Bio and Links
Bio Photo This isn't mine but I saw how true it was within a short time of being on Find A Grave.
I copied this to share from another member's site: I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned. With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them

Early Ferguson
I posted a new photo of Earl's stone and submitted the dates to be added. I need to go double check the birth year again. The birth year is either 1805 or 1905. Do you know if he was 2 or 102 when he died? I will go back and check again to make sure.

Setter in Willow Valley
I just went out to Willow Valley and took pictures of all the grave markers. Have a problem I'd like to run past you if you will send me an email.

After you send the email, please delete this message so my address isn't available for trolling spammers. Thanks.

Clemmet Bergh parents
It appears that I can only add family member names if they currently exist in the Find-a-Grave database. When I go to edit relatives, the application will only allow a Find-a-Grave number. Clemment's parents are not in this database.

Beth Winchester
Jane, Oakland, Stockton, MN
You posted a photo request for someone named Jane, no last name, for the Oakland Cemetery, Stockton, Winona County, Minnesota.
Would you happen to know any thing about this woman? Last name, dates? Something I can tie her to in order to find her and take a picture?
I am willing to get the picture, I just need more information!

I hope you enjoy all of the pictures.

RE: Inactive Contributors
Regarding all those bounced emails. It is a known issue that not all emails are going through, so that may be why so many came back to you. If they are SAC's sent as "other", it would be best to contain your additions/corrections to the new edit system (ie: birth, death, places, links to family) until the problem is resolved. That way, even if a contributor is not processing them, Find A Grave administration will. They do not do the "other" SAC. So for the time being, no bio's, no obit's, no census information etc.

As to being inactive - sometimes it is noted, sometimes not. Sometimes you can tell by the messages on the person's page. Regardless, most information can still get added to the memorial. If it is a known inactive, your SAC's are handled promptly.

Last, about the person we were discussing at Riverside, I used to correspond with her on a personal level, and then she "fell off the face of the earth". Don't know what happened. Life gets busy and our hobbies change, and memorials get left behind half finished. She had started bulk transferring to me for management (until a family member comes along) and then poof - one day she was gone. So I do what I can to update the memorials as I post a photo on them.

Take Care!

Re: Agnes Pittman
Edit cancelled, have at it! I for one am glad they changed the edit system. Things get done now, regardless of being inactive (or for whatever reason.)
Have a great day!
