Bio Updated October 23, 2014

In a nutshell:

• I’m not in this for the numbers. You shouldn’t be either.
• I’ve never uploaded a spreadsheet. I find it too “impersonal”. Don't be offended if you do. This bio is about me, not you.
• For me, fulfilling Photo Requests is my most rewarding part of Find-a-Grave. Don’t be shy, Request Photos!
• Ask for memorial transfers. If they’re not in my family tree, I’ll comply with your request. Even if they are in my tree, if they're not a blood relative, I'll probably transfer them anyway.
• You’re free to use any of my photos for any purpose. There is no need to cite me as source.
• Use the Suggest a Correction (SAC) option whenever possible (or request a transfer). Especially for Names, Dates, Places etc. I’m thanking you now for those suggestions because I’ll probably never have the time to do it after they were originally requested and I’ve processed them.
• Use the “Suggest any other correction or addition” option on the Memorial Edit tab whenever possible for information that cannot be processed via the other available edit tab options (or request a transfer). I’m thanking you in advance for those suggestions now as well. I’ll usually perform them without question and try to cite you as source whenever possible on the memorial but I will likely not leave a note on your bio page to thank you in public. Feel free to not thank me on my bio page too.
• My email address is listed below; please only use it if you feel it necessary.

Thank you all for being unpaid Volunteers/Contributors. We’re all doing a good thing.

RE: photo on wrong memorial
Thank you :) I hate to be a pain but the other Sheldon-Swett photo needs to be moved too. (two different lots altogether)

photo on wrong memorial
Could you move the 2 photos you added to Charles Swett memorial over to Charles Henry Sheldons memorial. (it says Charles Henry son of A.H & S.E Sheldon on the headstone) Thank you.

I found this Charles Swett (1804-1861) over on the side of the Batchelder headstone. :)

Margaret Swensen Thonis
Good morning, Rick,
Any chance you might be returning to Hillside Cemetery in Townsend any time soon? I did find out that my husbandʻs cousin, Margaret Swensen Thonis is buried with her parents & sister, Bob & Gail Swensen & Kathleen Swensen Spinney, that you photographed for me a few days ago. Perhaps you saw her grave and took a picture? I have posted a memorial page for her and a photo request... would greatly appreciate it if you could add a photo to her page. Thanks so much for any help you can give...

Aloha e Rick,

Thank you so very much for fulfilling my photo requests for the Swensen family... they were my husbandʻs aunt, uncle, cousin & her husband... coincidental that you did this today... the family has gathered for another family funeral... thanks again... appreciate your time and effort... by the way, did you happen to see a grave for Margaret Swensen Thonis anywhere around the graves you photographed? Another daughter of Gail & Bob... Iʻm assuming she is buried there but trying to reach the cemetery to find out for sure...

I'm very suret sorry for the delay. Unfortunately her headstone is one that has broken. Enough was left to identify. I'm still translating and hoping to find Daniel
