People that think I should read the FAG guidelines, might want to try it themselves.

How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?

The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. INCLUDE OTHER MARRIED NAMES AS PART OF THE BIOGRAPHY SECTION. The 'maiden name' is only for her maiden name.
----------------------------
I'd like to suggest that if you're doing a photo request, and there is no stone for that person, then take a photo of where it should be. I do that because I feel that way they can see there is no marker and maybe have a better feeling having a photo of the location, with other markers on each side for location.

Also if I find a woman that was buried as Mrs.____ don't hassle me over that. It's bad enough that they didn't even use her first name, now some people want to do the same thing with her memorial. If you know her first name, tell me, don't just think I should list her the same as her husband.

When I first found Find A Grave, I was excited and happy to be able to add to it. But sadly it's not that way anymore. I can fully understand the feelings off some of the contributors that have become unactive. When I added memorials, I fully thought family would turn up, want them and fix anything they considered an error. But that's not so either. With the automatic edits, in 21 days, they apparently are made whether you ignored or declined them. There doesn't seem to be much control over your memorials anymore. Just because someone disagrees with the way I've added them, not even family, they can be changed. We are all different individuals, so I can't see why other people, if they're NOT family, should be allowed to change yours. I thought difference of opinion was a way of life, not your right, so I'm wrong. Memorials shouldn't be changed just because someone else thinks they should. I thought the important thing was they were on there for family to find.

Also, I'm tired of people whining because someone might not transfer a memorial. "It's all about the numbers." I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about. The number I added doesn't change, just the number I manage. So if I was in it for the numbers, I'd still be okay. Quit whining.

As far as transfers, I don't necessarily stick to the FAG guidelines as far as relation. If you're a relative, I don't mind transferring (that's why they're on there) BUT it does depend on how you ask/tell me!

RE: Florence Walker
Hi Carol,
If you are ever near the Clymer Cemetery (the one in town across from the school), would you please take a picture of my parents gravestone? They engraved my Mom's death date on the stone today.

If you go in the drive with the Clymer Cemetery sign overhead, the lot is on the right near the back. There will be a lot of Brown gravestones near them. They are closer to the back than the large Lyman Brown monument. I would appreciate it as I will not be in NY in the near future. I have a picture of the stone on my Dad's memorial #42190348
Thank you,
Sue

RE: Hyman McManus
Hi there-I sent an addendum-poor gentleman suffered something awful from PTSD. He was at the State Hospital in Warren where he was declared insane. He lived until after 1898. I put his papers on my family site at ancestry.com
