"This is the heritage of our country," "These stones -- they're not high-ranking officials or generals -- these are the enlisted men who fought the battles. These guys didn't write history, they made it, and we're trying to tell their story. –Sam Ricks|
Like a lot of members I started with FindaGrave looking for my ancestors to preserve memories for future generations. I cannot begin to tell you how Thankful I am for all the wonderful people that went out of their way to help me in fulfilling my quest. So I wanted to pay it forward and I found the best way I could do that is to work with veterans and their families. They have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom and as a spouse of a NAVY veteran this is the least I could do. Since then I have been working with a wonderful group of volunteers adding and editing veteran memorials to the National Cemeteries.
Currently I am working on Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery checking and cross checking every name for errors and or duplicates and sending requests for corrections when needed.
Creating Memorials: When I add a memorial with a known burial location I do not check the whole website to see if one had been made, only the cemetery it was located in. So please do not move a Burial Unknown Memorial into a cemetery where a memorial has already been placed and tell me I have to remove my "duplicated" memorial. FaG guidelines clearly states a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. Their standard guidelines give you 30 days to find your burial location on an unknown memorial, if not, please do not complain that a duplicate had been made.
Suggestions & Corrections: Please make sure your Memorial # is listed along with an explanation. If your correspondence is RUDE in any way, it will be ignored. This site was created to help others, not to criticize, harass or bully. Be kind to your fellow volunteers, since we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others on the amazing website as the Guidelines state Have Patience it will get done.
Lately I have had too many inaccurate requests to make changes to the memorials that I manage and it is getting very frustrating. While I do love getting information, I verify it is correct before I honor that request whether it is received by SAC or the new edit feature. If you have your message and email address disabled I cannot respond back to you to let you know of the inaccuracies. Please do not expect me to make any changes that you are asking if you are not going to give me the courtesy to notify you so I will have no choice but to delete the SAC and or decline the request in the edit feature.
Transfers: I have had many contributors asking to have the same memorial transferred to them. We cannot please everyone so I am only adhering to the four generation rule (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). As the guidelines state the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it. A wonderful way to gather all your ancestors together and achieve that goal is by setting up virtual a cemetery.
I will not transfer bulk surname requests. No exceptions so please do not ask.
If you do not want the memorial transferred but have accurate information to add, I will be more than happy to add it and credit you with the information.
I don't always send a thank you so I would like to give a SINCERE "Thank You" to all the contributors and photographers for all that you have done for me and for FindaGrave. It really means a lot.

hello I am looking for a William hardy and mine would of lived in Jefferson county in ohio and found that this one was born in 1929 and died in 1979 and was wondering if you by chance had paperwork or an obituary on him, and also if you help me find a Clyde Hardy which is his brother.

Find A Grave Memorial# 72681147
His father is Clark G. Wiley & his mother is Dorothy Irene Oglesby Wiley, both buried in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California. It would be nice if you could link them for genealogy purposes. His sister is a famous child abuse victim that you can find on YouTube under Susan "Genie" Wiley or Wild Child.
