Grace and Hollis Bridgman
I completed your photo request for the Bridgmans. There is a marker for Hollis, but not for Grace. On Grace's memorial I put a photo of the lot with a note showing where Hollis is. Grace is supposed to be next to him. The date of death on Hollis did not match the marker, but it is the same person.

RE: Robert Murray Donaldson
Hi George. I believe I've completed the info update. Please double-check to make sure we got it right. I hope you don't mind, but I've also acknowledged your contribution in the bio section.
Cheers,
Bryan

Robert Murray Donaldson
Hi George. I was recently reviewing the Spy Hill Cemetery, for which I had entered the majority of the burials. I noticed that you created an entry for Robert Murray Donaldson (125071595) in Feb 2014. I had already created a record for Robert Murray Donaldson (120124771) in 2013.

In order to not have 2 entries for the same person, would you please consider requesting edits to my entry, and then deleting yours, as my entry pre-dates yours?

Thanks,
Bryan

RE: Responses
The rule is that after 21 days, if the request has not be completed, it automatically gets done. They started this because some users abandoned their accounts or they died. If a person's account is building up with messages, and others are screaming their heads off as to why they do not response, then it's pretty much a known thought they are no longer active on the website. Guess one has to do what we have to do. Good luck!

Hello George
Check out the memorial for Frank - I have added a couple photos. Also one for Mary Catherine - still have to find Phoebe and Wealthea - I was out again today to Durban and it was windy and cold so gave up looking for them. Will go again soon when warmer and drier.

RE: Responses
Yes, I forgot the edit email address and maybe I got confused and used the wrong one. Still, you would think they would transfer the email to the other people. Yes, I learned F.A.G. was bought by Ancestry. I use a friends account, cause I'm not paying the money. Also, F.A.G. information is making their way to other websites like Family Search and also on Google. Makes you wonder if a memorial gets changed or gets deleted, does it also it changed or deleted on the other sites? Yes, I have come across some real butt holes and there are some who will not say "please" or "thank you" for anything you may do for them. Have you heard of the 21 Day Rule? You can make Edit Requests to any abandoned memorial and they will take effect after 21 days. So, think about it and use that to your advantage. One can send an abandoned memorial into a "black hole", then create your own. The old one will still be in that same cemetery, but tucked away and out of your hair. Works best when there are no pictures on the memorial.

RE: Reponse
No, I have not received much support from F.A.G. staff. I have used the info@findagrave.com email address to send problems I am having with people who have abandoned their accounts or have died, and in turn, their memorials are abandoned. Others on this site do not know when this is happening and they send endless messages to them. Who's to know? For an example, check out user, T Satterly (46949381). This person has over 281 messages and some people are getting rather upset to say the least. I have told F.A.G. they need to address the problems on this website. I feel abandoned memorials should be put up for "adoption", and any family member, or person who wants to maintain the memorial, should have it transferred to them. I have told F.A.G. to moved memorials from one cemetery to the correct cemetery, and nothing happens. I ask for family transfers, but they stick with the grandparent, gr-grandparent routine. And the memorial? It just sits there controlled by F.A.G. staff, who don't give a crap and never will. I sent them an obit to post to a memorial and if it's not there in one month's time, I'm bitching to them! If everyone would use the info@findagrave.com email address and give your complaints, then maybe something will change and change for the better. Good luck!

Hello! Are you getting any response from Tom Todd on your request you sent? I requested transfers of memorials, but have not heard anything in return.

Have you forgotten about my request to link this memorial to her father - Willard SAMSON?
Please give it your consideration.
George
