All requests for transfers should be done through the EDIT tab on the memorial that you would like...and please do not forget to add YOUR Findagrave number. This is the method that I prefer because it is easier for me. Thank you.

|Robert Leitner||RE: Just checking in...|
Had a few set backs a few months ago. Little problem with the "old ticker." Have recovered very well and feeling good. I follow you on find a grave and see you are still active. Keep up the good work - Bob
Thanks so much for the article! Greatly appreciate it!
The death day on it is a mistake... They used the date the obituary was originally published, which was a Friday. The obit said he passed on Tuesday. I checked my online 'Day of the Week' thingy and the 5th was a Tuesday, so it's all good. :)
I'm going to update his memorial on May 13 when he is inducted into the hall of fame.
Again, Thanks so much for passing it on!

Love LOVE your sign! It's hilarious! I have a fan base involving my ex-husbands family here on Find A Grave & across the internet. They are not nice people. Why not give them something to talk about? So a BIG THANK YOU! Just PERFECT! They tend to think I get through life with my body, and not my brains. Taphophile anyone? ME ME! I RAISE BOTH MY HANDS! Guilty as Charged! LOL.
|AZEXPLORER||I just learned a new word!|
OMGosh... I just learned a new word!
Taphophile - describes an individual who has a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries.
I saw your salutation on one of your messages to someone else... so I looked it up! How fun! Thanks for that!
Happy taphophiling to you, too! :)
|DogMama08||RE: deliberate duplications|
I agree that a graver should offer the additional information to the original contributor. I do it all the time with things like parents' names when the parents don't have memorials, hoping they will be added in the future.
There are a lot of duplicate memorials. I find them when I'm searching for people with the same names. So far I have only found one contributor who admitted to deliberately adding duplicate memorials and have only found a few who, as a matter of course, don't seem to search for existing memorials. I think there are some newer contributors who don't understand that they can add a photo to a memorial created or managed by someone else, and they create duplicates just to post the photos. Most of us HATE to learn we have added a duplicate because it's such a waste of our time.
I LOVE the automated SAC function! Before it was implemented, I almost NEVER got responses to SAC messages I sent. Some contributors still never respond to requests to add bio information. I imagine some gravers create duplicates out of frustration just to add that info, instead of asking Find A Grave to do it when the memorial's creator doesn't respond. My experience with non-responsive contributors is usually because the person has "gone inactive," and I send a message to Find A Grave suggesting they check the account's activity.
I'm not blaming anyone for duplicates, though, until Find a Grave's search function is foolproof, or close to it. I've had too many occasions where a search didn't find a memorial for a person when I KNEW one existed. In fact, it happened to me again just yesterday. Usually checking the partial-surname search box helps, but not always; and I have no idea why.
A couple of years ago there was one memorial I could only reach through the link on Ancestry. Find A Grave wouldn't retrieve it by name OR memorial number and said "memorial not found."
The duplicate memorials that are the biggest pain to correct are caused by duplicate cemetery listings, and I'm always amazed at how often that happens. I don't know how often you've run across that. Some contributors add cemeteries without adequate research first. Sometimes the cause is multiple local names for a cemetery, and funeral homes are often to blame. By now, there should be very few cemeteries not already added to Find A Grave. I added three very small Native American cemeteries in Oklahoma in one day a couple of years ago, but only after a whole day of internet research to determine they weren't in Find A Grave by another name, that they actually existed, and they were separate cemeteries in the same county that weren't far apart. Sometimes I take a break from memorials and work a few days on cemetery corrections. Correcting duplicate cemetery listings is a almost always a multi-step process and can sometimes take days to finish.
Sorry to be so long winded!
