To keep weeds out of the beautiful Find A Grave garden....

First, I don't link to Burial Unknown Site Memorials as BU shouldn't be on FAG according to the guidelines of the website. The first criteria for making a memorial on FAG is having the burial site, as this is a grave registration site. When you made a BU, you have a chance of losing the memorial to the member who "Find A Grave" in the cemetery.

Second, I may or may not transfer outside of the guidelines to an established member. It is my choice. Long-time hard working-members, who are busy in surveying cemeteries and taking grave photos impress me more than someone who is collecting others' memorials for their personal goal or waiting for someone to find the burial sites for their numerous memorials made with an "unknown burial site".

Lastly, there are no duplicated memorials on FAG. If I find a duplicated memorial while researching this site, there is 99% chance that it will be deleted or merged eventually.

You may disagree with the guidelines but remember the guy who started Find A Grave wrote them. He is the boss.

Many of the memorials transferred to me were done without my request for them. These memorials have found a home and will be nurtured.

Also, thank you for all the flowers and tokens left on my family's memorial. They are all sincerely appreciated by me and my family.

Remember to check on the Discussion Forums here. They are very newsy, helpful and interesting!

RE: B Us
Basically that's it. Not that I'm lazy, but I have several thousand pictures to enter onto F-A-G, and prefer to use my time that way. Whenever anyone contacts me, I'm happy to transfer management. Hope that's not wrong.

Hi Linda: I appreciate what you are doing but I don't know how to help except to transfer management of those headstones to you so you can make whatever corrections are needed. My sister and I strive to take "complete" cemeteries, then enter them onto F-A-G so others can benefit from them. If we come across one that is already on there, but lacks a photo, we add the photo.
Is there something else I should / could do to aid you in your quest??? Pauline

RE: Flowers
Thank you for your sincere sentiments.

My husband was an attorney and his legacy to me was that interpretations are interpretations. In certain cases, those interpretations have led to world wars: in others, the interpretations matter so little that they are dismissed with the degree of respect they merit.

RE: Thank you!
You're welcome. I prefer to transfer to people who have interest in the memorial.

if I have a duplicate, please let me know and I will be glad to delete. For some reason, it took some time for a couple to delete. I am sorry if that was inconvenient for you, but it was not my doing. Once I hit the delete button, I thought they were deleted.

Linda, you have an interpretation of some ideas and that is wonderful. Just remember that not everyone has the same interpretations as you. I have confidence in my interpretations and I value others concepts, misguided as they are. By your interpretation, neither my husband nor my son, my only child whom I lost in a tragic accident, are entitled to a memorial on Find a Grave. Surely, you cannot believe that is the spirit of Find a Grave. You seem to be well versed in the guidelines, so if you read them again, you will find that Find a Grave believes that everyone deserves a memorial. Wouldn't you agree that my husband and my son deserve a memorial?

RE: Thomas B. Corbin
Thanks, I was not aware that they would delete it unless someone complained.

I did not see what I shared and seem to have forgotten. I think he is kin to one of my facebook friends Lacey Corbin.
