REMEMBER: The United States Social Security Death Index ONLY gives the last known address or location lived in and the state where the number was issued. It does NOT mean that the person was born there or died there. *********************** PLEASE DO NOT POST PHOTOS OF OBITUARIES ON MEMORIALS. ANY MEMORIALS THAT HAVE OBITUARY PHOTOS PLACED ON THEM WILL BE REPORTED TO FINDAGRAVE TO BE REMOVED. THESE ARE NOT ALLOWED. PLEASE TRANSCRIBE (TYPE) THE OBITUARY OUT AND STATE THE PAPER AND DATE AND SEND IT THROUGH THE EDIT TAB TO BE ADDED TO THE BIO SECTION.
Note about the Edit selections: Since this has now made it easier for people to send in changes on dates, names, death and birth locations and links to family, I have been finding that many edits have been INCORRECT and I am the one that receives the NASTY emails from those who find it hard to be polite and ask nicely to fix the errors that are sent by other contributors who try hard to help make the memorials complete. FROM NOW ON!!!!!....I will NOT accept ANY edit until I have researched what is sent. To make the edits faster, emailing me the information at the same time would make it easier to know WHERE the information is coming from and this includes FAMILY LINKS.
If you do send an edit, I will do research before I post the edits. I may accept or decline your edits. Please be sure to READ the email that is sent you from findagrave telling you if your edit has been approved or declined. If it has been declined, READ the reason why in your email. When an edit is declined we have to choose from a drop down menu as to why the decline is being made so the email will reflect this and at times I will put more information in with the decline.
FYI: Ancestry.com is NOT a source. It is a location where to put your family tree. Documented sources are Birth and Death records/indexes, census for some of the information, military records, obituaries, etc.
Memorial# 136004802 No reply needed - Thank you so much for the work you have done at St. Mary-Waukegan and especially for all the veterans that are buried there. I am a veteran and have tried to honor as many as I can find at St. Mary-Waukegan, Oakwood and Union Cemeteries. I have finally learned to create a note with flowers/flag/boots stating the source and typing the information. Thanks again!!!
Evans, Skokie IL Thank you for posting the grave photos and making me aware of the incorrect dates. I also hope I corrected the sideways photo. On my iPad it was upright but on my phone it was sideways. Keep up the great work on findagrave.
Marie Beneventi, Skokie Thank you so much for the grave photo! And the edits. To my knowledge, some of these memorial parks aren't very photographer friendly, so I appreciate your effort. You are busy!
Fannie Baron Thank you for the transfer. Just for the record, I check the edit requests too. I often find more info than requested when I do and so it's even better! I so appreciate your work here!! Judi
