My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, Chester, Montour and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania. My strongest passion is to locate and honor all war veterans who sacrificed years of their youth,healthy lives and sometimes their adulthood. They must never be forgotten.
All of my entries to findagrave have been added with honor, one by one!
Hello Neil,

Thank you for contacting Find A Grave in regard to making changes and corrections.
We have increased our requirements regarding documentation in order to improve the accuracy of information available on Find A Grave.
They will need to send documentation for the update (i.e. link to website, official paperwork, source, documents, etc.) as to where this information was located. You, as a manager, can determine if the information is substantial.
If you need additional assistance, please feel free to reply to this message.



Many contributors are speculating on burial locations of old pioneer family members with no proof of burial. This may be encouraged by contributors who will not link to memorials listed as unknown cemetery. This practice is very deceiving for serious researchers who will be misguided in their research for accurate results. It also is misleading for those requesting gravesite photos. Without proper burial records, I may chose to decline family links.

Please consider that the information given in memorials is not only provided by the memorial manager but also by others through edit requests which cannot always be verified. These edit requests could also be added without the review of the memorial manager if not acknowledged in a given time period.

Please do not assume a middle name by suggesting a surname. I will not add without some official record such as obituary,death, burial,birth record,tombstone or individual's signature. I prefer to display names as they are most commonly perceived by skilled researchers and/or as they appear on the tombstone.

My thanks and devotion to you who are courteous, polite and appreciative. Those who are rude, demanding and condescending, are not in the best interests of findagrave principles.

Find a Grave photos
I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give you your first and last name for the captions?

RE: Eva Kintzer Leiss
Thank you for the enlargement, and again I apologize for what seemed like (but wasn't intended as) a command. I'm sure it's not the last time I'll have to learn the lesson to choose words carefully on the internet, since tone and facial expression can't be conveyed. I expect that I was at the end of the day and some crankiness leaked through. Again - thank you for all your work, which is much appreciated.

Best regards,

RE: Eva Kintzer Leiss
I apologize if my question sounded like an ultimatum. I'm unable to see her maiden name on the tombstone photograph, but accept that you can, and that it's there. Perhaps we have a different philosophy as to providing sources. I don't take it as a challenge when someone asks me for documentation - I just assume they want to be sure there actually is some. I'm always glad to provide whatever I have, as I think it saves others from doing, yet again, research that someone else has already done. I've often received documentation from others and been thankful that I didn't have to cover the same territory. Why keep reinventing the wheel? That being said, I seem to have caused offense. That was not my intention, and I sincerely beg your pardon. I know you've done a vast amount of work on this site, and I respect the time and commitment that has gone into it.

You say memorial 147796177 is a duplicate. I do not find the duplicate on findagrave. Please supply the duplicate information so I may take action. Thank you.

Evan Evans
Hello Neil,

Evan Evans is my direct ancestor; I would be delighted if you would transfer him to me, 48466302. You declined my edit on his parent link(s)-

I sent another edit last night under 'Suggest any other correction or addition' which explains my reference source. Evan was one of the sons of Thomas Evans, who was the eldest of the Evans brothers among the Gwynedd founders in 1698. (He was in his late forties then.)

The mother of all of Thomas Evans's offspring was named Ann. She died here in 1716; and about six years later - when past the age of 70 - Thomas Evans remarried a widow, Hannah Davies. The couple moved to Goshen (New Jersey, I assume, approx. 100 miles SSE of Gwynedd) and lived out their lives there.

Also, when I have time I'll send you some edits for the calendar month, because before 1753 the colonists were still using the Julian calendar, in which "1st month" meant March, not January. (In fact, the Old Style year began on March 25th!)

Thank you for your attention,
Sandi Haynie

Someone must have given you a wrong edit on this man. The parents are incorrect as the stone reflects. I hope he can find his true parents. I did send an edit to you, for viewing correct info.

Stephen Rosch # 47805613
Hi Neil Im doing family history research on Stephen and was wondering the source you have for his birth and death dates, his wifes name, and his father. It is very much in line with the family history I have from my uncle but do not have any sources from him.

Pvt Christian Miller (1756-1845)
I am searching for my maternal 4th GGF, Christian Miller, born about 1757 in Berks Co, PA. I have found your Find a Grave site (with Veterans burial card)for Pvt. Miller who was the only burial in Hendel's Crossing. I am wondering why he is the only burial. Do you have any additional info on this person?
