Hey Punky, heads-up. If you request I add information to a memorial and/or a transfer and find that I DID NOT DO IT, it is most likely because you didn't say please or thank you. My motto is: If it isn't important enough to say please and thank you, then it isn't very important! |
Also FAG 101 for Dummies is a must read for all newbies to this site. "EDIT BUTTON" is the best thing since sliced bread! Use it as it can be found in upper right hand corner of each memorial. It makes it easier for you to communicate with others and make your requests known. Don't send a message as it is sooo old and out of fashion. Be a hipster and use da edit button! (Those that fail to do this simple request will be slapped mercilessly with a wet noodle.)
On a serious note, I have met some really nice people on Findagrave.com. Also, some real knuckle-heads on rare occasions. It bugs me that people do not provide "links" when asking for help. It's like they think I personally know all my entries. (Like Hildgegard Boomerang was born Pisgah, Iowa.) Do you realize how many Hildegard Boomerangs I have listed? Countless.
Too often I go out on my safari looking for a burial because someone has requested a volunteer to do this errand for them. I find the grave, take photos, and promptly download them. Then I wait and wait and wait for a simple response that says THANK YOU. When no acknowlegement happens, I feel used. When my email lights up and someone says THANK YOU I feel good. Too bad the knuckle-heads tend to ruin the day and discourage further safari' expeditions.
Do you realize that some people go onto Findagrave simply to find duplicates? Yes, I am afraid so. Then they triumphantly announce that YOU MADE A DUPLICATE! Such passion in their telling you of your bad deed. I generally slink back to the duplicate and remove it, burn it, and ask for forgiveness.
It is rare when you find a triplicate. For those searching for duplicates, this is a joyous moment. Being able to pounce on someone and announce that you are a TRIPLICATE provider gives a sense of awe to the proud detector and protector of FAG.
Hopefully you are a nice person, or a born again knuckle-head, and enjoy the wonders of Findagrave.com. Good hunting and grave stomping I wish to you.

Hi: If you are curious as to what I have done, check out Johan Johnson #64319253.
This is where it all begins. I have linked all his children that were born in America and husbands/wives of the next generation.
It is quite astounding how this family grew during such difficult times.
Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave! I am sorry to keep bugging you about them.....
|Arlene Jones-Swenson||RE: Johnson Family|
Hi: Thank you for your concern. I am linking my husband's family together. The families came to Waseca/Steele County from Norway and Sweden. A family member gave me a copy of the genealogy book that was done on this family.
If you prefer, I can give you the information for you to enter.
It is unusual for so many of these families to been buried in the same cemetery.
Does this help?
I am related to Forgaards from Wisconsin, and Illinois, wonder if your people are connected. Any help would be appreciated??
Blessings, Duane Warren 47876044

THANKS!!! I love your message & please forgive it if I failure to be polite. I love the searching & find it very challenging. Family tree & markers don't always have the same spelling & dates. I'm planning a road trip to your area to visit the cemeteries. I can't find some graves but think they must be in unmarked graves. Your help is greatly appreciated. I love it when Find A Grave shows the whole family linked together. Thanks is advance for help are in future request I may need to contact you..
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

You are so very welcome. It was our pleasure to be able to help. I really enjoy visiting this cemetery in the spring and fall. It is an old, beautiful cemetery with lots of wonderful plants and trees. I love the smells in this cemetery.
The Hensel family name brings back memories for us, as we were born and raised in the Harrisburg area where there was a Hensel's warehouse. One of our friends was an employee there for a number of years. As a boy, Pete used to play football on the lawn in front of the building. (maybe I shouldn't tell you that since they really made a mess of it) Anyway... thank you for reviving some old memories. Have a great weekend.
Brenda & Pete

Thanks Larry! Love your profile icon; reminds me of a hearse my brother drove around with a sign in the back window that said "Pick a designated driver now, or pick one later."
