Please: Send proof when you send edits. If you've read the FAQ you will see that is what it asks you to do, anyway. Why not do so at the outset? Use the box on the edit tab, and tell how you proved the family connection, or that the information you sent belongs with that person in that particular grave.|
Please do not send edits gleaned from other people's undocumented trees. This is how an endless chain of false information begins. On a membership site it's contained there. But Find A Grave is picked up by google and also by many other sites as fact.
This is Genealogy 101. Proof. Source. Without it, as Ancestry the owner of this site says "It's a myth."
Read the FAQ. Read Community Rules.
Page managers are allowed to make judgment calls. Some things are not covered in the FAQ. I've also been told "If it is not verified you do not have to add it."
Collaboration is working together. That means you share your proof and answer questions I have about it. I go and verify it and if I find more can add more to the page.
If there are conflicts or unresolved questions and I cannot resolve them and you are stone silent then I can't approve it.
So send your proof. Again, the FAQ will tell you the same thing!
Just ran across this quote by the NEHGS:
"In the 19th century, hundreds of towns and counties across the United States published biographical histories—or “mug books.” These can be valuable resources for family historians—providing a great deal of genealogical data and images—however, because the sketches are unsourced and arguably biased, the information should always be taken with a grain of salt."
