Bio and Links
Bio Photo 04/19/2014...I will be on Findagrave for a limited time for about a month. I am helping my daughter set up her homestead and have no electric. Since I will only be using my cell phone I will process any edits via the new edit features but will not review sac requests through email until I get back.

Hello Fellow Gravers!!!

I am working with a wonderful group of volunteers called IWPP (International Wargraves Photography Project). What we are doing is cross-checking the uploads and correcting any errors and duplicates made on National Cemeteries. This is a major ongoing project and if you can find time to help assist us it would be greatly appreciated.

National Cemeteries completed as of 2013:
Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery Cross County, Arkansas
CNMI Veterans Cemetery Marpi, Saipan
Delaware Veteran Memorial Cemetery New Castle County, DE
Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery Sussex County, DE
Fort Custer National Cemetery Kalamazoo County, MI

National Cemeteries currently being Reviewed:
Alabama National Cemetery Shelby County, AL
Brig. Gen. Wm. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery Burlington County, N.J.
Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery San Diego County, CA
Fort Snelling National Cemetery Minneapolis, Minnesota
Golden Gate National Cemetery, San Mateo County, CA
Long Island National Cemetery, Suffolk County, NY
Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery Knox County, TN
Willamette National Cemetery Multnomah County, OR
Suggestions & Corrections: Please make sure your Memorial # is listed along with an explanation. If your correspondence is RUDE in any way, it will be ignored. This site was created to help others, not to criticize, harass or bully. Be kind to your fellow volunteers, since we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others on the amazing website!

If your correction is not completed within a couple of days do not send a second request. Find A Grave has a thirty day policy to have your corrections honored and as the Guidelines state Have Patience it will get done.
Transfers: I have had many contributors asking to have the same memorial transferred to them. We cannot please everyone so I am only adhering to the four generation rule (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). As the guidelines state the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it. A wonderful way to gather all your ancestors together and achieve that goal is by setting up virtual a cemetery.

I will not transfer bulk surname requests. No exceptions so please do not ask.

If you do not want the memorial transferred but have accurate information to add, I will be more than happy to add it and credit you with the information.

Happy Hunting!

Your Profile page
Quite by chance I found your Profile page and want to congratulate you on the content.

I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

RE: Erie Street Cemetery
Hi Cindy,
Being a long standing member of Find A Grave I am well aware of the rules regarding duplications. Alhough I know that occasionally duplicates happen - I did a spot check of Erie Street and the first three duplicates I found were NOT mine. I added Henry Wall with photo in 2004. The duplicate was added in 2013. I added George Abel with photo in 2004. the duplicate was added in 2012. I added Orison Abell with photo in 2004, the duplicate was added in 2012. If you find a one of my entries that is truly the duplicate, please send it and I will delete. Otherwise, please contact the contributor who has duplicated my entries.

Thanks so much! I sure do appreciate it!

Thanks...if you find more like that let me know and any WWII duplicates let me know. I see you reviewing Golden Gate...I suspect many misspellings of WWII KIA's there.
