|I have met many wonderful people on Find A Grave. Thanks to all the contributors for all you have done and continue to do. Thanks everyone for all the suggested corrections, and extra information provided to me. |
Unfortunately, there have been a number of individuals who do not understood that we are volunteers, who have been rude, who have been otherwise abusive or who have been frankly bizarre. Because of this, I will follow the Find A Grave guidelines. It is about the hunt, not the numbers. But dealing with some of the Find A Grave members and interlopers, I have learned to follow the guidelines.
UPDATES AND CORRECTIONS:
I am always happy to to update or correct memorials but PLEASE use the "EDIT" tab on individual memorials to suggest information corrections or additions. This sends a direct link to the memorial as well as your own profile page. If a request is left on my profile page it will be ignored and deleted. I just don't have the time to search for the individual memorial and then make the update.
If you discover that I have made a mistake or created a duplicate later than one you created, please use the Edit tab and send me the correction and I will delete the duplicate immediately. And please be nice. A simple request is all I ask. I strive to have my memorials as accurate as possible, but I am human and I will make mestakes.
I will only transfer listings of one's direct relatives within four generations as defined in Find A Grave Guidelines. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. Considered using the Virtual Cemetery feature. It's an easy way to collect all of your ancestors either in one big VC or you can have several VCs for various family lines.
When requesting a transfer, use the EDIT TAB on the memorial and state your relationship. If it falls within Find A Grave guidelines I will complete the transfer. If there is no relationship noted, the relationship is outside Find A Grave Guidelines or the request is posted on my profile page, it will be ignored and deleted.
What calls us to find the ancestors? It goes beyond a simple curiosity. We are taken over, compelled, as if possessed by something bigger than us that is begging to be revealed. There is one of us in most every family, called to be the scribe. I am but one of the many in the long line of storytellers of our clan. Like others I am called to gather and assemble the ancestorsóto breathe life back into them as far back as we can reach. We take what we find and chronicle the facts of their existence, remembering their names and who they were and what they did. They are the sum of who we are, for without them, we would not exist. We greet those who came before us, restoring their place in the familial line. We scribe their stories and their histories. We search for them in public libraries, county records, and weed-filled or well-kept cemeteries. We comb through yellowed newspapers, family archives, and lovely old letters and photo albums. We find them! And in finding themówe find ourselves.

Thank you for all you do on FindAGrave and helping us all see the past so we can find the future.

Thanks for the transfer! This was an amazing discovery for our California family and they are planning a trip to the cemetery soon as they live nearby. As far as we all knew, Henry South had moved back to Missouri to live out his days but obviously not! He and his 2nd family lived and died quite near us all this time and we never knew it until now.

Ed, thank you so much for the great photos of my great-aunt Lela's headstone. Once again, you've come to my rescue!
With much appreciation,
|Cal_Jen||Love & Light!|
Hi there Ed!
I just wanted to send a nice hello your way and let you know that I will always remember your kindness. You have a friend for life. You helped me with our grandmother's memorial and that continues to mean so much!
'Hope you're doing well these days!
Are we ready for Spring or what?!
If you find yourself anywhere near the East Coast, we'd love for you to visit our family and enjoy the part of NJ that no one knows about. It's gorgeous!
Take care of yourself.
All the best!

Ed - Thank you for creating these memorials. This is my mother-in-law's aunt/uncle. I was told that Arthur/Minnie's son, Arthur & his wife Ardath are also buried in St. Stanislaus. They passed away in Dec. 2003 & May 2003 respectively. Do you know if the church has them listed as burials in this cemetery? There was also a daughter, Monica, passed in July 2003. She may be buried with/near her parents. Thanks, Judy MN
