Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT look at my contributor numbers as a FAG hoarder... those numbers are due to hard work, photographing completely local cemeteries and adding data for you to locate your ancestors. My area does not have a local historical society, so I do this so YOU can find your family ancestors !!
DUPLICATES: ONE of my BIGGEST pet peeve is duplicate memorials!! PLEASE LOOK FIRST by doing a thorough search before you create a memorial. Type in the name in the search to see if a memorial already exists. Be cautious of first and last name spellings.
HOWEVER: if YOUR duplicate was created AFTER mine, FAG policy is that the newest duplicate be removed. So, in all fairness, if you would kindly remove your duplicate.
I have created memorials from local obituaries that do not have a burial placement. {Very common these days with cremations and no burials}
Findagrave does not offer a lot of selections in their 'drop down' tab. The tab for "unknown" most often fits the category.

What has happened is that often times at a later date, a volunteer has located a grave marker in a cemetery that they have photographed, created a memorial; BUT a previous memorial already exists... created but categorized as "unknown".

So, when some one has created an "unknown" burial,.... and the later one appears, .....WHICH ONE STAYS????

I had been asked to delete my original "unknown burial placement" from the creator of the second memorial (that was later located in a cemetery).... WHICH ONE STAYS????? My solution,..... contact FAG administrator and request a "merge" of the two memorials.

What should have occurred, is the two creators work together. Put 1st memorial into the proper cemetery; have 2nd creator post grave marker onto the 1st memorial, then delete their duplicate. If there was a whole lot of data on both entries, request the merger via FAG administrator.
FAMILY LINKS: I feel it is important to link families.
I am happy to link family members when you request by using the 'Edit' tab.

Before I approve an 'edit', I try to validate your information before I click 'approve'

If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "suggestion" tab to send me the information that could be added into the "bio section" of a memorial.
TRANSFER MANAGEMENT: If a memorial is of my family, I will not transfer.
I don't mind doing transfers, but one time had a FAG member request a transfer of ALL of the particular name from a about 18 of them!!!!!! That is way too extreme and not necessary.
For your extended family members, you may consider adding Virtual Cemeteries to your contributor page.

I did a search for my maiden name, and was surprised to see my father's 1/2 sister listed as the first one. You created the listing. I just wanted to say thank you. I never knew her, but am trying to complete my dad's family history.

RE: Dorothy Marie Bennett Rhoat (# 167440236)
Thanks again. Also wanted to mention that Dorothy's father John was 2nd husband to my great-grandmother, Isabelle Barber Edgar-Bennett. I have additional info on John as well as a ton on the Isabelle if you're interested.

Best regards, Joe

Thank you very much for promptly editing her memorial. Nice to see that one family unit is a little closer to being completely connected.

Sincerely, Joe

By the way, the Norton graves say they were buried in the Norton Family Plot. Joseph Norton and his wife Ida were described a pioneers of the area, and had lavish funerals. Seems likely they had gravestones. Perhaps the stones have sunk into the ground.

Perhaps you already know this, but according to husband Harry VerVelde's Sheboygan Press obituary he was buried in Sunrise Memorial Gardens located at Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I would guess that his wife Mary was also buried there? (You've done great work on the Peter Wondergem family!)

Hi - I did see that, but I know for sure that person did not have the correct information. Thanks for making this change!

RE: Marie Price
No problem Marie, I also Have added a Albert Cooke Sr. that was buried right next to her. Then I have a few more Cookes to add that wouldn't load that day. They were located right next to them.
