Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm willing to transfer memorials over to family members but ONLY DIRECT ancestors, ie Parent, Grandparent, Siblings. Also; ONLY with proof of direct ancestry. The remainder transfer request approvals or denials will be at my own discretion.

Please do not ask me to delete memorials of my own family members nor threaten me if I do not transfer a memorial over to you. Threatening me will get you nowhere. Or ask me to stop adding memorials for a certain state and/or town. I have every right like everyone else to add memorials for those locations.

Please DO NOT police my memorials. There is no need to try to take vengeance against me. I do not police other contributors, so please don't police me. We are all here for the same reason and no one is better than anyone else.

If you find errors in one of my memorials send me a friendly message with proof of correct information. After I have gotten the information verified then and only then will I make the correction. There is no need to be rude and demanding.

RE: LouAnna Gonzalis Soap
I looked all over the net and even dragged my big road map out but could not find a town or community named Straiter. I know there are many communities that have died out and been forgotten in Oklahoma and I bet it's the same everywhere

When I posted my entry, I checked first and there was no other of this listing. I will remove mine but it was not an intentional thing.

RE: LouAnna Gonzalis Soap
I think the other contributor is kin to Louanna, sometimes they get kinda territorial. I myself am not into the numbers, just kinda O.C.D. about forgotten graves. I'll keep sending you obits that I find on Local people and any info i can find from census and other records. Keep up the good work!

I made this memorial @ the request of the family, specifically his son Todd. I also personally new the deceased for nearly twenty years. Your memorial didn't even have a photo. So I decline your suggestion.

RE: Harold Lee Uptegraft
Thanks for the response. I just happened to find that duplicate and was sure you both probably were posting at similar times. It always seems better to me to combine the information from two sites into one site to honor these people.

Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

RE: Frances
If you would like a pic of the newspaper article I can go back down and take another one. When I finished writing it down, I deleted the one I had taken. Just let me know :)

RE: Re: Tyler Burns
No biggie. I can definitely see how that can happen. It threw me when I saw the first entry too!

Re: Tyler Burns
Regarding your notice of duplicate on Tyler Burns. It isn't a duplicate. Oddly enough two people with the same name died on the same day. Middle names are different and they died in different places.

RE: Memorials
Hi Shay,

Just to clarify: the photo and obituary appear in the Tulsa World and I hold copyright, so they are allowed by the rules.

Also, note that information about living relatives is also allowed under certain circumstances:

"Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission."

I'll update the memorial to make it clear that this is not an "original" obituary. Thanks!
