If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
**PHOTOS*** I do NOT mind if you add a photo to a memorial that I listed. I do NOT mind if you take/save/steal (Or whatever term you wish to use) a photo that I have put up to put on yours or in another place. (It's public record once it is up and I do not own cyber-space.) After all, the internet is public domain. If one does not wish to have one's uploaded photo or info copied by another, then one should not put it up.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

***About MEMORIALS & TRANSFERS*****:
If you would like a memorial TRANSFERED because you are a family member, please drop me a line "EDIT" tab and then "MAKE A SUGGESTION" tab on the memorial itself, on far right corner and I will be glad to oblige, UNLESS it is one of my own family tree members. If you see a mistake in any of my transcriptions, or you have other information, such as maiden names or birth, death and marriage info, please also use the "EDIT" tab & I will correct them or transfer them, as soon as I physically can. Please do NOT use the "contact me" email link through FIND-A-GRAVE, most of it is caught in spam, so the "EDIT" tab is the best way. Please have patience, I am disabled now and do not get around here as often as I'd like.

Thanks for your permission for Sons of the American Revolution to use your photo to be eventually linked from the Patriot Index at http://patriot.sar.org
Just for the record, you are the one harassing me. Ive only told the truth.
How can people who haven't seen me in 40 years say anything about me. And, Harolds family wasn't close. They probley saw me a dozen times growing up and I wasn't over 10 years old. think about it. And the grandkids around here don't even know Sandy, never heard of her. They are in complete agreement. Obviously you don't know about the family or how many of us are still living. and as for Sandy, I only said what was the truth. Her mother married my cousin.Sandy was already born when they married. Sandy had another dad. You are chasing the wrong family tree. you are a trouble maker. plain and simple. leave me alone
Karen, I did not say Sandy was ONLY a step grandchild. What I said was that she was not blood kin to the Rooks. This is not about Sandy. she knows she is not blood kin. Never the less that's not what its about. this is about vandaling and abusing centuries old tombstones. Ancestry now forbids it, but caring, loving kinfolk would never do what you did to the tombstones. Im thru with you, and don't make up any more stuff about my attitude.
Karen, I beg to differ with you as to you being blood kin. you are not kin, sorry. and as for what others say about my attitude,is blatently untrue. Look, I am an old woman and remember family members, have them all in my records. guess what, you're not there ! I have your first emails saying yes you chalked the graves but It did no harm. the chalk is still there. Ive also talked to others at other cemeteries who say you did the same thing there. Look, ancestry does not own the graves. Local officials DO have the right to stop vandalizing. and as for nasty, vicious emails yours sure was nice, wasn't it. You seem to have turned the subject to being about my attitude. you better believe I have an attitude when you destroy my grandparents and great grandparents tombstones. by the way, ive talked to all living grandchildren and they all agree.

|Sheron Smith-Savage||Thomas Fling Obituary|
I just happened to find the Fling obituary when I was researching someone else. Since it is so often "iffy" to find info on someone you are researching, I always try to pass on information about someone else when I can, to help in others' research. I'm glad this obit was helpful to you.
Would you consider transfering Glynn Coleman Weaver and Mitchell Fred Weaver over to me? Thus us my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law. If not could you link the 2. Thanks!
|Gina Reardon-Gaddis||RE: Gina,|
I am so sorry for all the sadness you have been going through. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May God watch over you and your family and all you are going through. I will keep you in my prayers.
