I have been involved in Genealogy for about 30 years. Became a Professional Genealogist in about 2008. I have an Associate of Science Degree in Science that was awarded on 16 Jun 1982. I am presently working on my Certification Portfolio for my CG. Found Find-A-Grave in October 2009, and joined. I feel that it is a good way to keep the memory, of those who have passed away, alive. Will transfer a relative to you, unless it is my relative also.|
To all of my fellow gravers out there, if I submit an edit, I have already verified the information and can supply documentation if needed.
Quoting another FAG contributor and agreeing."I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them".I would like to thank Contributor Bernice for this thought, and also say that I agree with her and the original poster.
My sister Susan Conner passed away on Dec. 27, 2015. Her Memorial #156405201. Please stop by and leave a flower.

|CNoon||RE: In Re Barrett @ Greendale Chapel|
Their mother gave me their names and dates, so that part I can verify. I've always assumed that was their grave, but have no written documentation. I'll leave it to your judgement.

I could not agree more emphatically! When my own mother died, I came to publish a memorial to her, only to find one of the "obit trolls", as I call the hordes of armchair gravers who scarf names from newspapers had swiped her name to add to his stack! He did transfer her memorial to me AFTER I supplied him with the verification info he demanded!
Please, GRAVESNATCHERS! Give a family a few months to prepare a memorial instead if competing for numbers! There is no prize, you know! If this is all you can feel accomplished at, for heaven's sake (and ours!) learn a trade or take up another hobby!

|Bob Davis||RE: In Re Lonnie Twitchell|
Your Welcome! I was wondering if you have had any information pertaining to Lonnie's parents? Lonnie's mother, Oberia Ann Hadley is an ancestor of my Grandmother. I have some information pertaining to the brothers and sisters of Lonnie that I would be glad to send to you. I am looking for old family photos and other information about Oberia's family. Maybe we can help each other.
You can contact me directly at email@example.com. Thanks.

Thank you for accepting the edit for the memorial of Alice Blevins #107679758
I visited your sister's memorial and left a belated birthday token.
I would be pleased if you would go to my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.
|Colleen Sanders Broyles||RE: Laura Farris #164212328|
you are very welcome!
|Keith Meadows||Bessie Brummett|
Sorry about the duplicate; however, in my defense Brummett wasn't listed in her name on that memorial and Brummett is the name on the headstone.....
I linked Wash to your memorial - you might want to include Brummett in the name and feel free to copy the headstone picture to Bessie's memorial if you wish!!
Have a Blessed day!

Thank you for the comments concerning the contributors to Find-a-Grave.com who seem to be in a "game" to increase their numbers. It shows in the quality of work when genealogists and "budding" family historians, such as myself, suddenly find themselves correcting so many errors. Remember the family. Every memorial site should be in honor and memory of the person's life. We do appreciate your work and your attitude, Anthony!

|Tanya Sturdivant||CR Thompson|
How do I get CR Thompson and Laura Thompson linked to my grandfather. His name is Fred McKinley Thompson and he is CR and Laura's son. They also had another son and daughter as well.
|Michael Hague||RE: Ralph Erskine Roberts # 121935781|
Anthony, you can submit a Cemetery Correction on the Find A Grave Community Forums to add map & GPS information.
