Bio and Links
Bio Photo It may be awhile to act on any requests due to family illness.

Having a great love for genealogy, visiting cemeteries is a way to "get to know" some of my ancestors, cousins, aunts and uncles especially when there is no other photo available.

If you see a photo that I have posted that is unclear due to resizing or want the full photo, please email me and I may be able to provide the unreduced photograph.

Effective immediately: when you send me links to parents or spouse, I will not be able to add the links unless you give me both the name and the link number and the request is made via the edit field (no emails or message on my contributor page). This is to ensure that the link is made to the correct person.

I copied some of this from someone else's contributor page and find that it applies to my expectations as well:

TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule when I have added a tombstone photograph. I will be happy to add additional information or links. I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances. In many cases, I will make transfers when I have not added a tombstone photograph.

REQUESTING TRANSFERS: Use the "Edit" button; I will not respond to email or contributor page transfer requests. This helps ensure accuracy. Please do not request multiple transfers in one message; one person per request. Do not send requests like "transfer all Millers in this cemetery." To comply with transfer policy, you must fully explain your relationship to the individual.

LINKS: While genealogy is a secondary function of Find A Grave, I think linking makes Find A Grave more informative and is a great genealogy tool. Again, use the "Edit" button. I will not respond to email or contributor page requests. One person per request. For example, if you want to link all the children of a couple to the parents, send an individual request for each child. I will not add links without the link number and name.

PICTURES: I take pictures for people to enjoy and use as documentation in their research. Therefore, you may use them for your personal needs. However, if you republish them, add the following: WPO Patti, Find A Grave contributor 46588659. Under NO circumstances are the pictures to be used in a "for sale" publication (or website) without my express written permission for each item.

OBITUARIES: I will not add an obituary without a source. If you see one of my memorials with an obituary attached and it contains either living individuals or no source, please send me a suggestion through the edit field so that I might correct it to agree with findagrave rules.

Martha Ellen Duvall Turner
I have been informed that the memorial I created #36776561 for Ellen Duvall Turner is a duplicate. I created mine in 2009 and you created yours in 2007. By rights, since you did create yours first, it should be yours. I will gladly delete mine but first I need to know if this person is family to you.

Also, I hate to delete mine since it has a picture of the gravestone.

Looking to hear from you.

Thank you. Calvary Cemetery

Just wanted to say thank you for everything you did with the edits sent for Calvary Cemetery.

In no way whatsoever do I mean any disrespect for all the great work you do. You do great work!!!!

My only intention when posting photos is to alert the creator of the memorial page about a different date, name added, etc that I may see when posting the photo. I think it would be rude of me to place a photo on a memorial page you made and NOT tell you something I noticed. Then you can decide what if anything to do. I approach it from the standpoint that if the situation was reversed I would certainly want someone to alert me about a different date or name or etc.

I took over 500 photos there and am all done. You should not receive any more edits after today. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon taking the photos, row by row. Found quite a few new entries also.

Good luck and good hunting.
