Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Hi Ray,

Was wondering if you could add a family link to the Find A Grave Memorials for Wilson Flesher's parents.

Joseph - Find A Grave Memorial# 19842249
Nancy - Find A Grave Memorial# 19842250

Thanks for all you do!

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one entombed there or no of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Mary Elizabeth Minglin Graham
Hi Ray, I added two photographs of my great-great-grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Minglin Graham. Could you please revise her memorial in Find A Grave to show that she was born on August 22, 1864, died on June 12, 1951, and that she was married to John William Graham on December 30, 1885. It would be great if there was a Spouse Link between Mary and John. Thanks. David

I added a note in the Bio section about his daughter, Betty Marie Burr Radcliff; I can't link her to him since I did not create her memorial, you would need to contact that individual.

Thanks for your kind words.
No, I am not related to anyone near where I live in Waverly, Iowa. It is 10 miles from Clarksville and 20 mi. from Nashua. I completed the Lynwood Cem. on Find a Grave because it was not done, then I drove over 5-6 times to take photos of gravestones...ended up with 3500+ pictures. Twice, the groundskeeper had just mowed, and I had to brush grass off of every stone those days - ugh! ha
I went to three cem. in Nashua to fulfill Find A Grave photo requests, then ended up taking half of St. M before dusk arrived! I discovered relatives of people buried at Lynwood, so now I must go back and finish St. M, Greenwood and Oak Hill at Nashua! I enjoy finding relatives and linking a family.
I did all of St. Mary's at Greene which is another nearby town. They're all related too!!!
I really need to be spending time on my OWN family one of these days!!!!!!!
I am a newly-retired elementary teacher so you know I never had any free time for genealogy. My parents died long ago...too young, and I only have one aunt remaining on my mother's side, so I need to TALK with her before it's too late!
Good luck with your pursuits. Let me know if I can help.
Where is that Lorraine (was that her name?) buried?

Ella Myers
Ray said . . . "This entry is really confusing this way. This lady actually died a FLESHER, a wife of Ira Bliss FLESHER. She was born a MEYERS, a daughter of Loranza M. and Amanda A. MEYERS.
Can you put the maiden name (spelled either way) in front of the married name?
Also, she is seen elsewhere as Mattie Ella. She would be easier for people to find and identify if her given names were both included."

Hi Ray. I hear what you're saying but it does not match the head stone. I made the entry based on the head stone. It has MYERS in LARGE letters across the top and three people under it. She is listed under that as Daughter-Ella M (Flesher) Mother-Amanda A Father-Loranza M

So based on that I stand by the entry as it was seen on the head stone. Granted that may be wrong, but any other stranger would have entered it the same way. I just wanted you to see the other viewpoint and am not trying to argue whether it matches what really happen. But please remember, the vast majority of F.A.G.ers enter data from head stone info and not local knowledge or genealogy info.

I'm transferring her to you as I'm not related in any way, just doing cemetery surveys from the head stones. Have a great day.

John & Florence Flesher
Thanks for letting me know that I had not put in the proper months on these memorials. It was late last night and must have not double checked the dates. I appreciate you letting me know in fact I had the wrong day on John too.
