RE: Augustus Funk (#132928097)
Thanks for your answer. It's good to know that there's a reason that I can't request a photo of the stone even if I don't understand the reason :-). Since there is no photo of his stone, what kind of abuse could be involved in requesting it? I'll understand if you take my question as rhetorical. Thanks again for your help.

Believe his wife was Elizabeth L. Flanagan, daughter of Stephen Flanagan and wife Amanda Carr. They're together on the 1880 census in Philadelphia.

Do you know why FG does not allow a tombstone photo request for this record? Do you have any control over it? Thanks.

RE: St Andrews and Baptist cem
growing up I learned a lot about that cem. the old care taker Bruce is a family friend. That cem is not impossible to make into two. My family and I own about 20 lots in the Baptist part. (we paid the Baptist church for them. most of the cem is st Andrews. I know some of the records were destroyed in a fire years ago at the home of the person who had the records. my parents are in the Baptist side (where the steps are) and the grave next to my father is the st Andrews. It is a line going down. you just need to know where the line is that is where I was willing to help you with that line. I am so sorry I offered to help to get the records right. I am asking that you please make a note somewhere that these family members are in the Baptist side. my father George Conover, my mother Mary Conover and my brother George Conover Jr. all be put in the Baptist records please along with my great grand father Joseph Filer and his wife Georgeanna Joanna Filer, Ethel May Conover 1917-1918 and Harry Kenard Conover 1920-1920 both of which are buried next to the Filer. maybe there can be a section added on the master about the two different parts

Linking Malfunction - Mem # 76239517
Dear Russ,

While linking Porwoll relatives to one another, I had occasion to attempt to Link 76239517, Bernice Porwoll, to her husband 76239518, Clement T Porwoll, whom I had just submitted my 'auto e/c' to Link him to his parents only.

Upon submittal, the computer claimed there was a pending 'auto e/c' Linking 'spouses' and that I didn't have to submit 'another'. Having gotten this message once before some months back, I went back to Clement's memorial and followed procedure as if I were going to submit a Link from him to her and went to my 'just submitted' pending Link from Clement to his parents, going to my Contributor list of Submitted/Pending 'auto e/cs' and Deleted my pending Link from him to his parents.

I then went back and submitted a new 'auto e/c' to Link Clement to both his parents and his wife and the system accepted it.

My point is that the system claimed there was a pending Link between the spouses, when all I had submitted originally was the 'auto e/c' to Link Clement to his parents, which seems, in this Contributor's mind to be a programming error. The system should have noticed that I there was not only a difference in the submitted memorial numbers, but also a difference in the relationship(s), 'parents' vs 'spouse'.

Just though you would want to know... :-)

Thank you for all your diligent work at F-A-G, and consideration of my above 'malfunction' notification. Also, thanks again for your speedy reply and repair of the F-A-G Tombstone Logo problem during the last F-A-G/Ancestry software upgrade several weeks back.

May you and yours, and all the F-A-G staff enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Always, in FindAGrave brotherhood,

Merge Memorials
I created a memorial for John Mix # 126687691 in 2014. I got a message today from a family member, who says I created a double but she would like to have mine merged with the other if possible because it has more information. The earliest memorial is # 36254466 made in2009. I thought I would ask before I delete mine.

I have located what seems to be a duplicate memorial. The older memorial is incomplete and the manager has disabled messaging. The newer memorial is very well done and more complete.

It is South-Southwest of Shinglehouse and South-Southeast of Myrtle.

If it was Northwest it would be by Ceres.

Inactive Contributors
1. Is there any way to tell if a memorial contributor is active or not?

2. Are there procedures to transfer memorials if a) contributors become inactive or b) die?

3. When there are duplicate memorials, mostly those I notice with no biography, does the website eventually delete the newer one?

Thank you for your consideration.

None to be Forgotten
Who to contact?
I work on Find A Grave every day and have thus far entered almost 50,000 memorials. The thing I find most frustrating is not being able to find a contact for a certain question! What's the trick?

I was informed a couple days ago that over 165 memorials were created in the wrong cemetery because of errors in the county's records. Is there a way for Find A Grave to correct this (I can send an attachment of the list) or must each one be changed individually?

Thanks! -Cindy Kay

Josiah Fowler

I was notified that you had duplicated my 21APR2006 entry for Josiah Fowler. Since you had more information, I have deleted my entry. His headstone mentions "Coslin Zouaves", but I have not been able to locate any info on them. I suspect they were a PA unit. Do you have anything on them???

Just started using the app and I love it for quickly viewing memorials with no pictures. I'm puzzled though that many of the cemeteries on the website do not appear on the app. Am j doing something wrong?
