Bio and Links
I'm located in North West Mississippi.

Duplicates: There are quite a few duplicate cemeteries and memorials being made. We are human and do realize errors happen as none of us are perfect. We ask that you PLEASE do your research before adding anything. Read the Duplicate Guidelines, Cemetery Guidelines and Memorial Guidelines first. They may answer any question(s) you have.

There is one particularly dishonest person at Find A Grave whom I've had the displeasure of being associated with. I don't know if I'm allowed to use her name here or not. I'll check on that then and add it if I can. She does not have public message board. She changes names to make it look like she added a memorial before I or other people she deals with did when we do like most people here and check to see if a memorial has been added before adding one. I check the Find A Grave site first, then check the cemetery and a name wont show up. Suddenly there is one made by this dishonest person with a number lower than the one I added a few hours earlier.

Also this same person has duplicates galore; not with just names I've added, but other people's too.

I have a Virtual Cemetery with duplicates she has posted and been contacted about and has done nothing. At this time there are 42 duplicates she has made and not corrected.

All she seems interested in is getting high numbers of memorials, showing no respect for the deceased or their families.
It is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.
If you have questions please ask or find errors please let me know and I will correct them as soon as possible. I try to do most updates, corrections, links etc within a couple of days.

WE are here to help each other and WE are all volunteers to this amazing website. So please try to be considerate when making requests, nastiness isn't becoming to anyone.

RE: George & Mercedes McSweyn
Thank you for the transfer! I think I have found our common ancestor, but am not 100%, yet.

RE: George & Mercedes McSweyn
I am not sure if I am related to them, but with that name spelled like that, I would think I am in some way. I am researching them now. I appreciate your work and uploads to this website!

Hi Linda,
I stumbled across these two people and saw that you had a good bit of information about them on their memorial. I was wondering if you were related to them. If you'd like to email me, my email is Thanks!

Sweet Linda, I wouldn't even consider not giving you credit for an obituary. You put a lot of time and work into locating these obituaries and I appreciate so much your willingness and sweet spirit for wanting to locate them. That's very special. I'm glad you're feeling better to be able to get out.

Betty German Williams
Could you please link G. Bell Stainback German's husband Herman German as Betty's father. Betty is buried in Union Cemetery and the Germans are buried in Rehoboth (Reobeth) Cemetery in Fayette Co. Tn.

Betty is my Aunt and Herman and Belle are my grandparents.

Thank you,

RE: Gaston Family Edits

This line of Gaston's are in my tree but by way of marriage through a cousin. For example, Cozette Gaston, III is the "grand nephew of wife of 1st cousin 2x removed" to me.

I usually don't request a transfer for relatives that far from me. I do appreciate the offer though.
