I only post memorials for people to whom I am related by blood or marriage (with two exceptions, see below). I also maintain an Ancestory.com site with information on my deceased relatives. I'm happy to share links to that site upon request from any relative.
Transfer requests will be honored for any memorials honoring any of person to whom I am collaterally related whenever the person making the request is more closely related to the decedent than I am. Please request transfers via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please include your relationship, along with your Find A Grave contributor number, along with the Find A Grave memorial number(s) for any memorial(s) you are requesting be transferred.
The "Suggest a Correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials even if you are not requesting transfer of maintenance. I would also appreciate any information which you could provide to update and/or correct the genealogical information contained on my genealogy website.
I have begun posting memorials for members of the 27th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment when such memorials are not already posted. I will happily transfer those memorials to direct or close collateral descendants of those veterans.
I have also posted a few memorials for deceased members of my high school graduating class. Again, I will happily transfer those memorials to close family members of the deceased.
RE: Zetta & Irving Kaufman I'm not related so the transfer has been done. I researched him to locate Zetta for you since the cemetery couldn't locate her. Greenwood is very bad with records so I've learned to be creative in my searches.
RE: Re: Zetta Kaufman Yes I check that website when the office can't locate a record. She is in the Bible Mausoleum but it is four stories tall. I walked about a fourth of that end yesterday but did not find her. I will try again but I am leaving on a 2 week trip so it may have to wait until my return or someone else finds her - just don't delete the memorial.
RE: Cousins Hi Greg! I've been doing a little bit of genealogy research too, so I'd love to see what you have!
The Laughlin name and where they are buried...they are buried close to the Elliott's. My father was very close to his grandfather, Drew Holt. Even at 81 years old, Dad will still stop by Drew and Stella's grave. He tells stories about going to visit grandma Laughlin (Stella's mother) and how her kids had bought her a new gas stove but she wouldn't use it. She'd still cook over a fire.
For the number of times I've been called Stella in my life, I'm pretty sure something about her and the Laughlin's should be put on my epitaph some day. :-) Good to 'meet' you!
Isaac and Sarah Barks Isaac and Sarah Barks are my third great grandparents too. I'm through David and his wife Ruth Shrum Barks. Went to that cemetery and took pictures of all the tombstones that were visible and readable. Just have to download this week (in case you had anyone else you wanted to see).
