I Will NOT Do Transfers, Linking, Corrections Or Updates From Personal Emails.
PLEASE use the "EDIT" tab to request changes. This makes life easier for us. For you new members, this gives us your ID number as well as the memorial number.
Before sending an edit to update a memorial keep in mind this is “Find A Grave” a Grave Registration website, a tool for ancestry research Not Ancestry. Please respect those of us who try to make this information available. I am not interested in making this a complete genealogical information website, just a place to post gravesites with the information that should accompany that.
If you ever see GPS coordinates on any of the memorials I have created please know, I Didn't put them there and I Decline all edits for them. Not one of the coordinates sent to me have been accurate. Every device that displays GPS coordinates is different from the next and rarely accurate enough to be used to pin-point a single grave.
I’m sure some of you have your reasons for not wanting to be contacted such as “too much negativity” . But surprisingly enough issues do arise over edits and it becomes necessary to ask questions. If you offer no way to be contacted please do not send me edits.
Note: If emailing me, you Must put "Find A Grave" in the Subject field or it will be deleted.
The following are my feelings exactly. A fellow Graver worded it perfectly so I have "borrowed" their words. * * * * * * * Find A Grave does not require that I search the entire Find A Gave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. I do not do bulk uploads. Each memorial is created one at a time. If you create a memorial & it is listed as Burial Unknown or is listed in the wrong cemetery, then I am not going to find it before I create a memorial in the correct cemetery. Please do not move your Unknown Burial into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. I thoroughly check each & every cemetery prior to creation and I will know if any have been placed there after mine. As per Find A Grave, memorials listed in the correct cemetery (regardless of the memorial being created later) will always have preference over Unknown Burials. Memorials listed in the incorrect cemetery also fall under the category of an Unknown Burial because the burial place was obviously unknown if the person is listed in the wrong cemetery.
