BACK FROM NEVADA MAY 16, CATCHING UP ON THE SAC'S I RECEIVED.|
I began my interest in genealogy at about age 12 when I found interesting writings about previous generations of the family and I made copies for myself and kept them in a safe place because I thought it was fascinating. I still have those notes at age 67. I grew up in Wichita and San Antonio. Graduated high school in San Antonio.
I'm a Spec 5 Vietnam veteran married for 44 years with 3 children and 6 grand-children located in Wichita, Kansas.
I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their kin easily and accurately. I'm grateful to those kind souls who have helped me in my research and am happy to return the favor. For every memorial I enter onto this site, that's another memorial that has a chance of getting into the right hands of family or friends.
Thanks to everyone who has sent encouraging and positive thoughts! I don't always have time to answer everyone back, but please know you too are appreciated.
Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know. Nicely, please. I'll be happy to remove it. Please don't create a duplicate of my memorials; I would rather you just ask for a transfer instead of creating a duplicate. I promise I won't grill you or make you prove your relationship to the deceased!
And for those that don't seem to get what a dupe is: If I enter a memorial on March 1st for Colby Smith and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Colby Smith on March 15th, the one entered on March 15th is the dupe, not mine.
Transfers: I am not one of those people who refuse to transfer except within certain guidelines. If you are related and promise to take good care of your relative's memorial, I will gladly transfer to you unless it is my direct relative. On each memorial please use the "EDIT" button and then the "Suggest a Correction" (SAC) to request transfer. However, if you are one of those people who strictly adhere to the transfer guidelines but want me to transfer to *you* outside of the guidelines, chances are I will decline your request. My numbers seem to indicate I don't transfer. In fact, I have transferred well over 2,000. Findagrave gave me about 1,800 memorials after the passing of member, Joe Mefford, which is why my 'managed' # is not much less than my 'created' #. Recently I've been transferred many more memorials because the creator went on hiatus.
Recently I've had to be more selective about transfers. Asking for an entire cemetery a few at a time is not going to happen.
Photos: Please feel free to use any cemetery or grave photos I have posted on Findagrave for your personal use, public or private. For any photos of people, please contact me first. Some of them I have obtained permission to use from other sources and will need to run it by them first.
****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain the records please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and willing to take over the records. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates. It would also be a good idea to leave someone instructions on how to do make these transfers should you go inactive without warning.***** Thank You (Borrowed from another FAG Contributor)
Like so many other contributors, I've had to take my e-mail off my bio due to unsolicited, unwanted e-mails.
Thank you to findagrave member T.V.F.T.H. for allowing me to use the Duplicates, Transfers and Photos language above.
