RE: Photos
If you go to the home page of either Julia or Shamrocks you can click on the photos (not the volunteer ones).

Then choose from the pull down menu in the upper right corner that says All Names. Choose Added in last 24 hours.

Then you can see the photos that have been added in the last 24 hours. You can also choose 7 days or 30 days.

Julia is taking photos of the rows when she fulfills a photo request. So, if a photo request is in Section XXXIII, Row C she usually takes photos around the stone that was requested. Covers a lot more ground that way and takes a lot more photos instead of traversing around to various sections. So, she is adding a lot of photos that are not photo requests which is a good use of her time.

RE: Requests filled
Julia probably needs a break for a while. She was taking a lot of photos plus the time to upload them.

Making certain I understand your message:

Shamrocks says office has no record
126200997
95152539

Does this mean the two memorial numbers are ones that the office has no record of?

RE: West Point Photos
For 123709012 there could have been a mix up with:

Find A Grave Memorial# 123709232

which had a photo posted today.

I took photos for FindAGrave for a few afternoons when traveling a few years ago. I found it exhausting so I have great admiration for Julia!

I use HTML coding below which I have saved in a Word document:



I put in the number: 130716314 in the FindAGrave website and then copy the address as below.

See This for more detail which seems more complicated than it is:

How do I add a link from one memorial to another?
In order to create a link in the biography of one memorial to someone else's memorial (such as the person's spouse or parent), you will need to use a bit of HTML code. It's hard to put into words, so here is an example (from Johnny Carson's biography which has a link to Red Skelton's memorial page): Pioneering Television Legend, Comic, Host. Carson began his entertainment career in radio but quickly moved to television. He moved to Hollywood to become a writer for "The Red Skelton Show."

In the biography, you would need to type
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">Name< /a>

where XXXXXXX is the GRid number of the memorial you want to link. The GRid is a unique id for each memorial and as such is the only thing within the entire URL that must be included. The "Name" is what will show up on the screen as a link.

You will need to remove the space between < and a at the beginning as well as the space between the < and / at the end. The spaces were added here to actually show you the code.

You can also use "Add relationship links" on the memorial page. You can add the links to father, mother, and multiple spouses. Adding this information will automatically post the reverse information to the linked memorial as well.

RE: Done
93749265 Note that tombstone found at different location

That is because the Nationwide Grave Locator uses SECTION R SITE 41. All the sections and sites have been assigned new identifiers so the Nationwide Grave Locator section/site information is meaningless.

I noticed you deleted your memorial page for him.

His place of interment is here:

Burial:
Evergreen Municipal Cemetery
Sanford
Seminole County
Florida, USA

You can make a memorial for him in this cemetery. Yours was the only one for him.

I did notice. That's really sweet of you to help with requests. I've been going row by row when I can get to cemetery.

RE: Photos to request
Last 7 days she has added 167 photos.

Last 30 days 292 photos.

I think she is trying to cover as much ground as she can before the weather gets too cold.

RE: Photos to request
Julia is going row by row taking photos (what some FindAGrave contributors call mowing the rows). She has added at least 70 photos this week, but not all of them were for photo requests.
