|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family for the last fifteen years and have traveled several thousand miles just to take headstone pictures!|
I love cemeteries with all their simplicity and grandeur. The lives and stories that reside there is our history.
I am not into posting as many as I can as so many are doing. Yes it does help the families to locate their loved ones, but to me just posting the info is not enough! Where are the headstone pictures from YOU walking the cemetery??
So many of the posting are from people who went to the library and used the cemetery books to post to FAG!!!
I need to add something that must be said......
I appreciate ALL the emails that I get telling me that my posting is a duplicate of someone else's...... Really don't you think I know that?
My postings are MY family and I have more info than the person who posted! And from an email 05/10/13 from Mark who you can not send an email to or post to his page. If you go and look Frank McMahan was transferred to a MimeBelle who apparently speaks French and she copied MY info to her info for Franklin because of the way she spelled Rhodella! That is not the spelling per census and her death certificate which I have. And know one knows but me the correct spelling!
Yes I have used the proper channels and requested transfers only to never hear back.
So if you see a duplicate that you THINK I posted..

Hi, My name is Fred Whittington Jr. I was wondering if you are any relation to the Guinn family. Jess Frank Guinn is my Great Grandfather and his Daughter Velma Mae Whittington is my Grandmother. Don't really know most of my family from Oklahoma. Long story short, A lot of the Guinn family came to Tulare County California after during WW2. I hope to visit Oklahoma someday.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Duplicates|
The problem is when you go to link memorials together. If there are more than one for the same person then which one do you do links to? I checked out a few of the Emerts memorials this morning that have been linked together and it is so confusing with multiple memorials for the same person. No couple can have two/three children with the same name, birth and death dates or a child with two sets of parents with the same names, etc. I did not create Find A Grave nor did I make the rules. Other contributors have made it very clear to me that duplicates are not allowed, ever. If you have any problems with memorials being merged or deleted you will have to take it up with the people behind Find A Grave. I do not have anyones memorial merged or deleted but I have had to remove plenty of my memorials because the Find A Grave police told me I had too. Whenever you create a duplicate you are putting the info. out there and other contributors can and will have it merged with their memorials. I am sorry for your problems with this area of Find A Grave. I sympathize with you but please don't label me the Find A Grave police. I did not even read you contributor page until this morning.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Frederick Locke Emert|
Sorry but I really did not mean to upset you. I just noticed that there were three memorials for this person and I have been chewed out by other contributors for a few duplicates that I created when I first got on here. I will not bother you again. Again I am so sorry for upsetting you.

"Find A Grave contributor S McLaughlin has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Percy Treat.
Link to memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=45405841

Would you please attach Percy to his parents -
James M Treat #26187820
I will be glad to connect him to his parents' memorial, but you need to tell me who his parents were and their Find A Grave memorial numbers.
|Wayne Smith||Martha Brownlow|

|henry osborne||mason cemetery|
Mason Cemetery is in Concordia Parish. Thanks henry----Keep up the good work!
|vickie kennard||Thank YOU!|
It means so much to me and my family out here in California! Vickie
|Michael W Bruce||Gunilda Roberts|
Thank you for looking for Gunilda Roberts. I don't know why the request had Baby Roberts. Did you look for Gunilda?
I would think she must have a headstone unless someone is entering data from a data base and not walking the cemetery.
Michael W Bruce
I have transfered management of Michael Lloyd McLaughlin's memorial to your care.
