|Bio and Links|
Due to the recent loss of my precious Daddy and his illness prior, I have been offline and behind on processing requests. Still some days, I can't see through my heartbreak and tears. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Please grant me time to get caught up on emails and requests. |
I started my walk through genealogy in the 1990s. Well before the days of computers, I sent out letters to long distance relatives sending postage paid envelopes for them to respond....back then phone calls were long distance, unlike today. I received many responses and kept them all in a brief case for years.
Many of the extended family that I got responses from have since passed away, but I have a piece of family history in the letters that I received.
Now, my goal is to connect relatives... starting with mine and venturing out with others, with time. I find this important for our future generations.
I believe you should be thorough when you add an obit and connect the dots by connecting relatives, especially those in the same cemetery.
My newest quest with FAG is this: When I add a memorial nerak and an obit, I first edit to the next generation only but most importantly, I research to see if obits are available but not listed for predeceased relatives. If I find obits, I send them to be added by the manager of the memorial.
Any job worth doing, is worth doing right.
Please be thorough. EDITS ARE IMPORTANT. Linking people to the previous generation IS as important as adding a memorial If all you do is add a memorial without linking, or trying to link to their family, you are doing a very poor job. No one should be forgotten.
I add memorials of those I do not know, because their family may search for them one day and find them here, and be thankful someone took the time to add them and their edited obit info.
I will Transfer only through edit, not message and via find-a-grave guidelines. You must do most of the work, sending from the memorial and posting you FAG#. I will not do that. I do enough on FAG. You want it bad enough, you can do your part, but only through FAG guidelines.......public messages for transfers will simply be ignored.
Remember, Find A Grave is a public site.
Concerning transfers which is listed above but continues to be ignored:
I will Transfer only through edit, not message and via find-a-grave guidelines. You must do your share of the work; sending from the memorial and posting you FAG#. I will not do that. You can do your part, but only through FAG guidelines.......public messages for transfers will simply be ignored.
If you want information added, I will happily add the info, simply send through the memorial through edits.
pet peeve....people that add memorials and do not link their deceased family members....do a good job or don't do it at all. These are the ones that are simply out for numbers.
Last but not least from F A G rules:
Find A Grave takes no position on the appropriate timing of submitting such indexes.

Carroll Memory Gardens charges $45.00 to provided burial info and plot locations to non-family. I will be happy to take a photo if someone will provide me a plot location or general location in the cemetery.

Thank you for adding this memorial. She was my aunt. Too, I'm sorry for your loss. I'm an only child and definitely Daddy's Girl, just the thought of his loss brings tears my eyes...he's 80. I fully understand what you are coping with. May peace come soon to you.

Thank you for providing helpful obituary information. I have posted it minus the names of the living so as to follow the FG guidelines. I find this rule interesting since the paper publishes the names anyway.
Continue to send me edits. I'll continue to post them. Your information also helps me greatly to connect folks to the previous generations.
My best to you,
