Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT send a request for me to link a memorial to yours if your memorial is "burial unknown".

I have been doing gene research for about five years and have an extensive tree on Ancestry.com. My kin come mainly from the Northeast, Canada, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am a Maker, a Parker, a Harvey, a Heath and a Kemp. I have extensive roots in Cutler, ME and Merrimack, NH.

I love wandering old places and especially graveyards. One's name may never been written previously or since, one's life never recorded other than the engraving on the stone.

"To gather up the records of the past and present, and faithfully transmit them to the future, is a duty which one generation owes to another." - The Rev Ira C Tyson, Bedford, NH 1885

Many of the memorials I have created are for family members, but once I get to a graveyard I photograph many stones and add them here as well. I am thorough and link memorials when the data is on the stone or if I have uncovered it in my personal research. I do not see these memorials as my property and will gladly transfer non-relatives to anyone with more info, a relationship, or more care. I will gladly and quickly make changes/additions/link relations upon request also.

Please feel free to use my pics without request as you wish. I took them for you! My camera takes awesome pics that I need to shrink in order to upload them to findagrave; if you would like a copy of the better pic emailed to you please ask - it really tickles me to find a pic someone has been looking for.

Many other contributors are playing a numbers game and I think they have lost sight of the purpose: documentation. If you are too busy to make requested changes in order to properly document one's LIFE, if you enter the bare minimum of info when more data is readily available, if it is all about entering one more name, please be gracious when one asks for a transferal of the memorial. Nobody is going to list how many memorials you created on YOUR memorial! 100 thorough, family-linked memorials are better than 126,000 half-assed name listings with death date years - but only in my opinion.

Some folks on FAG are re-creating their family tree here which is JUST SUPER if they know where they are all buried. The problem is that they often add memorials without burial information in order to be able to link other memorials together. I take photos to document a grave, and I search the same cemetery on FAG for the name before creating a new memorial. I do NOT search all of FAG because I know darn well where they are buried - so If I duplicate a memorial that one of you idiots list as "no cemetery" then forgive me for not considering my memorial a duplicate.

That being said, there are many contributors here that truly care that these memorials matter. They spend hours in graveyards and on their computers to ensure that these folks are not forgotten. In their profiles there is no mention of the website rules. All they ask is that we care. I do.

Hi Amy,


You have a DUP in the Henniker Cemetery, can you remove Find A Grave 90194980 - it is a duplicate of 103791266 which has a photo.

Thanks!

Sue

Hacked?
Just got an email claiming to be from you with nothing but a link - and a lot of other people on the To: line. The email address here doesn't look familiar either - did you get hacked?

cheers

correct dates
Would you please correct the birth & death year of Jacob N Winn #40270325 in the Blodgett Cemetery. He was born in 1847 and died in 1848 not 1817 & 1818
Thanks

RE: Welcome!
Amy,
Thank you so much for your encouragement! I finally entered a bio. It turned out to be awfully long, but there's always the edit button, right? Anyway, I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again. And if I can help you with research or transcription or anything at all, please let me know!

Re Pauline Nudd
Hi I want to thank you for adding my Aunt on Find A Grave as I don't get down that way often. I would like to request that you transfer her to my care if you are not related as She was my mother's oldest sister and one of my favorite aunts. My Id # is 48770243

RE: Franklin
Oh my, did I dread it when I saw I had a message from you. I have been bombing you with edit requests, and I figured I was going to get an ear full from you! Thank you so much for your attentiveness to the edit requests. I just think the relationship feature is an amazing tool that gets overlooked at times, and when I can find it all in the cemetery, I just want those links out there for the interested families and researchers. Thank you so much for your help and patience. We are trying to get caught up on all the requests at Franklin. We need to sit down with the association and check on quite a few. When we can, I guess... All the best, Bill and April

What Member Qualities Should Be
Dear Amy,
Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit, your honesty and openness and the encouragement your profile gives me to continue. I have not been a member for very long, and I have been intimidated and disillusioned by haughty, proprietary attitudes and just general mean-spiritedness of some members to the point that I have been reluctant to even write a profile of myself or offer to help for fear of being embarrassed again.
But you have encouraged me to just jump in there and do what I can and try to ignore the people who just don't get the point. I am so glad you do get it and grateful that you have the back bone to speak up!

Thank you for updating the Parker & Beattie memorials. Eight of their 11 collective children are now accounted for. I will continue looking for the remaining three.
