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

|1murphy4u||RE: Murphy Transfer Request|
Thanks again for you transfer! I really do appreciate what you're doing here at Find A Grave...
|1murphy4u||RE: Murphy Transfer Request|
The Therese(a) Murphy which I requested a transfer of was born (a Murphy) in Butte, MT and lived all of her adult life in Seattle(she was an elementary teacher in the Seattle school district). She was my grandfather's sister and she never married and never had children. I know her entire family genealogy and I know she had no direct relatives of her own. I have pictures of her and know her life pretty well.
I do not recognize any of the Murphy names you listed and I know our family genealogy well. If you wouldn't mind reconsidering your position on being the custodian, I'd be very grateful. I am currently the Find a Grave custodian of all of my immediate relatives. I would like my living relatives to be able to go to one site to view anyone they would like.
I could always duplicate the entry, but I'd like not to have to.

You are just too funny. I am glad your are doing this. I just happened to see your byte me comment when I needed a good laugh. Sending you a Hug.
I was looking for family in Oregon and Minnesota and I added pictures.
|Denise Bratcher||RE: Dawson, Israel Folsom |
might I ask which cemetery records this was taken from? I mean I am just verifying information. I volunteer for another place as well and I can't seem to locate this grave or stone. I would like to cross reference the information. I will probably go back out there this weekend. I have found that many on find-a-grave are duplicates and to one it might look life an I and it might be an L instead. Find-a-grave is weird how one person info they will keep even when you show them it is incorrect. Then the next time they want your info. I want to record the facts as correctly as possible. I have a really old book that I refer to as well and it has mistakes as well. We must be diligent in facts because future persons will be using our work.
|Denise Bratcher||Dawson, Israel Folsom "I.F" 41464032|
Your entry of Dawson, L - vs I.F.
Townsend Cemetery, Lawrence County, Arkansas.
Lorie, I am wondering if this is the same person as I.F. the dates are very similar and since you do not have a photo of the stone. I believe through my research it is the same person. I have recently taken photos in the cemetery and can not locate your L person.
|Patty Foster||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.

Thank you so much for letting me have John Lyle Nokes. I will be putting the links between family to him and now we will all be able to find him. Thank you again.
|Patricia Hampton||Juanita Murphy|
I have corrected the name for Juanita Murphy so she now has the correct maiden name. Thank you for the information. Pat
|J Alexander||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.
|John Latchford Beck||Your profile|
I really enjoyed reading your profile & love your approach & your philosophy.
And, darn, you have a great sense of humor!
Thanks for all your hard work!
