Thank you
I just wanted to thank you for creating the memorial for my 3rd great grandmother Memorial# Josephene French 53100342. If you are not related, my I have her memorial page? If not, I do understand. I do hope to link my family tree together.

Thanks again!

Hi Joe,
Yeah, several years ago I asked you and I believe you said "wait a while." Now I find that good things come to those who wait. Thanks much!

Joe, if you quit, how about finally transferring my mother's dad and his dad to me? They are Jermain Lawrence Thacker 40720104 and Anson A (no middle name) Thacker 45300476. I have many of the others before and after, who are my family.

I know your frustration, but you are far too valuable to Find A Grave. Theresa RaNae is nothing but a self centered spoiled brat. Joe you have so much more class than that twit could ever hope to have.

I left her a message yesterday and she deleted it quite quickly.

Please take care my Find A Grave friend, I'm behind you 100 %.

Kindest Regards,

This and That
Hey Joe - Just wanted to say thanks for all the great work you've done. Close to 70K photos is amazing! Considering it takes about a minute just for FG to take an uploaded photo that makes about 1K hours just for the uploads. Add in the leg work, doing a bit of site cleanup, shooting and documenting the photo in the field (watching out for shadows and sun), occasional editing to make sure the photo is straight and doesn't have a foot in the view (I've done that more than I care to admit), making sure it's not a duplicate, etc., and a person can probably multiply those 1K hours by a factor of 5 or 10. Now compare that to a 40 hour a week job that is typically under 2K hours per year.

To have someone casually dismiss such work as mere 'grave walking' provides about as good an example of shallow and self-absorbed thinking as any of us is likely to see.

As for questions about FG policies and procedures people really should try reading the FAQ before posting public messages. If someone doesn't like FG policies either take it up with the admins or spend time elsewhere at a site like billion graves where there is plenty of wide open space.

Anyways, thanks again Joe for all the volunteer work and enjoy the upcoming summer.

RE: Thank you.
That is the kind of road trip I'd LOVE to take (maybe I can talk my hubby into it for our 25th). Very cool! And again...excellent work!
