Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Name is Ronald A. Sykes, Sr, and have been working on my family History for over 40 years.

Any additional information, adding bio's, changing .or adding names, dates and location can be done, without asking me, by hitting the edit button.

With the new system of FaG, I OK the links, and changes, without question. However, this also means, I may or may not have linked or corrected memorials.

I am more than happy to any correct a problem, or link family members. As far as Transfer goes, please look at the rules set down by Find a Grave, before asking. I will take a look on a case to case basis, but normally follow those rules. Demands from, or rude people are always ignored. If you would like credit for something added, either put it in the bio section, or let me know and I will add it for you.

I normally make all requests within 24 hours. If not, don't worry, I will get to it. Sometimes, I take a day off, too.

AGAIN. I follow the rules of Find A Grave dealing with Transfers. I will make an exception on a case to case bases. However, those who are rude, or feel they have some kind of right, need not request.

You My permission to use any of my Headstone photo, for your personal use.

Hi, Ronald, I just wanted to let you know that I made all of your requested edits, except for changing the date of birth. I found the 1918 draft card which gives the 1873 date, but since the inscription says 1875, I went with that.
Thanks, Ellen

Hi How are you,
I am looking for some more info on Bernard Kilkelly shown above. I am in Ireland and trying to trace some of Bernard's siblings over here.
Is there anywhere I might find information on his siblings? Maybe an obituary ?
I would be grateful of any help.

RE: John Adams Campbell
I do not accept calculated dates of birth. All memorials on FindAGrave appear on Subscribers to Ancestry then see the birth date and thinking it is from a primary or secondary source add it to their databases.

This perpetuates incorrect information. Primary or secondary sources are important - below is a website that explains the value of historical records and sources.

This is a great resource from Elizabeth Shown Mills who is the author of Evidence Explained:

Your edit:

Is this a calculated birth date or do you have a source that you can refer me to?

Thank you for your help.

Tony Agoff
Find A Grave Memorial# 112104208

First Name:

Your edit will be declined.

If you used the World War I Draft Registration Card for your source you need to check the copy of the card rather than relying on the index. His signature is Anton, not Antone.

He is listed as Anton Agoff in the Butte and Tacoma city directories.

However, his burial index record at Lake View; the Washington Death record and the newspaper articles regarding his death all refer to him as Tony.

Find A Grave Memorial# 112103045

Your edit:
Maiden Name:

Will be declined.

Although the Washington State Death Records list her parents with the surname of Nelson this is contradicted by her marriage record and her obituary.
