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.

(If she was married more than once, they just link her to her other husbands, people will see it)
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.

I do disagree with F.A.G. on obits and survivors (so they'll probably remove this). Obits are a wealth of information. I have been able to track and link families with the info that was in the obit. If survivors were worried about it, they wouldn't have their name put on tombstones along with their spouse.

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!

I also don't agree with the chalking ban. If a tombstone is so bad that the only way you can read it is to use chalk, that should be a good thing. At least for awhile, people will know who it is. If the picture is added to F.A.G., it'll be there for a long time.

The one with the long url link made your profile
page go all WONKY. 0_o Instead of word-wrapping to
the available space, it stretched the space out to fit.

Thanks sooo much for the excellent headstone photos.

I don't know if you read the sad and mysterious story of their daughter Josephine, "The Girl In Blue". It came up as a topic of discussion in the Forums and several Forum researchers helped track down her parents and ditdit & I made their memorials.

Cheers, Rich

Dear Mr. Brown,
In the Lawn Cemetery of Beaverdam in Pennsylvania,
how did you deduct Louisa Coats' middle name is Osborne. If this is true she is the sister of my great grandfather, Dr. Robert J. Osborne of Corry and Beaverdam.
