We are all on an honor system when we became a contributor on Find A Grave. Please try to abide by that!

I have been getting many inaccurate requests to make changes to the memorials that I manage. While I do love getting information, I try to verify it is correct before I honor that request. At times I will ask for sources as to where the information came from so if asked please don't be offended.

Also I am not comfortable and will not add private information such as reasons for adoption or causes of death. That is to personal and only their immediate family needs to know such information.

**************************************************
Known Burials verses Unknown Burials: Search for the cemetery if adding a memorial or obituaries from a newspaper clipping. Can't find it right away, please follow-up. There have been way to many contributors that have burial unknowns and are now placing their memorials into a known cemetery and stating theirs were there first. The Guidelines/Rules state you have up to 30 days after the date of death to place your memorial into the correct burial location.

Please, do not move your Burial Unknown or a memorial from an incorrect cemetery into the correct cemetery based on my correctly placed memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. I will not delete any of my memorials anymore, I will submit them for merge and let Find A Grave decide who's was placed correctly first.

Find A Grave states on duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location.

**************************************************
Duplicates: I have taken stewardship of some of IWPP's memorials. I am currently working on them. If you find a memorial that has been duplicated please let me know and I will get it deleted as soon as possible.

**************************************************
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!
