Thanks for the suggestion, but I cannot find anything in the naming conventions provided by FG that states only one nickname can be included. It is singular, but so is the term middle name, and I know plenty of people who have more than one middle name. Also, in the two memorials you mentioned, none of the multiple middle names was more commonly used than another. Singling out one would be misleading and incorrect. Maybe you can show me in the FAGs where it states that only one nickname can be inserted. I can't find it.

RE: Baxter
Thanks for the reply....just curious. I don't expand that far out unless I am related to that family....that is cool for all the time you put into it!!!!

Frances Baxter
I have her name that way per family request because everyone knew her as Elizabeth....

I follow the RULES but sometimes just being nice to the family is more important to me than being so rigid and inflexible. I take a lot of photos and if a family member wants a transfer or a suggestion, I try to go along with it. It makes it so much easier to volunteer that way.

Thanks for your work! Just curious as to how you came across this "tweek" of rules since you appear to live no where near me and my memorial does't appear to be related to what you have.....

RE: Naming conventions
It tells you what TO submit in the name fields. Findagrave told me to forward any edits that are not corrected and they will correct them. Numbers have nothing to do with the name of the person, name fields are for names, initials or Unknown (adult, etc) which is what people use for searching.

Memorial 5681260 and duplicate 5681265
Hi, Thanks for making me aware of the duplication. My cousin, who has passed away created both memorials and Find A Grave will not let me delete one. I tried clicking on the contact Find A Grave link but it does not work for me. Do you have an email for them or any other suggestions to how I can correct this problem. Thanks for your help, Sher

Anna Louise Chapin Duplicate Memorials
Thank you. I will combine the two that are duplicates and then delete the newer of the two. The other (74385737) is for a different Anna Louise Chapin. The two women with the same name are from the same extended family, but have different fathers. One is the daughter of Levi Chapin. The other (74385737) is the daughter of Philip E. Chapin. Levi was the son of Philip Chapin (not to be confused with P.E. Chapin who was the son of Hermon Chapin, the brother of Levi's father Philip). I hope I conveyed that clearly.

RE: McCulley headstone photo
In the rules set down by find a grave, it is better not to touch the headstone or clean it.

As for my own protection, I do not carry a bag only a little feather duster and camera. I usually replace the flowers and flags that have fallen out of the urns but other than that I try not to touch them.

I have gained quite an education about the person just by reading the headstone and what has been added to find a grave. It is interesting, I have found some where one has a long obit and yet doesn't mention the other person on the headstone at all! In fact, hasn't been put in find a grave.

The saddest are the infants who only made it that day and there are a set of twins that lived only a day.
My most fun is a double headstone where the "husband" and "wife" are more than 30 years apart in age! Hope it was a daughter but I don't know ---
Sincerely Marcia

RE: James Riley, again
Hello! Wow. Thanks for the quick reply. There is already a memorial in Parris-Riley Cemetery for their son, James (1837-1911). I sent an edit request to the memorial owner to link him to Joseph & Caroline. Unless there was a 2nd son named James? I'm just getting into this line so I am still uncovering information. Here is the link to the other memorial if you are curious:

We see that you mention McDonalds and Hills, also ancestors of my wife. Her mother was a Reynolds. We visit Wirmingham Cem. annually for Decoration Day. Wife Judy has ancestors in three or four cemeteries in Overton Co. Nice day to you.

RE: Impending Event
You're lucky - ours are about 100 miles (better than the 600 miles when we were in TN)but we still don't see them often enough - maybe 3-4 times a year (sigh). Everybody's just so darn busy, and of course we're old & crappy & have no life :)
Have fun!

RE: C R Wright
His second wife is buried in the same cemetery where he is, as far as I can tell. He died in 1918 and she died in 1940.

Thank you for the information. A family member misguided me on his location. I will be in contact with the creator of the original memorial. Thanks again!

Thank you for advice about uploading photos under type. I'm afraid I got a bit overzealous. Lol! I will be correcting them, thankfully, I haven't done too many!

I was totally unaware there were two memorials for Russ. I only created one so I'm at a loss as to why two showed up. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. How did you happen to catch it?
