thank you for the heads up on the duplication and photograph post. I have removed the flower which sets the record straight as the memorial has a photo. Thank you for all you do with find a grave.

Maybe you should just start your own website where you would not have to follow someone else's rules guidelines and uniformity.

To me they look out of place when there are 14,664 names in a cemetery and 2 are not capitalized.

I haven't seen a marker yet that was not capitalized. I thought we were copying what was on the markers.

The most compelling reason is that the guidelines say to use standard text. And their example is Unknown for first name and Unknown for last name.

From the FAQ's:

"What information do I include from a headstone?

Include all of the information on the headstone into the appropriate fields/dropdown menus in the memorial form. It is not sufficient to create a memorial with only a name and a headstone photo. Of course, if the headstone only has a name, then you cannot add information you do not have. However, if the information is on the stone, enter the information into the form.

If a headstone is not readable at all and you have plot information and a photo for the marker, please add the memorial as first name Unknown, last name Unknown. This is the standard. Please do not use other terms unless they identify the person such as Child, Twin, Infant, Adult, Male, Female, First name, Last Name."

May have found a least a family tree on ancestry that leads me to believe I have found a direct descendant through the daughter, Julia Iverson Patrick.

My personal e-mail shows....please contact me there to give you some details.

I am contacting you by e-mail. Yes, I am related to both the Lloyds and the Iversons. I worked with you in the past on cemeteries in Muscogee County, GA. Look for my reply in your e-mail.
