Remember, I will still be here
As long as you hold me in your memory
Remember me.
~~Josh Groban~~

Our findagrave activity stemmed from my love of genealogy, photography and old gravestones, strengthened when we saw the damage one year of weather does to an older stone that cannot stand the test of time well. We believe everyone deserves to be remembered, beyond plain, cold statistics, and document as much as we are able, especially as we travel. This is 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.

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. 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, not documenting cemeteries any more. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Nine times out of ten, they have already been added.

** PLEASE PLEASE 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.'

**If you will not honor an update sent in by another volunteer, you are doing the memorial, AND the hard work of the volunteers a real injustice, not to mention the 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. And, if your pictures are crooked, 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. Sorry. Please have the respect 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, general inquiries 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.

I will just put him as "unknown burial" and you can delete your flower then.
Thanks, Cheryl Slone

RE: Jacob Cooke edit
Hello! Thank you for considering the request. My husband is 13th generation Mayflower descendant of Francis Cook. The next four generations of his line are all named Jacob, and we find it easier when researching to have some distinction between them all! Thanks again, for your time.

RE: Anne Shurtleff Stevens
I appreciate you forwarding the email.

I wanted more info about my Great Grandparent as I know nothing about by Sonora Grandparents even.

From her Bio it sounded like the family was very involved with local history (her dad being involved with the Historical Society. And her being involved with Genealogy.

I was hoping to find someone that would be able to suggest local Sonora place/ links to find out about my relatives. I live 9000 miles away and will never get to the Sonora area.

Personally I donít understand the Contributors attitude about getting as many Memorials as possible, only managing their Ancestors Memorials. And why a contributor would manage Memorials if they arenít going to help people with.

I guess I have been blessed that the only people that contact me are Ancestorís I haveít met. Ever is learning and some more than others.
