Corey Memorials
Dear Steve,
I am now managing the Corey memorials in the Pennellville Cemetery. Please send me individual SAC's of those memorials you would like to see transferred to you. Thank You.

RE: Corey
Thanks for your kind words, but I didn't re-post the photos. They had always been there. The other contributor had deliberately created duplicates and then taken my original photos and posted them on her newly created dupes. I have meanwhile requested from the site's administrators to get all those Coreys transferred from that inactive contributor's account. Would you like me to forward those to you then?

RE: headstone photos
Hi,
I don't see that link on my end. The headstone photos are gone, because I asked Diane to delete those. She had taken them from the original memorials, the ones she duplicated. I took those photos originally. She used them without asking. We are making progress, thank you.

Duplicate memorials
Mr. Watrous.

If you check the Pennellville cemetery you will see that most of those COREY family memorials are duplicates. Those are not allowed on Find A Grave. The problem with dupes is, e.g., when I create a memorial for a child and know the parents and would like to link to them, but there are two memorials for a mother and two for the father...to which one am I supposed to link to? Also it brings up the numbers of interment in a cemetery incorrectly. I believe you got dragged into this mess, because you received those memorials by a contributor, who knowingly duped them. Unfortunately as recipient you cannot delete those.
Please go to each memorial and click on the delete bottom (top right) scroll down on the menu and state the reason for deletion (duplicate), add the number of the original memorial. If that is too much you can try and return the memorials to the original creator and have her delete them.

Thanks

Duplicate Memorials and stolen photos
Mr. Watrous.

It appears that you are managing memorials that were placed as dupes years after the original postings. To top things off, those duplicate memorials contain photos that were stolen from the original memorials. Why do I know? - I took those photos originally 5 years earlier. Please refer to the FaQs of this website regarding duplicate memorials. I expect the duplicates to be deleted, as well as the stolen photos to be taken down.

Sincerely,
Frank K.
