C August Petersen
I deleted that one, since a search for C P would not have found G August Peterson--although a search for surname Peters would have...

I also noticed an Ida Petersen/Peterson duplication, but since mine had no dates--not even a burial date--there was no way to know if it was the same person you added, but probably was, or the other one would have been found by now. Anyway, I deleted mine there, too.

I have occasionally deleted an earlier entry if someone I have worked with on Find A Grave for months or years has made a mistake and made a duplicate from a photo. But for the most part it doesn't matter how much info is on the newer duplicate--that can be easily moved, as can links. Maybe people will learn to search in a cemetery just by initials before making a new entry. Because if a cemetery is mostly complete, it's not likely that someone who died 50 or so years ago was missed--much more likely is that there was a misspelling.

Anyway, I do appreciate you and so many others like you who continue to improve the accuracy of Find A Grave. Eventually the known burial places of everyone in the country should be accurately posted. That seemed an impossible goal back when there were just 50 million entries. But now that we're approaching 200 million, it sure seems possible.

80410699 and 80425160
One is Jens Jensen, Sr. and the other is Jens Jensen, Jr. The burial date on 80425160 was a pretty clear indication that they were two separate people...

Barbara Steen # 113300453
Hello, Barry.

Regarding the memorial for Barbara, I knew Barbara and Wayne when I was living on Vashon. I've written Elaine to see if she knew or was related to either of them. If she is I will gladly do as you suggest to delete my memorial. But, if not, I will ask that she delete her memorial. Should a relative come forward in later time I will gladly transfer my memorial to them.

Thanks for your note.

Barry, Thank you so much for going out and finding the location of his grave. The photo you added to his memorial is good. There is no need to go back and try to sort through the bushes. I like it. Thank you. Susan

RE: Provident Cemetery Sextant records
Hi Barry, I had the books transferred to a thumb drive & mailed copies of the book with the it to you a few weeks ago. Not received? I did make myself copies & can redo for you... wonder where the package is???
Let me know I can send it Fex-Ex so we have a better tracking if you would rather too.
