Over the last 30 years I have learned a few things about genealogy.
1. Social Security does not show where an individual died, only the last residence. 2. Copying from other trees will only get you up the wrong tree with new leaves that don't belong. Not everyone sources and validates information. Some guess, assume and speculate How do you know the information is correct? 3. Grandma didn't always have the best memory. Names and dates got mixed up. 4. Grandma lied about her age. LOL
Met some really wonderful people on findagrave. Met some really horrible, nasty people on findagrave. I have received HARASSMENT, BULLYING and THREATENING emails. Please visit West Nidaros Cemetery, I transferred the memorials to Findagrave because those type of messages.
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
Because I have gotten a lot of incorrect information through the edits I do not automatically accept the information. I check out all edits before adding, linking or correcting. To make the process go quicker, please send your reliable documented source for the edits. Is there really a problem with that?
I would like to thank all of you who have sent sympathies and kind words of encouragement. It helps to know I am not alone and others have received the same type of messages.
