Please, Please do not put Death Certificates on any of my memorials. We respect the feelings of people who do not wish these to appear on the memorials of family and friends, and we ask that you will please also honor their feelings. Texas death certificates are free to view for everyone in the world 24 hours 7 days a week. We always view and read the online Texas death certificates when we create a memorial and would have placed a death certificate on a memorial if we had wanted to do so. Find A Grave memorials are intended to show honor and respect, so this is not the place to publicize these images showing cause of death, etc. It is extremely painful to see one on the memorial page. The creator of F.A.G. has stressed that this is a grave registration site, not a genealogy site. Thanks very much for your understanding and kindness to these people.
We are always glad to make links and add additional information.
DECLINES: If you received a "decline" to your Auto Edit: Look in your edit list for all declined messages and you will see the tiny bubble over the name in your edit list. FAG Admin is aware that the free text explanation line is not coming across in the emails to the submitter. Most of the time, the edit sender and the memorial creator do not realize that message didn't get through to the edit sender.
"THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF FIND A GRAVE IS A GRAVES REGISTRATION WEBSITE. Find a Grave is not meant to be a genealogy site. . . . .it should be one source of many in research."
"What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave: registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
Please remember that dates and information often differ on death certificates, cemetery records, obituaries, and grave stones. We try to do our best to be accurate, but these different sources generally have different dates as well as other different information.
Please do not add WWI draft card images to any of my memorials. I often type this information directly into the bio section where it belongs, not by posting the image. Thank you.
THANKS VERY MUCH to the volunteers who are photographing cemeteries and adding their photographs to F.A.G.!
Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please let me know.
"Please remember, if your memorial is in the wrong cemetery and mine is in the correct cemetery known as the actual final resting place, my memorial is not a duplicate. Please do not move your memorial to that cemetery. The date a memorial is created does not matter if you did not place a memorial in the proper cemetery."
Like many F.A.G. volunteers, I don't post on profile pages. Please include an email address when you write. Thank you for understanding.
