Bio Photo Just a friend!

Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been an active contributor on this site for over 14 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches. Just a hint, most people will not respond to your liking when bullying tactics are used.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

RE: Reinhard Loessberg # 44849861
Yes, his parents names are John George (J.G is on the headstone) and Anna Katherina (on her headstone). If you look at her memorial, Reinhard's memorial is linked in the bio. But thank you for being thorough, if in doubt. . .

RE: Robert L. Ferguson

Robert L. Ferguson
I think you may have declined my grave memorial suggestion & I appreciate your rapid feedback!!
Its not my intent to disagree with you but rather to correct any bad information I may have. I've been working on the Ferguson's in LA for a while & it sometimes gets confusing. Some of the information I have on Robert L & wife Laura Roberts came from L. C. Ferguson (12389751)who informed me that they were his parents. Some other information he provided was not too reliable but hopefully he would properly identify his parents.
Can you help me? What was the bad information I offered in my edit? Do you have additional information on the Ferguson's in LA that you can share? Any help would be greatly appreciated but understand if I'm asking too much.
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.

Thanks for your prompt response to link my cousin's memorial to his parents. I applaud what you do and appreciate the help it provides to someone searching for family members.

RE: SELA Veterans Cemetery
When I first started photographing I had up to 99% photographed. In fact, same day photographing 3 funerals were going on. If I would of known of the military site & how to use it, I would of had everything updated. Will be in the area this coming Thursday, will have to play by ear with this nasty weather we've been having.

RE: James Creelman
Thank you for your quick reply. Can he be considered for 'famous' status? I made a small change to better facilitate this.

Joan, thank you for adding a picture of James Creelman. I've never seen this one before. I'm curious where you came across it.

Also, is there a way we can upgrade James Creelman to the famous category? He certainly was in his day.

Best Regards,

J. E. Creelman
