|I'm out of town for a few weeks with limited access to e-mail so will be handling the "other edits" when I return.|
Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.)
I am giving priority to edits done the "new" (Dec 2013) way using the individual options for dates, names, etc. rather than the old-style "Suggest any other correction or addition". I recognize the deficiency of not being able to add a note to me with the new-style. The beta testers lobbied to have that removed. If you think it should be restored, go to the forums and lobby for it.
I have entered a number of memorials from cemetery registers. I know these are incomplete (and possibly incorrect.) You may send SACs as fast and frequently as you like. You do NOT need to limit yourself to 20/week or any fixed number per day.
I am more than willing to consider the transfer of any memorials I have entered to others who have a closer relationship, especially if the intent is to improve the data here instead of just collecting relatives. Please state your relationship in the SAC when requesting a transfer. If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.)
And please don't tell me the reason you want management is so you can link to parents and spouse. It makes me think you either don't know how to use Suggest a Correction to request such updates or you doubt my ability to create the link.
Again, please don't send corrections to my e-mail. Use the Edit/Suggest a Correction on the memorial.
I (may) have removed my e-mail from normal display since that seems to be the only way to avoid having transfer requests or other corrections sent directly to that address. If you want to contact me for another reason, I use gmail and my ID there is billroha.
I normally make changes from Suggest a Correction within 24 hours. Sometimes it may be longer if I'm on an extended trip. If it gets near the 30-day maximum time, feel free to send another Suggest a Correction.
Earlham Cemetery photographs:
At one point local photographers had whittled the list down to 10 requests.
11/22/12 - 374
12/20/12 - 151
3/29/13 - 194
3/31/13 - 154
8/26/13 - 194
(Another contributor has photographed every memorial at Earlham Cemetery and is now in the long process of adding them. Once he finishes, I may take another look at checking out any remaining photo requests.)
A pet peeve is misspelling "William". As of March 3, there were 1713 with 3Ls instead of 2. I sent updates for all of them. Status is:
3/11 911 pending, 7 declined
(The declined are from people who couldn't see there was a change. When explained to them, the change was made.)
From the Find A Grave FAQs:
What are your memorial naming conventions?
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank)
I naively assumed that knowing the FindAGrave standards for names would make a difference to some. Lesson learned. For those who care:

|Clinton Slayton||>> A pet peeve is misspelling "William".|
This is of course a font issue, it is extremely difficult to see lower-case ells and eyes when there are too many, whereas two few are a bit easier to make out.
It may occur in the future that these letters will be changed in shape to overcome what will continue into the age of "texting." It cannot come too soon for me, I have to filter my one Ancestral Quest database to catch the ones that I have unintentionally created.
|Clinton Slayton||Slatons - Lizzie and Luther|
I sent an EDIT to marry them, her will is online and clearly states that Luther was her husb who predeceased her. Thanks for any attention you can give to this.
|Mezzo||Marie M Robbins|
In Earlham Cemetery, Indiana. I have submitted a correction to you for her birthday. The date is from her SSDI form and has a different year than what is on the stone (1898 versus 1899). Not sure which you want on the memorial, but just thought I'd let you know.

|Delna Powell||Transfer Memorial|
Please transfer memorial 73885554 to me so I can remove parents, siblings and Children and correct birth date and husband link. The husband of this memorial is Alfred P. Jones who is buried in the same cemetery.
The memorial is mixed up between memorial 152224678 which is our family. Memorial 738855554 has a correct death date and burial place, but the birth date is for memorial 152224678. The husband of memorial 152224678 is Noah Jones memorial 152224760.
I appreciate your help in correction this memorial.
