Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.

I found an old post that you did about Betty and Shirley, and the Whitaker Children's Home. If you want to communicate about this, you can go to my Find-A-Grave profile and send me an email to the address. Jim and Shirley were old friends.

I recently brought a few old photographs and among them was a picture of Fannie Purchase, daughter of John and Susanna B Purchase. There was also a photo of a young girl around 4 years old with a note - daughter of Sarah Henderson Moore & Capt. William Moore. Both pictures were taken in Brooklyn NY. Fannie Purchase married Horatio Campbell Moore from Main I have traced the Moore family back to Main but cannot locate Capt. William Moore. I was just wondering if you might have come across these names in your family research.

I would be happy to send you copies of the photos if you like.
