Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies. Please send citation information (e.g., name of publication, publication date, page number, etc.) instead.

For memorials that I manage, I prefer to have searches for the information on the headstone be able to bring up the memorial. For instance, if the stone says Ethel Jones, I will keep the name listed as Ethel Jones. If Ethel's legal name was Gladys Ethel Jones, I will note that in the biography.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.


Feel free to use my photos under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

I license my photos this way for two reasons. I want people to be able to use them. And I want credit so that down the road if someone has questions (e.g., "Were there any any infant graves nearby?"), they can ultimately track me down. Proper sourcing is vital for quality genealogy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Thanks for transfer of Carroll records
Dear Mr Weiss,

Thanks for transferring to me the records for James, Michael, and Thomas Carroll. They are relatives of my husband, whose family I research.

Your photos are much appreciated as well.

Best regards,
L. Milne

Please transfer both of the above Find A Grave memorials to me. They are the parents of my husband Ervin Gabriel and I have more information to enter.

RE: Downing Transfers
Hi Mr Weiss, thank you very much for transferring Lee, Blanche, Ivy and Kenneth Downing's Memorial Pages. It was so great to be able to join family members, serving as Missionaries in Kenya, to their families in the United States. It means so much to my family, young and old to relate to their ancestors through Find A Grave. And thanks for the information regarding Faith Downing, I will pursue your suggestions. Thanks again for your generosity, Esther

Frederick Page - Photo Request
Mr. Page is in a columbarium compartment. Tried today to get a picture inside the compartment but it is almost impossible to get a picture of the inside of the compartment. These indoor columbariums have glass fronts with lots of sunlight coming in through the windows. Unfortunately, I do not have the equipment to get a good picture.

Photo of Richard Glenn Weiss
I have a photo of a child with his dog which was discovered when going through some old photos. On the back is written:

Richard Glenn Weiss and Bud
Merrill, Wis

Since I have no connection to Richard, I looked him up on Ancestry. I assume he is an ancestor of yours. Please contact me if you would be interested in the photo.

Okay, thanks. I'll try and get a photo later this week, weather permitting of course.

Frederick Page - Photo Request

Regarding Frederick Page burial in Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery in Regina, SK, is this gentleman's name Frederick Arthur Page? If so, is his date of death 2006 instead of 2008?

Thanks for transferring though you didn't have to do that. I will be sure to pass it on to a direct relative if one should come along. I'm not related. Nice headstone photo. Thanks for all you're doing for Find A Grave. ~Terry
