Bio Photo Just a friend!

Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been an active contributor on this site for over 15 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches. Just a hint, most people will not respond to your liking when bullying tactics are used.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

I don't know which of you to contact, but this person has to different sites Find A Grave Memorial# 90103885 and 116510086. Each of the memorials have family links. It would be terrific if these could please be merged. Thanks so much for all the work you do.

W. Steel at City Cemetery #7
Hi Joan,
Was wondering if you knew that my relative, W. Steel, was moved from the now defunct City Cemetery #7 to San Jose Burial Park in San Antonio? If so, do you plan on correcting this entry? Let me know if you'd like me to take over this this memorial for you.

Question ??
Good morning, Joan,
First of all, my going to the 'edit' section on Find A Grave does not appear to be working properly, hence, this note and question ....
You added a new memorial 30 August 2016 for one Linda Rose Rainbolt (Find A Grave# 169103873) ....
I am curious as to how you came about this information ??? Since it is a very recent death, I have tried to find an obituary, with no success, and have wondered if you may have "walked" this cemetery ???? ..... You also maintain the "Dale Keith Rainbolt" memorial this cemetery ... Now, a logical guess would be husband & wife, but, your burial plot info have these 2 buried way apart ... There is also a third Rainbolt buried this cemetery, possibly the father of Dale Keith, but then again, a wild guess .... Thank-you for your time and assistance in this matter, as it is genuinely appreciated,
RAINBOLT Family Historian,

Margaret A. Smith FAG # 80009696
Have to ask, are you related to Margaret? And if so, do you have any more info on her? We have a Margaret Ann (nee Goza) in our family who married first a William L. Watts and then later married Jefferson J. Smith. Their birth years match the family info I have, just need to connect all the dots to confirm this Margaret is our Margaret Ann.
Thanks for all you do!
