Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in Genealogy for over 24 years. Became a Professional Genealogist in about 2008. I have an Associate of Science Degree in Science that was awarded on 16 Jun 1982. I am presently working on my Certification Portfolio for my CG. Found Find-A-Grave in October 2009, and joined. I feel that it is a good way to keep the memory, of those who have passed away, alive. Will transfer a relative to you, unless it is my relative also.

Quoting another FAG contributor and agreeing.

"I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them".

I would like to thank Contributor Bernice for this thought, and also say that I agree with her and the original poster.

Hi...This is a duplicate and it would be wonderful if you could add your grave pictures to her memorial.#9255212...She is my cousin.

Thanks Rose

Lena J Wiley Russell #97811828
I just submitted a name change for my Great Grandmother Lena Jane Wiley Russell #97811828. Her memorial currently has her first name spelled Lenna. My mother says that it should be onlt one "N" -- Lena.
I'm not sure if you get the request, or how this works. I'm just giving you a heads up. Thanks so much for helping out.

You might want to move her to Camp Nelson National Cemetery with her spouse. You have her in a family cemetery in Camp Nelson.

Lenna Jane Wiley Russell #97811828
Hello Anthony, just wanted to let you know that your #97811828 for "Lenna Jane Wiley Russell" may be in duplication with #10956431. Lena is my late husband's 3rd cousin 2x removed. Lena' mother, Nancy "Nannie" Ellen Bedwell (my late husband's line) was the wife of Eli Robert Wiley, Lena's father and mother. I certainly appreciate all the volunteers at Find-A-Grave as I have submitted many pictures also. Volunteers are usually criticized before praised! Thank you so much for all you do! Cindy

RE: In Re: Rev. Joeph W. Styke #80942064
They will merge just fine. Find A Grave goes by what is on the memorial stone as far as spell and all the Stykes in that particular cemetery are spelt with the "Y". A note can be made on the memorial about the spelling. After they are merged you can send edits or request a transfer from me if you are related at all, which I think you are.

No, I'm not related. Find A Grave will only keep the oldest memorial, which is the one I have, but they can be merged since you have all those links attached. They don't want duplicates. The obit must have the wrong spelling? as the stone says Styke.

What is the problem? I didn't create this memorial, but took it over from BookGoddess when she was banned from Find A Grave.

Thomas Jefferson Watkins
Hey Anthony! How's it been. I just wanted to let you know that I've added a memorial for Thomas Jefferson Watkins, 126664172, and his wife Mary Madoline Colvin, 126664401. I didn't know if you wanted to link TJ to John Andrew's page.

Hope all is well and hope you'll be at the reunion this year!

RE: Photos
You're welcome. I transferred both of the new memorials. I didn't link them, because I wasn't positive on the relationship.
