Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised and worked in northern Virginia. I'm a 67 year old Federal Government retiree with 43 years of service. Almost ten years after its inception, I found this site quite by accident when a co-worker asked me to help him at lunch time take a photograph of a headstone that was overgrown with bushes. After that, I was hooked fulfilling photo requests, primarily at nearby Arlington National Cemetery.

Then it occurred to me that this would be a great place (free (thus far)) to document my family tree for all to see, which would be based on the extensive genealogical research that my aunt has been doing for the past 25 to 30 years. This project of linking thousands of memorials is going to take a very long time (if it's at all possible) to complete due to several memorial creators, totally unrelated to my family, who will neither transfer ownership nor respond to SAC edits. That is not to say that all memorial creators are like that. Indeed, most are very gracious and totally responsive, and for that, I whole-heartedly thank them.

If I have a memorial for one of your relatives or even someone else whose memorial you're willing to maintain, I'll gladly transfer ownership upon request.

Here is how you request to have a memorial transferred to you:
1. Find and open the memorial you want to maintain.
2. Click on Edit in upper right corner.
3. Click on "Suggest any other correction or addition."
4. Type "Please transfer this memorial to me (and anything else you want to convey.)"
5. Click box for "I'm not a robot."
6. Click "Send this message."
You will receive a transfer and an e-mail.

I don't understand the reasoning behind many members wanting to hold on to memorials of folks they have no relation to, genetic or otherwise, when there are people willing to maintain them. Findagrave's guidelines are just that, guidelines. The logic behind the beyond-the-two-generation and non-direct-line transfer request guideline from multiple members is specious at best; those requesters would be related and should be able to work out maintenance issues better than the unrelated memorial creator.

Regarding duplicate memorials, it's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I that have made, please submit an SAC on the Edit tab of the memorial page and let me know, and provide the number of the original memorial. Thank you.

You have my permission to use any of my photos, as long as you include attribution. (Please don't ask, just use them.)

Thomas Samuel McInturff
Hi Cous
It has been a while since I spoke to you, hope all is well, we are all fine, just cross the path of Thomas Samuel McInturff, I have a Memory of him in McInturff Cemetery # 3 on our land (farm) in Tennessee (Find A Grave # 156154179)thou I was always told that he was missing at sea that his body was never found, thou I found where there was a Monument at Fort William McKinley, Manila, the Phillippines, so I am guessing that this is what you found (Find A Grave # 56784156). My point is can you or would you combine these two, he not in McInturff Cemetery #3, but he was born just up the road from the cemetery, his mother (Myrtle) and all his sisters I can remember real well, but Tom I never new, I was born in May of 1944 and he died in Oct of 1944. I got his birth date and infro from his sister about 20 years ago. Nan been gone now since 2012, Nan, Ruth and Mytle are burial in Roselawn Cemetery. A sister Venie is buried down the road in Jones Cemetery. If you can straight my mess out then I will delete him from McInturff Cemetery # 3, or we can have both with both Find A Grave number, it up to you, Thanks Barb

Thank you for taking photos at Arlington. They are so helpful for those of us living outside of Virginia. And your tombstone group photos are beautiful.

Thanks David for transferring! I also do not know why people seem to "hoard" graves.

Since Yours was 1st..
David since yours was 1st we can merge all the information I supplied into yours if that is acceptable or transfer MgMT to me. The photos I supplied are all originals. I too worked for Arlington Natl Cemetery. You may have seen my published photojournalistic article on the 150th Anniversary of ANC last year in Army Magazine, Stars and Stripes and USA TODAY.
Call me if you want to talk. Leave message if I fail to answer.
