Happy to help or share information. Please feel free to use any information or images I have uploaded for personal use (only), including posting on other non-commercial genealogy sites (i.e. free sites).

It is much easier for me if you use the Edit options rather than sending me a message or a suggestion (thanks, I appreciate you doing that for ... (read more)

Tony & Cindy Lloyd (235,463 Memorials)
I live in Nebraska and recently took over the Genealogy torch from my grandmother. I have had numerous people take photos of cemetery stones for me and I thought I would like to do the same for others. My wife Cindy helps to take photos, enter names, and deal with the thousands of corrections.

Special thanks goes out to Jenn O. (#47041892) for a... (read more)
Not Forgotten - Wis. (529,248 Memorials)
TRANSFER POLICY: YES! I WILL TRANSFER! *PLEASE* ASK ME FOR TRANSFERS! I'm not trying to get a high number of memorials!

1. I DO NOT apply Find a Grave's relationship recommendation/requirement. Whether the individual is your family, friend, neighbor or even just someone you are researching - I will transfer the memorial to you if y... (read more)
John Smolarek (238,795 Memorials)
Hi. Most of the memorials are for family to find and to ask for the management be transferred to them. All others: use the Edit function in the upper right of a memorial for corrections and suggestions.
ProgBase (469,147 Memorials)
I'm trying to find lots of records for people looking for their ancestors. I try to do SACs within 48 hours (unless they're local to me, then I need time to add them to my spreadsheets) but may not have time to message you. If sending SACs, please finish your research first (I got five non-duplicate SACs in twenty minutes on the same memorial from the... (read more)
Christina (262,167 Memorials)
If information can be updated using the first five options under the Edit tab, please use that feature.

'Suggest any other correction or addition' should only be used when the information you wish to have added cannot be sent using the first five options. Please also note that this option has a limit of 20 per week.

Regarding articles/ob... (read more)
BKGenie (592,595 Memorials)
The memorials I have created on Find A Grave are a reflection of my interest in genealogy and data manipulation. Most are a result of me converting information from online burial lists. I sincerely hope I have made it easier for people to find their ancestors.

If I have fulfilled a photo request for you please consider paying it for... (read more)
Cyndi (1,291,327 Memorials)

For transfers, please use the edit tab, then 'Suggest any other change or correction'.

jlong (532,008 Memorials)
If you have found a family member Memorial on Find A Grave then you are the recipient of some kindness and effort on the part of a volunteer. Someone once said that creating Memorials on FAG is like the proverbial Message-in-a-bottleŚ being cast out onto the sea of the internet, waiting to be found and linked back to a family. I enjoy creating those M... (read more)
Marvin & Samme Templin (509,324 Memorials)
We completed a survey of all known cemeteries in McMinn County plus transcribed McMinn County death certificates from 1914-1955.
Surnames we are reseaching: Marvin's lineage = Templin, Click, Bryant, Sisk, Smith, Waddell, Gross. Samme's lineage = Carpenter, Simpson, Hutsell, Julian, Warren

If your messages are disabled, I cannot communicate with you.

Transfers: I follow the Find a Grave 4x guidelines for transfers, no exceptions. Please use the Edit tab and remember to include your contributor number and E... (read more)
Headstone Genealogist (428,159 Memorials)
A simple "Transfer please." is all that is required to request a memorial transfer. The transfer will usually happen. (Over 45,000 transfers to date)
III (482,646 Memorials)
Graves (732,022 Memorials)
If you don't hear from me it isn't because I'm ignoring you. All of my Find-a-Grave emails go to my email account set up specifically for Find-a-Grave. I only read those messages when I'm sitting down to work on Find-a-Grave - not every day.

FYI - I bypass email change requests that point out a problem without a solution (such as stating I have... (read more)
Momstore (226,403 Memorials)
I would be happy to make any corrections or edits to these memorials. PLEASE USE THE EDIT/SEND A CORRECTION LINK.

If someone is your direct family line, I'll be happy to transfer them to you, as long as the person is within the Find a Grave guidelines for transfer. Do NOT send me a list of names or numbers.

JOHN SVADBIK (3,265,996 Memorials)
Super Squirrel. Our family tree is full of nuts.

I enjoy researching especially online the parish records of Czech Republic and Austria. The records are usually in Latin, German Gothic or Czech, which I speak none of. The German Gothic is crazy hard to read the characters. I live in Miami, Florida. As more Cemetery records go online this helps to... (read more)
Mookie (206,284 Memorials)
I've been doing family research for over twenty years and it is still a favorite past-time.

Please use the edit system for edits, as anything else may take a lot longer.

Find A Grave has become a useful research tool, but has also been abused a bit. I try very hard not to connect any of my memorials to those that are labeled "burial unkn... (read more)
Dave (209,123 Memorials)
Dwight Baker (190,604 Memorials)
I live on the Travis and Williamson County border in Texas.

If you find one of your family members that I have created a memorial for, then feel free to request a transfer to you.

If you have family links, I will also be glad to add them for you also.

I take most of the photos I post myself and give you permission to use them or cop... (read more)
Twist (222,878 Memorials)

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

When making requests for edits or transfer, please use the SAC (suggest a correction) method from the edit tab on that memorial. Sorry, edits or transfers will not be made from emails or wall postings, which would be needlessly inefficient. If you need assistance in using the edit tab, please refer to the Find A ...

Lostnwyomn (243,689 Memorials)
Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials.

Stuart Strout Woodside Skolfield (228,524 Memorials)
I guess I was 12 when my uncle George started telling me of my family roots, and gave me a lot of research. If you see any information that is not correct, please let us know. More than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials, but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what ... (read more)

I live in Maplewood Missouri.
I can go to several cemeteries for pictures.
Please let me know if we can help. My helper is my 13 pound dog Lola who chases the birds and other critters around while I look for tombstones.

One of my dearest furry kids passed today. Siggy may you rest well

No Links to unknown burial

Tom Myers (358,373 Memorials)
I've been actively involved with genealogical research for over 25 years. My specialty is Bucks County, PA and surrounding areas.
John C. Anderson (429,226 Memorials)
My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest co... (read more)
Sally - Midcoast Maine (173,010 Memorials)

Thanks to everyone who sends edits and posts photo's. I think it is great seeing the missing info getting filled in.

I will transfer management regardless of relation; however I will keep my direct family memorials.

Feel free to use my photos, they are there for everyone to use.

If you send appropriate content via the Edit system I am happy to update - Be assured anyone can use the EDIT or the photo upload function to add information

I am retired. Enjoy baseball (Atlanta Braves) and many other hobbies. I believe Find A is a wonderful idea and hopefully more people will help identify a lot of the ones that have passed before us. I especially enjoy following some of the older graves especially those who fought in the civil war and have photos. This is so interesting to think... (read more)
