========================================
DUPLICATE MEMORIALS
========================================
Before creating a memorial, I do a general search (leaving out a location/cemetery), to see if there is already a memorial entered for that name.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Duplicates can happen due to first-created entries (including ones with Unknown/Incorrect disposition) being missed, or ignored altogether when found.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I do NOT have the attitude of "Yay, I win, you lose, I found the grave first". If I find correct disposition information for an existing entry, I send it to the memorial manager.
========================================
TRANSFER REQUESTS
========================================
Out-of-Guidelines transfer requests were once considered (as a courtesy), but I have discontinued that due to a really bad experience with another "contributor".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Therefore, effective Sunday, July 17, 2011, NO OUT-OF-GUIDELINES TRANSFER REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED OR ACKNOWLEDGED!
========================================
HONORING VETERANS
========================================
I have a soft spot in my heart for veterans, and believe that they deserve our thanks and appreciation.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My beloved late father ❤️ was a World War II combat vet, and I couldn't be more proud of him!
========================================
MY FIND A GRAVE PHILOSOPHIES
========================================
The individuals memorialized on Find A Grave meant something to somebody, and I do not take that lightly!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All "Virtual Flowers" that I put on memorials are genuine, and from the heart, whether I knew that individual or not.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I DO MIND MY OWN BUSINESS ... CAN YOU SAY THE SAME ABOUT YOURSELF?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was raised with good manners, and I require good manners in any Find A Grave correspondence sent to me!

If your Find A Grave messages even have a HINT of being:
✔Abusive ✔Demanding ✔Disrespectful ✔Falsely Accusatory ✔Harassing ✔Inappropriate ✔Nasty ✔Offensive ✔Rude ✔Slanderous ✔Smart-mouthed ✔Threatening, etc
(all of which came from one particular "contributor"),
YOU WILL BE IGNORED, AND REPORTED, JUST AS THAT "CONTRIBUTOR" WAS!
========================================
NAMING A MEMORIAL
========================================
If the deceased was never married, the surname belongs only in the Last Name field. If there was a marriage, and they took their spouse's last name, then their Married Name would go in the Last Name field. THE LAST NAME FIELD SHOULD NOT BE LEFT BLANK, IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!
========================================
SUGGEST A CORRECTION
========================================
Click on the "Edit" tab on the upper right of the memorial, and then click one of the options under "Suggest a correction" to submit additional BONA FIDE details, and/or links to the memorial manager.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please do not enter SAC information through "Leave A Public Message", on a "Photo Caption", or as a "Virtual Flower" on any of the memorials I manage.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is an allowable 30 day time frame to act on SACs, so one notice to me is sufficient.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am getting way too many SACs from Find A Grave "Visitors". Make sure you are logged into Find A Grave before sending me SACs.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please state your source(s) when sending me additional information
========================================
VIRTUAL CEMETERIES
========================================
You may want to consider putting memorials in "Virtual Cemeteries", as they are great ways to keep folks "together".

RE: Tracy Edwin Tarr (#51449758)
Tracy:
I have used that web site many times.
The names on that web site are there because someone has applied for a military marker for the deceased. At the time the application was made that is where they said they were going to be buried.
The family may have changed there mind after the marker was ordered and they buried him somewhere else and placed the marker there.
This is one example. Forrester, Jepty born 1924 died 2002 is buried in Holly Hill. If you look him up on the National Gravesite locator you will find that it says he is buried in Union Memory Gardens at 32 Hospital Street. Union Memory Gardens is on Ledford Road not Hospital Street. Jepty was never buried in Union Memory Gardens.
The National Gravesite Locator does not list all veterans, only those who are buried in a veterans cemetery, or those who's family applied after 1997 for a military marker for a private cemetery
burial.
You need to read the information below the search boxes.

RE: Tracy Edwin Tarr (#51449758)
Thanks Tracy,
I have sent a edit to find a grave to have the address added to Holly Hill Veterans Park.
I find it hard to believe that someone applied for a military marker and never had it placed on Tracy Tarr's grave.
Thanks for your help.

Kind Regards

David James Hughes birthplace
Hi Kathy, I see your edit request for his # 144957443 birthplace to be Chadbourn, NC. That's the closest "town" to where I always heard he was born, Beaverdam, NC. But you may have the record? thanks, any info is welcome. Nancy

Glenda Emerson
Dear Kathy,
My name is Glenda Emerson and I have recently been searching Find A Grave for my relatives. I see that you created a memorial page for my uncle Jack Ridgers Whitmore, memorial #45186909.

I would appreciate having you transfer management of his memorial to me. I have been researching with Ancestry and have many more things I could add to it now.

My member # is 47333895.

Thank you for considering this for me.

Glenda

RE: Myrtle Portis
Thank you Kathy for you're help, I so appreciate it! :) I do already have some information on her, actually alot. But I'm searching for what seems like a needle in a haystack! I'm looking for someone who knows a living relative of one of her many childern. She gave birth to a son in 1918, my grandfather. I'm trying to find out who his father was and maybe meet the family I never had the chance to meet! Like I said....neddle in a haystack!
