Bio and Links

Keeping and maintaining our relatives.

Redistributing the other memorials to someone we know will take care of them and isn't interested in collecting dead people like normal people collect friends.

NOTE: If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to be a manager, please make arrangements to transfer your memorials to someone who is active and cares about the accuracy of the information. This really will help reduce duplicates, which we notice with increasing frequency.

If you place memorials and don't come back, or you refuse or neglect to fix them, link them, etc., they are as abandoned as many of the graves we encounter in cemeteries, only you have now abandoned these people twice.

It would also be a good idea to leave a family member or friend instructions on how to make transfers of your memorials in the event of your own untimely death.

In addition, it's not up to you to make new FAG rules regarding anything.

Thank You

(Borrowed from another active FAG Contributor)

"Ancestors are nice to have
We could hardly do without them
And if they made the page of fame
We strut and boast about them.

But there are those who think that souls
Who have lived out life's brief span
Still hang around their earth's abode
To watch the works of man.

So when I think of ancestors
Who have crossed the Great Divide
I wonder if they view my life
With the same exultant pride."

By Pearl E. Bowers
2nd Cousin, 3X removed

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932.

Contact info?
I looked all over the Find A Grave site and can't find out how to contact the administrators of Find a Grave directly. doesn't look like the way to go. Do you have the address or link?

I made memorial 76296128 for her in Tidioute Cemetery. Someone had the links added to the parents shown there. Now I get a request to change the father to Peter Brown 39338734 in Sutton Hill Cemetery and the mother to "Unknown". You have a lot of research tools available. Do you think I should make the change, or leave as is? Thanks for your time on this one.

I entered a picture of the marker. Would you mind entering the year of birth of 1897. This the date shown on the marker. Thank you for your hard work, Taphophile.

I can't email you.
the only problems with duplicates is most times the first one gets to and stays there. I don't care about being first, just the family getting the correct information. I was going from a list, which obviously had a defunct name, but we got close, and you found them. It's important, those cemeteries are remote, and it appears that most are broken and on the ground. Soon, they will be gone. Let me take a look into Ancestry and see what is hanging, if the others are already there, I can delete them. If they are both there, I can write to Find A Grave and ask for removal, I really don't mind. You're awesome for doing this... Jacki
