Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing Find-a-Grave for a while now and have decided to change my bio a bit.

Here are my thoughts on this stuff.

Relax..enjoy what you're doing otherwise you should stop before you get too far into it. No man is an island and this certainly can't be done alone. Rather than complain about someone's them with it.

TRANSFERS: In most cases I'll transfer any memorial that isn't listed in my family surnames. I transfer on a case by case decision. I don't have issues with the number of generations. If I've transferred a memorial to you, please be sure you can maintain it or make the changes that others request. If for any reason, you can't maintain the memorials I've transferred to you, I'll be more than happy to take it back. ..please don't ask for a transfer of memorials and then become an inactive member, and have all your memorials go stagnant...TRANSFER THEM BACK OR TRANSFER THEM TO SOMEONE WHO CAN MAINTAIN THEM.

PICTURES: If I've taken a picture or attached a document ... please help need to give me credit. I don't need to toot my horn or have it tooted. I've added them to the memorials for everyone to use. If you want to attach a picture to my memorials that are better than mine...please do so. I welcome them, but keep in mind I might use them in if they're in my family tree....thanks again in advance.

EDITS: If there are errors in any of the memorials that I've entered please let me know. I'll be glad to correct them as well as make any changes necessary. PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON.

FLOWERS: PLEASE PLEASE don't use the flower section as a place to add a bio for the memorial...that isn't where it belongs. If I happen to come across one on a memorial that I've created, I will ask you to remove it. I'll gladly add it to the bio...just send me an EDIT. If it isn't deleted in a timely amount of time I will ask to remove it.

DUPLICATES: Duplicates's impossible not to happen. We've all created duplicates. If you've created a duplicate, please don't ignore the courteous request to delete them. I will gladly delete mine. If you don't delete your duplicate within a reasonable amount of time, I will ask to do so.

It's hard for me to understand that these memorials belong to any one person....I believe they belong to "all" of us.

A sincere THANK YOU to all the Find a grave volunteers for all the hard work, help and dedication that you've given me.

Edward Zahn Memorial
Thank you for calling the duplication to my attention. I see where the other memorial was submitted before mine. As Edward Zahn is part of my Florentine family and I have added a bio and other connections I prefer to retrain the management of his site. I will try to reach the person that placed the original and ask to have it deleted. Audrey

NH Veterans Cemetery
Have you found many instances where someone was supposed to be buried in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, but that person isn't included in the Veterans Administration gravesite locator database?

Miville dit Deschenes, et al
Dear Ms. Russell,

My wife and I are researching our family genealogies.

My 2nd great grandmother was of french canadian ancestry. I have records (1870 US Federal Census) of her being in Toledo, Ohio, USA and married to William Henry Gage. Her maiden name on family vital records is phonically spelled Adelia DeSainey 1840 to ?

I am unable to trace her parents to Quebec or Ontario. I believe she was born near Detroit, between there and Toledo, Ohio around 1840.

Do you know on anyone who may have knowledge of her family or a bound family genealogy that may represent her? Other resources?

RE: Donald Ferren
Hi, Connie.

No, sorry.

I have a lot of family pictures, too. I just add them to ancestry and tag the names so that people who are searching can be in touch. I get a lot of responses.

Find A Grave's rules are clear and straightforward.

Rule of thumb: When in doubt, leave it out.

I definitely appreciate your desire to share your mother's collection. But Find A Grave isn't the venue.

Find A Grave Memorial# 121574101
Hi There,

I am hoping you can help me out. My GGrandmother was Marie Desanges Laroche. She is buried here at St Peters in Lewiston, Androscoggin, ME. I have a picture of my families headstone called LAROCHE. I am wondering if she is buried in this headstone where the rest of my family is? Are you able to look and tell if she is buried under a red granite headstone? Her name wont be on it. No ones is, its just the last name. Please let me know if you need more information or if you can assist me.

I appreciate the help.
Thank you,
Linda Carlin

RE: Memorial# 121497457
Thank you for your response. Because someone requested a photo for him, I don't see any reason to remove them. The member requesting the photo was perfectly fine with the photos I posted. If I remove the photos someone else can come along and request another photo and they will photograph the same lot. As I indicated before, if you find that the lot information is incorrect, I will be more than glad to take another photo when weather permits. I guess you would have to ask your question of what their relationship is to the member who requested the photo.
