I've been researching since early 1970's.|
I love this site & the many volunteers who
make it possible.
Suggest a correction, please!
If I duped it, I'll delete it.
If you have more info, I'll add it.
If I typed something wrong, I'll fix it.
If it's your relative or friend (and not my direct line :-)), I'll transfer it, unless it's a family I am researching for friends or family!
You can freely use any pictures I have put on here for personal use or for your website.
Have a Blessed Day!

|Robert Brotherhood||RE: Mary Thompson|
Thank you for not making deleting your entry into a major point.
When I first noticed a duplicate, I just notified one person.
Then I found more duplicated memorials, and notified the "owners".
I got some positive reactions, and furious ones.
Then I thought: Why were duplicates created?
Well, some people get cemetery books and upload all entries to Findagrave. Some have done 100,000 and more!
Other people go to a cemetery and photograph gravestones. And all info from the stones is entered into Findagrave. Some people have taken 50,000 photos and more....!!
Yet other people have researched their family trees and entered all members into Findagrave.
I DO understand that with such large numbers, checking first if a memorial already exists is well nay impossible.
That is why I checked some spelling mistakes on Findagrave and corrected them (3000 so far, many more to go) and after accepting I checked the cemetery for duplicates (about 300 so far).
Maybe there should be a check in Findagrave when uploading a name+cemetery+date whether the record already exists. But there is no check now.
What a wonderful site, FINDAGRAVE!
Have a nice Christmas,

I didn't know I could submit an edit when I wrote my first message concerning Melvin. I thought I had to be the one managing the memorial.

Thank you for helping me, I don't usually make that big an error. If you know where James Barnet Stagner is buried I would love to know. I have some pictures on my facebook page and Find A Grave. You are welcome to look and use the ones you like.

Yes he is kin, I'd love if you could transfer him to me. I was going to ask that but thought that you must be kin as well. I've been traveling all over the US collecting and visiting their homes and cemeteries for a few years. Next I plan to go back to where he was born. I honestly can't thank you enough! If there is anyone I have that is your kin please let me know...
Of the 28 Coleman memorials you manage I am related to 15 of them. What an outstanding job you have done documenting them. They helped me to copy the obits I didn't have. Thank you so much.
