Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers.|
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 as sources WITH edit requests instead of waiting for the denial to arrive.
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.

Hi. I'm sorry I didn't do a very good job stating who I was talking about. I was referring to Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Dunn County, WI. And the Steves I was referring to were Ella Steves Love, Minnie V. Steves, and Edna Steves Grant.
Hi. I was wondering if you are related to the Steves in Pleasant Valley Cemetery? I am and if you would like to transfer them to me I would love it! I have a lot of information I can add. If you are related too, don't worry about doing a transfer. And I appreciate you putting them up. Thanks!

All 6 Blickers are changed to Blicher and the photos added. Anna, Robert Frederick, Paul, Rev. Peter, Richard Arthur and Verna. Thanks for working through this. It sounds like you had a lot of success between the two cemeteries anyway!

|Rachel G||RE: 'Blicker' family at St. Paul's Menomonie|
Sorry for the extra work you've done. As you probably know there are errors in the indexes that we are using to create the memorial but at least we have them there for people to correct. I actually was at the cemetery last weekend also and have photos of the Blichers that are misspelled so I could just add mine and correct the spellings if that works for you - just let me know. Yours are not linked as family yet so there is still that to be done if I delete mine.
Were you the red car that stopped in and then left while I was there? I was hoping to meet one of the photographers while I was there but they left without getting out of the car!
Anyway thanks for all the work you've done and let me know how you want to handle this.

Using ancestry.com, I find dates and other info. about her on the 1940 census. So, what should I do?

You have a photo on my memorial and you know who says she was there first so she has a memorial too.
This is not worth a battle so if you move the photo, I will delete.

Mine was there first other was either spelled wrong or moved in

In the obit, Ray is used. So it is his nickname right? On Edit you noted a correction for spelling and I thank you! Those bad mice get in when I am sleeping and make errors!

Thank you! Flowers soften the pain and the kindness of friends means a great deal!
