Bio and Links
Bio Photo A special person, a special face, someone we loved and cannot replace. Never selfish, always kind, these are the memories they leave behind ~~~ unknown

Like a lot of members I started with FindaGrave looking for my ancestors to preserve their memories for future generations. I cannot begin to tell you how Thankful 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. So since then I have been working with a wonderful group of volunteers and the International Wargraves Photography Project adding and editing veteran memorials to the National Cemeteries.

Currently I am working on Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery checking and cross checking every name for errors and or duplicates and sending requests for corrections when needed.

I am also helping FindaGrave contributor Tom Brocher (#47674416) to upload headstone photos for Golden Gate National Cemetery.
**********************************************
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.

Also lately I have had too many inaccurate requests to make changes to the memorials that I manage and it is getting very frustrating. While I do love getting information, I verify it is correct before I honor that request whether it is received by SAC or the new edit feature. If you have your message and email address disabled I cannot respond back to you to let you know of the inaccuracies. Please do not expect me to make any changes that you asking if you are not going to give me the courtesy to notify you so I will have no choice but to delete the SAC and or decline the request in the edit feature.
**********************************************
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.
----
Lastly

I don't always send a thank you so I would like to give a SINCERE "Thank You" to all the contributors and photographers for all that you have done for me and for FindaGrave. It really means a lot.

Happy Hunting!

You seem to know FAG rules maybe you can help me
Someone here, a member of Find A Grave has been harrassing me over a memorial. The girl is related but not close enough to be direct line. I have tried everything to make her stop but she continues. This has been going on for over a year.

What can I do?

Johnson's Island Cem.
I am researching the lives of the soldiers who died and are now buried on Johnson's Island. Lt. James C. Holt is buried on the Island. He is reported to have had a brother G. W. Holt (I believe his first name is George). You mention the G. W. Holt was also a soldier, capturer and died while in a prison camp. Any idea's where he may be buried ??

Find a Grave generally doesn't list all the townships so maybe it can be added in the bio section?

Thank you for the cemetery tip for Private Borges, which has now been changed. As you may have noticed, this memorial was transferred to me, so I went with the cemetery of the original set up, not knowing it was incorrect. Thanks again!
