Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please take a few minutes to read the site's Frequently Asked Questions (sometimes referred to as Help With Find A Grave). In addition to being the site rules, they also contain information on features you may not be familiar with. They have been updated numerous times since the takeover, the most recent being January 15th.

Any edits sent need to utilize the appropriate choice(s) on the Edit tab. The sixth option is for edits that don't fit anywhere else. These are usually done within a few days. Edits posted to my wall will be deleted and will any nasty posts. All declined new-style edits are rechecked and submitted to administrators immediately. Old style edits (usually duplicate messages) are forwarded after the 30 day allowance or immediately following a refusal.

Deception gets you nothing. Moving a 'burial unknown' into a cemetery then asking the creator of the correct one to remove their 'duplicate' is deception. Back-dating a memorial is a deception. If I accidently make a duplicate, I am willing to remove it, but if the situation is suspicious, I will ask administrators to review the 'previous' one and merge or delete as they deem appropriate.

Sending out a huge thanks to J. R. Sents for all you do!

Also sending out a HUGE thanks to everyone doing their edits! So many push their management responsibilities off on admins. Thanks for taking care of your own memorials. If anyone has memorials they don't want to manage, please transfer then to Find A Grave so they can be tended properly.

Several of us have adopted counties and are working to clean them up. Thanks to all those who go the extra mile knowing the negativity they will likely encounter along the way!

Here are some links that may be helpful in your Find A Grave hobby and other research projects.

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
And the old life that we lived so fondly together
Is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other,
That we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way
Which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes
That we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
That it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort,
Without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
Somewhere very near, just round the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be
As it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting
When we meet again!

-Henry Scott Holland (1847-1918)

Picture of Grave
Gone Gravin,

Thank you so much for the picture of J. Rolla Huffer's Grave. I really appreciate it.

Also, by Chance- do you know what the inscriptions says on it-I can hardly read it. Any ideas you have on it would help me.

Thanks again,

Betty (South) Young

I will try my best to remember that. Yep, I'm up in the D's, but still a long way to go. But I will try to do some edits every day and it should only take about, oh, 30 or 40 years!

See ya soon!

RE: Pvt John Babb
I will apologize for not looking at the memorial at first. If I would have done that, I would have seen the defacing. I normally think on the lines that if there is a request that there is no photo already on the memorial. Lesson learned to look at the memorial first. I do have a photo (undefaced) along with other Babb Family members that I will post when I get a chance to upload them.

RE: Declined edits
You're very welcome, I enjoy doing the edits. It makes the memorials more complete and accurate. Just let me know if you get overwhelmed! I'll be glad to see you when you get home, take care and be careful!

RE: Caolyn Farmer
Fair enough. No, I don't have any other info. Just seems an UNlikely name. How would you pronounce it?
