That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information I applaud you for it that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information byte me

Linda Graff
FAG memorial for Ferdinand/Anna Nickel
I just sent a number of additional children to Ferdinand/Anna/Amanda Nickel memorial that you have posted.
I did not realize that you may not be a relative, and am sorry about that.

I would gladly take ownership of that memorial #37556509 and update it with this info since I am a direct relative.

I am Linda Graff (#47711374)

I/we appreciate the effort to get this into Find A Grave, since it has been many years since we have been to Washington on a genealogy venture.

Best regards,
Linda and Robert (Bob) Graff

Nathan Tyler
Hi, Lorie!

I came to this page because there was find a grave hint for my great grandfather, Nathan Tyler. He died in 1936 in Wolfe County, Kentucky. We do not know much about Nathan because he didn't talk about his family. The story goes that his mother's name was Mary. She worked on a plantation and Nathan and his brother, Tom, were born on the plantation. They got their last name from the plantation owner, Zachary Tyler. We have searched and researched Nathan for years and we never get anywhere except for his life once he married my great grandmother, Rose (Rosetta) Little. Then, today this hint pops up and it lists Alexander Wolf as Nathan's father! Do you know anything about this story?

Thank you!

Find A Grave Memorial# 47883809

Hello. I'll make this very short. I stumbled on your memorial for "Wilhelmina Kistner". This name intersects with my own family research.

It is very unlikely that this is the Wilhelmina I am interested in as my people are not from Missouri but if you have any additional biographical information on this person I would be happy to hear it.

Have a nice day.

Joseph Dunham, #99374769
Hi Lorie,

I am researching Joseph Dunham,

I am looking for any hard proof that he was born in Bakersfield, Vermont, or that he was indeed the son of Jesse Dunham and Lois Hatch.

Joseph is linked as a child to Jesse, who is recorded in the History of Royalton, Vermont, by Mary Evelyn Wood Lovejoy. The problem is, in that genealogy, Jesse's son Joseph is recorded as having married a Pauline Joiner, and dying in Iowa in 1864. Despite this, every single tree I have found online attributes my Joseph to Jesse & Lois.

Do you have any insight into this?? Any leads would be helpful.
