~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Memorial Naming Conventions (Per F-A-G Help)
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. IF FULL NAME IS KNOWN, USE THE FULL NAME AND NOT THE INITIAL.
No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field.
Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Nickname
Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's surname as their new surname. If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

***IF I HAVE ALREADY POSTED A PICTURE ON A MEMORIAL WHICH I MANAGE, PLEASE TO NOT POST TWO OR THREE MORE SIMILIAR ONES. GOOD MEMORIAL PHOTOS ARE CLOSE-UP, CLEAR AND EASY TO READ AND TAKEN AT THE TIME OF DAY WHEN LIGHTING IS BEST. FOCUS ON THE MEMORIAL! IF YOU THINK YOUR PHOTO IS BETTER THAN MINE, THEN EMAIL IT TO ME AND I WILL DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO ADD IT!***

***Please do NOT post death certificates or any scanned documents such as this on any of my memorials!***

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*PLEASE READ*
Techniques for getting GOOD photos of memorial stones/markers:

1) Go prepared! Carry a brush/small broom/weed clippers, etc. just in case some clean-up is needed before photographing a marker. (SOME PEOPLE ARE TOO LAZY TO EVEN REMOVE A FEW LEAVES!)

2) Take a pic of the entire stone with surrounding
area in case you need to go back and redo a photo. BY ALL MEANS TAKE A CLOSE-UP OF THE INDIVIDUAL'S MARKER! Look at the back of the monument as you may find additional information there.

3) On your camera, choose the proper resolution. Low settings allow for more photographs, but higher resolutions will give better photos, especially on those hard-to-read stones.

4) Avoid taking photos with the sun directly behind you. The shadow will be unattractive and you may recognize your own image in the photo.
Photos made when the sun is behind the monument tend to glare...not good for a monument photo!
THE VERY BEST TIME FOR PHOTOS IS ON AN OVERCAST DAY FOR THE VERY BEST COLOR AND NO SHADOWS OR REFLECTIONS.

5) *MOST IMPORTANT* Plan your camera position. For stones that are flat to the ground, photos NEED TO BE TAKEN FROM ABOVE. For stones that are positioned vertically, PUT YOUR CAMERA AT WAIST LEVEL OR KNEEL DOWN TO TAKE THE PHOTO.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PLEASE BEFORE YOU CREATE A NEW MEMORIAL, CHECK TO SEE IF ONE FOR THAT PERSON HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED. IF ONE HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED AND THEY ARE RELATED TO YOU, KINDLY REQUEST A TRANSFER...MOST FIND-A-GRAVERS ARE HAPPY TO TRANSFER RELATIVES TO THEIR RESPECTIVE FAMILY MEMBERS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PLEASE USE PROPER CHANNELS TO: SUBMIT REQUESTS, SUGGESTIONS, ETC. THROUGH THE EDIT TAB IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL TO AVOID ERRORS. CLICK ON THE TAB AND THE SELECT "Suggest a correction or provide additional information: AND TYPE IN YOUR REQUEST. If you request the addition of an obit, please include publication source and date.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*PLEASE DO NOT ADD OBITS IN THE FLOWERS AND NOTES SECTION!*

RE: M L Harris photo
I bought the photo in Oxford,Alabama at an antique mall. Below the name on back written in pencil looks to be an address and below that perhaps the price and a town. I'll scan the back but don't know if it will show through or not. I would love to reunite this photo with family.

Thanks for repeating your request to make changes. I did not get the first request. I have had others that have told me that they have sent request that I did not receive. I have made the changes that you asked and have transferred the memorial to you as I am not related.

From Sarah
I linked James Clements to his parents, per your request, and also added his obit. Are you related to Mr. Clements? If so, I would be happy to transfer his memorial to you. I am descended from Salathiel Clements and Ellender Barry Clements, who lived in Calhoun Co. in the 1800s.

Hello!
I just wanted to let you know I received your edit request. I am in fact related to Dovie. Her older brother, Benjamin Roland Hodnett, is my great-grandfather. If you are directly related to Dovie, I would love to share information!

As a general rule, adding obituaries to Find A Grave listings is something I don't do. I glean information from the obituaries as needed, and if it is someone from either side of the family (my husband or mine), I add the obituary to their individual listing on the family tree. Adding obituaries to Find A Grave listings just creates a cluttered look, and most of the information is already part of the listing. If you would like to help link Dovie to her children's listings, that would be helpful. As a courtesy, I will add her obituary this one time.

Hope you are having a good evening!
Blessings,
Lydia James
