The people that we have added are either in our family Cemeteries, in our family tree books or someone who has touched our family's lives very personally. We don't just go through the paper and add people to get our numbes up.|
Our family has always loved finding long lost family members. We are starting to loose our older generation with the sharp family memories fast. This is why we are working together as a team to get updates done quickly,before they are all gone.
Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy.
Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added.
This is what we follow. We go to the CEMETERY FIRST add the first three letters check to see if a memorial is added. If no memorial we add only the name, than click any other in cemetery, still if there is no duplicate we finish the memorial. If another is there we delete ours and if related ask for a transfer. We are not after to get our numbers high. We add people if there are related,good friends of the family or someone who has touched our life deeply.

Great reunion. Worked very well in the institute. Hope we hold it there again. I will work on the cemetery transfer...must figure that out.

I am certain we are related.... I went to Iowa City/Johnson County yesterday, went to a reunion and walked cemeteries. I noticed that you have most of the Meade family stones recorded in the St. Joseph's Cemetery in Iowa City recorded as being part of the Old St. Joseph's Cemetery...however, the two cemeteries are separate. Many of our Meade's are actually in Saint Joseph's cemetery, not the Old Saint Joseph's which is around the corner and accessed off Summit drive.

you are correct! I have an old thumb drive with mixed up entries-deleted them.

I deleted the memorial page for her and am glad you made a new one with her obituary. Can't believe it has been six years since I found my relatives in that cemetery.

Hi, if you are relatives of Mr. Meade I would be happy to transfer management of Meade memorials to you, my purpose is to acknowledge these memorials and hope others will fill in their interrelationships, I just ask that you identify your relationship to them. Gerry.....

Is what happened, the reason his was not there the night before, when you created yours, but his was the next day. That is changing names & dates and then placing in correct cemetery so therefore it appears as his was created first.
