Bio and Links
I have been working on family history over 60 years! It is very exciting to find new information about my "branches" on Find-A-Grave, when a graver has added the entire obit.

Also would like to say something to other members that never put the whole obituary on the bio. If you don’t want do it right; then don’t do it at all. If you are omitting vital info that family members need to be able to “connect their dots” along their family lines. Many people have the same names, hence without the complete obit, it makes it next to impossible to complete ones family history.
Families looking for their love ones need every detail. So please put the whole obituary in their bio.
Most obituaries are not copyrighted do to the fact they are written by the family and not the newspaper. Newspapers just print it. If the obituaries do not show a name under them with the person who wrote it. That means it was written by the family, so it is not copyrighted and it is public info. This Info is from Legal Genealogist web site.

Vera - So sorry for the loss of your aunt. Of course I can, but it will not have the year engraved yet. I will also put a reminder on my calendar to check in a few months. I remember where they are located.

Would you please transfer Lillian Farster to me as she is my Aunt. I would like to take care of her site. I thank you for adding her on and all you do.

RE: 15206960658
Thank you for the corrections. KC did receive medals for his service in Vietnam.

I am new to this website and I am not familiar with how to make edits and corrections.

The obituary as published in the newspaper has omissions and is a bit confusing as to who KC's mother was. Is there any way I can correct this?

Thank you.

The Ellis family has sent a private email to remove the relationship link that had been calculated incorrectly. Also his military service was in Vietnam, not Korea.
Thank you.

Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?
Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery. Given these exceptions, a memorial created after death will be preferred over a pre-need memorial.

I hope this clears up your concerns. So the memorial from 2014 is the duplicate.
