I got into FAG (adding and maintaining direct descendent memorials). Love the opportunity to work with others to link our loved ones together. FAG is a wonderful tool for associating family and making breakthroughs in researching those who have already gone on. I have had a great experience with each person I have been in contact with and love the mutual partnership I feel with so many that I do not know, but are bound by a common vision.
For me it goes without saying that any photos on memorials are my attempt to honor family. I am not looking for credit and wonder about those who do. It seems we should give and/or serve with no strings attached. I may be a novice and missing something but I do this for the posterity of those who have come before, the wider the circulation of this information (accurate and well documented) the better their memories are appropriately carried forward....
John Niameyer I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.
Phelps Glad to do your edits on Phelps/Young. Do you know if Bill's wife Melva 102654134 is still living? I don't like to put up pre-need stones, but at my age, when I get pix they kind of get lost in the shuffle if I don't go ahead & put them up. So did make a memorial for her but have been unable to find out if she might still be living. Any info you have would be appreciated & if she is want to immediately take it down. Thanks, Sandi
RE: Marius Pedersen Duane, the person who posted Fred Pedersen's memorial is the one who would have linked them. So you should contact them and see if they have documentation that Marius is Fred's father. When you post a memorial you can link a person to his parents and spouse...so would have to have been whoever posted Fred's memorial. Ann
Marius Pedersen Duane, sorry I just noticed that you must have linked Fred to Marius...so obviously headstones are not next to each other. Have you checked 1910 census to see if Fred with parents has the siblings listed in Marius' obit? ann
Marius Pedersen Duane, Thanks for getting in touch. I am not related simply taking photos and posting at Forest Lawn Cem. I linked Fred to Marius as the headstones are next to each other. If you have documentation of Fred's parents - are his parents in Find A Grave? I will change the link if you can give me his parents Find A Grave memorial numbers. Or if you are related to Fred - do you want to manage his memorial? I will transfer. Ann
Margaret Warren Bates McKigney Duane, Thanks for the information on Margaret, She's my Aunt married to Edward Bates, I am not sure why I had Webber I guess it was a type O I have fixed the information. Thank you! I would like to keep the memorial in my collection with her husband and family.
