August 2015 Update: After an absence, I am working my way through edits, transfers and deletion requests. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
I try very hard to thank each person that completes SAC's for me, even if they ask me for sources or leave out or miss part of it. If I've missed you, it was not intentional.
The "In it for the numbers" folks: I've heard this term used negatively, but those that transcribe massive numbers of folks for us, whatever the source are the angels of this site. Please keep it up. I have folks I need to find and I can't find them without you. So thank you for all you do!
Thank you to everyone who's transferred a family member to me, most OOG. Every transfer is a gift, but also a responsibility. I promise to be a good steward. I've made my "Biographies Finished" and Biographies Needed" virtual cemeteries visable, so those that want to see if I've done anything with what they entrusted to me can see where I'm at in that process. I originally created those just to help me track, but realized that might be useful to those who've transferred to me.
A little more:
I'm not offended when you:
Deny me a transfer (I'm ALWAYS asking for a "gift") Ask me more about how I'm related Ask me if I have a source for this or that Give me suggestions, tips or point out an error
If I have extensive changes to make, feel free to state it's a temporary transfer and let me know the deadline. Even if it's my second great grandmother that I feel emotionally tied to because of family stories and photos, I will ALWAYS honor the courtesy by transferring it back in a timely manner within your specified time limit.
Paul & Mabel Rupnow - 97763050 & 97763274 May I have your permission to download the gravestone photo of Paul & Mabel Rupnow? I would like to use it on my family tree on Ancestry -- with photo credit to you, of course. Thank you for your consideration. --Barb
Wimer, Lydia E I have a photo up for her, but in checking it I realize that someone messed up with the dates. It is either 1848 or 49 on her marker, yet her Find A Grave page states 1846. Maybe you can figure this out? Sue
Gregory/Pratt/Douglas Hi Pauline, Asking you to fix a mistake of mine that I am not able to do. I sent you an Edit a while ago to link Milton H. Gregory to his wife Lydia L. Gregory. Just figured out that I put her last name wrong, you got it right so please delete on his memorial the link for Lydia L. Gregory Thanks very much, Sue Stay safe with this snow.
Bihler/Beeler Hello Pauline - We need to do something about the 2 Henry Bihler/Beeler memorials at Greenwood Memorial Terrace. I made the first one March 18, 2012 #87004490 for Henry Bihler in response to my mom’s purchasing a headstone for him a few years before. He was her gg uncle and she remembered visiting his grave site as a child with her mom and grandmother. (She purchased several headstones in her later years for various relatives without one.) You made the second one Oct 5, 2012 #98325347 for Henry Beeler (most likely from cemetery records?) The problem: The headstone says Bihler, as that is how Henry’s parents and ancestors spelled it – and the only way my mom knew it. However, according to my searching, Henry changed his name to Beeler somewhere along the line. Margie D #47627892
Welcome Back Glad to see you back on the site. As you can see your memorials in the Masonic cemetery in Tumwater were transferred to our account so we could make the edits instead of sending them in. If there are any you would like transferred back just let me know.
