Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you find someone you are related to and would like to take over their page, please request a transfer through the EDIT option, on the particular individual's page. Select "Suggest" and type in your request, which will then send me an email that will be linked to the person.
I've been doing genealogy since 1988. I love walking through cemeteries, imagining the lives of the people I pass.
Most of the pages I post are for people to whom I am not related. (the ones I am connected to usually have a photo of the person added). These "extra" people are ones from local (and not so local) cemeteries that my husband & I photograph their stones and I enter them on FAG, trying to link as many as I can so the families are brought back together after all this time. I do lots of research to accomplish this and I hope I add correct information. I love to connect these people and I'm always thrilled when something comes together, either through the census, obits, marriage records, a family genealogy, Rootsweb entries, or even "social" news in an old newspaper. I hope I find "homes" with descendants for all these people. Please ask for a transfer if you are related.

as an added comment--I always try to guesstimate a person's birth year, based on age at death, so it obviously is not always correct. I just feel that a person searching for an ancestor will be less confused with an estimated birth year, rather than having to paw through other entries with no year listed at all.

Pannell Family
As I go thru my Pannell family, I see you have the same message on them. I will try to list them so that you can transfer them to me also in addition to John, which you already transferred if you'd like.

John Pannell # 52706276
I came across my family member on your find a grave and I saw your note saying if this is your family member you can turn over the memorial.
John Pannell is my ancestor.
If you would like to turn it over, I would be more than happy to take it.
Thank you so much.

Memorial Transfers
Hi Cheri;
Yes, I would be willing to manage Richard's parent's memorials. I have contacted the town clerk to get his father's death date, but they have no record of him! Go figure. So, I am researching in other ways.
Please transfer memorials #148294891 and #148295002

This will be greatly appreciated!
Once again, a great many thanks for all your help and all you do for findagrave.

I want to say a big THANK YOU for transferring Richard's memorial to me. It means a lot that you took the time to create the memorial and to then let me manage it.
It is people like you that make findagrave such a wonderful place.
Again, many thanks for your help and all the hard work you do for findagrave.

Richard H. McNeil, Jr #148471321
Hi Cheri!
Could you please transfer Richard H. McNeil, Jr's memorial to me. He is my first cousin's husband and she is not a findagrave member but would like his memorial managed by a family member.
I really would appreciate the favor.
Thanks for your help.
