Rickie John Sorensen - - Famous person
Good morning - - I work FLLB a lot, the staff know me and are very helpful. A request came through for memorial 7276657, Rickie John Sorensen, a child actor. Cemetery records confirm he is buried with his brother, Lonnie. I am asking for the photos pending to be approved. Thanks - C. Bryan 46788769

Adopted & Biological
My father was adopted at 2 days old but found and developed a relationship with his biological siblings.

We need Findagrave to enable us to record (when necessary) both biological and adoptive parents.

The alternative is to create 2 separate grave records, one that links to the biological lineage and the other that links to the adoptive lineage.

New icon?
Would it be possible to create a way to sites that have no headstone or other marker? Our family is organizing a group to try to place markers where needed and we are hoping others would try to do the same. It would sure make the task easier if we could identify these graves without a lot of searching. Thanks for your consideration of our suggestion and thank you for all you do at Karen.

Would it be possible to change the Search page to allow all memorials to appear, not just cemetery burials to show-up? Just wondering and Thanks.

This is a person that is taking over a LOT of cemeteries and memorials that other people have put in. Take for example Ava Cemetery they have taken over memorials that I know other folks have put in. This is not RIGHT. I would like HSN investigated.
Now I know that there are contributers that do good work and have a lot of memorials and that is great. But this person not so much.
