RE: RE #93010985 Maria Baumann Boesch, et al
Dear Dave,
There has not been a possibility of me offering any more of my time, energy, care or expertise in the way of data or corrections, since it would just be officially declined, but used anyway.

RE: RE #93010985 Maria Baumann Boesch, et al
I am happy that you got my point, and that you appreciate my accurate new data/corrections, but, again, I feel that I must say that it is a slap in the face for you to have used my input and taken the credit for yourself. That is not a decline, it is a pirating, caps or no caps. (The inscription is in caps, with no comma after "Lo"; I offer extremely accurate work, and most doing this tend to accurately represent what is on each individual stone.)
This was wrong thinking, and it was insulting to me in the damaging of my credibility.

Dear Dave,
Thank you for your response. Actually, I believe my input was the part of the inscription that was not yet on the page: "Here rest in God." And, yes, like a lot of genealogy freaks, I also transcribe the inscriptions exactly as the type is on the stones. But I don't expend time just changing upper and lower case to all caps if there is no additional data that I can offer at the time. So, in actuality, the input WAS accepted.
So, I have been inputting the epitaphs, quotes or blessings from the stones as I go because I think that it is of interest what each person choose for their inscription. And, Find A Grave has that category to be filled in should the info be available.

I very much like Oscar Wilde's: Pardon me for not getting up.

I have just received other declines of the same nature; the inscriptions are right there to be seen in the photos, obviously accurate, yet the managers do not flesh out their memorials. I throw up my hands!
Again, your communication is very much appreciated.
All the best,

Hi Dave,
Just wondered why the edits I submit are being added onto the memorials just fine, but the edit notices in my box indicate that they are being declined, which makes me look unfortunate.
I am glad to submit accurate and verifiable edits (so far about 800) throughout Find A Grave, but would appreciate the correct button to be clicked in order to accurately reflect my work.
Thank you.

Hi Dave,

I found another member of my family. Caroline H.
Tammen she was the mother of my great grandmother, Carrie Tammen Wilde. Carrie is the one we can't find. Carrie was married to Ernst C. Wilde on Sept 1888. She died 2 June 1895 in Chicago. We have no idea where she is buried.

Thanks for giving me the grave memorial for our Great Grandfather, Ernst C. Wilde.

RE: Van Der Gust
Thank you so much. I am new at this so if I find any information on the others I will let you know. I am in search of my Grandfathers Darwin's mother Janka Terpstra but in the middle of looking a friend found this information. Keep up the wonderful work you are doing .. You are a total blessing.

Van Der Gust
Just brousing around the looking at the Van Der Gust and I was wondering if you know if any of the others are related to my Great Grand Parents. I am new at this so any help is welcomed. This is so exciting for me
