Biggest Joys about Findagrave:
--Traveling to cemeteries and photographing grave markers;
--Personal satisfaction when my entries are researched, entered correctly, and nicely presented;
--Discovering burial and genealogy info on my own extended family;
--Helping others in their research; and
--Connecting with other Findagravers.
Biggest Headaches about Findagrave:
--Duplicate entries made by those who don't take time to perform a general search;
--Maiden names entered for children, unmarried women, and even men;
--Partial entry submittals (and subsequent duplicate);
--Multiple marriage names entered in surname field (please put name at time of death and explain other married names in bio or by links);
--Names entered all in capitals (shouting) or all in lower case (illiterate).
Critical Findagrave Improvements
Findagrave - We need a Dupe Checker tool so we can check:
--our own entries for duplicates,
--own entries against general database.
A million entries are being added every few weeks. It is tedious and difficult to check our own entries for duplicates once we get past about a thousand entries. The process to upload spreadsheet entries to a cemetery screens out lots of duplicates, but isn't effective for single entries. This Contributor Tool would help weed out millions of duplicates and spare us from receiving emails from others about our dupes.
Here's another suggestion. List the most populous 2-3 cities for each U.S. state at the top of the pull-down menu. Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, and Seattle (to name a few) should be at top of the list. Most of a state's population lives (and dies) in the dominant cities so make it easier for us and minimize needless scrolling.
Thanks to all out there who:
--are helpful, enthusiastic, and courteous to other volunteers,
--send me corrections, obits, links, and other information to add to my entries,
--check their own work,
--keep up with edits, corrections, and suggestions from other contributors, and
--provide newspaper or website citations for obits so others can use this info.
I typically respond within 24 hrs and consider transfers to remote family members as long as I'm not a relative or have a special connection to the individual. Thanks for all the messages I've received over the years. I like a tidy work space and remove them when requests have been completed.

I hope you see this and can leave a message or if you want send me an e-mail to email@example.com
Best regards from Sweden and thank you7 for now.
Gustaf Adolph Nording's sisters granddaughter Lillemor Brennerskiold in Ostersund, Sweden, Europe.
I wounder if you are å relative to Nording?
My name is Lillemor and i am from Sweden. Why I ask is that Gustaf Adolph Nording was my grandmothers brother (on my mothers side).
Mother is now 86 years old and 1 of 2 siblings that is left of 12 children to Gustavs little sister Signe Johanna Nording.
Signe died 1980 at the age 87.
She always wounder what it became of her brother and he wanted to take her with him to America to give her a better life than she had in sweden. She were not abel to follow him because their mother wouldn't allow it.
|Bob & Sue||I have to quit Find A Grave|
Cori, Do you want to maintain my Evergreen, Tucson Memorials? Because of my condition, I can no longer do that task well. I have had several strokes and doing this is a struggle.

|LeRoy Krsiean||RE: Happy Father's Day|
Hi Cori: We moved at the end of March, 2016 from Prescott, AZ to Montrose, Colorado. The temp here has been 90, and we have read that Prescott has been in the low 100s. Cheers, LeRoy.
|Dan Schremser||We're Cousins|
First, I apologize if I have previously contacted you. (My old records cannot be trusted). According to my Tree Program, you are my 5th cousin, through the Aichele line. It appears we were both born in Seattle, if my data is to be believed. I'd like to compare family data, if you have the time and inclination.
Drop me a line, if you get a chance. Schremserdc@yahoo.com Dan Schremser, Kingston, WA
Your biography date of date does not match headstone

|Luv2Hike||Joseph Arthur George Bilodeau Date of Death|
I came upon this record from the work you did here on find a grave. Great work! Joseph Arthur George Bilodeau is my great grandfather. The family has NOT known his death of death and location. I see the date you have here matches his cousin who has similar name. Are you able to advise the source of your info for his date of death?
His father, Onesime has a brother named GEORGE Anselme Theodule Bilodeauand. The family moved to Wisconsin. He has a son Arthur George Bilodeau whose birth date is Birth 26 MAR 1883 and date of death 4 MAY 1937 Chetek, Barron, Wisconsin, United States which is the same date you have for my great grandfather.
Thanks for any info you can share on the source.

could it be, that her husband is Christian Bohnet, born 1878, Juli,11. at Neufall/Bessarabia-died 1957 at Sept. 16. Los Angeles? His Parents are: Johann Georg BOHNET 1844-1936, Magdalena STRAUB 1844-1941; I`m knowing that his wife`s name is Louise, but i have no surname! With friendly regards from Germany Michael Bohnet
Congrats Cori for being here 11 years! It was nice to work with a pleasant uncranky person like you! I have read some contributor bios lately and am happy I do not have to communicate with them. This should be a HAPPY PLACE! Keep up the good work. Thanks,
Rosalie from Wenatchee, WA
