Grant Center cemetery edits
Hi Shawn,

I'm working from the Apr 1975 Hawkeye Journal & will be sending some edits your way. 3 Ladies walked the cem. in Sep 1974 and no doubt many memorials were much more readable then, than now. Just so you know I'm not pulling these edits out of thin air!! ;)

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy
==========================

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it and remove correct info.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Judy Killian
Christine Berg Thompson
I just ran across an obituary for a distant relative, Christina Berg Thompson. She died on 04-25-1962, The obit is in the Mason City Globe on 04-26-1962. It says she was 94.
The grave marker you show and the date you have listed is she died in 1903 and the age doesn't match either. Not sure what happen there.

Markham and Florence Young
Dear shawn, I have sent edits to link family members to Markham & Florence Young. I want you to know that I do research before sending edits. I check census, marriage and death records. I was especially glad I could find the parents of Florence, as she was born in Nebraska and then they moved to S. Dakota. Her sister is also married to his brother. Anyway, thanks so much for all you do on Find A Grave and for the attention to the edits. Lily

LETTOW - Jeffrey R. Phillips
Hi Shawn. Thank you for your amazing contributions to Find a Grave. I can't express how much your work has helped in my research.

I am trying to link my Illinois LETTO family to Jeffrey R. Phillips Iowa LETTOW family. My family came to America as LETTOW and dropped the ending W.

Is there any way you can make contact with Jeffrey to see if we can connect our families? I wonder if there is anyone in the LETTOW line that has taken a DNA test to see if we have a link.

Again, thank you for your contributions and am looking forward to a possible connection.

Laura Skender (nee Haduch)

Looking for DNA testers
Hello, I'm trying to find descendants of Lewis B Smith:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=18795843

I believe he was living in Jackson County, Indiana in 1840 and suspect he may have been a close relative to my Smiths. I have GEDmatch, F362100, and yDNA at SmithsWorldWide.org http://www.smithsworldwide.org/smtestcompareg.asp?grouping=GRP-R-M269-9

Thanks,

Chris Smith
