PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.|
I don't do estimated birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.
PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.
I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.
If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.
My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.
Sources for additional memorial information include:

Would you be willing to transfer Manley Milton Mowry and Lilla Josephine Mowry to me? My father, brother and sister and our families are the only descendants. If you were able to photograph the gravestones of their daughters, Mary Elizabeth Mowry (1879-1965) and Lucy White Mowry Baird and Lucy's husband, Everett Jamieson Baird, we would appreciate it.

FYI see Arvilla & her daughter "Lizzie"
Thank you for your response. I appreciate that you made the effort, and for giving me the additional information. Continue to tell people why you decline their requests...it is a good thing to do. Thanks!

Thank you for your response. I understand why you declined my edit on Minnie's Memorial Page. I had one source that named Minnie as Annie, and as a "competent researcher" I should not have asked for the edit. However, having been an educator for over 30 years, I know not to put others down when responding to their requests/comments. Thank you for time.

Miss Hudson's bio has been edited. Thanks!

Thanks for the correction of Clara's date of death. As with most edits, I try to double check the data. After reading your "bio," it seems you've taken care of that, but out of habit, I took a quick look at GenealogyBank. Not the typical obit!
I see references to being a presenter on a number of subjects. As President of the Western Mass Genealogical Society and its "accidental" program manager, I appreciate the chance to talk with you about our 2017 schedule and the possibility of having you as a guest at one of our monthly meetings.
Our last member survey indicates as strong desire of our membership to hear about legacy societies and the process to submit successful applications. As a recent inductee of the Pomeroy Chapter of the SAR, I have an appreciation of the difficulties. I'd speak about it but I think they've seen enough of me!!
I apologize for all this here in a public message forum as your personal email is understandably not included in your profile. But please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can have a conversation outside of Find-A-Grave.

I want to thank you for sponsoring the memorial I added for my little dog Doogie. My Little Guy followed me all over the house all day long, every single day. I really miss him, but I remember happy memories instead of feeling sadness. Doogie was a big-dog personality in a small-dog body. While most dogs run from vacuum cleaners and brooms, he had to be in the middle of the whole operation; and I never figured out why in all the years he lived with me. He was intelligent and intensely curious, so maybe that was his reason--that he might discover something interesting--or to eat!

If you want to send it along I will add obits to the bio.
