Rudeness will be ignored.
I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their kin easily & accurately. It is an opportunity to honor those who have died as well as give current and future generations access to information on the life of a forebear or other relative.
Thanks to everyone who has sent encouraging and positive thoughts! I don't always have time to answer everyone back, but please know you too are appreciated. :)
With only a few exceptions, I will no longer enter cause of death info nor death certificate numbers.
Duplicates: It's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know.
If I enter a memorial on May 1st for Jane Doe and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Jane Doe on May 15th, the one entered on May 15th is the duplicate, not mine, regardless of how much info is or isn't on the memorial.
Transfers: I am not one of those people who refuse to transfer in or out of guidelines. Ask and ye shall receive, unless you're 1 of those people who don't transfer out of guidelines. Please note, if we are both related to the person in the memorial I will only transfer if you are related to a closer degree.
If you have any questions about family history research, or need help navigating this wonderful site, I always enjoy the opportunity to help you. Please contact me via the SAC tab on any memorial I have created.
Flemings Hi William, Happy to be transferring to family. Actually, you and I are distantly related. I see Edward Fleming was your ggg grandfather and his brother, James, was my ggg grandfather. Regards, Terry Beth
Powell family at Forest Hills There were several other Powell members in close proximity and I decided they had to be related, so I shot them all. There are many in this cemetery who are not linked yet, so you have your work cut out! Scout731 manages many of those memorials, and he is great about transfers.
My name is Fred Porter, I'll be happy to process the edits. Minter's place of birth jumped out at me immediately, so I had to look at your profile. My son's girlfriend is from Weston WV, and her g-grandfather, Dale Clark White was born in Hacker's Creek, the son of Seymour White and Jessica Woofter. Many of her ancestors were early settlers in Weston. Small World! I had to write, Have a great day, Fred
