RE: Duplicates for Todd and Tammy Herridk
Hi Bruce, I agree, it is too bad there isn't a "merge" feature that the two managers could use to merge the duplicate with the original.

There is one Find A Grave contributor who has made A LOT of duplicates of memorials that I manage. Some are within days of mine being created, and others are years apart. Bottom line is that she does not bother to look first to see if there I already a memorial. And, if she is using a spreadsheet to add them to save HER time, then that is not fair because it is costing ME time to clean it up. Many of hers have a gravestone photo that SHE took, and when I tell her there is a duplicate and ask her to post her photo to the original memorial she just deletes everything... duplicate memorial and photo and all. That is very mean and selfish, I think. It is people like her who ruin Find A Grave because they obviously have their own agenda.

Ruth W. Prusse Lundquist
Howdy Bruce,

Going over my edit request this morning, came across your request to change Ruth W. Prusse Lundquist's death year from 1914 to 1918. I wanted to let you know why I declined your request without leaving you hanging, wondering why! I located her obituary and created a bio for her on her memorial; published in the Deseret News, 14 May 2001 it states: "Ruth was born on October 12, 1914, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Wilhelm Heinrich Prusse and Johanna (Conradi) Prusse. Also, the correct year according to her headstone, U.S. Public Records Index, Volume 2; and Social Security Death Index. I really appreciate the time you took to keep these memorials accurate.

Annie :)

RE: Rose Wanous of South Dakota
O.K. now I remember~ WFLA Fraternal Herald, January, 1995. It was just a short obit. Rose Wanous Lodge No. 30, Lidgerwood, North Dakota. Sister Rose Wanous was born January 28, 1922 at Ross and died October 17, 1994. Funeral services were held October 21, with interment at Sisseton Cemetery. Survivors include her husband, LeRoy.

RE: Birthplace of Rose Wanous
Boy I'm sorry I can't even find her, am I the manager of her site? I typed in her name and none seemed right, you'll have to refresh my memory, I do dozens of these every day and just can't remember which one this could be. Luella

Gordon B Moody
thanks for creating a memorial for Gordon Bishop Moody. I noticed his obituary has the birth place of Woodrow, Utah which conflicts with the birth place of Abraham, Utah in an autobiography that I have that was written by Gordon. I realize both of these areas are rural in Millard County and I'm not sure that it matters, but thought I would point that out for future reference. I'm sure this will be a problem in Family Tree, etc etc.

thanks for your efforts

Hi: It appears that you might have relationship to the Bowman's and, if so, would the changes be better handled by a transfer of the memorial(s)to you for updating? I will await your reply and have a good day.

Thank you for sending the message to correct Colleen's memorial. I mistook Harper as her father's middle name. I hate to make errors in family history. Thanks again!

Eline Enebo
Thank you for letting me know that Elaine was incorrect! Because Elaine is more common than Eline, I imagine someone thought "Elaine" was correct when they documented the cemetery listing.

It makes sense to me that Elaine would have been the Americanization of Eline. Not Norwegian however to be an authority.

Thanks again.
