RE: William Keven Armstrong
Thanks for replying. I was asking because I bought (from a thrift store) an original birth announcement for William. For the record, his middle name is spelt - Keven.
I am trying to find someone in the family who might be interested.

Thank you for placing the biography I suggested on his Memorial Page. I, also, use the new way of adding his parents to his page. I am placing Find A Grave's directions for the new way of processing suggestions from others.

How do I process memorial edits I have received?
From your 'Profile' page, select the 'Edits' tab. The tab will display the number of edits you currently have pending. If the number is more than 25, the number will be displayed in red.

'Pending Edits I need to review' will be displayed. From here, you can review the pending edits submitted to you by other members. You will see three columns. The first will be the name of the memorial which you can click on to open the memorial in a new window. The second will show you how the memorial looks currently. And the third will show you the prosed look after the edit. All edits are by default as 'Accept'. Do not click 'Process selected edits' at the bottom of the page until you are ready to approve all the edits marked 'Accept'.

Accepting the edit will update the memorial to show what is in the 'Edit' column.

Ignoring the edit will allow you to hold the memorial while you research the proposed edit.

Declining the edit will not process the update for the memorial. If you decline the edit, you must select the reason from the dropdown menu as well as leave an optional short note.

Once you have selected one of the three options for each of the edits on the page, click 'Process selected edits'. The system will begin updating the memorials with the selected updates. Wait for the page to complete before going on to the next task. [Top]

Boyer memorials
This is from FAQ's

Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?

Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1931-present) to Find A Grave. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery. [Top]

Basically it says
You can create your own memorial but should not create one for someone else who is living

RE: Nora & Ken Boyer
Ok but I surely would not want a memorial to me before I am dead and I can't really understand why anyone would want that but if that is what you want to do, you can and they can but it seriously confuses those of us putting them up as they die, since we do not see the one already there and can and do duplicate and that is seriously not helpful.

RE: Sarah Leffler Schang
I've sent you an email but forgot to mention that I really appreciate all the details you provided in her bio - it was very helpful and you went to great lengths to tell her story. Thank you.

RE: Beaverlodge Cemetery
Ron I have photos currently that are mostly south of the flag pole. I haven't done much North of the flag pole. With all the snow we have this year probably neither of us will take a lot this winter.
