I will be out of commission for a little while. Just had a surgery and I'm not feeling so good. They tell me it will take a while to feel normal again. Please bear with me for edits/corrections. Thanks.|
Please allow 30 days for me to complete edits you send to me.
NEW EDIT SYSTEM: Go to your profile page and at the top is a tab called EDITS. There you will find the edits/additions that others have sent to you. There is a drop down box where you can choose to view all edits sent to you and all edits you have sent to others. You should check that tab each time you log on.
This is supposed to be a faster way to do all of the edits at once.
It is intentional that survivors are not listed on the page. See FAG's FAQ page for the guidelines about listing living people.
Please mind your manners and leave a polite message below. Mean or rude people are ignored. Please treat me with the consideration and politeness that you would want for yourself.
Sometimes I check info provided in Edits by others. I try to confirm info that is submitted before I make the changes. If I am unable to do so, I may ask you to provide a source document to prove the changes you want me to make. This is done so I don't keep going back and forth changing details on someone's say so. When I ask for a source, I am looking for a marriage record, bible record, census, or other official document. My goal is to post accurate information on Find A Grave.
Thank you so much to all of the contributors who have helped me over the years. I'm very grateful.

|M C||Another message on Providence Cem,|
You are right, they have removed the map, and yet the photos are the one in Alpharetta. Also, they refer to the correct one in the address. I think someone has done a job on Find A Grave.

|M C||another message re-Providence Cem|
I don't know what happened as I checked my original copies and they showed Alpharetta so someone has changed them to Palmetto. I have corrected this and thank you for noticing the change. I wonder how many more have been changed.

|M C||Message from BUD on Providence Ce. in Fulton-Palmetto & Alpharetta that helped|
RE: Providence Cemetery.
Nope, it was under the right one. This is the third cemetery I know of that someone has written to them, Find A Grave, and had them combine two diffrent cemteries with the same name. In Gwinnett/Dekalb it was Corinth (I live one mile from the one in Gwinnett). It took me four days of photographing and e mails to separate them again. I have the one in KeKalb now complete, and contacted all other memorial owners from that cemetery. Also, I know who the person was that sent in the e mail to Find A Grave that caused that fiasco.
Yours is close to my daughter's home and there were photos on it showing the road going through the cemetery. It is now under Palmetto listing and the cemetery photos with headstones are missing from the Alpharetta Cemetery, and one of them was one I had sent in. I moved all of the one's I put on there in Alpharetta, but I have forgotten the names of the folks that I took photos for, so theirs might still be under the wrong one. Find A Grave should have a safeguard on combining cemeteries from people in the area.
Happy Researching, Bud

|M C||RE: Mashburn duplicates|
That is correct, unfortunately find a grave has combined the duplicate memorials into Palmetto, due in part to the contributor using someone else's photos (Pam) from Alpharetta and adding family info. The contributor I am sure has never been to either cemeteries. The websites polices are changing and I have seen many other duplicates merged incorrectly.
I don't believe any change can be done, but trying may help.
*In addition there is a member of the church at Alpharetta named Don Sutton that is in charge of the cemetery maintenance and burials at Alpharetta that lives on Providence Rd. in Alpharetta, just below the church.
My grandparents, great grandparents, great great grandparents on both sides of my family are buried there. (Chatham, Nix, Bates, DeVore)

|M C||RE: Mashburn duplicates|
I noticed Find A Grave has combined the duplicates in favor of the incorrect cemetery. I suppose because of family pictures & copied pictures from the Alpharetta Cemetery made by another contributor-PLM
Hard to convince Find A Grave.

|Phil||RE: Mattie M May|
Also I like to clear out my phone camera and delete images once they are uploaded so I was just doing that. Maybe someone will want the page someday. I don't know anything about her.
I like the name Mattie because it is my grandmother's name.

|Phil||RE: Mattie M May|
I saw her when I was looking for Rebie May and thought there might be a connection. But she is not in the same lot. I took the photo and didn't want to waste it. So since you had the other Mays, I just thought I would transfer it. I don't want to manage anyone I am not related to if possible. I just like doing the photo requests.
