Memorials 40862498 and 7258051 are duplicates. Because these were created by FindaGrave, not a contributor, I can't provide this information via the memorial pages.

Asher N Hicks

First, thank you for all the amazing work you have done for genealogy and Find a Grave.
After yeears of bush beatibg, due to lots of contridictory information, I have absolute proof that Asher is my great grandfather.
Would you please transfer him to me?
I am just starting trying to get my relatives so other family members can find them easily.
Thank you, Kathy Walsh

Too many advertisements!
Hello, would you please consider helping all of your contributors by eliminating about half of the advertisements that appear on each findagrave page? It sure does take up far too much bandwidth and slows down the page refresh A LOT! Pretty Please? I see that Mr. Tipton has his messages disabled. Perhaps you may have some sway with him on the subject.

Hello Russ, I have been a member for almost
5 years. I have worked, researched, added so much
information to the memorial's I maintained, since being on Find A Grave. Today Jan 4, 2017, I had nearly 3,000 memorial's I have managed, looked up
the information, maintained and now only manage 2,400, all of the work I have done is gone.
I have never been so disappointed, than today. I have worked my tail off gathering information, those memorial's, so many, I received through the family first policy of Find A Grave. I have been researching for 30 plus years, historian, and It feels like a slap in my face, I did all of the work on those page's and at the bottom of my page's that I maintained, all it says now on those page's that I did maintain, and my work, which is on those page's, it only says now created by, no credit, no acknowledgement, that I even did the work, it now looks like my work which I added to the memorial's was done by the one who created the memorial, How? Why? I don't know what happened to the page's I maintained. After today because of that, losing the page's I have worked so hard on, and adding my information to those page's, all for nothing, so someone else can take credit for all that I have done for those memorial's makes me feel, I don't want to do this any more, I am so disgusted, I am so humiliated and all my work, all the memorial's I maintained through the family first policy, Gone!

cyber stalking by dare2dream
This person has been asked several times to cease contact through useless, redundant ediits. Today he or she was asked to remove our family memorials put into his or her Virtual Cemeteries. I could not email you since an older cell is all I have access to while traveling regarding other family elders. Two others seem to be in league with this individual.
