As long as you hold me in your memory.
Remember me.
~~Josh Groban~~

This was 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.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits. Quality, not quantity.

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. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

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. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** 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.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration 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, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. 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.

Appreciation
As I climb through my family tree, I frequently find a grave record that you added. I really appreciate the carefulness of your work and the great detail on many of them.

I also looked at your member page and all your instructions and requests. This only increased my respect for your work as I too am getting tired of the sloppy adds I have seen especially since Find A Grave was purchased by Ancestry.

I am also seeing in my personal messages in my trees really lazy people who write to me either asking for information I couldn't possibly have or just random shot in the dark questions about someone with a last name of an ancestor multiple generations back.

SO I think your "rules" of contact are great.

Thank you so much for all the work you have added to these Find a Grave pages.

RE: John Sutton
Yes, he's my 15th great-grandfather. I was working on that branch of my family once again and just had an overwhelming feeling that I wanted to do something more than just leave the virtual flowers. Thank you for adding him and his family to this wonderful website. It's so appreciated! Blessings! Jayne

transfers
Thank you so much, Anne, for the transfers of the memorials for William and Eleanor Kempe, my 15th great grandparents. Also, a couple of weeks ago you transferred the memorials for Walter (my 3rd cousin 16x removed) and his wife,Elizabeth Fitzwalter. Such nice surprises to find when I checked my e-mail. Pat in Texas

RE: Los Banos edits
I'm sorry I missed the info you sent. Why don't u send me the Find A Grave memorial numbers for those individuals and I will go ahead and transfer them to you if that sounds okay with you. Thanks, Karen
