|LeRoy Krsiean||RE: Thank you|
Thank you, Linda. I was just thinking about this duplicate stuff and I have gotten discouraged. I seriously have been thinking about hanging it up. I only have 4000 Memorials so I am not too deep into this. But I am concerned about searching that doesn't turn up a grave marker I have photographed. Then I create a Memorial only to have it be a duplicate. It is such a waste of time, and trouble for another member who takes the time to tell me about the duplicate. LeRoy

I have deleted all my Edmundson memorials which were duplicated in the Rutherford cemetery. The others were evidently by members of the family and had more information than I could provide. Thank you for calling the duplication to my attention.

I don't know how in the world I missed catching Earl Nash on a search. I have deleted my duplicate. I am trying to figure how just why I miss pulling up a memorial when I do a search. There is some quirkie stuff here. From time to time I can't even find Memorials that I created when doing a search. LeRoy

Thank you for bringing to my attention the duplicate Memorials I created. I have deleted my duplicates for Marian Sparkes, Charles Albrecht, Silas Burnside, Jennie Cassidy, and Robert Rose. Some of them simply did not turn up when I did a search because of variations in name spellings or rendering. I had very good BIO info about Robert Rose that was not on the original Memorial, so I copied my info and pasted it to the original before I deleted mine. Thanks very much for bringing this all to my attention. LeRoy

|Al Wilson||Memorial Transfer Request|
Thank you for all your hard work.
I would like to request the memorial of my great-aunt Dorothy A Wilson Bates (Find A Grave Memorial# 76244676) transfered to myself (Al Wilson (#46980136).

|Linda Landers Edwards||RE: merged memorials|
This photo was taken in Pritchard Cemetery which was once called Roberts Cemetery. There are several Robert's Cemeteries and I have only found 2 of them. I cannot find the one on Robert's Hill nor the one in Big Pine. Pritchard Cemetery is right beside Bowman-Rector Cemetery. The other one I found I can't remember the name of the road but it is also on private property and need permission to go there. I am researching surnames of Landers, Davis, Roberts and Paynes. Would love to share any info I may have.

I am related to a bunch of Futches in Dixie/Hamilton/Columbia Co., FL, but not Jacob. Have fun on your quest. Which Futch did she marry?...just curious, you never know when you might be talking to your 16th cousin, 6 times removed! Such fun, isn't it?

Hi Linda, No, I haven't quit find a grave. My husband died, and I haven't had time to use find a grave and ancestry.com. I am just now getting into it again. I will take care of the duplicates soon.

I've checked the cemetery book and it is a possibility that we both are in error, however I'm interested to know where the other memorial is located. Thanks for keeping a check on us, I often need it!!

|TenThousandYears||James Robert Miller|
You said: It appears that you have linked James Robert's son to him as siblings/brothers in error. Please correct these that belong to you.
This is not my memorial and I haven't linked anyone to it. Apparently Find A Grave is now showing siblings on memorials, without linking by contributors. However, my data indicates that the siblings shown on this memorial are correct.

I have added the 2nd wife to our family tree (Evin Layton Dowling) Can you email me the documentation to prove relationship of Nettie and her sister to my personal email as I am no longera paid member of ancestry.com as I have found more FREE information with Find a grave. I have updated the Dowling family tree on our side to reflect Nettie and sister being my father in law's Von Henry Dowling 1/2 sisters. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Mother of Nora/ Norma Marshall appears to be Georgia Ann Eldridge and father was Leaton L. Harrison. Let me know if this is the info you find. I cannot find deaths or grave sites for them.

|Clinton Slayton||Harry Scott|
I appreciate your input, but NONE of these men have a burial site, but some have memorials in their hometowns, and Scott's has not yet been found, if there is one. We are going to default to Jefferson Barracks in his case, which makes more sense than UNKNOWN.

I will let her know that is what you'd like for her to do. Would you be able to meet with her since there isn't really a need for me to be a middle man?

|Clinton Slayton||RE: 99% agreement|
All been tried, member does not respond, and frankly, there is no need to merge, the original markers are fine.
As to the UNKNOWNS, F A G says they have "asked her nicely" to remove them, I guess a little too nicely.
Thanks very much for being here!

|Clinton Slayton||99% agreement|
I applaud your bio notes, we are of one mind, I am trying to get F A G to remove several UNKNOWN and duplicated memorials being created by member Amanda Stauffer-Bragg, just for the reasons you cite. She wants to LINK to UNKNOWN burials just to show "her" version of lineage, and has actually requested photos for duplicate memorials that she has created despite an existing memorial with an image.
I do however, think that an UNKNOWN memorial can serve a purpose if 1) a monument names someone that cemetery records do not show as buried there, or 2) an obituary names a city location without a graveyard, since the information can be helpful in eventually finding them.
My research partner is Registrar of her DAR and Colonial Dames chapters, and we are trying to make F A G more of a citeable resource for serious genealogists, but the behavior cited above stands in the way.
