I take pictures of every stone in the cemetery. Therefore I have no way of knowing if the person is still living. I mean no disrespect by adding them.
Everyone deserves to be recognized with a memorial. Please keep in mind that deaths are public record. Cemeteries are also public. I will be more than happy to add family links. Please just send request through the edit on each memorial, instead of asking for transfers.
Findagrave is doing a great service for us and I appreciate it. So please, remember that we are all in this for the same reason. To help others and pay tribute to all those who have gone on before us.
Please do not ask for transfers if you are researching family surnames. That isnt fair to the actual descendants. Please send a message through the edit, on each memorial. That way I can find the memorials quickly. If they are in my family tree at all, I may choose not to transfer them.
I am quite aware of FAG rules. I just dont like periods. Edits sent may be ignored or declined if they only want to add periods. Sorry.
Thank you for transferring my family member, William Hamilton Fitch to me! I appreciate you and your work here on Find a Grave in creating, not only William Hamilton Fitch's memorial, but also his wife's Malisia Jane Sneed Fitch's. In transferring them, I can now add more to their memorial and give honor to my family members. I appreciate it so very much! Again thank you for your time and for all you do!
