RE: Middle Initials I find your attitude very offensive. You seem to be concerned how I have created over 3500 memorials. I do not download memorials off of some computer program. I get in my car and travel to the cemetery. I have been to Italy, Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Iowa, North Carolina and a number of other states walking through cemeteries looking for grave sites. You will note, I have posted over 2250 photos, you don't do that from your living room.
I have always worked with other members of Find A Grave. I will transfer memorials if I am not related to the deceased and have done so many times. When someone sends me additional information I enter it promptly. If someone transfers a memorial to me, I care for if as if I had created it.
I have been into family genealogy for over twenty years. Many of the memorials that I have created are a result of this genealogy study. I find places of burial from death certificates, newspaper obits and family records.
It really does not matter to me who created a memorial, what does matter is that the data in the memorial is as complete and correct as possible. I do not create duplicate memorials. However, in this case, you, the creator of the memorial did not respond to several attempts I made to provide additional data to the memorial.
In an effort to resolve your concern, I will delete my memorial of Jefferson, if you copy the additional data from my memorial and place it in yours. All I want is to get the memorial correct.
Jefferson is the brother of my wife's great-grandfather, so I have a personal interest in his memorial being as complete as possible.
Due to your attitude, I do not care to correspond with you on this matter anymore. I will monitor the memorials, when and if you update your memorial, I will delete mine.
RE: Middle Initials This goes back 6 or 7 years ago. I sent several requests to you asking that you add information to his bio and link him to his parents. I did not get any responses to my requests. I was trying to link all of the children of Richard Lee Blackburn to his memorial, so I gave up on you and created another memorial.
RE: J. Gee Hello and no we are not back stroking the river yet! All the rain we got is causing the flooding more south of us. I had created a memorial unfortunately duplicating yours, was wanting you to see if there is any other info from my memorial for you to add to yours, which there is. Let me know when done and I will delete mine and honor yours (smile) Wishing you and Shirley a Wonderful New Year! And let me know next time you sneak down here for a visit!
RE: Good Morning to You All I would have enjoyed a few minutes visit for some quick hugs!!! BUT am so glad that you were able to come down and see your mom and sisters!!! Also glad that the actual traveling was handled good too. Always your friend....
RE: GEE oh no, you get to merge them! Hahahaaa! i don't have much success at getting that done when I try AND since you have worked so dilegently with the folks here, I figure you got some good experience - LOL!!!
