As long as you hold me in your memory.
Remember me.
~~Josh Groban~~

This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits. Quality, not quantity.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

Pete Hilliard

I received another “suggestion” from you this morning to modify Pete Hilliard’s Find A Grave. This again contains inaccurate information. I am not involved in pursuing Federal recognition for the Yosemite tribe however I am very well acquainted with the efforts…or I should say failed efforts ….that have transpired. These have been because of bogus and inaccurate genealogies submitted to the government. There are various sources for these inaccuracies and I’m not sure what source you are using but whatever you are using is incorrect and you are not doing a service to the Yosemite tribe by perpetuating this information.

Please disregard my previous message. I've never noticed the edit page on my personal Findagrave site. I would have assumed that one would receive emails to notify that the edits were requested, which I didn't receive. At any rate, I did find your edits on my page and have approved them all. :) Linda

RE: Josiah Priest
I haven't received any edit requests from you to date, just additions to bios.

RE: Josiah Priest
Why don't you go ahead and ask the poster to remove it. Thanks for all you do for Findagrave! :)

RE: Josiah Priest
Perhaps I'm blind, but I can't find where I can delete the photo of the obit on Mr. Priest's site. Do you know where it is? Linda

Why do you believe the photo of the obit should be removed?

RE: Hogan Cemetery
I think I found away to reply to you. I don't want to post my email publicly.
