Despite what some of you may think, I do not intentionally "plaster misinformation" all over the memorials. I have researched most of the memorials I have submitted, trying to make sure the information is correct, looking for obituaries, census records, birth and death records. Sometimes I get it wrong, but I don't think that's very often. If you don't want information posted, don't send it to me. I have taken up posting the contributor number of those sending changes through email. If you don't want your number listed, don't send the change.
- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.
- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.
- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs. Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.
I have received nasty messages from some who disagree with my choice of staying with the original convention. If you supply a middle name, this will solve your problem.

Thank you for your quick response. Sorry you didn't know the families.
|Barb McQueen||Great grandparents|
Hello, My name is Barb McQueen and I have been researching for years to find the bio family of Katherine Ann Abell Malone Tinsman. She was my daughter in-law Brenda McQueen's mother. The family knew nothing of her family. I recently found a memorial on Find A Grave and contacted the man who added it and found out he is related to the adoptive mother's side. He gave me information to find her parents and grandparents etc. Do you know anything of the Abell family or any of the Malones?
