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.

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.

Hello! Carl was my husband's grandfather and the great-grandfather of my children. If you do not have any particular attachment to his profile, would you please transfer it to my care?
Thank you.

RE: Mildred Beal
Glad I could help.

I agree with you 100% about your bio. It irks me to know end when people add a obit under the flower section. They just want credit for adding flowers instead of doing the correct thing.

Have a great rest of your day.
