Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find information and links for the memorials I create (and am aware that I am human and do make mistakes) so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I am also happy to do transfers but please don't send me a transfer request just stating "transfer it to me so I can update it" or ask me to link to "burial unknowns." Every edit or transfer request I receive gets researched and checked against the people buried near them to see if I can find a connection. So please if you have the information, use the edit tab to send the suggestion and THEN ask for the transfer.

Also I create memorials for families so please do not ask for a transfer because you are collecting Civil War soldiers, Pioneers, or whole cemeteries etc. These were real people, not something to be collected and I refuse to treat them as such.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have added photos, send corrections or shared stories or obituaries with me about the memorials in my care. And to those who kindly accept the many edit/link requests that I send out.

A note about photos:
I have been using the beta photo up-loader and one of its quirks is that it doesn't show you if there is already a photo on a memorial. I have tried to delete any duplicate photos I have accidentally added but if you find I have missed one please feel free to let me know.

Think I messaged you earlier, but meant to say that Thomas, Allen and Edith Otterman were siblings to Maggie Otterman. Their parents were Pretty Woman and Otterman. Hope I haven't been too confusing. Thank you again.

Riverside Cemetery Aberdeen SD
Hi Mary. Thank you for all the work you have done. I just wanted to let you know that my son is just finishing up his Eagle Scout Project of photographing all the tombstones in Riverside Cemetery in Aberdeen, SD. I know that you have photographed many many of the thousands of tombstones there and thought I would let you know so that you don't duplicate his work unless you want to. It has been a very time consuming project, but he hopes to finish it up this fall.

I have deleted the extra one. Will leave it unless you want to make the links to yours. Just let me know.

I have done that before - create 2 of the same one when my finger gets a little over eager! :-)

Thank you so much for the edit on her, we have struggled to find info on Lydia and I have had this memorial transferred to me as she is my Great great grandmother. No I do not hold many memorials, my daughter and I are just beginning our journey into our genealogy and find-a-grave has been a great help and all the wonderfully helpful people like yourself are a Godsend to us.

I knew they had lived in the Aberdeen area.

Thank you again!

Memorial transfer request
Hi there!

Would you be so kind as to transfer memorial #138673161 over to me (#48073435)? I would greatly appreciate it. Joseph is my cousin.

Thank you!
