Rules are rules, and in this case, guidelines are rules. Please abide by them. They aren't that difficult. |

The FAQs are definitely guiderules...or are they rulelines? No matter. The FAQs *absolutely* detail site policy and all members are expected to follow them and abide by them.

Having been a beta tester for the new EDIT system, have nothing but praise for this new feature! Can get through updates in minutes what used to take hours. This new edit feature is also proving to be a huge leap in getting the name fields clean up per the naming conventions found in the FAQs (these are not optional nor subject to interpretation):
Memorial Naming Conventions:
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field.
Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
First Name - First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Middle Name - Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Nickname - Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.
Maiden Name - Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's surname as their new surname. If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
Last Name - Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
Any photos I've added to this site are open for anyone to use, no permission or credit needed.
I strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.
Copy-and-paste census, military and other data is not a "bio". Please don't send these type of bios because they will not be added.
Finally, I will NOT add a link to a burial unknown memorial. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason. Not a difficult concept.

Sorry, I just figured it out. Cyrus Ristenbatt and Lucy Snyder were married. Cyrus is related to Charles through his mother. Charles parents were John Wenrich and Amelia Ristenbatt.
|Cindy Pelfrey||Clara A. Wenrich-Mt. Lebanon Cem, Lebanon Co., PA|
Just wanted to let you know that Clara's maiden name was Bufflap. Her parents were Christian Gottleib Bufflap and Mary Ellen Zerbe. I think Lucy might be his second wife.
|Linda Ellis||Mr Dupree|
This is what the family put on the marker, so I will keep it as is. Thanks for your concern.
Thank you for the family links and for posting the name field guidelines. I was not aware of all the details. Thanks again.
|Morgan Schneider||Transfer of Robert Schneider|
Thank you SO much for transferring my grandfather's memorial page to me!
|Carl Catherman||William & Mary Bitner|
Thank you very much for adding the links to their memorials.
Are you still a member and doing additional information to find a grave, as I have not seen the information that was sent?
|Frank K.||Mrs. Carpenter|
Thanks for finding my "Mrs. Carpenter" error. What was I thinking? I know better. Good catch.

You're very welcome. Indiantown Gap is very peaceful and serene and I have always seen deer while I'm there. It's a pleasure to visit and take pictures.
