Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been a contributor on this site for over 13 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them at all.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

Mrs Joseph E Stark
Hi Joan--your message prompted me to do a little digging on Mrs. Stark. I found her given name, birthdate and place of birth on her Death Certificate and was able to link her with their son, John, also at SANC through the VA Nationwide Gravesite Locator. I have no idea where husband, Joseph, is buried. Thanks! Laura

Bonnie Bell Parr
You have Bonnie Bell Parr with the right family but buried in San Fernando Cemetery is it the same as Roselawn Memorial Park. You help would be appreciated.

Her obit from San Antonio Express July 17 1969 calls her MRS. Bonnie Belle Parr at 149 Dear(Pear) Walk was a 28 year resident of San Antonio. Her services will be 3 PM Thursday at Roselawn Memorial Park. Mrs. Parr memeber of Baptist Church and retired practical nurse is survivied by one sister Fannie (PARR not in obit) McGowan of Nederland.

I dont know why she is listed as MRS. She was according to family history married several times or lived with someone etc. In 1930, she was listed as Bonnie B Parr 22, practical nurse (as is in her obit).

San Antonio Express p 10 F Thursday, July 13 1967 ......(Bonnie Bell Parr's sister)
Mrs Toynette Martha (Parr) Roquemore, 83, of 515 Elm St died Wednesday. She is survived by 2 sisters, Miss Bonnie Parr of San Antonio and Mrs Fannie (Parr) McGowan of Nederland. Services will be 10 AM Saturday in Roselawn Memorial Park. Arrangements by Alamo Funeral Home.

Hello, and thank you for the work you did on this individual, he is my great grandfather. I've been doing a lot of work on my own and it was great to see this. However, I have many research questions as to how you came about this information. Could you please contact me in a private message at

Thank you.

I don't think I looked in the census - It's been a few days LOL
