Thank you

Just a quick note of thanks for taking/submitting the photos of the

graves of my parents:

Julie Ann Hays #62138159


William Carl Hays #69975856

It was a nice surprise to find this website especially when I found

out someone had taken the time to post pictures of my parent's

graves. Thanks for doing so when the tulips were in bloom.

Re: your find-a-grave entry #69816014
Rich, as I continue to research multiple families, I notice you are identifying subject gentleman using the first name Augustus...although you may have access to info I don't, my research on only supports his first name being August, including his death record & multiple other sources...I bring this up only to try & have all of our work be as accurate as possible... Please be additionally aware that I have routinely been referring all interested parties to find-a-grave within my own work, & will shortly be conferring with Church personnel on whether it is possible to actually include a find-a-grave referral within the Church's computer program... I ALSO WANT TO STRESS THAT, AFTER RECENTLY FAMILIARIZING MYSELF WITH FIND-A-GRAVE, ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO UTILIZE FIND-A-GRAVE WHEN I COULD NOT OTHERWISE FIND ANY DEATH RECORDS...SO, KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK, & IF I CAN EVER BE OF ANY HELP TO YOU, FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT...REGARDS

Your entries are being duplicated
Heh, Richard...thought you might want to know that someone carrying the monicker "butterfly" is duplicating your entries...appears she has only recently begun, & simply may not know what she is doing...obviously don't want to discourage newcomers, but instead nicely educate them...Regards from a volunteer genealogist
