I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.|
On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

|Pamela Johnson Mortensen||Ina - Nina - Wallin|
Chris, perhaps you could help me understand what you wish to edit on Ina's memorial...her first name? While she was indeed known as Nina at certain times of her life, I have her mother's family Bible, wherein her given name is Ina. She also acknowledged 'Ina" as her legal name on voter registrations, and the California Death Index has her as Ina, as well. I have indicated "Nina' on her bio, as well as a short marriage that doesn't seem nec to add to her long list of names already. What is your thinking here?
|Nancy Lane||Theresa Ullmann|
Well, you're partially right about the search part if someone is searching by middle name, but if you do a search by maiden name in Noble Co., Ohio, her name appears at the top of the list! A search of Find A Grave by Unger OR Ullmann also reveals her memorial! I appreciate your "educating me" about this...but do you have nothing better to do than look for periods and quotation marks?
|Nancy Lane||Theresa "Emeline" Unger|
You want me to remove my quotes around her middle name when that is the name she went by??? (I won't do that because if I designate Emeline as her nickname, it will appear as Theresa Emeline "Emeline" Unger!)
|Paul Schonstrom||RE:' VS "|
Sorry - could you provide a link or memorial number as an example regarding your comment? Otherwise, I have absolutely zero point of reference about which you are writing.
Thanks very much for messaging me over this issue. I am fully aware of the problem and for unknown reasons the connection at this end has been rather dodgy (in that some keys and letters are accepted and others just are not). It is for this reason I have ceased doing anything until such issues are sorted.
It was not an oversight and I apologise if it caused you personal issues.

|Don Atwell||RE: And...|
You apparently don't have anything else better to do. I made the memorials, I actually attended both of the funerals and I will continue to make my own edits
|Don Atwell||RE: And...|
Originally these memorials were made they were correct and then F.G. made changes and sometimes as in these incidents the nickname became maiden names. They have been corrected and so what is your problem?
|Kevin Haynes||Gerald Bommarito|
It wasnt an intentional error it was a computer glinch, so it waasn't a duplicate and it wasnt incomplete as I was the contributor for the other as well.
|James (Jim) F. Kelly||Oops|
Thanks for catching these. Never had that before.
I am not using quotes in the name field. I am putting in CHILD or BABY in the nickname field, and Find A Grave puts quotes around them.
