James Parkhill & Temperance Kelsey Higgins
I appreciate all the work you have done on the Higgins family. Wow!

I have one correction however. James Parkhill (Memorial #123834472). You list 2 spouses. One of the spouses, Temperance E. Higgins (1849-1866) (Memorial # 65245139) is the incorrect Temperance. Temperence E Higgins never married. She was 17 at death. I believe you have inadvertently attached the wrong Temperance to him. The correct one is Temperance Kelsey Parkhill (1756-1831) (Memorial #20184288).

I have requested an edit through Find A Grave, but thought I would give you a head's up.

Hope this helps.

RE: Harvey Clark parents
Someone asked me to transfer this person to them, adding a comment that another Clark relative was available too.

Most of the Clark relatives just appeared on my site. I informed him that I had no contact with them and he could keep the CLark relatives.

If you are Janet, they are yours now. Take good care of them.

Hi Janet,
I know you are off adventuring so definitely don't expect a reply, just wanted to give you a heads up that I got a spam email from you. Subject line "From: Janet Muff". Didn't open it, but suspect you have been hacked/people have managed to get into your account to send spam.

RE: Find-a-grave Edits
Have a wonderful vacation and hope you are somewhere warm. I don't think any of those people are in a hurry ;-) Thanks for all your work!

RE: Photographs
I do not plan to visit the cemetery for photos...another Find A Grave member I have worked closely with has expressed an interest but their list of to do's is long so if you would like to followup on this one this summer I'm sure they would not mind.
I will continue to send edits but will keep an excel spreadsheet of what I send you so you can track them, check them and change them as you wish. Will send you the spreadsheet when you are available. Have deleted your message to insure your privacy. Enjoy your adventure.

I must say in almost 13 years on this site I have never met such a person. I contacted findagrave. Do not contact me further.

page 486. That is Cyrell's parents. I will contact Findagrave. This is my family. Not related to you I imagine.

Could I please have a tranfer for Cyrell 70214070 to me Emma 46603013? He is the oldest brother of my Great Great Grandfather Harvey Bacon. Thank you for the time you took to set up this memorial for my family and for all the work you do on findagrave.

John Whitmarsh Bishop and Emma

You are welcome! I cannot find any indication that they are in Cavendish either except for the stone. I have looked at death certs. It prob is unlikely they would have put them there. I will leave it on seeing the stone is there.

Hi Janet,

Thank you for taking a great photo of the marker of my 3rd great grand aunt Lydia Morgan (86322128) and her husband.

May I have your permission to us a copy of the photo in my family tree? I will give you proper credit for taking the photo in the caption underneath the photo.

Thanks for considering this.

RE: Duplicate Memorials
No problem. I'm just happy the information is correct now.

RE: Duplicate Memorials
Thanks for letting me know. It wouldn't be the first time the old newspapers were wrong about the place of burial. I'll delete mine. I've already deleted the memorial for Clara Burdish (infant daughter of Richard and Mary), who also had a newspaper article stating she was buried in St. Mary's cemetery.

Koory updates--and an appreciation for your bio
First, thank you for the Koory updates. These memorials are so much better because of volunteers who help each other.
Second, having experienced a scolding, growling request and response from someone not anywhere close to the 4-generation transfer request (I had done SIGNIFICANT work in searching National Archives and crafting a bio), I appreciated reading the comments you put in your profile.
Again, your time and thoughtfulness in sending the Edits is valued by me.

I am curious about this internment as you posted 2 different pictures and they don't reference the same person. The bottom one has 'S' for middle name and the death date does not match.

Added by Erik & Karen on Jan 22, 2015 4:38 AM

RE: The Kelleys
I'm thrilled that this edit method has worked out. I've used it for the past few days...and so good. Plus contributor's have e-mailed me with any additional information that they would like me to include. As you've said people easily have a reference/contributor's number for the additions on the memorial it's a win-win situation!!

Thanks so much for e-mailing me with your thoughts. As always good luck with your genealogy,

RE: The Kelleys
It was never my intention to cause extra work for contributors who spend so much time and effort doing excellent research of their information/taking gravestone photos etc. The only problem I had was adding (hopefully) correct information and documenting who provided it.

I realize that it is my responsibility to do "due diligence" on edits and I should research all information that I am provided. That being said...when I get 30+ edits each and every day (and we do have other lives besides Find A Grave) was impossible to try and thoroughly research everyone's individual edit information. Do I look on Ancestry/the Hale records/the Barbour records/a local historical society/another genealogy website etc?? I even thought about no longer being a part of Find A Grave or occasionally inputting memorial pages.

But...I woke up this morning at 6am with a revelation and a solution to the edit issue. I can just take the 30+ edits as they come every day and go to the indicated memorial page and add the contributor's number as providing that information. It is more work for me either way...but this new way will "annoy" contributors less and make it easier for them to provide links to parents/birth dates/maiden names/correct spellings of last names etc....and not require them to look at my contributor's page and then send an "additions/corrections" edit.

Please don't think that I decided on my original edit declines without many sleepless nights on my part but I think that this new solution will solve the "problem".

Again I am so sorry that this caused you any additional time/research,

Added by Sara on Jan 19, 2015 6:11 AM

RE: The Kelleys
Absolutely I will correct any name discrepancies ...just send me a correction on the edit button...and then the "additions and corrections" tab and I will change the name. I just...right or wrong...decline all the edits I receive...over 30 yesterday...and don't look at them one by one to see if they are possibly correct.
It would be so much easier if Find A Grave would add the contributor's number with any edits so that others know how to reach them and where they got that information.
Thanks for your understanding,

Added by Sara on Jan 18, 2015 1:45 PM

RE: Oliver Bogue
The only reason that I said "your date conflicts with my data" is because none of the "decline this edit" reasons are any good to explain why I don't accept edits any I just pick the first one. So sorry for any confusion!!

Again the edit way doesn't put the contributor's name on the memorial page...and I have gotten some false information. I have had people ask me where I got the information from...and I don't know. I had over 30 edits today...and I can't possibly research every/all things.

So I came up with this method...we'll see if it works. Send me an edit...then go to the "additions/corrections" tab and include your source and contributor's number and I'll include it on the memorial page so people know who to contact with any questions.
