Concerning the new Suggest a Correction (edit) system being beta tested which I am on: Many updates, like maiden names and place of birth, are being put into the notes section of a field edit. While I can see the additional updates there, this is defeating the purpose of this new system. Just like when you edit one of your own memorials for name and dates, you have to go to two different screens to do so. The same holds on entering edits to a memorial under this new system. After a field edit is done (like adding maiden name) and the submit button is clicked, the edit is not immediately sent like it would be on the old system. The top section of the memorial is grayed out - you can go back into edit again and add other info into fields (like place of birth).|
If an update/edit you've sent isn't showing up, it's because the info was put into the notes section and not the field provided for the info.
Hunting down Gerberichs & all variants of the spelling. Burials with the sheaf of wheat logo in the flower section are descendants of Hans Gerberich from Altfeld, now in Germany, the surname translating to "rich in sheaths". (Still have thousands to find and add!)
I now strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made that fall outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.
Please don't justify an out-of-guideline transfer request for the sake of adding links and/or other information. Am perfectly capable of doing this, especially now with the new EDIT system - much quicker than transferring.
Copy-and-paste census, military and other data is not a "bio". Don't bother sending it because it will not be added.
Finally, I will NOT add a link to a burial unknown memorial. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason. Not a difficult concept.
Am on the new EDIT feature and LOVE IT! Am able to handle dozens of updates in a matter of minutes now instead of hours. Most updates are being done within a day or two but if your updates take a few days longer to get done, please understand I live on the beach, it's summer and am enjoying being basically lazy.

|J. Edward Ross||Re: Edit request for Charles Bleistine memorial|
Your change request for the Charles H Bleistine Sr (66855795) memorial page asked to add middle name (Henry) and delete the nickname (Bud).
Before I respond to the request, I recently added his obituary which includes the nicname "Bud." Is there still a reason to remove the nickname?
Please let me know either way, so I can process the request.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday.
New guidelines make no sense what so ever. Nothing wrong with the way it was. Not your fault, but thank you for this post. I'm in the mood to "delete" everyone of mine. Thank you, Jane

Thank you for you input Gerbilady, I will try harder to meet your standards and follow the Find A Grave guidelines.
Is there a way for you to connect Jeannine F Boisvert to Joseph Georges Duplessis and Marie Jeanne Duplessis interred in Connecticut? Jeannine is their daughter. Jeannine was my sister-in-law, thanks.

Could you transfer this to me. Robert Ridgewell is my father.
I believe I already asked for her husband, Joe. Would you please transfer my cousin 51059431
to me (#47397977)

John Sr. was the father of John Richard Gebert Jr. #67877312 and Jack Edward Gebert #67877311. John Sr. was my husband's brother. Can you link them together?
Thanks in advance and Happy Thanksgiving!

This is probably a difficult question, since this memorial was established in 2007, but I will ask.
Where did the list of spouses come from?
He was my dad's brother and when I asked dad about Betty M. Hazel, he didn't remember anything about her.
Hope you are doing well.

"Finally, I will NOT add a link to a burial unknown memorial. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason. Not a difficult concept".
No not findagrave, I was talking about Gerblady. I have never encountered that tone while pursuing family history, except maybe from a crusty archivist who hasn't been out of the archive for an extended period. I would guess some of the most historic finds that come about from this site have or will be memorials created from several pieces of information converging at findagrave, contributed by two or more individuals. I get the concept, collaboration, and synergy. Imagine the historic graves where no headstone has existed matbe for decades, but by sharing scraps and shreds of information that lost record is virtually restored, available to any interested party. It's called Findagrave, not foundagrave, many of us are still looking for for specific graves. Maybe it should be called Lokkingfor-finding-foundagrave. I do family history for enjoyment try and have some fun.
