Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been a passion for years. Find A Grave is a way for me to "pay it forward". By helping others find their families, I can repay the many who helped me in my search. Find A Grave has been a wonderful tool for me.

This is a hobby. I have a job and can't do this everyday. Therefore, my response times may vary. To ensure there are no misunderstandings, to reduce errors and to keep my participation manageable, here are my expectations.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule. While I do believe memorials best belong with family members, I may in some cases choose to retain them. In those instances, I will be happy to add additional information or links. Certainly, I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances.

REQUESTING TRANSFERS: Use the "Edit" button; I will not respond to email transfer requests. This helps ensure accuracy. Please do not request multiple transfers in one message; one person per request. Do not send requests like "transfer all Smiths in this cemetery". To comply with transfer policy, you must fully explain your relationship to the individual. You must include your Find A Grave name and contributor number; I will not search for you.

LINKS: While genealogy is a secondary function of Find A Grave, I think linking makes Find A Grave more informative and is a great genealogy tool. Again, use the "Edit" button. I will not respond to email requests. One person per request. For example, if you want to link all the children of a couple to the parents, send an individual request for each child. Be sure to include your name and contributor number.

PICTURES: You have permission to use my pictures. I would appreciate that you attribute them to "Cheryl, findagrave member 47386524". Doing so will allow somebody with questions about the cemetery to contact me.

MORE ON PICTURES: I recently got a "complaint" that I didn't "straighten" the flowers in a picture. I don't go to the cemetery to take pictures of flowers. My goal is to record the family information on the stone. I may even "crop" the flowers out of a picture in order to get a better picture of the history. Plus, I DO NOT DISTURB the gravesite. At times, I've basically "stood on my head" to take a picture so as not to disturb the gravesite. It doesn't always make for perfect pictures but, just know, I did my best to preserve the history without disturbing anything. They all need to REST IN PEACE!

MY SON: I lost my son, Dustin, in 2009. Please visit his memorial 67376999. He is sorely missed every day.

IN CASE OF DEATH: I'm planning to become a very OLD lady! It's challenging to get links, transfers, corrections when a contributor is deceased. Therefore, Kathy Vanchieri or Amanda Ware will assume control of my memorials upon my demise. It's in my will!

This is my Mother. I was so pleased to find that you are taking care of her site.

I would love to have the site transferred to me.

Thank you, Regina Herndon

Martha Turman-Shields Cemetery
Returned to Shields today - even walked in rain.
No sign of Martha Turnman. Remeber - Historical office and cemeteriesonly,com and Wayne Co. Cemeteries does not have her either. Strange - this usually does not happen to you.

Duplicate memorials
You contacted me in March about 2 duplicate memorials. Sorry I did not respond earlier but I have been working 350 hrs a month until recently.
You stated that I had duplicate memorials for Cleo Risner (Memorial# 124254894) & Carrie Risner (Memorial# 124254893). You stated the original memorials are memorial 10732538 & 42331042. These are probably the same people. The only problem is the original memorials are listed in the wrong Copeland cemetery. I have photographed the entire Copeland Cemetery on Tie Camp Road these graves are located there and not the Copeland Cemetery located off Bear Creek Road (Hwy 203). If you could get the owners of the original memorials to move them to the proper cemetery, I would be glad to turn mine over or merge them.
