Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't link to "Burial Unknown". This isn't your note folder. If you want me to put the names of the parents or spouse in the bio section, send me the name in a suggestion.

Before you send me an 'edit' to link to a spouse, take a moment to see if YOU have the memorial for the spouse. If so . . . why are you sending me that 'edit'? Just link them.

If you discover someone has transferred a duplicate to you, I can get that taken care of if you transfer that duplicate to me.

I don't, knowingly, put the names of living people on memorials. If you see something I missed, please let me know so I can delete it. If you are composing an email to me with all the names of the living descendants you want me to put in the bio of a memorial, including your own name, save us both some time . . you to write it; me to read it and delete it.

I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friend's memorial.

I like to look up additional info. for other people's memorials. More folks should hop off the 'flower' button and hop on a death index or the census, and send some 'edit's, to actually improve more memorials on the site.

On July 28th, 2013 I was blessed to receive almost 45,000 abandoned memorials to work on in Italian Cemetery in Colma, CA. I worked on them nearly every day for 3 years and found homes for a large portion of them. On August 8th, 2016 I transferred the remaining 26,911 memorials to the Find A Grave account. I will continue to work on them, just at a slower pace.

I want to thank all the photographers out there getting headstone photos on memorials so the rest of us can sit on the couch and 'visit' our relatives. You may never know just how grateful we are.

You want to acknowledge all the marriages, but you don't want a crappy looking memorial with 6 last names crammed into the maiden and/or last name space.
Find A Grave suggests;
The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' space is only for her maiden name.

John William Inman
I'm inclined to think John William was buried at Hebron Cem. in Anderson Co., since most of his other family members are buried in Anderson Co. On the other hand, Sherman & Herman's father John William Inman had roots in Mercer Co., hence their burial at Mount Hebron in Mercer Co. Best regards, Bill C.

James Rhoda Stone
Do you have any information about a daughter James Stone had during his first marriage to Elizabeth mchaney? Her name was Rhoda and stone Smith. Do you know when she passed away? I am trying to determine to the mother of my great-great-grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Smith was. Records say it was Rhoda Stone Smith but census records and the birthdate listed on Sarah's death certificates do not match up. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated and I will give you more information as needed.

RE: What?
related not me either. I just meant we both make a lot of memorials most of them not for our family. Just always like to touch bases before I accept edits. BJ

thanks for the edits for them both. Always ask if people are related to those they submit edits for; even if they are prolific memorial creators. We have family out there also. BJ

Corvallis Islamic Cemetery request

I live in Corvallis and have ties to the Islamic community through my teaching their children in the past and friendships over many years.

I respect my Islamic friends for their sense of privacy and their own customs surrounding death and burial. I can speak to my friends but I wanted to know if this is a random request or if you are related to, or know, the family. They do not mark their graves, I am told, and wonder if they would approve the inclusion of any photos.

I am more than willing to do this; however, I will need to act, or not, within appropriate boundaries. Very interesting!

Transfer of Julius Janetsky
Thank you for the FG transfer of Julius Janetsky. For a long time I have been researching survivors of the Troopship "Tuscania" in which my Grandfather was one such survivor.
