"PLEASE BE AS KIND TO THE LIVING (FELLOW CONTRIBUTORS) AS YOU ARE TO THE DECEASED. DON'T HURT ONE ANOTHER....BE KIND. IT's JUST AS HARD TO LOSE A LIVING FRIEND. MAYBE HARDER."
PLEASE DON'T START SOMETHING YOU'RE NOT GOING TO KEEP UP. CHECK YOUR EDIT REQUESTS ON A REGULAR BASIS.
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE (FAIRLY) NEW SHORTCUT EDIT SCREEN ON FINDAGRAVE, PLEASE READ THIS NOTE. YOU HAVE AN EDIT BUTTON ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE FOR EDITS DIRECTED TO YOU-YOU WON'T GET AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION. PLEASE CHECK THOSE EDITS.
KEEP IN MIND: We are all immigrants. Before any of us were here, the Native Americans were here first. (Thanks to my friend Wendy for making me so aware of that - so easy to not think of that while researching).
RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen.
As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project our goal is to gather information for county records. We also offer our photos to findagrave.

Horry County is proud to have received South Carolina's "2011 J. Mitchell Graham Memorial Award, the competition's top honor, for it's project to preserve an estimated 450 historic cemeteries in the county's unincorporated areas-approximately one for every 2.5 square miles."
(this quoted portion taken directly from Vol. 22, number 3, p 6, County Focus Magazine, South Carolina Association of Counties).
I remember that old saying "It's easier to plow around a stump" when I work on findagrave. Sometimes it's like that. Most times though, I'm lucky to work with other contributors who welcome contact, check their edit requests regularly, and are cordial. Oh, if we all were like that! Oh, wait, that would be a perfect world... not possible.
The more people we have working together, the fewer people we have to work against. The more we do together, the more we get done. The more we learn from each other, the better our results.
A difficult stone can reveal many secrets with a simple spray of water and toothbrush, or aluminum foil wrap and soft toothbrush to obtain an impression. (See memorial #51880376).
PLEASE no flour, shave cream or chalk.
My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on fag.com, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."

|John Robertshaw||Leila B. Macklen|
I posted the double stone photos for you with the spelling of the last name shown as "Macklen".
I also submitted a suggested edits to correct the last name spelling and the dates to agree with the gravestone. It is up to the creator of the memorial page now to look at the photos of the gravestone and make the changes. I can't fix it because I did not create the memorial page.
|Mark Jebens||RE: 61277011|
I went back and checked my notes, I'm not sure if you checked my caption with the photo but I could not locate Levi's grave marker. There were many in the immediate area; however, the names had long been weathered away. I don't recall who requested my assistance, but they were pleased that I placed the spouse's marker on the webpage, so it served as a reference point for the family plot for further research. As for my family, I have found that technique helpful. Given your note, I had thought you were implying that I put a "Jones" with a "Smith". I feel better knowing it was a within the same family..especially the spouse, since it's a solid lead to locate the patriarch's marker.
|Carolyn Hines Smith||RE: Saluda area|
I have sent a personal email and also a reply to make sure you get this. I am no longer in SC but if I can be of any help please let me know concerning these duplicate memorials.
|JANICE MCCREIGHT||Mildred Thornton Kelly|
I always like to include any and all information I have - so the obituary is appreciated.
|Wimsang||RE: Felkel photos|
You are quite welcome. I just finished adding some more photos for Thomas Milton Felkel,Mary Heaitley Felkel,Viola Felkel,& Winnie Florence Felkel Hays in the same cemetery. They were real close to the other 5 graves. Hope all of this helps you greatly. Wimsang

Yes, back in late 2012 I transferred over 20,000 to Find A Grave because at the time I was too busy to manage them. I regret it, but at least they are really good about making changes.
I live in UK but my mother was born in the West Indies and lived her teenage years in Barbados.
There is now a family history group supported by the Barbados Museum and the Records Office as well as a Facebook group if you are interested.

I think that is the best way to put it - one church and 3 cemeteries. The old church on Ft. Jackson was torn down and the next one was built on Percival Road where there is a "new" cemetery. The old graves from Ft. Jackson were moved to what became known as Old Macedonia Cemetery some miles away off Percival Road. The first Macedonia on Ft. Jackson may still show on an aerial map as does several of the other churches that were moved back in the 1940's.
