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.

RE: Hannah Goal
She was d/o Albert W. Haight and Nancy Conley.
I am wondering if Albert and below Hiram Haight were brothers?

Edwin R. Haight m. Esther A. Dake my 2nd great grandmothers 1/2 sister. He was son of Hiram Haight and Sarah Swaim buired in East Hesperia Cemetery,
Hesperia, Newaygo Co., MI.

I am looking for marriage record for Hiram P. Dake
to Mrs. Helen Haight. Married New York or Barry Co. MI., in 1850.

Missing memorial?
This is a strange one. This morning I was looking at an obit in an out of town paper. It listed the name of the cemetery, so I checked for the person's name. It wasn't there. I made the memorial and then went back to look at it. I always do that to check for typos and other errors. Then, this afternoon I went back to make a link to the spouse. The memorial was gone. There was another one created by someone else a few days ago. The person died in another state, so there was probably an obit in a local paper there. Someone made a memorial and probably used the Unknown burial location. Then today, they must have found out the cemetery name and moved the memorial thru the edit burial tab. This far I can understand. But, how did they get rid of my memorial so quickly? I didn't get a message saying I had created a duplicate. Did they go directly to Find A Grave administration? If so, I am surprised how quickly it happened.

old obits?
How do people get 100 year old obits from the Titusville Herald paper? They seem to find them in a matter of minutes. I know it isn't the Titusville library, because I have been there. The Titusville Herald web site has archive search, but it seems to only go back a few years. The people who know how to do this consider it a closely guarded secret. Is it something they subscribe to and pay a monthly or yearly fee? Maybe you already know the answer.

Our Christy connection
Sorry it took so long to delete. Just found your message...haven't had the luxury of much genealogy research lately.

Yes, we are definitely related. Peter Christy was my 3rd great grandfather, Francis Xavier's, brother. Francis had Josiah who had James who had my grandmother, Anne Elizabeth Christy Murphy. My mother, Eileen, is still living. She married my father and they traveled alot for his work and ended up in the DC suburbs. Most of the family still lives in Pgh.

So nice to meet you. I would love to share genealogy notes with you. I have been doing family research for decades...back when you ordered hard copy certificates from county records. I have all of them back several generations so most of my info is very solid.

Why don't you contact me by private message and we can communicate through private email?

RE: Samuel Lamb
You created a page for Samuel Lamb, memorial # 118653717

I was wondering if you had anymore information, this is my oldest known ancestor and information on him has been hard to come by.

Henry Stover
in October of 2011 you left a message for Gail Palmer (#47030576)regarding Henry Stover who is supposedly buried in Asbury U.M. cemetery, Altoona, PA. He is my great great grandfather and have been trying to locate his grave. I searched that cemetery but was unable to locate his stone. Is there another Asbury cemetery in that area?
