Bio Photo The Key To Any Puzzle Is Laying Down The First Piece...... ~Lorie

That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information I applaud you for it that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information byte me

FAG comment
I accidentally stumbled across your contribution page and started reading it and I am so glad you feel the same way I do. I take photos where ever I go but I'm not doing the family history on them. I was taking pics at one cemetery and along comes a neighbor who thinks it's her cemetery so I quit going there. Now she is adding a photo copy of their funeral record which often tells what they died of. Several killed themselves and I think it's tacky to put that on there. She goes back and adds pictures to mine because she thinks hers are better or she adds the whole family to the one person and it looks junky. She is always sending me info to add: plot number, title (Rev. Dr., etc) maiden name - info. that's not on the stone. Sometimes I add it, sometimes I don't. I have other things to do. Sorry - you just made me feel good since I don't think it's necessary to do all the extra stuff some do.

RE: Mary Jane Robinson Cochrane
Thank You Lori
Unfortunately the person who manages her memorial now, is not as helpful as you are. I'm stuck between a Rock and a Hard Place.
