|Bio and Links|
I've been interested in history and genealogy for many years. I was delighted when we moved to New England. I have been able to combine my interests and find many new ancestors. My grandson used to visit cemeteries with me, running to a gravestone and asking me to tell him the story of the person there. Find A Grave is keeping those stories alive. |
When I visit a cemetery to search out our family members, I frequently take pictures of interesting headstones, common surnames, or those surrounding the stones I am seeking. I have also photographed all of the headstones in several small cemeteries. For those taken in Whitefield, NH, I have checked the cemetery records of the Whitefield Town Hall for confirmation of the information posted. Please feel free to use these photographs for your personal use, but if posting to another site, please give credit to Find A Grave for the photographs posted.
If you have information on some of the memorial pages I have entered, please take time to share it with me. I will post your information with a reference to you so that others can benefit from your research.
I am happy to re-unite families. I will gladly transfer the memorial pages of those who are unrelated to me into your care if he/she is one of your family members.
[Researching Booth, Drown, Eastman, Haskins, Magoon, Warren, Wright,and related New England families. Also researching Mid-Western families of Schroder, Moller, Williams and more.]

|Patrick Forbes||RE: Photo Requests|
My bad, thanks for getting back to me. I've lost a bit of confidence in the Photo Request E-mail thing lately as it doesn't seem to work all that well, I've found.
|Patrick Forbes||RE: Photo Requests|
It's in Van Buren, Maine. Are you in that area? I only assumed you might be.
|Patrick Forbes||Photo Requests|
Just wondering if you checked the Photo Requests page lately. I have two I’d like if possible.

I have many other Willey stone pictures from that plot.

|John Glassford||Thank you for the Dodge gravestone photos!|
Sophronia Abbott Dodge # 114367521
Susan Dodge # 114367549
Thank you for taking the time to take these photos. By the looks of the stones you got there just in time as Sophronia's stone is in horrible condition.
Thank you for finding a very old grave. Great great great grandfather

I thought I would pass this along... it is from the FAQs at Find A Grave. Not a lot of contributors are aware of this new feature yet.
What is the new Edit tab on my contributor page?
We currently are working to update our "Suggest A Correction/Submit an Edit" system. At this time, Find A Grave contributors may submit updates to the Name, Birth and Death Dates and Locations, and Plot fields via a new Edit System. When they submit edits to any of those fields, the managing contributor will no longer receive an email notification. These edits are now waiting for the managing contributor's review on their Contributor Page.
To review edits to these fields that have been submitted for memorials you manage, go to your 'Contributor Tools' and click on the 'Edits' tab.
The edits awaiting your approval will be listed with a link to the memorial page, the public name of the contributor who submitted the edit and the date it was submitted, and the information currently in the field and the suggested updated information for the field. There is then the option to Accept, Decline, or Ignore the submitted edit. If you Accept the edit, the changes will automatically be made for you and the person who submitted the update will receive an email confirming that the edits were made. If you Decline the edit, you will need to select a reason why you are declining it, and the changes will not be made the person who submitted the update will receive an email with the reason why you declined it. If you Ignore the edit, it will stay in your queue for your later review.
In the near future, we hope to add the ability to submit relationship links via this system. We will also have a time limit on the processing of edits, so that the memorials of contributors who are no longer active on Find A Grave may still be updated. As part of the time-limit feature, contributors who have edits in their queue for a certain number of days will receive an email notification about the pending edits waiting review.
The new system should save contributors a lot time in making edits to their memorials, as the managing contributor will no longer have to search for the memorial page, open the edit feature, search for city locations, etc. It will automatically go through with the contributor's approval.
I made the updates. Thank you for the information.
