Bio and Links
Bio Photo Like a lot of members I started with FindaGrave looking for my ancestors to preserve memories for future generations. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for all the wonderful people that went out of their way to help me in fulfilling my quest. So I wanted to pay it forward and I found the best way I could do that is to work with veterans and their families. They have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom and as a spouse of a NAVY veteran this is the least I could do. Since then I have been working with a wonderful group of volunteers adding and editing veteran memorials to the National Cemeteries.

Known Burials verses Unknown Burials: Find a Grave guidelines clearly states a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location and the final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days. Based on these guidelines the memorial added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the date that the memorial was added.

Photos: I am happy to share my photographs without copyright. No credit needs to be noted.

Duplicates: I have taken over stewardship of some of IWPP memorials and when his files were uploaded from the spreadsheet they did not match the existing memorials so FindaGrave did not see them as duplicates. If you come across one PLEASE do not use the Message Posts use the edit features to let me be aware of them.

There are also many other situations as to why or how duplicates happen but they should always try to be avoided. The only exception would be for Famous Memorials and Cenotaphs.

Edits: Please submit all edits tab of the memorial. Again please do not use the Message Posts for any changes or corrections. At times I do ask for sources as to where the information came from so please don't be offended if asked.

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 a virtual cemetery.

I would like to thank all contributors and photographers for all that you have done for me and for FindaGrave. You are very much appreciated!

Have Fun and Happy Hunting!

William Jesse Luna question
I see your memorial #33468747 for Major William Jesse Luna (1926-1987). Robert Stauffer also has a memorial for a William Jesse Luna (1926-1987) #12532877. Might they be for the same person?

Jobez Alen (#123392272)
This seems to be the same person as Jabez Allen (#126948116). Maybe you could ask for a merger of the two memorials?

RE: Sadler and Saenz photo requests
Actually we enjoyed it as well, there was a clerical error on Edith's plot information and we were able to correct that for the cemetery office. And it was a beautiful day.
