|News December 2013|
FindAGrave has implemented a new way of handling edits. You no longer get an e-mail in most cases. Go to your "Contributor Tools" and see if the tab that says "Edits" has a number next to it. If so, those are pending edit requests.
Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.)
I am giving priority to edits done the "new" (Dec 2013) way using the individual options for dates, names, etc. rather than the old-style "Suggest any other correction or addition". I recognize the deficiency of not being able to add a note to me with the new-style. The beta testers lobbied to have that removed. If you think it should be restored, go to the forums and lobby for it.
I have entered a number of memorials from cemetery registers. I know these are incomplete (and possibly incorrect.) You may send SACs as fast and frequently as you like. You do NOT need to limit yourself to 20/week or any fixed number per day.
I am more than willing to consider the transfer of any memorials I have entered to others who have a closer relationship, especially if the intent is to improve the data here instead of just collecting relatives. Please state your relationship in the SAC when requesting a transfer. If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.)
And please don't tell me the reason you want management is so you can link to parents and spouse. It makes me think you either don't know how to use Suggest a Correction to request such updates or you doubt my ability to create the link.
Again, please don't send corrections to my e-mail. Use the Edit/Suggest a Correction on the memorial.
I (may) have removed my e-mail from normal display since that seems to be the only way to avoid having transfer requests or other corrections sent directly to that address. If you want to contact me for another reason, I use gmail and my ID there is billroha.
I normally make changes from Suggest a Correction within 24 hours. Sometimes it may be longer if I'm on an extended trip. If it gets near the 30-day maximum time, feel free to send another Suggest a Correction.
Earlham Cemetery photographs:
At one point local photographers had whittled the list down to 10 requests.
11/22/12 - 374
12/20/12 - 151
3/29/13 - 194
3/31/13 - 154
8/26/13 - 194
(Another contributor has photographed every memorial at Earlham Cemetery and is now in the long process of adding them. Once he finishes, I may take another look at checking out any remaining photo requests.)
A pet peeve is misspelling "William". As of March 3, there were 1713 with 3Ls instead of 2. I sent updates for all of them. Status is:
3/11 911 pending, 7 declined
(The declined are from people who couldn't see there was a change. When explained to them, the change was made.)
From the Find A Grave FAQs:
What are your memorial naming conventions?
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank)
I naively assumed that knowing the FindAGrave standards for names would make a difference to some. Lesson learned. For those who care:

I am Lynn Huidekoper and I have done extensive work on the Huidekopers both here and in Holland. I am updating my files. Who is Grace Huidekoper who died in 2004 and is buried in the Greendale Cemetery in Meadville??

I suppose it is a bunch of edits but I took 120 photos. Glad you don't seem to mind. Enjoy your travel!

Thanks for adding the family links. I don't think I'm connected, but I hate to waste good info. ~~Carol
|Joyce Worsham||RE: Ignore previous edit of name, thanks|
Never too old to learn something "new". Thanks. Are you aware that you have duplicate memorials at East View & Oakland cemeteries. Oakland is adjoining East View.
|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: Louise Vanderpool|
Thank you for the info!! Actually didn't know how to do that. Appreciate it :)

Correction completed on my ancestor..Peace. Donna
I would like you to please transfer the following memorials to me: Frank H. Grabemann (12711775), William Grabemann (12711782), Sophia Grabemann (12711784), and Huldah Grabemann (12711779). These are buried in Lutherania Cem, Richmond, IN; others below buried elsewhere.
These are my direct ancestors so I shouldn't have to PROVE anything to anyone if I would say "I am related to ....". Especially someone that has no interest in the gravestones of the persons they took pictures of. I am NOT out collecting graves. I wish to honor those who make up my DNA and I believe that it is an descendant's obligation to do so.
Thus, "I am related to Franz Heinrich Grabemann".
Franz / Frank Grabemann*
is my maternal gr-gr-gr-grandfather
F. H. Wilhelm 'William' Grabemann*
/ Sophia* my gr gr grandparents
/ Huldah* my step gr gr grandmother
Theodore Franz Wilhelm Grabemann Sr.* /
/ Margaret Modler* my gr grandparents
/ Emma C. Meyer* step gr-grandmother
Theodore Frank William Grabeman Jr.* /
/ Dorothy J. Schlagheck* my grandparents
Janet Lee Grabeman
/ Richard Eugene Duke* my parents
John William Timothy Richard Duke
Of the above 12 persons, the only remaining living of them is my mother and myself. Six of them I knew when they were alive. Primogenitor wise, I am the first direct heir of Franz Heinrich Grabemann, even though I have older cousins.
* have Find A Grave Memorial #s.
John William Duke
