Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lately I have had too many inaccurate requests to make changes to the memorials that I manage. While I do love getting information, I verify it is correct before I honor that request. At times I do ask for sources as to where the information came from so please don't be offended if asked. Also if you have your message and email address disabled so I cannot respond back to you to let you know of the inaccuracies, please do not expect me to make any changes that you are asking. I will have no choice but to delete the SAC and or decline the request in the edit feature.

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. and Multiple Memorials. Based on these guidelines the memorial added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown or updated and placed in the known cemetery will be deleted regardless of the date that the memorial was added.

Photos: I am happy to share my photos. Please feel free to use them.

Duplicates: I have taken stewardship of some of IWPP's memorials. When his files were uploaded from a spreadsheet, existing memorials were missing information, so FindaGrave did not see his as duplications and they were added. 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 so 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.

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!
