As long as you hold me in your memory.
Remember me.
~~Josh Groban~~

This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits. Quality, not quantity.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

Your note
Thanks for your kind words. Feel the same way about the fact that we only "foster" these memorials until they are happily discovered by their family. So many fascinating stories of those who have come before us, their lives like ours, "laden with happiness and tears".

RE: John Guido Vacca
Yes I am related; a cousin. His father, Giovanni Battista Vacca, was my great grandmother's brother. Thanks for your contributions to F/A/G. The work you do is very helpful to family historians. Sincerely, Carol

Thank you for the wonderful, surprise gift of my 14th great grandma's page!!! I will take great care of it. If you have any other family members you wish to pass on, I would be a great caretaker!

John Guido Vacca
Thank you so much for placing the biographical information I provided on John's memorial, and thank you for adding more detail. Are you related to this Vacca family, too? Kind regards, Carol

Thanks so much for giving me her memorial! I never know how close is close enough to ask somebody for one.
