Please check the edit tab on your FindaGrave contributor page. That's the one you can get by logging onto FindaGrave and clicking on "Contributor Tools" on the left side of the page, followed by clicking on the "edits" tab at the top of the page.

FindaGrave has changed the way we get requests for changes and additions to our memorials. On the edit tab of your contributor page you should find "edits sent to me that I need to review".

You should find one request from me on that edit listing. I would appreciate your reviewing these requests and if you agree, all you have to do is go to the bottom of the list and approve the changes. All the requested changes will then be made automatically if you approve.

Thanks for all your help.

Glynn White Memorial
You created a duplicate cemetery when you made this memorial. There is already a Campground Cemetery in Woodville on FindaGrave with over 1,000 memorials.

Also, you created a duplicate memorial for Glynn White. There is already one created several years ago in the correct large cemetery. Up-to-date information has already been added to includes Glynn's obituary.

Your duplicate memorial:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=125881389

Please delete this later memorial and I will ask FindaGrave to delete this duplicate cemetery. In the future please check before creating these duplicates. They will only confuse future family researchers.

Margaret I just added a copy of a name rubbing of Jimmy I received from the Vietnam Memorial recently. Somehow his name was not on our VFW Post Memorial Day list and I ran across his Veterans Marker at the Jackson Cemetery while taking photos for find a grave.

Duplicates
I have sent a few SACs (aka Suggest A Correction emails) on your duplicate memorials and the one triplicate memorial. Why won't you address them? This site does not allow duplicates so you really need to delete them. When a SAC is not addressed within 30 days, the sender can submit the email to Admins to be addressed. When I do that, I note the contributor is "uncooperative".

Re: Teresa Dyanne Landry
Hi Margaret
I entered the picture on her memorial and ask for a name correction. I did look up the social security death records and it has her name spelled the same as the tombstone. Future generations will be looking at this and will have a hard time finding their ancestor if the name is not spelled correctly. What you could do is correct the name on the memorial and in the note section you could let people know that the spelling was different. Thanks for you time. Janet

Deb
Duplications
Hi Margaret,
I see you are having issues with duplication problems and people asking for you to delete the duplicated names.

Perhaps the easiest way for you to understand what is happening is for you to look at the list of 147 names you have made pgs for. By checking your list of names you will see the ones that you have made to many pgs for. You can have only 1 pg for a person, anything else is considered a duplication.

When I check your list of 147 names I see numerous ones that are duplicated, even some that are triplicated.

Some of the most common causes for duplications can be (1) if the enter key is hit more than once the Find A Grave system will spawn a duplicated entry, this happens to a lot of people (2) misspelled names, this also happens a lot (3) not checking ahead of time to see if the name was previously entered by someone else (4) not knowing for certain which cemetery burial was in and then moving it later without checking to see if it was already there.

The other members who have told you about your duplications are just trying to help you clean up and straighten out your entries, the requests are made to help not criticize. Most of us here on Find A Grave try to help each other. Its all about getting the info as correct as possible for future generations of researchers.

Basically if you will just look at your list of names first, then compare the dates on each name and you will see the ones duplicated. Just combine the info onto one pg and delete the rest. When there is a tombstone photo on a name, keep that pg and place the info onto it but delete the others with no photos.

If you need help in figuring all this out, just ask one of us, we'll be glad to help you!

Please remove this person and one other person named "Rash" from this African American cemetery named ANTIOCH. Unless you can prove that these people belong there, please remove them immediately.

As I've reiterated to you before, there are 2 Antioch Cemeteries in San Augustine, one Caucasian and one African America.

2ND REQUEST. On August 5, 2009 you added this person to the African American cemetery named Antioch. I requested that you remove this person because he does not belong there. TO DATE, this person remains on the list. There is more than 1 Antioch Cemetery, a Caucasian cemetery and an African American cemetery. I am trying to find out from the administrators of FIND-A-GRAVE if they can remove this person since I have not received a response from you nor have you removed this name. If you have proof that this person belongs in this African American cemetery, send it to me.
