I am working on finding the graves of the descendants of Anthony Yerkes which are listed in the "Chronicles of the Yerkes Family With Notes On The Leech And Rutter Families" by Josiah Granville Leach published in 1904, and on finding the graves of those people mentioned in "Sketches of William Hicks, Abner Hicks, Jasper Hicks, George Harris, James Crews, John Earl and something of their Descendants With Comparisons of Present Conditions of Living With Those of Sixty Years Ago" by Titus Thurston Hicks, printed in 1926 and reprinted in 1954. I have virtual cemeteries for those that I have found.

Posting photos on FindAGrave does not automatically put them in the public domain. Please ask if you want to use any photos of mine and tell me what you want them for. My email is rafbeas at aol. If I find my photos used without my permission, I will take all necessary steps to redress the situation.

Do not email transfer requests. Use the Edit tab on the memorial. Transfers outside Find A Grave guidelines will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the deceased and explain what you have to contribute to the memorial that I can't add. I am glad to add any links (except to memorials with no burial location) or bio information that you send. I do not add links to memorials where the final disposition has not been determined. Do not put obituaries or other information on the deceased in a flower.

RE: Duplicates
Thank you - I will try and have a look at this in the weekend.
One of the people you are working with you approached me already and I have responded to her emails.
Thank you for all your work!

You sent me some information about duplicates that may have been made of memorials of mine.
Thank you for that.
I will check things - like the correct spelling and other info - and get back to you.
I have just returned from a trip so it may take a few days.
If you like you can contact me by email

RE: Dutch surnames
Thanks for the information. I suspect it is not just Dutch surnames that are corrupted. Here is what I think: Find-A-Grave needs to do something about this. There does not appear to be a way to contact their webmaster. It looks like F.A.G. wants the memorial contributor's to sort it out and police the database for errors and duplication; good luck with that! We cannot do it. In my opinion, the F.A.G. webmaster should design or buy a Boolean type program that totals the complete name parts into the whole name, then it filters and sorts the first, middle, and last names correctly as we contributors upload their names in real time. If you know how to contact Find A Grave, feel free to forward this to them if you agree.

RE: Second thought
Thank you for your reply. I will contact Find A Grave and see if they can transfer your name back to my name on the memorial.

Thomas Gerrard
I would like to know how you managed to receive credit for writing his biography. I made his memorial and did a biography. If there were things you wished to add I would have been happy to do it and thanked you for your consideration.

I am a direct descendant of Thomas Gerrard and will contact Find A Grave to remove your name from my memorial or if you can remove it yourself then let me know. I don't believe you can.

Duplicating tombstone photos
I can appreciate you traveled quite a bit to get to Elmwood Cemetery in Henderson NC but I don't think it's necessary for you to put one or two more tombstone photos on every memorial I have made that you took a picture for in that cemetery. If your photo is better than one I already have on a memorial, by all means, let me know and I'll delete mine. But to put up one (or more) photos that are either almost identical or less good than ones already on the memorial is just not needed, in my opinion. Please consider that a family member might come along at some point and want to add their personal photos to the memorials and having multiple photos of the tombstone keep them from adding theirs (unless they sponsor it, obviously). Let's work together to do the best we can for Find A Grave and the people who find so much good in it, okay? Cheers.
