"Everyone deserves to be remembered"
Find A Grave memorials should be viewed as works in progress. I will gladly link families, add tidbits to memorials or correct my errors. Volunteers: Yes, we are volunteers, so let's be kind to one another. Hateful suggestions should never be sent to another volunteer. There are four things that you cannot recover in life: (1) The Stone--after it's thrown, (2) The Word--after it's said, (3) The Occasion--after it's missed, (4) The Time--after it's gone. The statement another volunteer made seems to sum it all up: "We are all volunteers on this great site. We do not own the memorials. We are merely caretakers." PHOTOS: Please note that photos are not always good due to the time of day of photo and some are old markers in poor condition which need cleaning, etc., but they are worth a view to someone searching for an ancestor. The only time I add an "overview" photo to someone else memorial is to show location which is a great help in finding a marker in a large area and/or to add data on the photo caption. If you wish for photos to be deleted, please let me know. No need to ask permission for using my photos, but just add FAG as your source. BIO: Millions of folks read funeral notices online, so they are public knowledge. Sometimes an excerpt is added or perhaps more data to a memorial, but often that information assists genealogist in making family ties. LINKS: Pulling all these families together with links is great. Thanks to all who check their edits often. MEMORIALS: Excluding my own kin, my memorials are up for grabs...please use the "edit" and add your FAG ID# to your request. Many of my memorials are no kin to me, just honoring their memory.
