RE: Photos
Hate to bother you again. I have added 3 new sites. I am hoping to add about 50 more. I do have two questions. First how do I get the Grave site in the individual profiles in Ancestry? Secondly my pictures are all in TIFF format. So why do I not change them? Because I have downloaded two sites and they might as well have been written in Latin. I am barely computer literate. Having been raised when our phone was an 8 party line and typewriters were manual (if you had one). I have tried to contact Find a Grave to ask these questions. But alas my feeble attempts have failed. Hopefully they will see and read this missive and take mercy on us old folks. You are getting this because you are the only person that I have ever heard from at Find a Grave that was willing to help.

RE: Wolf's burials
Thank you for the information. I missed that when I entered the grave information. I thought that I had checked and could not find information for those burials. I sure I checked, but I guess I could be wrong. I had looked for some of those names as they pertain to my own tree.

I have to think about this, I don't want to be responsible for bad info on line. I may end up deleting the entries. However if folks do not use Find A Grave and pick up the information, as I did, out of library books they will still be wrong.

RE: Wolf's burials
I am wondering if perhaps the better solution is to leave the records but amend them to point out that those interred have been moved. The written record is still out there and someone (me) could make the
mistake as I did.

RE: Photos
Thank you so much. I have quite a few people that I want to provide with a memorial. I will take your advice and read the instructions closely. I have asked if they could include pictures from TIF which will make it easier for me to add. I live in Western, Montana if you ever need someone to check a site I will be happy to help even Northern Idaho.

Thanks again

Linda,

It appears that either the graves have been moved or the written record is wrong. I recorded in Find A Grave the burials of Hannah, Katherine, Mathias and Catherine Wolf. I do not know what the relationship is between the names. The information came from Volume II, Franklin County Ohio Cemeteries, Madison Township, compiled by the Franklin County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, April 1981. That information the society recorded came from the History of Madison Township, Page 455.

I agree that the information is duplicated in both cemeteries for the names listed above. I do not know at this point how to reconcile the differences unless we can request someone to walk one or the other cemetery to see if there is headstones.

RE: Photos
Thank you for replying. A little knowledge is dangerous and I fit that category. I do not know how I got Robert instead of Alfred. I am Robert, Alfred was my Great Grandfather.
According to his death certificate his parents were Thomas Wolf and Catherine Savage of New Jersey. I have not been able, after lots of searching, to find any further info. I would not know how to correct my mistake. Any help will be appreciated or if you would make the correction I would appreciate it. I hate it when I make a mistake as it takes ten times longer to correct than to make. The 'Find A Grave" program has been extremely helpful in my genealogy efforts. I am trying to get as much done as possible so my children, grand children etc. will have a viable history of their ancestors.
Thank you again
Bob Wolf

You're very welcome. My mother and I were taking pictures of all of our relatives headstones today, and I just happened to notice that you had requested one I had taken a picture of. Are you related to her?

RE: reply to
I saw the program and I'll ask them about it. The list is more recent that her death so I don't know why she isn't on it. There is a Daniel on the list so maybe she is near him. I will check around Daniel when I'm out there again.

Primum non nocere (first, do no harm)... it may be better not to do something, or even to do nothing, than to risk causing more harm than good.
Words to live by. Political correctness sometimes goes a little too far. I know I caused no harm...can you say the same?

RE: grave photos
Wow. I'm astonished that you would report military seals of our service members as being inappropriate to add to their memorials. I'm sure the families of these service members who enjoyed the plaques as part of their memorials will be equally upset. I've been photographing over 30,000 photos at Doyle and added these seals to each one. Each time I do it takes twice as long, but I do it because it is appreciated by the folks looking for their family members. I also photograph the markers of "orphans"...service men and women who have been forgotten or abandoned on the shelves of funeral homes and I honor them by placing the military seals, each designated to their individual branch of the military on the memorials with their markers. If you look deep into your heart, you will find that this is a labor of love and respect for all who served. I guess you'll be happy to know that all the seals have now been removed thanks to your "efforts".

memorials
Just want you to know how much I appreciate your stand on memorials mentioned in your bio and links.

I have begun the process of sending my memorials to Find a Grave. I am so weary of those that accumulate memorials so they can use them as "family tree" it doesn't work, because every member of the family cannot "own" the memorial. My kick at the can is that Find a Grave memorials are there for the purpose of memorializing, not gathering, related or not. The new edit system is perfect, and I just do not understand why "owning" any memorial makes any sense. I don't think the originator of Find a Grave meant this as the mission; but it took me a while to see the light! I do not mean that one has to transfer to Find a Grave, but it works for me. There are many ways to genealogically record family, and reference the Find a Grave number.

RE: grave photos
Thanks for your note. Yes, the military seals that I add to the memorials are located in the ceremonial section of BG Doyle cemetery. I have never had anyone complain about the addition of these seals; in fact, most welcome the addition to the memorials. Warm regards.

RE: Carter lines in Charlton Co, GA
Thanks for the information and responding about Davis. Your research is quite thorough. I was wondering if you have a public family tree at ancestry.com on Malachi's family. I feel confident that your data would be useful in searching for JS family since the ydna indicates a relationship. Nieca

Davis E. Thompson
I appreciate all the effort and information you have contributed to this site. You have been a tremendous help to me in tracing Thompson families in Ga and Fl.

I am a descendent of Jonathan Seth and Narcissus Thompson of Clinch Co., GA. I noticed you had placed a flower on the memorial of Davis E. Thompson 54675172. I was hoping you could share some insight into his family line. He is linked at Find A Grave and in many ancestry trees to the above family. There were at least two Davis Thompson males born in GA around 1861/62. One the son of JS and the other the son of Guy Thompson and wife, Zerua (many spellings in census records).
I have no source information to solidly link Davis E. to either family. My only hint is that he lists his father's birthplace as Connecticut. The Guy Thompson family originated in Connecticut. Any info you would be willing to share would be much appreciated.

We recently received the YDNA results of a male descendent of JS from FamilyTree. Based on your information at the Malachi memorial, we are in the same subset and distantly related.

Best wishes, Nieca Sharrard 48038284
