Please send memorial information and corrections to me by using the edit tab on the memorial. That way I do not have to hunt the person about whom you are talking as the link is there which will take me directly to the memorial. |
Please do not ask me to transfer a memorial to you unless the request falls under the Find a Grave guidelines - "Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

|Starfishin||RE: Duplicate Memorials|
You wrote: "I am no longer taking photos."
I am in awe of anyone -- including you -- who ever did. It takes physical effort on so many levels -- and then the organization to get everything in the right place -- it feels very daunting to me. Very impressive!
|Starfishin||RE: M. Joki|
I want to make contact with you in advance about George Huhtanen's memorial, especially as I know this is an issue that you encountered with Dorothy L. Joki's memorial a couple of years ago.
Before your start wondering "What is she doing?", I want to explain.
Find A Grave guidelines are clear that memorials should not be created for persons that are still living. Honest mistakes happen, to be sure, but when a person creates over 150,000 memorials by, in part, repeatedly creating memorials for people who are still alive they deserve, at best, to be ignored. When a memorial was created five years before George Huhtanen's death, by a person who has a strong track record of doing things like that, I ignore it. [I did request that the memorial for his still-living wife be deleted, but past experience suggests that is not likely to happen.]
I can think of few things more distressing than finding out that a Find A Grave memorial has been created for you, or for a still-living relative. When it is done recklessly (and repeatedly) it not only shows a disregard for the feelings of other people but devalues the work of all the Find A Grave volunteers.
I guess you can see I'm not exactly relaxed on this issue. They only way I know to let people know it's not ok to repeatedly create memorials for living people is to ignore those memorials once the person actually dies.
Thanks for the suggestion.
The information was already inputted, but apparently hadn't updated when you made your suggestion -- possibly because I had several screens going at once (but who really knows)as I was trying to update several things at once. Anyway, your suggestion came through to me as "no change" so it appears whatever you suggested had gone through by the time it came back around to me. I accepted "no change" anyway!
Anyway, I was able to locate sister Sylvia M. Rautine, and submit a suggestion that will link her with the rest of the family. I will add the any Cornell information as I am able to find it.
Have a good day :)

Nope. I'm not a photographer, just a lowly researcher.
I did just hear (belatedly) of the terrible destruction done to another area Catholic cemetery, St. Mary's in Cortlandville, and the efforts undertaken to restore and re-photograph those graves. What a terrible thing -- and how wonderful of the people who have those skills to use them in this effort. The photographs of the willful damage done are heartbreaking.
Thanks for the obit.
He was father in law of my Aunt.
strange no mention of the first wife -
now I'm not sure which was the mother of my Aunt's husband Gerald.
thanks once again !!
|Vicki Masters Profitt||Robert B. Woolston|
Thanks for the obit & other info about Robert Woolston. I've updated his memorial.
|Vern713||RE: Never mind|
Sorry for the confusion, I thought the grave markers would lead you in the right direction. I see you got it! Is that William Robinson listed as his father still correct?

Thank you for the information which I added to his memorial.

Thanks. Don't know why it didn't show on my initial search.
Since the other contributor has only a photo on his memorial, and since I had extensive bio and links on mine [and have a pending edit link for the son], I have simply transferred management to that contributor so he can merge, copy or otherwise update at his convenience. Seemed the simplest way, rather than making numerous suggestions for the original memorial and having to re-do all the links.
