Find-a-Grave rocks! (Well most of the time.)|
I hope everyone understands that this website is designed for GRAVE registration. The best possible situation is when someone goes to a cemetery and sees a stone, photographs it and makes a memorial if need be. But with the incredible amount of information on the internet about family history many people, including myself, are creating memorials based on cemetery locations listed on death certificates, local histories, obituaries, etc. The main point being though that you KNOW where that person is buried BEFORE you create a memorial.
A contributor should not be creating what I call PLACEHOLDERS, memorials set up to save the spots basically, to edit in the future when they MIGHT find out the burial location.
I wish it were mandatory for everyone to read the F.A.Q. before they are allowed to start entering information to this great website. It will solve a lot of issues.
Let me know if you need a transfer if you can add more bio info. Hope everyone gets out there and photographs some stones - that is the main reason this site exists. Thanks.
I welcome edits even if its just a GPS, plot number, marker transcription or middle/maiden name etc. I like complete memorials.
Found this inscribed on a stone in Warwick, Ma.:
"Low in the ground my bed is made,
here in the dark alone I'm laid.
Depart my friends and let me rest,
I'm weary of this wilderness."
Found this on a find-a-grave profile:
Old Bones' profile poem"
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
NOTE: A couple personal policies I follow:
1) I do not link to "burial location unknown" relatives. You're supposed to know where they are buried - that is the whole point of this website.
2) I do not list cause of death unless it is some tragic accident. Would you want to be remembered forever for dying from diabetes/alcohol abuse/suicide etc.? I find it a bit tacky - but to each their own.

I happen to be in Nova Scotia last week and only had a few hours in Pubnico. I went to Laurel Hill Cemetery in search of my gr grandparents William & Salome (Goodwin)Goodwin and gr. gr. grandparents Harvey & Catherine (Malone) Goodwin. While I was there I tried to find as many Gravestones belonging to Goodwin's and take a picture. I happened to see Robert & Elsie Hines gravestone and knowing she was a Goodwin, I snapped a picture not knowing you had requested a photo. I also found three of their children Nora, Pearly, and Richard. I have added them to find a grave, but will gladly you transfer their memorial since you are directly related to them.
Please contact me at RPalmer835@comcast.net.

Great minds run together! I just photographed this entire cemetery yesterday too! If you have them all I won't continue.

|Jeff Hall||Thank you!|
Hello Ryan, thank you for the exceptional headstone photos added for PFC Edward E Petzolt, great work!
|Michael Raymond||RE: Busy Bee|
Never your help is always welcomed...! Wish somehow I was up there for a couple of weeks to get the entire Old Centre Cemetery headstones photographed and fix some of the headstones...
|Michael Raymond||Busy Bee|
Ryan... man o man have you been busy with all the edits you sent to me... I have only one that I need to check on that's Henry Raymond you sent a DOB and DOD change that I need to check on...
THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP, WORK, PASSION!
|Christopher Brooks||RE: Sarah (Brooks) Aiken & Henry|
Already transferred Henry. Keep him or I'll take him back, your call.
|Karen K Amidon||RE: Fix URL?|
Just so you know, I sent an e-mail to email@example.com and explained the problem and it appears they fixed it.
Good to know there's "somebody out there".
|Karen K Amidon||RE: Fix URL?|
I created the woman's memorial & the man's was transferred to me. I figured I could fix it too once I had control of both, but hey, it's not working. The only other thing I can think to do is delete & start over.
Is there a tech help dept for FindAGrave? Anyway, thank you for your time.
|Karen K Amidon||Fix URL?|
Question: Is there a way to fix a "malformed URL"? I'm having a problem linking a husband & 2nd wife. When I click on her name on his site I get the "Not Found" message. If I enter his # on her memorial then her name shows up 2x on his site. Help!
Thank you in advance for any advice.
|James Bianco||RE: Charles Degarmo - Brandon, Vt.|
That's fantastic! It's always great when you can find and memorialize an entire group of siblings, especially when they are our own family. I have two great aunts and an uncle (siblings of my great grandmother) who I cannot find the cemetery for so I can appreciate how that can be frustrating.
