|Bio and Links|
I am 21 years old and I have been interested in my family history for quite sometime now. I am especially interested in the Farmer, Porter, Danley, Pitt, Hulsey and Woodard familes in Robertson County, TN and the Reid and Eden families which were more concentrated in Macon County, TN. I will be glad to help anyone in any way I can. I love to go to cemeteries and take photos. It's not work for me, but a hobby so feel free to ask me to go find a grave for you. Also, if anyone knows anything on the listed families above in the listed locations above, please let me know!|
I am currently working on cemeteries in Houston County, TN ever since I found and bought a great big cemetery book at a Goodwill in Clarksville. If you have any questions concerning someone buried in Houston County, I may be able to help you.
Mangement transfer should happen for three reasons and three reasons only:
1. Deceased is a direct realtive within four generations (children, grand-children, great-gradnchildren, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, spouse).
2. If the deceased was family (aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles) or if the deceased was very much LIKE family.
3. If extensive information is needed to the memorial.
However, the contributor only HAS TO transfer the memorial if the deaceased is a direct relative within four generations. So be nice and the contributor might just transfer the memorial regardless.
Also, just for those who do not know, if you create a memorial and click on the "Create Memorial" button more than once, it will duplicate the memorial however many times you click. I learned this the hard way when I saw that I had created five memorials for the same person.
If you have a picture of a tombstone that I already took a picture of, and your picture is clearer and more legible, please let me know and I will delete my pic ASAP. Also, feel free to copy any pictures that I took and use them for your own needs.
If a contributor will not respond to your suggestions or will not transfer management, please do not create another memorial for the person that the inactive member has created. Rather, contact FAG at email@example.com with memorial number and contributor number and they will take care of it in due time. This way, everyone will be happy :)
I really, really, REALLY can't stand when people create memorials from obituaries and from funeral websites and they don't include any information presented in their bio or obituary. This dosen't honor the deceased at all. It just gives you a larger number on in your "memorials created."
I have currently had the displeasure of dealing with a contributor who is far too serious about this website. Do not get me wrong, creating accurate memorials for the deceased is a very serious matter. What bugs me are the contributors who are overly UPTIGHT and PICKY about everything here on FindAGrave and on their profile bio has a list a mile long of rules (a lot of times not even in compliance with FindAGrave's rules) in which they have created. Yes, there are certain rules which should be followed on this website in general but sometimes contributors display senseless behavior over stupid little things. Let me clarify.
First off, just because a person does not use the edit tab on the memorial to suggest changes doesn't mean you have the right to ignore the request. If you do, you dishonor the person for whom you have created the memorial by not posting legitimate information about their lives on their page all because somebody didn't follow "the rules" and use the edit tab. If you receive information about a memorial you manage over anything but the edit tab (in an e-mail or over the message board for example) please don't ignore it. Simply look up the name in your records and add the information. And if you don't like the person sending information that way, please kindly ask them to use the edit tab next time so that you don't have to look the person up. I mean really, how much effort does it take to look up a person in your records.
Secondly, NEVER give a single contributor a limit to how many requests they can make per day. You should be glad to receive such a bulk of information for the sake of accuracy on your memorials! Per FindAGrave rules you have 30 days to complete requests. There is a reason they allow contributors a month to fulfill requests. If you can't handle receiving several requests on memorials you created, then you do not need to bear the responsibility on managing memorials. AS A CONTRIBUTOR, IT IS YOUR DUTY AND OBLIGATION TO FULFILL REQUESTS WHEN INFORMATION IS ACCURATE AND LEGITIMATE PERIOD. On that note, I would like to give a shout out to LesaK who has happily made additions and corrections to many of her memorials without complaint that I have requested information to be added or changed. Thank you Lesa!
Also, don't be the "documented information" tyrant. There is nothing wrong with asking someone where they received their information (in fact, I encourage it) but if someone is sending you additional information, obviously they learned it from somewhere. Even learning information from older members of the family is legitimate. In fact, it is often more dependable than most documented things.
One more thing, information that is on the gravestone isn't always correct information. Sometimes the funeral home makes a mistakes and other times the informant of the death certificate is wrong. If the person who requests change has legitimate proof that what is on the gravestone is not correct, then please change it.
Whether you have 10 memorials or 10,000 memorials does not matter. Please remember the main reason why we create memorials. We create memorials so the people who have gone on before us will not be forgotten. This is why we spend hours searching through cemeteries or cemetery books adding memorials for people we have never heard of. While our family is important to us, no one person is more important than the other. All deceased deserve memorials.

|Linda||RE: Fannie Dowdy Smith|
Hi Joseph, I am sorry I did not get your email. I wonder why not; I guess it could have gone to my spam folder on the actual att website. Oh well. I linked Fannie Hendricks Dowdy Smith with her mother as you asked. Fannie was my husband's grandmother. Sarah Geneva Hendricks was his great grandmother. Would it be possible for you to transfer her memorial to me? Of course if you are a relative I understand if you would rather not. Thank you for making Sarah's memorial.

|Family Finder||Don Bonner|
I was wondering if you had a chance to look at Don Bonner's memorial since Jerry added the obit. It looks like services and burial for Don took place in Sheridan, Arkansas.
I asked Greenwood for his plot location just in case he was actually there, but they were unable to locate him in their files. I had them search "Don Bishop" (as listed on his findagrave memorial) and "Bishop D." (as printed in his obituary).
I'm going to close out the photo request for now. If it turns out that Don is in San Diego somewhere, let me know and I'll help track him down! Unfortunately, I know nothing about Arkansas so I'm of no use there.
