RE: obits
Marie, Thank you for offering to transfer memorials. I don't think I would find the time to do them Justice but I appreciate the offer. Take care, Lori

Thanks for the transfer. It is one of those cases where the headstone says one year of birth (1904) but the South Dakota Vital Recods and the Social Security Death Index both have another year (1905).

Thanks for all you have done.

RE: Lydia Hintz Bender
Well, we're almost there - I see you have added the photo to Albert's wife - now just need to remove it from the other Lydia Hintz - just the photo, not the whole memorial. According to the FAQ section here, the person who puts up the photo has to be the one who removes it. Even though now I'm now "maintaining" the memorial, I don't have rights to remove the photo.

RE: Lydia Hintz Bender
PS I now realized I did this backwards - I should have left Lydia Schultz attached to her husband, and unlinked her from Martin Hintz. That way her photo would have stayed with her - and then I could have made a new Lydia Hintz memorial and linked it to Martin Hintz and the other Mr. Bender - this is the first time I've tried to amend a memorial, so sorry it is making extra work for you - I'll know better next time.

RE: Lydia Hintz Bender
Yes, I had to look up how to remove a photo, and it says that only the contributor (you) can remove it. She still has the original Find A Grave Memorial# 73690151

I made a new memorial for Mrs. Albert Bender - Lydia Schultz Bender, Find A Grave Memorial# 166955682.

The photo could be added to that one instead, if you are so inclined.

Lydia Hintz Bender

I am working on getting Lydia's page updated. I cannot remove the photos attached to her memorial since I am not the one who put them up. Would you help me with this?

Thanks again for your help.

RE: Grant Transfers
I can already tell how taxing this can be...can't imagine after how long you've been doing it. Must admit I had to create drama over my great-grandmother is "not buried there" memorial. Diplomacy wasn't working .. LOL.. anyway, I appreciate all that you have done, for our Country and find a grave. Hope you had a good 4th too!

Sorry to hear that... some people don't understand that no one owns factual information. And would prefer drama...

Thank you for the transfers, though not necessary, they are appreciated. It does make edits and family linking easier :)
Happy 4th of July!

Military Ranks
Dear Dr. Karban-
First of all, thank you for your service to this Great Nation of ours and thank you for your volunteer work for findagrave. Lastly, thank you for letting me know about the ranks. Yes, I am aware of the available ranks in the "Titles" drop down box. However, not all of the ranks for the various components and time period are available for our Fallen Soldiers. For example, during World War II, there were the "in between" ranks of Technician 3, Technician 4, Technician 5. Unfortunately, some of the soldiers who held these ranks did not survive the War. On the memorials that I do I always try to list the rank for the Fallen (as I was taught by my Mom, who is a 100% disabled vet and served AD in the USAF and then a weekend warrior in the USAR). My personal feelings are that find a gravers should list the rank of our Fallen in the listings so that some us who make "Virtual" cemeteries for KIA can easily distinguish between KIA and Veterans. For now, for those that had the rank of TEC/3, Tec/4, Tec/5 get the next higher rank on my listings because, according to my research, they received the pay of the next highest rank.

No problem with the duplicate. I saw you had made the original. Haven't been doing many photo requests lately because of some health issues.
Take care.
