Just a note to let you know that the place of burial is Oslo Western Civil Cemetery in Oslo, Norway.

Also, the memorial is active for people to make corrections that shouldn't be touching it.

Thanks! Have a great day! Jayne

Findagrave disaster
Russ, the person second down from this message is absolutely correct. I cannot believe the mess that is being made to the memorials. One father, one (wife) mother, and a lot of the children suddenly have double asterisks after their names. Have you any idea about what is going on? Often a man and his wife's names show up twice in the parents' linking area. This started with the new impersonal Edit capability. Is help on the way?

The Tides of Time
Sibling tag
Hi Russ,

Could you please pass this message on to whoever is the right person?

The siblings section in FindAGrave is becoming a disaster -- for an example, check here this FindAGrave profile - 52433721 - You’ll see that people are being tagged as siblings from the same father . . . with different last names.

I’ve also seen profiles in which people are tagged as being siblings with their own parents. And there seems no way to edit or fix this.

Before you spawn endless totally screwed up genealogies, you might want to have your programmers take a look at this.

PFC Bruce Wayne Carter
Would make a few corrections to his bio.

The Congressional Medal of Honor or CMOH is incorrect. It's the Medal of Honor or MOH.

PFC stands for Private First Class. When abbreviated it's used as PFC, not Pfc.

Vietnam is incorrect, it's Vietnam.

He was survived by his mother, Georgianna
Louise Gibson and 2 sisters of Miami Springs,
His father was Gilford Randolph Carter.

Thank you,

Jerry Owen
RE: Cypress Hills Cemetery
I think he is a volunteer at Cypress Hill. He is helping clear up all of the records. He said, if he could document the changes, the admins would change the records. He wanted to confirm the name and death date of a Tippah County, MS native that was wounded and captured at Gettysburg, and died in the NY hospital. The CSA vet from Ripley, MS was Green McCarley. You photographed his stone and sponsored his memorial at Findagrave. And I thank you most sincerely.


His record at Cypress matches ours at Findagrave.

I just got a request for information concerning
Green McCarley, buried at Cypress Hills National Cemetery in NY.

You photographed that stone for me back in 2000, now someone needs the information for the records at Cypress Hills.

And I thank you most sincerely,

Tannenberg again

This shows a series of photos. Near the bottom are several of the cenotaph stone for Ulrich von Jungingen.

Is the "cemetery" you created at Tannenberg the one I need to use?

Thanks again, Kendall

Tannenberg Memorial - location?
Hello, Russ! I found your memorial for Paul von Hindenburg at the Tannenberg Memorial and would like to create a memorial for at least one other person who is either buried or has a cenotaph there. However, when I check Wikipedia, the location appears to be different, rather in Olsztyn County, in Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship of Poland. (
I'm not sure whether I need to create a new cemetery for Ulrich von Jungingen, who fell at Tannenberg and who is said to be memorialized on the monument there, whether yours is the one I need.
Any suggestions?
Thank you!
Kendall Mellem

I have a photo of Medal of Honor winner Alexander Mitchell Beattie but findagrave has determined that no mores photos are needed. But there are no photos of him. Is there a way to add a photo of him?

Joseph Reed memorial #20308
You have posted a headstone photo for Joseph Reed memorial #20308.

I see that their daughter is on the headstone and I created a memorial for her at #132136741 and requested a photo. If you post your photo on it then you will get credit and I will get a photo. The first photo is the list has the clearest picture of her portion of the stone so that would be a great one to post. Thank you for all that you do for findagrave.

Randall Parker Cemetery, Davidson Co., TN
Hi Russ, I have managed many of the memorials in Randall Parker Cemetery in Nashville, Davidson Co., TN. I have the coordinates & directions to this cemetery & have tried to find a way to place this on the info for the cemetery. There doesn't seem to a way to do this for this cemetery. I have received many questions about the directions. Would there be a way to add the directions &/or coordinates to the cemetery? Below I'm sending you what I have. Thank you, Marilyn Whittemore Adams

From Columbia, through Nashville to Scottsboro
N 36 13.320
W 086 54.833
Elev. 466 Ft

To the Cemetery:

On Hydes Ferry Pike turn right by the Lewis Country Store (north on Old Hickory Blvd)

Go just a little ways and look for the Baptist Church on the left

Pass the church and about 300 yards, look to the right to a road by mailboxes and an old concrete bridge

Cross the bridge and keep to the right; you'll see an old metal sign with the name of the cemetery almost embedded into a tree

As soon at you come up to a clearing (just a short distance) you'll see the cemetery on the right; there is an access road through a private home driveway, but you can park in the field and walk up to it.

purchase by ancestry
It seems to me always said they would not sell out.
But have.
This has been a problem for me since bought
People think I am a relative of some sort to the entries I've posted at Which I am not.
And I am not an member.
I have photographed gravestones from about 40 cemeteries and posted to so people can find their relatives/ancestors.
Now that ancestry has taken over findagrave I won't be doing this anymore.
The new way to add info to findagrave entries is very handy but all sorts of people send along that info and when I click on Accept to allow it to be added, the person that provided it is not mentioned. It looks like I provided that info.
This is going to be a big mess! :-)

Copyright photos
If you can't help me, maybe you can pass this message on to someone who can.

Contributor Gayle 47879805, has removed messages I left her asking her to remove copyright photos she has added to memorials that I have created. I even quoted the rules from Findagrave so she wouldn't think I was being contrary with her.

Could the photos on these memorials be removed please?

I hate to bother the administrators with this, but some contributors just refuse to follow the rules.

Thank you for your time.

Capt John H. Vanderveer
Hello Russ,

I am researching Capt John H. Vanderveer and was so excited to come across your page with a photo of him! I have seen another close up photo of his grave though and the date on it appears to say 1866. Is there confirmation on his death date? Please let me know. Thank you so much!
