Bio and Links
I first became interested in family history almost 25 years ago and was quickly bitten by the "genealogy bug". In the past 25 years I have done extensive research not only on my own family ancestry, but I have worked on the family history of countless others, as well.

I try to make sure the information I enter is correct, but sometimes records are conflicting, etc. If you have different information on any of the memorials I have put up or manage, please let me know. Also please have some kind of documentation on which you're basing your information, if possible.

Hopefully, the information we enter here will be a help to others who are researching their ancestors, looking for long-lost relatives, etc.

Happy ancestor hunting!

RE: Re photo for Claude Braswell
Your welcome ! I am glad I got the request bc both Braswell graves were quite covered with grass that had started to completely cover them so they needed some TLC! I cut most of the grass away, as much as I could with just a pocket knife! They are at least Readable now! Next trip I will take some gardening shears and a little paint brush to wipe away the dirt out of the creases! I will try and update the pics afterwards! Have a goodnight/Day!

Research each edit?
You say it would only take me 5 minutes to research the information that you want added to the memorial.
I currently have over 150 pending edits. If I spend 5 minutes researching every one, that would be over 750 minutes, or 12.5 hours. And of course, there will be more added tomorrow. At times, I've received as many as 300 edits in a day for days in a row.
I suppose I could just blindly accept all edits without care as to whether they are right or wrong. If I did that, some of the edits accepted today would have been:
linking a woman as her own mother;
linking a man as his sister's father;
a violation of Find A Grave's naming conventions;
a link to a Burial Unknown (man who died in 1852 so not a recent death and an improper use of Find A Grave); and
dates that would have made a baby born to a six-year-old mother.

My apologies for caring about accuracy.
Diehard.

Re: Documents
Since you have Gmail, perhaps Google Drive? Amazon also offers free cloud storage.

Documents
It is odd that both Shutterfly and Flickr consider census images as "copyrighted material" since the census was produced by the U. S. government and is not subject to copyright. Others uploaded census images to Shutterfly as recently as March so this must be a recent change to their policy

As Find A Grave doesn't allow any other document than death certificates, the items should not be added to the memorial, even temporarily.

Photo request for Chastina Jones
Since there's already a photo for memorial 93041417, is your photo request for a different angle of this headstone?

Declined Edits
kentuckywoman2,
Refer to https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#169: "If you have official documentation for the update but have been declined, please send the update again under "suggest any other correction or addition," adding source and documentation that proves the update."

As you can see, the onus is on you to provide the documentation, which you have not done.

Please send a link to the actual document via the 6th option on the Edit tab. If the document is behind a pay-wall or one that is in your possession, you can upload it to a free hosting site (such as Shutterfly or Flickr) and send that link.

Diehard.

RE: Virginia June Blair
Sandie,

I had a reply from Lloyd (you were cc'd as well) but he was unable to confirm his earlier info, so I have linked Virginia to John Blair as her father, and added a note respecting Cecil (Dresden) Blair as her mother. Let me know if you think any further edits are needed.

Thanks for your help in getting this memorial as correct as possible,

Mark
