I love Find A Grave! Although relatively new, I'm proud to be a member. This site is great for helping people find lost loved ones, whether they are close relatives, ancestors or friends.
I will transfer, upon request, any memorial I don't have a connection with (which include most of the ones I've posted). Just ask me.
I haven't posted that many yet, but most are for people with whom I have no connection. I hope that someone will eventually claim them and add info & photos to them. (See George Tuggle message below--a heartwarming, success story.)
I don't think it matters whether you were related or if you were a friend, when you ask to have a memorial transferred to you it means you care enough to maintain that memorial.
The memorials are an even richer source of information when families/friends add their stories. Memorials can be created by strangers, but they can't be personalized by strangers. If I am maintaining the memorial of your loved one or ancestor & you want it transferred to you, please just give me your ID#. I will click the button to make it happen--it's that easy.
Contributors should remember that they will always receive the credit for creating a memorial even though they transfer it. So, come on people--DO THE RIGHT THING!
RE: George Deatherage Oh, my gosh, Linda..I just sent you an edit message on John. A Hardman. And it's kind of a messy one! Are you anywhere near Rogers cemetery? If you are I'll give you something to check on there. If not I won't bother to type it out. Let me know. Thanks. Sharon #47583936
RE: Rexroat family Linda, Thank you very much for all of the transfers, I have some work to do now! The Rexroat's are my mothers side of my family tree. You are wonderfully nice, keep up the great work!
Thank you! ... for creating the Dunfee and Dunphey memorials in ILL Morgan County Rogers Cemetery and transferring them to me. From the obituary on their mother, I knew the Dunfees existed but didn't know their names or dates. I really appreciate that you provided that missing information in the memorials you created. Thanks again!
Thank You Hello Im Cory McElvogue I personally would like to thank you for leaving a flower at my grandpas page. Even though you dont have a connection to him. I think its cool that youd do something that nice for a stranger.
George Tuggle Hi Linda Thank you so much for the transfer. I have been busy and found out a lot. He has been like a little lost soul for so long , at least in a little way he now come home to the family. I really appreciate it. Adrian
RE: John Edgmond Hi Linda, Though not related and living close to the Iowa border, I entered internment records for Missouri. A wonderful lady named Judie has taken on supplying photo's for the headstones in John's cemetery. When she adds one, she lets me know and I do some research on some of the people/families....looking in death certificates, census records, etc.
If there are any other memorials you'd like me to transfer, or any information I might look up/research for you, just let me know.
RE: Kingery Family Hi Linda, That would've been our cousin Ben Kingery. One of my Kingery books that I am writing is, "VOl. II, The Missing Lineage" I have a couple copies of the book by Ben Kingery.
Another book I started writing is strictly on Michael Kingery and his children. I have to write another Kingery book since Micheal's lineage is so extensive. This third Kingery book will detail the lineages from Johannes' siblings, including the famed Jacob and Frankie Kingery. This would be quite enormous in volume and would perhaps be broken into a two or three volume set. The last book would take the family back to the motherland along the Rhine river.
The information is from my 25 years of researching and is as detailed as possible. The 2nd volume which entails Samuel Kingery and Catherine Spong, only includes the family which were inadvertently missed in Ben's book. The format and numbering system will remain the same.
RE: Kingery Family Oh, how much you're missing. Try this one out... BUT FIRST: I am from Lorna Kingery (my mom) Glenn Leo Kingery, Edward Willis Kingery, James Morgan Kingery, Elias Elbert Kingery Sr., Samuel Kingery Sr., Michael Kingery...
...And now the rest of the line.....
Christian Gingery (my 6th Great), Johannes Heinrich GŁengerich, Michal GŁengerich, Christian GŁengerich, Michel GŁengerich and lastly Lienhard GŁengerich in 1561.
I will say I have the Land record History of Johannes from 1734 after his 7 year indenturement to William Penn's three brothers. Johannes landed at the port of Philadelphia, PA on 2 Oct 1727 on the ship called, "Adventure Galley".
