Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT look at my contributor numbers as a FAG hoarder... those numbers are due to hard work, photographing completely local cemeteries and adding data for you to locate your ancestors. My area does not have a local historical society, so I do this so YOU can find your family ancestors !!
DUPLICATES: ONE of my BIGGEST pet peeve is duplicate memorials!! PLEASE LOOK FIRST by doing a thorough search before you create a memorial. Type in the name in the search to see if a memorial already exists. Be cautious of first and last name spellings.
HOWEVER: if YOUR duplicate was created AFTER mine, FAG policy is that the newest duplicate be removed. So, in all fairness, if you would kindly remove your duplicate.
I have created memorials from local obituaries that do not have a burial placement. {Very common these days with cremations and no burials}
Findagrave does not offer a lot of selections in their 'drop down' tab. The tab for "unknown" most often fits the category.

What has happened is that often times at a later date, a volunteer has located a grave marker in a cemetery that they have photographed, created a memorial; BUT a previous memorial already exists... created but categorized as "unknown".

So, when some one has created an "unknown" burial,.... and the later one appears, .....WHICH ONE STAYS????

I had been asked to delete my original "unknown burial placement" from the creator of the second memorial (that was later located in a cemetery).... WHICH ONE STAYS????? My solution,..... contact FAG administrator and request a "merge" of the two memorials.

What should have occurred, is the two creators work together. Put 1st memorial into the proper cemetery; have 2nd creator post grave marker onto the 1st memorial, then delete their duplicate. If there was a whole lot of data on both entries, request the merger via FAG administrator.
FAMILY LINKS: I feel it is important to link families.
I am happy to link family members when you request by using the 'Edit' tab.

Before I approve an 'edit', I try to validate your information before I click 'approve'

If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "suggestion" tab to send me the information that could be added into the "bio section" of a memorial.
TRANSFER MANAGEMENT: If a memorial is of my family, I will not transfer.
I don't mind doing transfers, but one time had a FAG member request a transfer of ALL of the particular name from a about 18 of them!!!!!! That is way too extreme and not necessary.
For your extended family members, you may consider adding Virtual Cemeteries to your contributor page.

Thank you for making the time to take a photo of my grandparents resting place in Marinette, WI. I don't live there anymore and don't visit to often, so it's nice to be able to see it and visit virtually.

You left me the message....

"please see William Turcotte as father of Louis:"

Is my memorial for William Adolph Turcotte #134194386 a duplicate of the above memorial? If so, I can delete it.

RE: Added photo for Elsie Pape
I was so thrilled to find the granddaughter of Elsie. I just could not pass up that photo, especially when I saw the names on the back. I always feels so sad when I see old photos in shops. Thanks for your very kind message!

There are numerous cemeteries in the municipal district surrounding Salmon Arm, I will continue to research them as well.
Good luck in your endeavors!

Added photo for Elsie Pape
I added a baby picture of Elsie Olmstead Pape #107796676 that I found in an antique shop in Door Co. WI. Because you had added the obit for Elsie, I was able to return the picture to her granddaughter! On the back of the photo is written:
My baby Elsie Fay Olmstead. Rhoda P. Stuart Olmstead. I note the obit has her middle initial R. and the entry has O. I am not family, but just wanted to share this beautiful picture.
