Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: Melrose Abbey Memorial Park, Anaheim, Orange County, California
Your message comes off rather hostile. Is there some reason I shouldn't have his memorial? I will certainly transfer it to you if you would like to manage it.

Maria Keely
I came across your memorial for Maria Keely (151393572) You have a note saying DC 38037. Could you please tell me what that means.

Mary and Adam Probst
Is there a stone for Mary and Adam Probst in St. Mary's cemetery? I have photos and information about Anna Probst/Miller, Michael and Elizabeth Probst. Anna is my great grandmother. Their other daughter married an Eiberger.

Thank you for contributing so much to Findagrave. I really do appreciate all your work. Perhaps you can help me with this lady's death date. On the page the death date first mentioned says 1911, the date of the Union Star article says 1911, but the obituary says 1914. For her to be 84 years old she would have had to have died in 1914, but I am not really sure which is right?
