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!

It has to be the same!
After looking at the picture that you have and looking at the dates that you could read it has to be the same person!

On it has her name as Sclemma C. and if you look at the picture it has to be it, right? Her name was spelled many different ways (marriage certificate, census reports, etc) but I was told it was a small cube grave and the entrance had a large tree with a wooded arch.

RE: West Creek Cemetery, OK
I actually found her info on a Oklahoma website I've been on many many times. I'm not sure how I missed it but it isn't on Find A Grave yet. Very exciting day after many months of nothing! {Sclemma C. 7-27-1984 to 7-21-1910} I will see if I can submit for a photo. I appreciate you getting back to me! Thank you :)

West Creek Cemetery, OK
Hello, My name is Cheryl and I have been searching for my grandmother. I finally found her baby that died and she is buried in West Creek Cemetery, Major County in Oklahoma. My grandmother died just 4 years later and I have yet to find her site. My grandfather did visit her grave around 1965-1970 and paid someone $100 to watch over her stone so I know there has to be one somewhere. I came across this name #113490468 in the same cemetery and was wondering where the 'Clementine' came from because I can only see Nichols from the picture. I really appreciate any help or information you can give me so I can one day find her grave.
Much Thanks! Cheryl

RE: John Collins 82345594
Gone Gravin,
You are more than likely right that I made the memorial of my 2x great grandpa (John, Luther, Nelson, Bennie, Me) before I found out where he was buried. When I joined find a grave about five and half years ago I worked hard at making memorials for my family. I would do a general search of that person and if they did not have a memorial then I made one and as I did the research to find where they were buried I would go back and add the cemetery. I usually do not look to see if someone had made one in the between time. Sometimes, as I am linking them with family I find out that someone had made one. I would contact them to ask to delete or see if they would transfer and I would delete mine. It really does not matter to me who made a memorial first but that one is made for that person. I do work hard at making my family memorials look nice by adding photos and bios for the family. I do realize now that people search a cemetery to see if a person is there and not look so much to see if a memorial is already made, which causes these kinds of conflicts. Find A Grave has many uses and different meaning to each person. We all play an important part in making it a great community. I thank you for your consideration and respect your choice. Sincerely Brad Collins
