Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

RE: James Henry and Mary Maxine Suggs
Thanks a lot for letting me know about the other memorials for James and Mary. They actually were added 2 days prior to mine. I usually check pretty good; but, guess these slipped up on me. Mine have many links, so, I'll be looking into it. Thanks again.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Perhaps people would not jump to the wrong conclusion it some of your messages were not so negative. And you sir, have a lot of nerve calling anyone "narrow minded". Have a nice day and life!

I notice that you have listed only one person in this cemetery. Do you plan to complete the entries? I have the names and dates and links for most of the people in this cemetery and pictures of all the gravestones. However I am reluctant to add any info for this cemetery because I am unsure of how you handle this since I assume you are the one that added the cemetery to findagrave and seem to enforce "I added the cemetery to findagrave ergo I control all info that is added and will not allow anyone else to make entries". If this is the case then the cemetery can stay as it is. However, I am willing to update this cemetery with all people who are buried there without any interference from you and also add gravestone pics for all of them. However, I will not send my info to you so that you can add it; that is to much extra work. I am also willing to transfer all these memorials to you after I have completed the work as I don't really care who manages the memorials. I would prefer however to transfer management to the proper family members. I have done the work on and my info is reliable. If you can't live with these conditions then we have nothing else to discuss. By the way you have no description of the cemetery given and your gps info is wrong. That puts the cemetery in the middle of a field and there is nothing there and it is not even close to the location.
The ball is in your court. How do you want to proceed? No response will give me the answer that you can't live with these conditions and I will take no further action nor will I contact you again.

I am requesting a change in the spelling of her name and a change in her date of death per information from a photograph of her tombstone. I have added the photograph to her memorial.

O.H.P. Rippeto
Just because something is published in a book, does not make it correct. In the book "Wells" by Alice Katherine Wells his name is Oliver Henry Perry Rippeto and nowhere has it ever been HOWARD. So here is a deal. If you will just use the initials H. P. for his 2 middle names and link him to his parents Thomas B. Rippeto # 162391490 and Ann McWilliams Nelson # 162391564, I will remove my duplicate memorial.

New Memorial for O.H.P. Rippeto
I made a new correct memorial to replace the ones I asked you to delete and you refused. Rippeto (no first name) and O.H.R. Rippeto both are yours and both are wrong and so now there are 4 for him. Mine is the only one that is correct. That is the connection.
