I appreciate and will be happy to add links, dates, bios and make corrections to any of the memorials I have created. I will gladly transfer memorials of your closely related family members, as long as they are not relatives of mine. I respond promptly to each and every request!|
NOTE: I probably will not transfer to anyone who has been a member of F-A-G for less than a year, or someone who maintains very few memorials. Why? Because I've found that often someone will sign up, quickly request transfers of all their family members, then get bored and not respond or make corrections after the newness of the site has worn off.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR 'EDITS' OFTEN!
Memorial Naming Conventions (Per F-A-G Help)
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. IF FULL NAME IS KNOWN, USE THE FULL NAME AND NOT THE INITIAL.
No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field.
Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's surname as their new surname. If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
Techniques for getting GOOD photos of memorial stones/markers:
1) Go prepared! Carry a brush/small broom/weed clippers, etc. just in case some clean-up is needed before photographing a marker. (SOME PEOPLE ARE TOO LAZY TO EVEN REMOVE A FEW LEAVES!)
2) Take a pic of the entire stone with surrounding
area in case you need to go back and redo a photo. BY ALL MEANS TAKE A CLOSE-UP OF THE INDIVIDUAL'S MARKER! Look at the back of the monument as you may find additional information there.
3) On your camera, choose the proper resolution. Low settings allow for more photographs, but higher resolutions will give better photos, especially on those hard-to-read stones.
4) Avoid taking photos with the sun directly behind you. The shadow will be unattractive and you may recognize your own image in the photo.
Photos made when the sun is behind the monument tend to glare...not good for a monument photo!
THE VERY BEST TIME FOR PHOTOS IS ON AN OVERCAST DAY FOR THE VERY BEST COLOR AND NO SHADOWS OR REFLECTIONS.
5) *MOST IMPORTANT* Plan your camera position. For stones that are flat to the ground, photos NEED TO BE TAKEN FROM ABOVE. For stones that are positioned vertically, PUT YOUR CAMERA AT WAIST LEVEL OR KNEEL DOWN TO TAKE THE PHOTO.
6) IF YOU CHOOSE TO POST A PHOTO COPIED FROM ANY PUBLICATION, PLEASE CROP, STRAIGHTEN AND CORRECT THE LIGHTING OF THE PICTURE BEFORE POSTING TO ANY OF MY MEMORIALS. IF YOU AREN'T ABLE TO EDIT THE PHOTO, PLEASE SEND TO ME TO EDIT AND POST. **NO DEATH CERTIFICATES OR OTHER DOCUMENTS POSTED TO MY MEMORIALS, PLEASE**
From Find-A-Grave Help: "SCANNED PHOTOS SHOUD BE CROPPED WITH NO SURROUNDING WHITE SPACE."
PLEASE BEFORE YOU CREATE A NEW MEMORIAL, CHECK TO SEE IF ONE FOR THAT PERSON HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED. IF ONE HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED AND THEY ARE RELATED TO YOU, KINDLY REQUEST A TRANSFER...MOST FIND-A-GRAVERS ARE HAPPY TO TRANSFER RELATIVES TO THEIR RESPECTIVE FAMILY MEMBERS.
PLEASE USE PROPER CHANNELS TO: SUBMIT REQUESTS, SUGGESTIONS, ETC. THROUGH THE EDIT TAB IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL TO AVOID ERRORS. CLICK ON THE TAB AND THE SELECT "Suggest a correction or provide additional information: AND TYPE IN YOUR REQUEST. If you request the addition of an obit, please include publication source and date.
*PLEASE DO NOT ADD OBITS IN THE FLOWERS AND NOTES SECTION!*

Curious why the flower/tokens were turned off???
|Walter Doernbach||RE: Hester Photo|
NP....I'm glad to help...
|Head Hunter (Maria)||Florence G..... 1926-|
I removed her acct as requested. As you know many markers are not dated after one has passed and I followed the Find A Grave rules as to those who are birthdates before 1931. Please let her know I meant no disrespect if it offended her. Thanks
|gayther wilcox||Clara, Shy Peason, Gladys Gilliland|
Thank you very much for the transfers.
|gayther wilcox||Wiley Durey Gilliland|
Thank you so much for the transfer.
|gayther wilcox||Transfer of Bertie Bernice Vaughn|
Thank you for the transfer.
|Troy Clowdus||Steve Clowdus|
Regarding the discrepancies in birth dates on tombstones the consensus is that Mack's is the correct date and Steven's is not. Thanks again for your help.
Steven Clowdus is my great great grandfather and his mother was Phoebe Hardwick not Eliza Wilemon. He and his brother Mack were twins and there mother Phoebe died giving birth to them. There father William married Eliza later following the death of their mother. Thanks for your help.
|Judith Nan Lewis||RE: Scanned obit removal, please|
I'm so sorry. I missed deleting that one, when I went back and deleted the newer ones, and deeply appreciate your letting me know it was still on the memorial so I could remove it.
Until Later......God Bless,
|Connie ||RE: Edit requests|
Thank you for the heads up on the edits. I seem to always fail to look at that tab when I log in.
If any of the memorials I have created are your family members and you would like for me to transfer these to you please let me know.
I would be more than happy for you to manage them.
