"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed. They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most. |
The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor." -- Jeff Gonyea

|KaysRoots||RE: Edits for (#42842032)|
Brian: You are right - the parents listed on my bio & his death certificate were Andy (Andrew) Price & Mattie (Annie Elizabeth) Norvell. I hesitated because Martha Ann E. Price (17688395) has no maiden name on her memorial. I will link them to Albert but will not add the middle name of Johnson unless you come up with a legal document that has his middle name on it.
I do not add information that only comes from "family trees".
Brian: You sent edits for Albert Price (#42842032) which would link his father, mother, and then you show a middle name of "Johnson". I am very much aware that death certificates are many times incorrect, but can you tell me where you found the information for the edits you have ask me to correct on Albert's memorial?
Thank you for your interest.

I agree with you and I work very hard to find information for all the Memorials I add. I do this out of respect for the lives they lived and for their families that come later so they can find out something about their ancestors. I especially like the older obituaries because they have so much about the deceased life.
|JoAnne Peake||ANOTHER YEAH|
YEAH. I agree with the post before me regarding your profile post. We do not OWN these people, and I agree our intent should be to honor the memory not collect trading cards. I don't intend to have a K gillion memorials, my concentration is only on my family line. I don't have time to sit and read the OBITs everyday, gheezzzzze. My goodness, I have had a family member die, and before I even have time to warm up the computer, someone has already put MY FAMILY member into their MEMORIAL BANK making their grand total now of 4.5K, when do they get enough. Makes me so mad because then I have to go and request a transfer and having THEIR name attached as the original.
I read your post, I agree with you I hate it when some have so many post and you send information to them and they never post it. I wish I could find information on all the memorials. We should all leave a little history about ourselves.
|Jan Rubenkoenig||George Washington Atwood|
Brian, can I get the picture removed from this memorial? Find A Grave Memorial# 5049873. It was erroneously identified as George Washington Atwood but is in fact George Washington Blackmon. The reason I know is because they are both my GGgrandfathers. I would hate for another researcher to think they had found a picture of G.W. Atwood or for a relative of G.W. Blackmon's to see it identified as G.W. Washington.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the Yancey transfer
wondering how you felt about transfering the other Yancys in that same family??
