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 family members and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits.

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. Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy. People with kind, sincere words make my day.

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. Cooperation is the entire point of this site. I now understand why people leave Findagrave. 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 will not link to an unknown burial.

**If you will not honor an update you are doing the memorial an injustice, not to mention the hard work of the volunteers and Findagrave admins who now have to do YOUR WORK. If you don't want to do updates, give your memorials to someone who will, PLEASE.

**Do not use my photos without permission, and ask BEFORE you use them. Simple, reasonable.

** 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.

Williams, James
The stone in the Ione, California cemetery that is listed as James "Harold" Williams is incorrect. His name is James "Henry" Williams, born 1852 in Helston, Cornwall. Please contact me for correct information.

RE: George Greer 49135684
I just discovered the connection today and am working through getting them connected, but I am only related to them through marriage. Leola Pridemore is my 3rd cousin 2x removed, married Bert Sitton, son of David Sitton, son of David Woods Sitton and Samantha Jane Greer.

RE: Effie Mae Ackerman 68593260
Hi Anne
Thank you for making the edit. Effie Mae is the grandmother of my cousins husband. Effie Mae's maiden name was "Allen". Her first husband's surname was "Ackerman" and her second husband "Bacon" was her last husband's surname.

Thanks so much for the transfer of memorials for Priscilla Morgan Linn and Arthur Grant Linn. My daughter was thrilled to have her great grandparents memorials! :)

memorial transfer
What a pleasant surprise to find on e-mail today! Thank you so much for the transfer of the memorials for William Calthorpe, my 13th great grandfather and Anne Drury, my 12th great grandmother. I am excited to be able to maintain these memorials. Thank you for all the work you have put into Find A Grave for researchers like me to discover. I appreciate the time spent and your dedication to those who have gone before us. Pat in Texas

I, like you, do this for their family, not mine.
And like you, I became a member because I was helped so much when I was doing my tree.
