Bio and Links
Bio Photo My objective in creating (and/or managing) a memorial is simple it is to honor the person's life, no matter how short or long a period of time that individual lived. If working with genealogy has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that life is a precious gift, not to be wasted.
If I have a memorial for someone who has recently died, and you are a family member who objects to it, let me know & I will delete the memorial.
Please send requests for additions, corrections, linking, and transfers through the system FAG provides using the "Edit" tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial.
~~~As of 2013, when you submit an addition or correction, please include the LINK to the OFFICIAL source, so that I can personally confirm the information. The link must be accessible to anyone. No Exceptions. Any edit must be substantiated before the edit will be made. If there is no way to contact you in order to request your source (such as you have your messages disabled and no email address), I will be forced to decline your edit. A family tree is NOT official; the source needs to be an official document or published book. The source name will be posted to the memorial. I am unable to accept information from Ancestry.com as a substantiating source as the information on the site is not always accurate & cannot be accessed by non-members. If information cannot be substantiated, the edit request will be declined. In order to send substantiating information for your edits, use the "suggest any other correction or addition" link.~~~ Please note: I do not use birthdates or death ages from death records/certificates, as the older records are frequently wrong, in my experience.**
NOTE: From F.A.G. ADMIN concerning edits:
"You are allowed, and encouraged, to require official documentation when considering edit requests".
Unfortunately there are members who resent this desire for accuracy and send harassing, offensive messages; those messages will be forwarded immediately to F.A.G. admin.~~~
F.A.G. transfer policy: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. State your exact relationship, please. If you are seeking transfers to "have all my family together", use the virtual cemetery option.
I'm sorry, but I don't link to unknown burials.
I am happy to post information from an obituary that will enhance the memorial in the BIO section of a memorial.
The sources I post on the memorials I manage are accessible to anyone wishing to confirm them, as I use the free website www.familysearch.org for official document copies or online books for information.
Please do NOT leave biographical information and obituaries in a virtual flower. That is what the "edit" tab is for. This is against findagrave.com policy.
****Please do not post a death certificate, obituary, or anything else in the "photo section" except for person photos or photos of the gravestone.****
FOR GRAVESTONE PHOTOS THAT I HAVE TAKEN, PLEASE BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE PHOTO & THEN CLICK A SECOND TIME & THEN A THIRD. THE PHOTO WILL ENLARGE & PROVIDE A CLOSE-UP.

Thanks for all the work you have done on Find A Grave. It is impressive, and helps so many people. I am only distantly related to this person, but turned him up in researching my Jackson Line. Don't worry. I will delete my edits or you can decline them. Not a problem.

thanks for catching the typo. Her birth year was not correct, I have changed it. And thank you for sending along sources for Edward as well.
best regards.

Memorial Improvement
Hi Allison, Thank you for your improvements to my cousin's memorial. I at first did not understood why you needed documentation for his parents. Now that I see your additions, I appreciate you taking the time to validate and document. I wished you managed all my family's memorials! Lynda

Allison,

Thank you for letting me know about the duplications on Lula, James E and Margaret. I have deleted them and corrected my tree. Don't know how I missed the originials as I always try to check before making a site. So thank you again. God Bless

Thank you so much for the verification of his parents...I too require VR info because there is so much out there that is incorrect.

I also added his birth month/day/place, occupation, age at death and his death month/day/place from your excellent source.

Thank you so much for your input...look forward to hearing from you again,
Sara

documentation
Hi Allison,

There are a few of us who also request "real" documentation,. I am hopeful the trend will spread, especially when the "New and Improved" version of Find a Grave is released.
