Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your descendants be."
Genesis 15:5

********************

"It is sad when one has to paint a dark picture of another in order to paint a "perfect" picture of themselves."

********************

A short Bio: I've been involved in Genealogy for 40 years. It's been exciting traveling to different states, visiting court houses, libraries, cemeteries. Finding links to tie my family together. This was before computers made everything so easy. I have documented my family back to the 1640's. I value each piece of documentation I've acquired over 40 years. I also value everyone I've met during my research. We've remained lifelong friends. Respect, given & received is very important in Genealogy. I've been a FAG member for over thirteen years. I've worked with many wonderful people in that time. I've met a lot of you at cemeteries. I'm retired & FAG fills a lot of days & evenings when I'm not enjoying the company of my family who are very dear to me.

*******************

I've disabled my message center due to the rude actions of some members on Find A Grave. I can be reached by the edit tab.

*******************

Linking, Transfers, Biography, Duplicates: I find it important to LINK families in death as they were in life. Find A Grave once said they'd like the cemeteries to open like a book. This is what I strive for. I TRANSFER memorials to those requesting transfers unless they are family or a close friend. If you send additions to the BIOGRAPHY section, I give credit to the sender. I welcome notifications for DUPLICATES and remove without hesitation. Find A Grave frowns upon duplicates. If I notify you of a duplicate & it's not remove after 3-4 months, I WILL contact FAG for removal. Have the courtesy to inform me if they are family! I've had many removed that were family. In those cases I request transfers. Find A Grave advises you can always request transfers but duplicates are not permitted & you don't make your own rules.

*********************

No one on FAG has more authority than another. No one is in charge but the curator's of Find A Grave.

***Per FAG: You manage the memorial's you've created but you do not own them. They belong to Find A Grave.

Edits:

***Per Find A Grave:

"We have a soft limit of 40 edits per week over the edit tab and a limit of 20 edits per week over "suggest a correction". Plus 21 days to complete them."

********************

Pictures: You're welcome to use my photo's. Credit is not needed. I see many of my pics on Ancestry which is fine. I'm not a glory seeker. I'm dedicated to Find A Grave but it does not define me. Find A Grave advises if a photo has been posted to memorials I manage, I still have a right to post mine. They advise no one has a right to expect theirs to be exclusive. I don't expect mine to be exclusive on memorials not managed by me. It's a privilege to post to memorials managed by others. Do not abuse that privilege.

********************

Find A Grave Policy: No bullying! Respect is expected at all times in the spirit of Find A Grave. If you are being bullied report to FAG curator's. Take a snap shot. They can't lie their way out of that. No slandering members on your bio page! No cut out obits in the picture section, no names of the living in obits. No obit photo's. If I find cut out obits in the picture section they are removed. Death Certificates are welcome. No posting of memorials of the living. I follow Find A Grave rules. They were made for a reason.

********************

I don't condemn for the amount of memorials a member has. Those who do are worried about the numbers, not the reason we are here in the first place, to document those who have passed before us. If you're so worried that you have to make critical comments about the amount of memorials a member has, then I suggest you work at it. There's a lot of members who have a lot more memorials than I do. Take in consideration how many more years a member has been doing this than you. I know the hard work it takes to photo cemeteries. I've photographed over 71,900 head stone's & I'm proud of it!! I applaud everyone who's work shows you're in it for the right reasons and not for the reasons of the complainers which is the numbers.

********************

Isaiah 40:31

"But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint"
