Our findagrave activity stemmed from my love of genealogy, photography and old gravestones, strengthened when we saw the damage one year of weather does to an older stone that cannot stand the test of time well. We believe everyone deserves to be remembered, beyond plain, cold statistics, and document as much as we are able, especially as we travel. This is 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. |
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. People with kind, sincere words make my day.
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. Cooperation is the entire point of this site. I now understand why people leave Findagrave. If you are rude, I will ignore you.
I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates, not documenting cemeteries any more. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Nine times out of ten, they have already been added. PLEASE PLEASE 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.'
If you will not honor an update sent in by another volunteer, you are doing the memorial, AND the hard work of the volunteers a real injustice, not to mention the Findagrave admins who now have to do YOUR WORK. If you don't want to do updates, give your memorials to someone who will, PLEASE.
Do not use my photos without permission, and ask BEFORE you use them. Simple, reasonable. And, if your pictures are out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, crooked, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will place my photo on the memorial. Sorry. Please have the respect 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, general inquiries ANY memorial. 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.

Anne - Thank you so much for adding all the requested photos at the Coulterville Cemetery. I am fortunate when you claim the requests as I know the photos will be excellent. It will be difficult for me to keep working on a mid-western part of the family tree with the distraction of these new photos. Just last week I was thinking I should plan a trip to Modesto so I could take some cemetery photos that just might have a green background instead of dirt and dried weeds. Once again, many thanks for your numerous contributions to Find A Grave. ~ Nancy

thank you for the wonderful photos.

Thank you so, so much for the transfer. That is very kind of you.
We do know where the family is buried. As royals they are not in a graveyard, they are inside of churches just like my Gr-Grandparents here. Or under Statues in town squares. So we have to put 'burials unknown'. There is no option for burial inside of church or cathedral. What else can we do? And the nobility goes back for over a thousand years. So, believe me it is a problem for us.
Again, I cannot thank you enough for transferring our family to us. That is so great!
Will and Margie
|Memerizion||RE: Sir William Ryther #113377008|
Yes we are related to the Ryther's. We are direct descendants. They are our, I don't know how many times great-grandparents.
And thank you for the update too!
|Wisterial||RE: Charles Maxwell Sanderson 69856495|
Anne, I wasn't going to press for a transfer but I'm honored! Thank You! By the way, was reading your profile and enjoy your integrity - something Find-A-Grave needs more of! Please keep doing a wonderful job. Take care!
|Wisterial||RE: Charles Maxwell Sanderson 69856495|
Hi Anne ~ Abigail King Sanderson was the sister of my GGF Jonathan King. Also - THANK YOU for the memorials you have created and have shared here. I had searched for a few years for Abigail's children and husband's info. I am much appreciative. Do you know where Abbie's grave site is? I can't find her grave and it should be in or near Sanger area. Are you related as well?
