a Grave directly. doesn't look like the way to go. Do you have the address or link?
