RE: edits
I found the problem...When Find A Grave tell me they send you a notice to accept correction it's not by email

Go to your profile page...Under your name are 5 white tabs...Click edits one...There are going to be a lot of them for I've been busy...You don't have to do all at once if to much time is involved....When you click on edits tab...It tell you how many you have pended....please click on accept on each....move to bottom of page when your done...I think you have to click on something there to make changes....It's really easy but if you have a problem, feel free to let me know,....It pretty much explains it step by step....When you're done accepting all correction...They will show up on your memorials...From now on I'll be sending on requests for links and other info on this edits tab...Much easier for you, once you get all these you have done...Please check tabs daily as I might be sending often...Thanks for your kindness & time doing this...It's a hugh undertaking, but I'm getting there...Linda

RE: edits
I was afraid of that...Don't know why you wouldn't get them...Must be a problem somewhere...Find A Grave has a lot of problems, this being one, at times...I'll try to contact them...Hope all my work and changes are not lost...Thanks for all your help...Will let you know if I find the problem....Linda

RE: collins
My goodness, don't know how you stand it out in the cold wind that long, but what you do will benefit so many in the long run..
I'm trying to search history of people in so many cemeteries to do the same..Very rewarding!

Keep up the awesome work and I will too!
