Bio Photo "A funeral is not a day in one's life, but one's life remembered in a day." Anonymous-DD
Since around 2012-13 I have stopped adding living people from obits into the bio section. Yes, I know I still have some that have them listed.

With all the repeated requests to add living people, here is what Find A Grave says about it.

"""Directly from Find A Grave, we ask that you do not add living individuals to memorials. If you get a SAC asking you to do so, we ask that you ignore it; if an instance arises in which you have a member sending you repeated requests asking you to add the names of living individuals to memorial, please let us know.""".

This directly from FAG administration about edit transcriptions:

Transcription means whatever is inscribed directly onto the headstone OTHER than the name and dates. Such as, "Rest In Peace," or, "He Was a Kind Man". Never put biographical information or anything that is not inscribed on the headstone itself.
