Bio Photo Pet peeve of the Month: "UNKNOWN BURIALS placed in a cemetery where one already exists causing duplications" Read the guidelines people. They are simplified and self-explanatory. You have 30 days to find the final resting place. If you place your unknown burial into a cemetery where a memorial already exists YOUR memorial is the duplicate and YOURS will be Deleted/Merged. Help clean up Find A Grave by doing a little research on your end before you decide to add an unknown memorial. There are many websites out there that are free and all you have to do is research!

Find A Grave's FAQ's/Guidelines/Rules.
All members are expected to follow them and abide by them A J Marik Nov 30, 2001.

Per Katrina 09/15/2015 "Correcting a name (on the memorial) that is wrong on a stone":
If there is direct primary documentation that a name or date is incorrect on the headstone, then add the correct information to the fields provided on the memorial page. An example of direct primary documentation is a birth certificate that proves the birth year on the headstone to be incorrect. Add a note to the memorial page that briefly documents how the stone is known to be incorrect. It is best to research and check multiple resources to verify your findings.

I love getting information on the memorials that I manage. I try to verify that it is correct before I honor a request. At times I will ask for sources as to where the information came from so if asked do not be offended. If I declined your request I put an explanation as to the reason(s) why. If you question that decline and have not sent supporting documentation or have a way to respond back to you I will ignore your request.

If you sponsor a memorial that I manage, if it is not in my family I will automatically transfer that memorial to you.

**************************************************
Known Burials verses Unknown Burials: Please, do not move your Unknown Burial or a memorial from an incorrect cemetery into the correct cemetery and then demand that the contributor delete their correctly placed memorial. Find A Grave states a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location and they will merge those memorials into the correctly placed memorial

**************************************************
Duplicates: I am the caretaker of some of IWPP's memorials. If you find a memorial that has been duplicated let me know and I will get it deleted as soon as possible. Per Find A Grave Guidelines I have to merge those duplicates with the original good record.

**************************************************
Transfers: I have received on the same day contributors asking to have the same memorial transferred to them, one had a closer relationship then the other but the other had asked first. Emails got really ugly between the two and they included me in them so.... since we cannot please everyone I am only adhering to the four generation rule (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). You will need to state your relationship or the request will ignored.

As the guidelines state the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

A wonderful way to gather all your ancestors together and achieve that goal is by setting up a virtual cemetery.

I would like to thank all contributors and photographers for all that you have done for me and for FindaGrave. You are very much appreciated!

Have Fun and Happy Hunting!
