Remember, I will still be here|
As long as you hold me in your memory
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 family members and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits.
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. Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy. 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. 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 will not link to an unknown burial.
**If you will not honor an update you are doing the memorial an injustice, not to mention the hard work of the volunteers and 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.
** 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. 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.

Wanted to double check about the edits you sent for Evelyn Cavagnaro # 21139215. I checked California Death Index (CADI) and the info didn't match, I tried CABI and couldn't find her.
Hope things are well with you,

He was my 1st cousin 3x removed through my Mother's line.
I read your very interesting biography and philosophy about genealogy--very interesting and I agree 100%.

I totally agree with you! I admit I have a hard time remembering who doesn't link to unknown burials, who insists on using the maiden name only, who insists on posting a duplicate because the earlier memorial didn't show the last name as "de xxx", and other idiosyncrasies.
I will try to remember about you, wonderful contributor, but please forgive me if I forget.

Thank you so much for all the transfers of the Hall & Van de Veere families. That was a very nice thing to do!
I am learning the ropes about requesting to have memorials turned over to me, so I appreciate you're sending them to me automatically!! Ha! One day, I will get brave & ask others for my parent's & brother's memorials.
I have been busy adding pictures & tying fam members together that the website had me check a box claiming that I am not a robot! You might have seen that with as many memorials as you have done.
Well, your info helped me locate some 'lost' relatives & (to borrow a quote) 'That's a good thing.' .
Bless you and your family for all your hard work!

Hello Anne. Many thanks for your message and all your hard work, I did send you an email, no need to reply as I know the answer.
|Hula Gal ||RE: VanDeVeere edit 41964633|
Thank you for the transfer of the VanDeVeere memorials to me.
And thank you for all the photos & documentation of their graves at Evergreen Memorial. I really appreciate the time and work that goes into such an endeavor!
All the best!
