My objective in creating (and/or managing) a memorial is simple – it is to honor the person's life, no matter how short or long a period of time that individual lived. If working with genealogy has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that life is a precious gift, not to be wasted. If I have a memorial for someone who has recently died, and you are a family member who objects to it, let me know & I will delete the memorial. Please send requests for additions, corrections, linking, and transfers through the system FAG provides using the "Edit" tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial. ~~~When you submit an addition or correction, please include the LINK to the OFFICIAL source, so that it can be confirmed. NO EXCEPTIONS. Any edit must be substantiated before the edit will be made. If there is no way to contact you in order to request your source (such as you have your messages disabled and no email address), I will be forced to decline your edit. A family tree is not official; the source needs to be an official document or book. The source name will be posted to the memorial, so that family members can confirm the posted information for themselves. I am unable to accept ancestry.com as a substantiating source as the information on the site is not always reliable. However, www.familysearch.org is an excellent free source for many official records/documents. If information cannot be substantiated, the edit request will be declined. In order to send substantiating information for your edits, use the "suggest any other suggestion or addition" link.~~~ Please note: I do not use birthdates or death ages from death records/certificates, as the older records are frequently wrong, in my experience.** Unfortunately there are members who resent this desire for accuracy and send harassing, abusive messages; those messages will be forwarded immediately to F.A.G. admin.~~~ F.A.G. transfer policy: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. State your exact relationship, please. If you are seeking transfers to "have all my family together", use the virtual cemetery option. The sources I post on the memorials I manage are accessible to anyone wishing to confirm them, as I use the free website www.familysearch.org or online books for information. I'm sorry, but I don't link to unknown burials. I am happy to post information from an obituary that will enhance the memorial in the BIO section of a memorial. Please do NOT leave biographical information and obituaries in a virtual flower. That is what the "edit" tab is for. This is against findagrave.com policy. ****Please do not post a death certificate, obituary, or anything else in the "photo section" except for person photos or photos of the gravestone.**** FOR GRAVESTONE PHOTOS THAT I HAVE TAKEN, PLEASE BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE PHOTO & THEN CLICK A SECOND TIME & THEN A THIRD. THE PHOTO WILL ENLARGE & PROVIDE A CLOSE-UP.

Joseph Melvin McCullough Thank you Allison for the angel you sent to my son. He passed away during delivery. I did hold him, but I never even heard him cry. What a day that will be when I get to see my sweet baby Joseph.
