|Bio and Links|
I joined Find a Grave July 15, 2002. I had visited the site for about two years prior.|
I have seen many changes; some good (link feature), some not so much. Two things I miss are the different icons for what is now "other"; and the availability to archive photos, they were viewable but not unless you clicked on them, a perfect place for death certificates.
I have met some really nice people that want to help in any way possible; some that want to make their own rules; and a very few that are just rude.
I am trying to update my memorials as time allows; creating links and adding obituaries. Many of my memorials were created before the link feature was created (about 2008).
Regarding edits, unless a pictured headstone or a posted obituary contains the information; I will decline a suggestion without a verifiable source. I feel edits should be sourced, not just declines.
I am also "downsizing" the amount of memorials I manage. So, if there is no relationship posted on a memorial, or you are more closely related (or knew them); let me know if you want to maintain those memorials. PLEASE make request from each memorial.
(contact me through any of my memorials)
