Motto: Sources, sources, sources!

My philosophy is that since this is a grave site memorials should reflect information shown on grave marker. I will add other info in notes if sources are provided.

RE: Armstrong Cemetery, Dubius Indiana
Will try. I know there's a reflection in the photo. I'll have to find the original. I cannot find it on the find a grave site, though, can you send me a link to it?

RE: name of cemetery
Hi, The name of the cemetery is something that I can not change. It can probably be changed by sending something to Find A Grave but I am not sure how that is accomplished. I will look through the "frequently asked questions" to see if I can spot something about this.

RE: Solomon Hasting
Your theories align very much with mine.

I've been knee deep in a totally different line today; let me look at the Hasting family again and get back to you on Mary Etta. Your theory on her name is plausible and is not one I had thought of.

Hello; thank you for your suggestion for Solomon Hasting.

The choices on this place do not include ones which do not exist any more.

Salisbury, MD in Wicomico county, is the closest thing today, to where he was born; also, it is on his son's death cert. as his father's (Solomon) birth place.

Borders in MD and DE changed a lot over the years as you know.

He was born in what is NOW Salisbury, Wicomico, MD. Or perhaps you had more information to share.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
And by the way, I just wanted you to know I'm not trying to be rude or unpleasant. I know it's hard to tell my intent or tone just from reading words in a message. I greatly admire your desire for accuracy. I have the same philosophy, as you will see in my bio. So please, I hope you don't take offense. Even if we disagree over whether a death certificate is a reliable source, we both have the same goal, accuracy. And that's what's important. Hester Hudson is not related to me, I just happened to stumble upon the information while researching something else and thought it might be beneficial to someone else. I like to share and help others ( as I'm sure you do as well)and if some information I find can save someone a few minutes researching it themselves, that's a bonus!

RE: Hester J. Hudson
I never said anything about Find A Grave being a "one-stop genealogy site". Find A Grave has provided options to enter this and other various information for a reason and it's a terrible disservice to everyone to blatantly ignore information from usually credible resources such as state issued death certificates. But that's just my opinion, and obviously the opinion of the majority of Find A Grave users as well as the creators. Thanks.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
What a shame! I've never encountered this situation before. Usually people want as much information as possible. It'll probably be a new one for the people at Find A Grave too. Thanks.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
All the information is in the edit request. Are you familiar with the edit function? When you create a memorial and people find additional information they submit an edit request. The edit will show what is currently on the memorial and the change that the person is suggesting. You have the option to either "Approve" "Ignore" or "Decline". If you decline, then you have to select the reason why you are declining so that if the person disagrees with the decline they can contact Find A Grave to have it overruled. Here's Find A Grave's instructions, they explain it better!

How do I process memorial edits I have received?
From your 'Profile' page, select the 'Edits' tab. The tab will display the number of edits you currently have pending. If the number is more than 25, the number will be displayed in red.

'Pending Edits I need to review' will be displayed. From here, you can review the pending edits submitted to you by other members. You will see three columns. The first will be the name of the memorial which you can click on to open the memorial in a new window. The second will show you how the memorial looks currently. And the third will show you the proposed look after the edit. All edits are by default as 'Accept'. Do not click 'Process selected edits' at the bottom of the page until you are ready to approve all the edits marked 'Accept'.

Accepting the edit will update the memorial to show what is in the 'Edit' column.

Declining the edit will not process the update for the memorial. If you decline the edit, you must select the reason from the dropdown menu as well as leave an optional short note.

Once you have selected one of the three options for each of the edits on the page, click 'Process selected edits'. The system will begin updating the memorials with the selected updates. Wait for the page to complete before going on to the next task. [Top]
