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 a contributor on this site for over 14 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.

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

RE: Charles Wagner
hmm. it was a Charles Wagner in Texas is all I recall, now. he had a wife and around 5 children, but the only name that sticks is Thekla, which is my Charles Wagner's mother's name.
thank you for checking, Joan.

Military Rank
Thanks for your recent note. I did not know that. My parents, grandparents, and great grandparents were all in the Army and are now all in Arlington, with their military ranks included. I know they were all proud of the ranks that they had achieved.

Charles Wagner
Hello, Joan,
In my search for my great grandfather I came across an intriguing posting you made to Find A Grave, and wonder if you've ever connected with family of Charles Wagner buried in San Antonio, Texas? I would like to compare notes, as I have often wondered if my great grandfather ran off and remarried. if so, this might possibly be him.

Please forgive the multiple messages. I call it a senior moment as I kept hitting the wrong button! Just trying to thank you for the transfer. Greatly appreciated.

Joan: thank you so much for doing all your hard work! I am curious on Elah Bridges - where did you find the info that she was buried in this cemetery. She may be the elusive mother of my husband's father. Thanks for any information. I do have the death certificate but that's all.

Thank you so much for the work that you've done to document my family's lives.
