|Bio and Links|
OK..so I've been doing Find-a-Grave for a while now and have decided to change my bio a bit.|
Here are my thoughts on this stuff.
Relax..enjoy what you're doing otherwise you should stop before you get too far into it. No man is an island and this certainly can't be done alone.
TRANSFERS: In most cases I'll transfer any memorial that isn't listed in my family surnames. I transfer on a case by case decision. I don't have issues with the number of generations. If I've transferred a memorial to you, please be sure you can maintain it or make the changes that others request. If for any reason, you can't maintain the memorials I've transferred to you, I'll be more than happy to take it back. ..please don't ask for a transfer of memorials and then become an inactive member, and have all your memorials go stagnant...TRANSFER THEM BACK OR TRANSFER THEM TO SOMEONE WHO CAN MAINTAIN THEM.
PICTURES: If I've taken a picture or attached a document ... please help yourself...no need to give me credit. I don't need to toot my horn or have it tooted. I've added them to the memorials for everyone to use. I try to take pictures that are clear enough to read, but sometimes that isn't always possible. If you want to attach a picture to my memorials that are better than mine...please do so. I welcome them, but keep in mind I might use them in Ancestry.com if they're in my family tree....thanks again in advance.
EDITS: If there are errors in any of the memorials that I've entered please let me know. I'll be glad to correct them as well as make any changes necessary. PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON.
FLOWERS: PLEASE PLEASE don't use the flower section as a place to add a bio for the memorial...that isn't where it belongs. If I happen to come across one on a memorial that I've created, I will ask you to remove it. I'll gladly add it to the bio...just send me an EDIT. If it isn't deleted in a timely amount of time I will ask firstname.lastname@example.org to remove it.
DUPLICATES: Duplicates happen...it's impossible not to happen. We've all created duplicates. If you've created a duplicate, please don't ignore the courteous request to delete them. I will gladly delete mine. If you don't delete your duplicate within a reasonable amount of time, I will ask email@example.com to do so.
UNKNOWN LOCATION: ...OH my...this seems like such a touchy subject with everyone. How on earth are you going to know where everyone is buried unless you personally attended each and every funeral service. Now really...people are buried in sometimes almost nonexistent cemeteries in family lots, cremated, ashes scattered, ashes with family members, etc, etc...sometimes you have to create a memorial with "location unknown". If you should come across one of my memorials, and I've indicated "unknown burial" ..send me an EDIT..I'll gladly move it...don't created a duplicate...isn't that senseless.
It's hard for me to understand that these memorials belong to any one person....I believe they belong to "all" of us.
A sincere THANK YOU to all the Find a grave volunteers for all the hard work, help and dedication that you've give me.
This may sound a bit crude, but my theory is "if you don't want to share your toys...get out of the sandbox".

|Stone Finders||Burial unknon|
I walk many cemetery's and take so many photos I do not search the site just the cemetery. If you read the FAQ's that is all you have to do. It would take to much time to see if an unknown has been added. If I have 30 Smith's in a cemetery I search once for the last name. A lot of people who are cremated do have their ashed in cemetery's. Some do have them scatted. If someone is lost at sea family put a memorial in a cemetery and find a grave will keep that one in a cemetery.
In the FAQ's
NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.

Hello Connie and I'm pleased you like my photo I posted on your bio for Percussionist Derek Rieth. When noticed he had passed on, I was going to write an entry for he but I searched an found you had done already, so I just added the photo. Thanks and I feel you should submit him for famous status. Best always,
Thank you so much for taking the time to take a picture of the Sweatt stone. It is truly appreciated!
|Lucy Cusson||Esperance Ferland Cusson #134455819|
Ooops--My mistake. Esperance Ferland's mother's last name should be Charland not Ferland.
|Lucy Cusson||Esperance Ferland Cusson #134455819|
Favor: When you have a chance,Could you please post the following info for Emerance Ferland Cusson # 134455819
Emerance Clara Ferland Cusson, daughter of Jean Ferland and Emerance Ferland was Born: 23 January 1888 in Standon (St. Leon) Dorchester, Quebec, Canada. She married Louis Cusson, son of Damase Cusson and Celina Giroux, 16 May 1910,Saint Anne's Church, Berlin, Coos, New Hampshire
Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you for posting a picture of Louis Cusson grave stone. I like it. The day I was there the sun was shining so bright, it nearly blocked out the words on the stone. Lucy

I looked at Rufus and spouse, Jackson, but had no real proof, but I bet they are his parents.
I'll send the link to you where I found his bio.
