Bio and Links
Bio Photo Any memorial page I have created I have a picture of the headstone.

If you want a photo officially request one, don't bury your request in a spouse or another family members photo request.

Too many volunteers are now asking for other volunteers to do their research, please try and do your own on your time.

I take responsibility ONLY for the information obtained from the headstone unless otherwise specified by me. There are very few exceptions.

Due to the changes and procedures for adding addition information it is very time consuming to include the source. Find A Grave DOES NOT provide a way to show where the information comes from.

In light of these changes and the automated edit system, which makes it almost impossible to deny acceptance of changes and addition, I have been transferring all memorial pages to those wishing to make edits. This too has become too time consuming.

Therefore, in order to include the changes whether the information is CORRECT OR NOT I feel I am being forced to accept all edits. I hate this part because I have had quite a few people send edits only to resend two or three times in order to make corrections.

If you find errors send corrections but do not, I repeat DO NOT ask me about the information posted or hold me responsible for the additions. This goes against all genealogical best practices, but the only other solution would be to take down all the memorials and pictures I have posted.

If you find an error,double listing or double picture please let me know so I can correct the problem.

I have in the past used a picture of the cemetery gate/sign with "Office couldn't locate a burial for this person" imprinted on it. If you get this posting and do find a picture of you persons tombstone, let me know and I will remove it.

Thank you

Dear Karen, sorry to trouble you. On the photo you took, there is just an x marked on the grave yet you knew she was 23. I wondered where you got that info. Her maiden name was Sutherland and she was born in Chigago. She died in Seattle 27 Aug 1907. We are trying to find out her husband's name.
Many thanks

Re: John's mother's death date---I was afraid you wouldn't accept the edit since it showed her dod as 1861 and John was born in 1862. That's all.

Sorry I confused you--I do that to a lot of people.

Permission to use photo

I am developing a history website for the city of Rainier and one page lists Rainier cemeteries with links to Find a grave. I would like to use your photo of the Hudson Cemetery sign. I will give you credit as the photographer.

Thank you
