|Diane Gravlee||RE: Howard & Nannie White graves|
Thanks for your helpful suggestions. I wasn't sure how fast the current manager would make the change to include the plot info, but I will go ahead and try that first. Once I get the note it has been accepted, I'll redo the photo request and do it for all three. Your comments that some people don't see the notes is quite correct or they want the credit, so I shall follow your guidelines. Thanks.

I should have also mentioned that a son, Howard White Jr. may be buried in the same plot area as his parents. Please look for him too.

I have noted your comments in regard to having a plot location for burials in the Macon Memorial Park. I put in a request for Howard & Nannie White's grave marker photo last November and put the location in the "note" section because I don't manage their memorials. Are you still doing photos there? If so, they are in Section D, Lot 226. I didn't know if this is enough info to find their burial site? Diane

|J. Edward Ross||Periods|
As is stated earlier. I will not be adding a period to any initials (first or middle).
I've read the recent FAQ changes and I did NOT see the word "required," as you stated. Nor did I see the word "retroactive." I have created over 50,000 memorials and I will NOT be retroactively adding periods.
There are three very good reasons for this...
First: Normal data entry conventions for databases is to enter initials without periods because the search and display feature should add periods and formatting when appropriate. This is convention for every database I have ever worked with.
Second: I have a friend who's first and middle names are simply the letters O and V, without a period. He answers to "Oh-vee" and takes offence when someone "assumes" then adds a period to his name.
Third and most convincing to me: The dropdown menus for prefixes and suffixes do NOT include a period. Why would they expect us to use one convention and they use a different convention?
I sent an e-mail to the Find A Grave staff two weeks ago asking for clarification. They have not replied. Until I hear otherwise I will continue entering initials without a period as I have for the last 50,000 memorials and I will NOT be retroactively editing my pre-exist memorials, PERIOD.
If you feel the need to continue this conversation, I will not be offended. Also, I do value your opinion. However, if we need to continue, please send your response via e-mail. I prefer not to use the message feature provided by Find A Grave for longer conversations.

Charles Dame is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery, not Cave Hill National. Cora is not listed in either record, but may well be buried next to Charles. If you'll correct the request I'll be glad to get the photos for you.

There are 2 entries for this cemetery in Centerville, Georgia--Centerville Baptist Church Cemetery and Centerville Cemetery. I have just spent some time in that cemetery today and spoke with the "guardian of the graves," Jason Leverette. The cemetery is now called First Baptist Church Cemetery (I suppose to avoid confusion with others of the same name, you could add Centerville at the end). At one time, the back side of the cemetery was a family cemetery, Bassett Cemetery; it was located next to a community cemetery called Centerville Cemetery. This was all before First Baptist Church was built, but when it was, the two cemeteries were deeded to the church and they became part of the First Baptist Church Cemetery, along with all the new graves in the front part of the cemetery. I don't know how to get the name of the cemetery corrected in Find-A-Grave--do you? Since you have done so much work on this cemetery, I thought you might be able to help. If you will let me know, I would appreciate it. Thanks. Irene (LadyG8r924)

FYI, Looking at this memorial it is clearly showing the memorial as a memorial only and not the grave site. For now I am removing this one.

|Julie Ballard||Harold Davidson|
Thank you for the information about a possible duplicate page for Harold Davidson at Calvary Cemetery in Louisville. I will work with the creator of the other memorial page to determine if these are indeed duplicates or two different people and we'll decide how to best proceed. There is a discrepancy of birth dates.

|Bill Lee, The Baseball Undertaker||Re Emma Davidson|
I generally try to not duplicate entries made by others, but I may have screwed up this time. However, I don't think so. First - I believe Emma is in the Cave Hill Cemetery, not the Cave Hill National Cemetery, which happens to be adjoining. But, if I happen to be wrong I will gladly remove my entry. Second - Before I remove my entry, Emma's middle name and the link to her husband must be put on her memorial. It might also be nice if he would move himself over to the other cemetery, as well! Many thanks for all that you do.

You requested more information for Walter and Maude Preston's grave sites at Macon Memorial Park. They are buried in Section T, Lot 5. The cemetery office said you can pick up a map if you need to. Thank you for taking these pictures for me!
