Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to Dave, Jane, Glenda, and everyone else who does their edits within the required 30 days!

It isn't about 'the numbers'. Higher numbers reflect nothing but the volume of work and time contributed to the site. I get not prize, not even a toaster, no matter how many memorials I create. I do this from the heart to tell people's stories, and to be sure their life here is not forgotten. About 35% of those I have created are for people whose family didn't even bother to claim their remains, yet my belief is that they somehow mattered. If that offends you, I am sorry you take it in a negative manner, but I can't fix that.

I leave all posts, negative and positive, on my wall, unless they are obscene. Those posts tell as much or more about the poster than they do about me. If you want to demonstrate that you are a loon, you are welcome to do that, too. We all need a place.

I gladly make transfers within site guidelines. Anything beyond that, I am always happy to make edits and additions. For any questions regarding those guidelines, please refer to the FAQ link below. Please use the EDIT tab for any additions or corrections.

RE: Composes photo
Thank you Jen. I am aware of what findagrave allows and it is good. I was just wondering why you have Hiram's headstone on Francis memorial instead of just saying no marker. Seems to me it would be confusing for someone not knowing. Or it could read unmarked grave. I did not see any notation of Francis or Lillian's memorial. My aunt is the daughter of Francis and Lillian.

Francis H Colpoyes findagrave memorial - it gives his name and date of death - rank was born in 1868 and his son Hiram was born in 1896. Please explain.

RE: Re:American Legion Post 5 dupes
I am done and think the cemetery looks better now. The de-dupper did not catch as many as I thought it would. So, I sent the rest to edit and that were done yesterday.

Even update R. Hatton's famous bio.

WOW! how are you so fast on edits/links, etc?!!! My fingers weren't off the keyboard. That is so much appreciated as unfortunately so many contributors don't makes edits/links or add information you send. Had to say thank you for all you do!

RE: Eva Bott
Jen, thanks for responding. I understand the guidelines about direct ancestors, but there's nothing saying that you cannot transfer my great-aunt's memorial to me.
I am from Muncie, originally, and still have sisters there, and all my parents and grandparents are buried within 2 miles of each other in Beech Grove and Elm Ridge.
I sincerely hope you may reconsider transferring to me. I understand that I can make edits and add photos, etc., and I appreciate that, but I just wonder what harm would come to transferring to me. Unless, of course, you are related to my great-aunt/uncle.

I did delete mine as I didn't realize the other was a BU and moved into the cemetery. I've made a note on the main page that as of today there are no dupes. What you can do in the future when you run accross these is just send a note to edit*at*findagrave (no stars) and ask them to merge the two memorials explaining which one is in the correct cemetery. That way the other person won't move theirs so the good one will then look like a dupe. Thanks anyway !!

Not if you have permission which I do have. Better read the guidelines again.
