DO NOT USE MY EMAIL IN THE BIO FOR A SOURCE WHEN ADDING MY EDIT INFORMATION. It adds an incredible amount of spam in my mail due to web robots. "Volunteer 46947920" or my name will suffice nicely.

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.

Minnie Bolton (& your question)
It's me, not a robot :-)

Have a heavy duty cold that is keeping me house bound these opening days of January 2017, so the computer (and some books) have much of my attention in between reaching for Kleenex et al.

Thanks for asking,

I am happy to update memorials if you provide a creditable source reference that may be verified. Thank you for the work you do for the Find A Grave Community!

Thank you for your wonderful pictures, I had been wondering where we left him, now I know he's not missing, before all we had was a picture of the castle, not the tomb. Those are wonderful, I am sure Grannie Sarah would be happy to see how well her grandfather was cared for. I know I am. He is my 10th great grandfather.

RE: Firstbrooks
Sure, that would be fine. Thanks.

When did Rose marry William Firstbrook? Was if after the death of Alex Noteman in 1921. I did track down a closer date for his death--the 1920 census shows Rose married and the 1921 SF city directory lists her as the widow of Alex so that makes his death around 1921. Any clues?

Amazing isn't it. You are so right. It is a small world. Happy hunting, Pat

Thank you for your interest. I am working on an article regarding Georgenia's husband's family -- also married into my husband's family. Stalled because we moved last year -- your timing is amazing -- recently took a look at notes and have begun contacting descendants. Is your son-in-law descended from Edward or Marjorie?

Will keep track of your request, and when project is complete, will pass along the memorial.
