|Bio and Links|
|I have met many wonderful people on Find A Grave. Thanks to all the contributors for all you have done and continue to do. Thanks everyone for all the suggested corrections, and extra information provided to me. |
Unfortunately, there have been a number of individuals who do not understood that we are volunteers, who have been rude, who have been otherwise abusive or who have been frankly bizarre. Because of this, I will follow the Find A Grave guidelines. It is about the hunt, not the numbers. But dealing with some of the Find A Grave members and interlopers, I have learned to follow the guidelines.
UPDATES AND CORRECTIONS:
I am always happy to to update or correct memorials but PLEASE use the "EDIT" tab on individual memorials to suggest information corrections or additions. This sends a direct link to the memorial as well as your own profile page. If a request is left on my profile page it will be ignored and deleted. I just don't have the time to search for the individual memorial and then make the update.
If you discover that I have made a mistake or created a duplicate later than one you created, please use the Edit tab and send me the correction and I will delete the duplicate immediately. And please be nice. A simple request is all I ask. I strive to have my memorials as accurate as possible, but I am human and I will make mestakes.
I will only transfer listings of one's direct relatives within four generations as defined in Find A Grave Guidelines. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. Consider using the Virtual Cemetery feature. It's an easy way to collect all of your ancestors either in one big VC or you can have several VCs for various family lines.
What calls us to find the ancestors? It goes beyond a simple curiosity. We are taken over, compelled, as if possessed by something bigger than us that is begging to be revealed. There is one of us in most every family, called to be the scribe. I am but one of the many in the long line of storytellers of our clan. Like others I am called to gather and assemble the ancestors—to breathe life back into them as far back as we can reach. We take what we find and chronicle the facts of their existence, remembering their names and who they were and what they did. They are the sum of who we are, for without them, we would not exist. We greet those who came before us, restoring their place in the familial line. We scribe their stories and their histories. We search for them in public libraries, county records, and weed-filled or well-kept cemeteries. We comb through yellowed newspapers, family archives, and lovely old letters and photo albums. We find them! And in finding them—we find ourselves.

Thanks for letting me know about these duplicates, Ed. As soon as my internet connection behaves (it's being wonky today), I'll upload the marker photos to yours and remove my memorials.
|Chris Aiuto-Atkins||Everett Smalley|
Thank you so much for transferring Everett to us. I see that you have more of his family. I would like to get the family together soon.
Once again, thank you;

Thank you so much for taking the time to perform my edits by correcting Zoerena Scott's first name and middle initial and by including Virginia Fransen's maiden name. I appreciate your taking the time to create these two Memorials.
|David K. Anderson||RE: Dehard Johnson|
Hello Ed: A question – Dehard Johnson was my great-uncle (brother of my grandmother, Jennie D. Hall). I see that he’s listed twice in Find-A-Grave, as being buried in two different cemeteries (#55780411 and #61515922). The information shown on the gravestone photos accompanying #61515922 is definitely accurate. Do you happen to have a gravestone photo for #55780411? Thanks… Dave
|David K. Anderson||Thank You!|
Thank you for transferring the four memorials to me (David, Jennie, Eric & Ingebord Hall). Also, your thoughtful comments on each memorial are very much appreciated. I can see that you've also helped many others to memorialize their ancestors...
|BLV||Lena Agnes Sullivan Smart|
Thank you and much appreciated for adding the information in the Bio section of Lena's memorial.

They are also my fourth great grandparents. I (and other cousins) are wondering how our ancestry lineage lines up? Please email me privately (listed on my contributor bio). Thanks for all your contributions.
|Clark Vinson||Photo request|
Thanks you so much for taking the time to photograph Michael Alan Jones' grave marker. I know how much work it is and I really appreciate it.
