Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy nut. The Family Tree Maker was the first program I purchased when I got a computer. I have been working on my family tree for over 20 years now. Part of genealogy is of course, photos of headstones. I must say, my relatives thought it a bit odd that I was always after them for photo's of headstones. I have a large family that is spread throughout the United States, and the only way to get a photo was through someone else's kindness. I came across this web site while searching the web for a Uncle, his name popped up on findagrave. Not even his children knew what had happened to him. Nobody had heard from him in years. I put in a request for a photo of his headstone and within two days some one had fulfilled that request….WOW…. I was able to let my cousins know where their Dad was and show them a picture of his headstone…. Right then and there I decided I needed to share all the information that I had gathered through the years about the resting places of my relatives and ancestors. I was really touched, that a stranger would take the time to do a favor for someone they didn't even know. I was able to fill a request for someone the very next week. I try to keep a watch for requests of cemeteries close to my home.

Hi Carol,

You aren't alone in not knowing about the edits. They never sent out any emails about it, it just popped up there. I had to be informed as well, and felt pretty silly myself, and occasionally forget to look to see if I have received any! Regards, Lori

The "edits" won't be made until you approve them. If you look at the top right hand corner of your profile page it has a TAB called "EDITS". That's where you can approve or decline edits. It's up to you whether or not to allow the edits.

You don't really know that the information the person sends is correct, but it is their family member. It's the same with the memorials YOU create. How do I know the information you put is correct? Unless there is a picture of the headstone with the name and dates, or a photo of the birth and death certificates I have no way of knowing. But, then again, I've even seen that info being incorrectly transcribed in some memorials here on Find A Grave.

As for Emma Sisson Waldron Rood, her name would have remained "Kond", (and unsearchable) if you hadn't trusted that I knew what I was doing when I contacted you.

I guess it all comes down to trust. You either do, or you don't, it's entirely up to you.

Regards,
Lori

Thanks for linking her parents. I know that I sometimes forget to look at my edits page, as Find A Grave does not send an email alerting us. In fact, I was unaware that we had that option until I read it on someone another contributor's profile page. Shows how much I pay attention to my own homepage! Lori

The memorial is still showing "Kond", instead of Rood. Thanks, Lori
