Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.

Rest in God
I was looking at some photo requests and came across yours.

I think you might like this site and find some additional family connections and headstone photographs.

Hi Annette,
Jacob and Catharine are my 3rd great grandparents and I was wondering about whether you have a copy of the Baer Newsletter. Thank you for your information and happy hunting.

Landis family in Bucks Co.
Annette, my gt-gt grandmother was Hannah Landis, dau of Jacob and Sarah (Clemens) Landis. As I try to trace Landis line back, it becomes difficult!!! Wondering if you have any info to link Jacob Sr. to Rudolph Landis and Sarah Overholt(zer). An Ancestry hint suggested such. If you'd like to know about Hannah Landis, she married John William Mouser and became an early pioneer in mid-Michigan, barely getting settled before her husband left for war, leaving her with three young children in the wilderness!!

James Pool
Good Day to you Annette! I work at Oak Hill Cemetery. I have looked in all the information that I have. James does not have a stone, but I wanted to mention that Margaret Pool is buried here next to him. She passed in 1956. She also has no headstone. She is not mentioned in your request was not sure if you know about her. Please let me know if I can help in anyway. I know that you posted this so long ago. Please understand I am trying my best to help when I can. Smiles to you and yours. Sincerely Kelly

Hello - I received your request for transfer on Blanche and Luella Oglevee. Blanche was transferred without incident. I hit the wrong number on Luella though so it was transferred to someone else. So sorry!! Finger and brain failure. Kimberly

I'm sorry but I am not transferring the hospital memorials at this point. If you have additional information or links I'd be happy to update the memorial with them. Thanks.

RE: Abigail Piggot 75217569
Thank you, Annette. I uploaded interment records to Whitewater Cemetery not realizing the records were actually from the Whitewater FRIENDS Cemetery. The records failed to have FRIENDS on the record. I have to correct many profiles now, as most of the folks were disinterred and reburied elsewhere. I will delete my profile of Abigail. It might be useful information to post on Abigail's other profile that she was originally buried in Whitewater Friends Cemetery.

Hello, I saw the List of children that you posted to Ebenezer's Find A Grave. Some of the dates on the left are different from the dates on the right. Could you explain this document alittle more. Thank you for posting this.
Added by Annette Gann on May 04, 2014 9:24 AM

My understanding is the first date is each child's birth date and the second date is their baptism.
