Bio and Links
Bio Photo Rest in peace Jacquelyn. It was a long, painful fight.

I don't link to "Burial Unknown". This isn't your note folder. If you want me to put the names of the parents or spouse in the bio section, send me the name in a suggestion.

Before you send me an 'edit' to link to a spouse, take a moment to see if YOU have the memorial for the spouse. If so . . . why are you sending me that 'edit'? Just link them.

If you discover someone has transferred a duplicate to you, I can get that taken care of if you transfer that duplicate to me.

I don't, knowingly, put the names of living people on memorials. If you see something I missed, please let me know so I can delete it. If you are composing an email to me with all the names of the living descendants you want me to put in the bio of a memorial, including your own name, save us both some time . . you to write it; me to read it and delete it.

I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friend's memorial.

I like to look up additional info. for other people's memorials. More folks should hop off the 'flower' button and hop on a death index or the census, and send some 'edit's, to actually improve more memorials on the site.

ADDING A LINK IN THE BIO
If you want to add a link to another memorial in the bio of a memorial copy&paste this in the bio;
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=Put Memorial Number Here">Put Name Here< /a>

You will need to remove the space between < and a at the beginning as well as the space between the < and / at the end. The spaces were added here to actually show you the code. Then replace "Put Memorial Number Here" with the memorial number you want to make a link to. Replace "Put Name Here" with the name you want to be in blue as the link.

On 28 JUL 2013 I was blessed to receive almost 45,000 abandoned memorials to work on in Italian Cemetery in Colma, CA.

I want to thank all the photographers out there getting headstone photos on memorials so the rest of us can sit on the couch and 'visit' our relatives. You may never know just how grateful we are.

OH WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THOSE LAST NAMES OF A DISCIPLE OF ELIZABETH TAYLOR -
You want to acknowledge all the marriages, but you don't want a crappy looking memorial with 6 last names crammed into the maiden and/or last name space.
Find A Grave suggests;
The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' space is only for her maiden name.

Is there a close-up photo of the photo on his grave marker in the Italian Cemetery in Colma? Memorial ID 44411181.

Joseph C. Frazier
Thanks for the offer to transfer. I am awaiting a reply from one of Joseph's great grandchildren to see if perhaps he would like to maintain the memorial first.

Although Joseph's mother's last name is listed as du Pont; the correct spelling is de Ponte and most likely she died in Hawaii. I have not found her yet as well.

RE: Your grandmother
Hi Samantha.
Sure, if you would like to transfer my grandma's memorial to me, that would be great.
Her parents, I'm not really sure where they are buried. Somewhere in Ohio, I believe.
Thanks
Tim

RE: Mildred Miller
Hi Samantha.
If you would like to still be the keeper of the memorial, that would be great. Just happened to find the website recently and thought I'd add a picture of my grandma's headstone. Thanks for adding the memorial and for what you are doing!

Kenneth Allen (your links question)
Samantha,
I knew Ken Allen and met his mother one time (when I was young). I thought her name was Edna. The link to his father Oliver is correct is all I can say for sure.
