Bio and Links
I have been doing family history for over 40 years and I do understand that elation when one finds information about their family. For over 5 years now I have tried to do my share in documenting grave sites in any cemetery that I am near. I hope that my efforts have helped some to actually see the grave site of a family member that they never knew the location of or could never hope to visit. I spend many hours doing the photography and even cleaning up the weed choked sites. Also I go the extra mile and try to find more documentation and information about the person.
It is not my intent to construct an instant family tree for anyone but please do not minimize or negate the time and efforts I put forth. I am always cooperative in making corrections or adding information to a site but prefer not to make transfers except under certain circumstances.

I finally got around to adding the bios you sent on the Melcherts in Concordia Cemetery. Sorry it took so long.
Are you related to the Melcherts? We may be cousins. Have you taken the autosomal DNA test at ancestry?

RE: Clarke
It doesn't bother me LOL It bothers you. The temp photo that you placed is May 8 is still on the memorial. On May 23 I asked you to remove the photo on the temporary marker and asked that if you needed it posted to repost it as an "other" photo so that when I ran my que of memorials that still needed headstone photos that this would show up in that que. Your response on May 24 was "Goes without saying that I will remove a temp marker photo if the new one goes up." So even when I agreed with you that sometimes temporary markers serve as the only marker I explained again how it would help me, you ignored my request to upload as an "other" photo. Three days later I requested you to remove your temporary marker photo since I uploaded the photo of the permanent marker. Does it surprise me that you ignored that request? Nah But your response to my second request is a gem "Well, now they can all be enjoyed! Don't let this trivial thing unglue you so much! There are a lot of graves out there and this is a national cemetery not a private one for your exclusive use" And today you claim you removed it? All because I asked you to upload your photo in a manner that would help me…

Why does it bother you that I requested the temporary marker photo be removed?

RE: Clarke
So you really didn't mean it when you said you'd remove it once the permanent marker was placed...??? Typical LOL

Kay,

Thank you for establishing memorial # 129245230 for the subject. I was at the cemetery two weeks ago and I could not find the grave. Do you have in your records what row the grave is in?
Thank you again for your contributions to Find A Grave.

RE: Pena, Sgt JohnL # 6736835
Hi,
His rank was that of a Sgt when I died in Vietnam.
The person that created the memorial before being transferred to me used the correct description of him being Sgt John L Pena.

That's the same way I create all of my memorials with their rank at time of death. For example he could have been PFC John L Pena instead of Sgt John L Pena.

If I did what you are suggesting then I would have to do that for all the memorials I have created with a rank before the name and isn't happening. I do too much research to go back and change everything. I haven't had time to do much research on Sgt Pena, but the names of his parents were listed on his memorial.

From what I understand the programming at the website will list people by their last name, so it shouldn't have been difficult to find him.
You should link up his parents to each other as husband and wife.

I'm doing research on Hispanic Marines that died, or were killed in Vietnam. Wherever possible I use their rank before their name. That's the way it is and should be done. That's also the way that they are listed everywhere else.

Linked Sgt Pena to his parents.
Thanks,
Tony

Regarding your 10-June correction request... I don't see any duplication between J P Pings 22500632 and Johann Peter Pings 22500639. Was there another "Johann Peter" or "J P" listed that I'm not seeing?

RE: Crowns, Hazel and Noah
Good afternoon:
Thank you again for responding to my request.
I truly appreciate all you have done for the Noah Walter Crown (memorial # 59804127) and Hazel K. Crown (memorial #59804085).
I would make my life much more user friendly to have the Crowns, Noah and Hazel.
I personally don't feel comfortable adding to someone elses find the grave memorial without the ability to change if needed or mistyped. Family history is an ongoing research and I want to be able to add and change if the powers that be - the ones who are still living want it done.
Thank you again for all you have done.
Again I would like to request a transfer of Noah Walter Crown (memorial # 59804127) and Hazel K Crown (memorial # 59804085)

RE: Roth
Well, to be honest it does seem like you do not want to accept the information I am telling you about the family. I am going to look it up, because otherwise this name will sit on my list and rot until October or whenever you do investigate it, and that will just drive me crazy. Either that or I will contact find-a-grave staff about this (and other duplicates) and it will get removed or merged anyway. I prefer to take care of things right away, particularly in cases like this of duplicates, etc., which can cause confusion to other researchers of the same families. The goal of this site is to provide accurate memorials of the deceased and that's one of my goals, too. I only found these duplicates of yours because I was looking through all 9000+ burials of Resurrection to find and remove any duplicates I had accidentally created myself.
