Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been with findagrave for years, and am becoming more and more disheartened with the attitude that some people seem to be perpetuating. This site is becoming less and less about sharing info and helping each other and strangers...and more and more about the number of memorials someone controls, people being anal retentive about rules and lecturing each other on how they think the "right way" is to do things. I thought we were all here to help each other and spread knowledge...apparently not so much anymore. I think i will start exploring other sites where the users arent so spiteful against people who dont do things exactly like they do. I want to help others find their family, spread knowledge and not lecture others, hoard memorials and copyright everything i do so it cant be used...
Sooo here we go.
1. If you want me to add, edit or change something on a memorial...ask me NICELY. That is a basic rule of polite society!
2. I have a full time job, and a life. Therefore i do what i can in my spare time. I will get to things when i can and am happy to do so...but remain POLITE in your requests or you will just get deleted.
3. All my photos are copyright what you will with them and share the knowledge...keep these people's memories alive.
I am sorry for throwing this negativity out there but I am about one more rude stranger from deleting my profile and being done with this site. Why do people have to be so rude?

Rude Requests
Hi Amanda,
I couldn't agree more about people becoming so rude and demanding. I agree wholeheartedly with Linda Keown Franke who posted "Re your bio - please re-think leaving Find A Grave - it leaves the rest of us at the mercy of the rude hoarders."

RE: Done! :)
Thank you Amanda I was searching for another Agnes Martinka. Not sure if this one was a part of the family. I will try to find out. Most of our Martinka's are in Williamson county.
We appreciate all your great work. We should remember and respect our ancestors and all our departed. They had a life and a story. They worked hard and sacrificed so we would have a better life. I love a certain headstone. Glenna June (I forgot her last name). Hers says. I was . . . Somebody. That is so amazing!
Thanks again!

RE: Samuel Bundicks grave is on private land
Thank you for the information. Actually we were aware of this but since we were not related, we never pursue it. With that said, we did not see the cemetery. We drove the area (should be located on the east side of FM Rd 2922, 3.5 miles south of St. Hwy. 97) and even stopped at 2 homes nearby the area and the locals were not aware of the cemetery or location. Internet said it is located near a Clark Cemetery and even that was a cemetery no one had heard of. Without a definite location, that would explain why there are no headstone photos on any of the graves on Find A Grave. If you find out more information, we would be glad to persue this quest. Have a blessed day.

Thank you!
Just wanted to say that I love the message on your profile. I used to love FindAGrave, but now find myself irritated with rude messages demanding this and that.

I no longer have as much time for the site as I used to. I have transferred a memorial to you that I added from an obituary and you added a photo to it of the actual grave.

Thanks for all that you do to help others.

RE: Sister Laura Hatton memorial #95893420
There is no problem posting them. The only thing is that if you want to post more than the limit of five, then you will have to sponsor the page, which will let you post more. Thanks for posting!
