Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.
Melaney Shaum---------------------------

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

RE: Kings Point Cemetery Photo
Thank you so very much for the kind words, Tom. I love sunsets, particularly, and you're correct to the fact that I was in the right place at the right time. God, our creator, has provided a beautiful place for us to live in. All of creation is absolutely beautiful and I love to capture awesome scenes to remind me of who He is.

Please do not send me mass corrections again.
I will report you to find a grave if this happens again.

Thanks for letting me know about that duplicat photo. I'm not sure why I put that on there with the other one there??? Oh well. BTW, I can't find that "X". There used to be one, but I think they've taken that option off.
Take care & thanks for all the hard work you do for Find A Grave!

RE: Duplicate Memorials :>)
I know I must have sent you an edit suggestion but I have sent several lately and can't tell by your answer which one it must have been. Maybe you can tell me.

RE: Teall - Guild
Awesome Tom! i just happened to run across the connection while researching the half dozen or so remaining people that i didn't find a marker for. other than them, every memorial page now has a photo ("98%")! i've emailed the owners of all the 'unfound' marker people for suggestions.

Grave Collecting
tom, you are the biggest offender there is when it come to being a collector . and for a person who builds duplicate sites for ever time some is remarried when you know a site is already made for that person ,and refusing to transfer sites to family members when you have no connection to the but to collect. Im know the person that feel this was as I have heard about you from several others on Find A Grave.

Henry and Hattie Fitzpatrick
When you were photographing Henry and Hattie Fitzpatrick, did you happen to run across the tombstone for their sons Benjamin and Glen Fitzpatrick both deceased in 1918? Benjamin was my great grandfather. Thank you for your time!
