People that think I should read the FAG guidelines, might want to try it themselves.

How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?

The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. INCLUDE OTHER MARRIED NAMES AS PART OF THE BIOGRAPHY SECTION. The 'maiden name' is only for her maiden name.
----------------------------
I'd like to suggest that if you're doing a photo request, and there is no stone for that person, then take a photo of where it should be. I do that because I feel that way they can see there is no marker and maybe have a better feeling having a photo of the location, with other markers on each side for location.

Also if I find a woman that was buried as Mrs.____ don't hassle me over that. It's bad enough that they didn't even use her first name, now some people want to do the same thing with her memorial. If you know her first name, tell me, don't just think I should list her the same as her husband.

When I first found Find A Grave, I was excited and happy to be able to add to it. But sadly it's not that way anymore. I can fully understand the feelings off some of the contributors that have become unactive. When I added memorials, I fully thought family would turn up, want them and fix anything they considered an error. But that's not so either. With the automatic edits, in 21 days, they apparently are made whether you ignored or declined them. There doesn't seem to be much control over your memorials anymore. Just because someone disagrees with the way I've added them, not even family, they can be changed. We are all different individuals, so I can't see why other people, if they're NOT family, should be allowed to change yours. I thought difference of opinion was a way of life, not your right, so I'm wrong. Memorials shouldn't be changed just because someone else thinks they should. I thought the important thing was they were on there for family to find.

Also, I'm tired of people whining because someone might not transfer a memorial. "It's all about the numbers." I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about. The number I added doesn't change, just the number I manage. So if I was in it for the numbers, I'd still be okay. Quit whining.

As far as transfers, I don't necessarily stick to the FAG guidelines as far as relation. If you're a relative, I don't mind transferring (that's why they're on there) BUT it does depend on how you ask/tell me!

Thank you for adding the mausoleum "grave photo" for Clifton. For some reason it seems hard to read / fuzzy. If you happen to be there again (when weather gets nice) and if not too much trouble, would you mind trying for another view?
Thanks so much.

RE: Thelma Pudder
Your # is higher on her site than the other one means the other one was added before yours. The other #: was 135676314 = Yours is # 135682054.
Maybe you can leave a note with the other person to see if you can either merge them together or have one deleted.
I believe you had her last name misspelled.

Roy and Bertha are in the Odd Fellows section, lot 229; Albert and Oaka are also in the Odd Fellows section, lot 228. The lady at the cemetery was very nice and helpful.

RE: Slocum
I know that I'm new to Find A Grave, and that we don't know each other. If it's helpful and you live in the area, I will be that the cemetery on Saturday at 4pm to do flowers for Memorial Day. I can also answer some questions if you would like.
Thank You,
Valerie Hunt

Slocum
Hi, I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer my Great Grandparents memorials to me? They are James Willard Slocum (#34946338) & Dorothy Slocum (#35010470) It would be very much appreciated.
Thank You,
Valerie Hunt

I've done some research on the family and hope true family members can help round out the picture. Thank you for your efforts and I can see where the Shug could have been interpreted. It looks like the gravestone cutter had chiseled S H U T and ran out of room for the last T and put it in smaller scale. Even wife, Mary, has the S in the last name reversed. Thank you again for all your volunteer efforts.
