Usually only transfer direct-line relatives per FaG guidelines. Those collecting last names or entire families please use Virtual Cem feature.
Since I believe FaG is created to recognize those who came before us please feel free to copy any picture I have taken for personal use. However, some of my memorials have pictures belonging to others. Please check labeling to determine what you copy was actually posted by me. Otherwise you will want to get permission from the actual photographer.
Please submit Edits using link and NOT by emailing. At least 3 times weekly I check for Edits on site. Emails, MUCH less so.
What a wonderful website & what a wonderful way to honor the lives of our ancestors. And thanks and appreciation to those who send Edits to flesh out memorials - always looking for ways to make them better and more complete.
Wish I had more time to be creative in my bio. I would like to have as much done on this before the Butts Bash in Spearfish SD Thanks Sandy. If there are any of this line that you want to transfer, I will take them. I can still send you a note a time or two a year!
RE: Peter A. Ives memorial 148790673 Sandi, Thank you for your reply, and how considerate of you to give preference to the other member's earlier memorial. I have also contacted her. And, I also have encountered some of your same issues of unintentional duplicate entries. Best wishes, Yvonne
Peter A. Ives memorial 148790673 Hello Sandi, Thank you so much for your memorial pages. Peter Amos Ives #148790673 is my g-grandfather, the father of my grandmother, Jeanette Ives Boyll #19794049. (Btw, there is another memorial pg for Peter at #38369848.)First: Peter's date of birth often is seen as 1878, possibly due to the 1880 census, where he is age 2 mos., not 2 yrs. He was born May 24, 1880, as reflected in his WWII draft registration & other places. Second, I would like to request management of Peter's memorial page, or to have a link established to his daughter Jeanette at memorial #19794049, if that can be done going from father to daughter. Thank you, Yvonne (member #47992943)
RE: Phelps Thanks for your good work on Find A Grave. Bill is my second cousin but I did not know him personally, I did not even have Melva on my tree until I just saw your question and added her. I have know knowledge of her....sorry. Thanks again for creating the memorials, it is very helpful for extended family to be able to find them and gain information for their family trees!! Have a wonderful day!!!
RE: Mike & Aleice Thanks very much for making the corrections. It is just so much easier I someone has full names when searching for ancestors. I have learn this in the process of doing out family tree. Especially when you have ancestors with similar names. Can you explain all I would be responsible in this position? I will be looking forward to your email.
