Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers. Photography of the markers is my primary focus. |
PLEASE be kind to the VOLUNTEERS who have added the names, dates and grave photos so YOU can find your missing kin and friends.
THANK them for their work! Courtesy and kindness accomplish much.
Provide something other than census records and SSDI as sources WITH edit requests instead of waiting for the denial to arrive.
Adding family links without adequate research and documentation tends to create MULTIPLE errors that require hours of work to remove, if they get corrected at all. I am very cautious with accepting link requests as the result of past errors. It takes only seconds to hit the 'accept' tab, endless hours and headaches to repair the damage. It is the responsibility of the requestor to do the research, not the memorial manager who did the photos.
A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.
I spend many hours researching edit requests at local court houses, libraries, and online. I often find edit requests have errors and therefore decline as allowed by Find a Grave. If this is a problem for requestors, I transfer management to Find a Grave. The majority of edit requests are approved within the 21 day time allowed. No one benefits from memorials with erroneous information. If there are no grave marker photos, likely the name and dates have been added from an index or other source. If you are a family member and asking for a transfer, please state and explain your relationship.
Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

|S.A. Balow||Thank you for your help|
Just a note to let you know that I left the updated photo in place for the Brown memorial. I deleted the older photo. Thank you Melodie, I appreciate all the assistance you have given me.
|S.A. Balow||Double photo|
You attached a second photo for the gravesite of Garfield Brown (Find A Grave Memorial# 117660986). Sue Butterfield Picard had already placed one there. I tried to remove it but was unable to. Will you do so please?

I just noticed that you have added some memorials to East Lawn in the last 90 days. Are you in the process of taking pix there? I have been there twice in the last week and have taken over 1300 pix. I was going to try take all 3600 or more, but if that's one you want to do, I'll move on to something else. If you want them, maybe we can figure out a way to get my pix to you.

Melodie, you wrote: "Thank you for completing the verse and adding it. Good work!"
Don't know what I used to do before 'Google'. Thanks to you for starting the verse.
|Jim Randolph||Grant Woodrow Olson|
Thank you for posting the grave marker for Grant W Olson - much appreciated!
|Cathy Morgan||Randy Rude|
I changed the burial record. Thank you so much for the correction.
|Connie L. Vance||RE: Oliver and Edith Darwin photo requests|
Thanks so much for tracking these down and fixing the problem. It does look a lot like Barmin. Appreciate your time spent in this.

Herbert Leach is our great grand uncle, If you would consider transferring his memorial we would appreciate it very much.
We have additional information that we would like to put on the site, We would appreciate if you would grant us the opportunity.
Between Marie and I we have about 80 years of family history

Please check 99013139..Ed. Ranke. He was married to a relative of mine ...Rosetta Dahl. The gravestone gives another woman's name. Also, are the dates on the stone the same as what I have? Just not sure. Thanks!
