Let me be clear, this is work; and I do not get paid for all the labor intense research going into my memorials - some have been more productive than others, and you will never see a lot of the time I have spent.|
Comments about "numbers hording" is offensive and unjust. You have no idea what is going on behind the scene. Screaming, demanding, impatient Harpies are uncalled for, and will be ignored and reported. As a family researcher of nearly half a century, I hold many pages on behalf of others; clients, that I would call friends.
Please have the courtesy and decency to do a global search BEFORE you add a new listing. Some contributors, like myself, spend countless hours of our free time in researching the people for memorials we have made. Do not diss our efforts, just because you found a headstone. Many of the people in my care, were cremated initially, or donated to science, and buried sometimes years later. Often the obituary either doesn't state the name of the cemetery, or it is unclear, such as "the Centerville cemetery", when the town of Centerville may have three or four cemeteries within its proximity.
I am not going to pass up (and lose) an obit or other valuable information simply because I don't immediately have the cemetery name.
This should be a community effort; play nice, and you will be dealt with in kind. Give some respectable allowance to spelling or dating errors as well.
I am happy to quickly make any corrections or additions. Click on the "Edit" tab to make appropriate changes.
"Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request." [FindAGrave guidelines]
I am not UNWILLING to transfer direct line relatives, but only to the four generations (your great-grandparents); because I have seen several serious mix-ups with identifying ancestors. Also, friends, neighbors, third cousins, etc. simply do not qualify! Requests outside the guidelines will be ignored.
I know there are many contributors that do not hesitate to transfer any page requests; however there are just as many folks who spend much time, money and physical effort to research entries, trying to make honorable memorials.
I appreciate your kind understanding.
ALSO: Please do not put informative notes in the flowers section; that's not what it's for. Send your updates through the edit tab.
