|Bio and Links|
If I add some information to a memorial (full dates of birth, death, locations, family links, etc) that is not listed on the headstone, it will be listed in the bio section along with where I found the information. |
If there is nothing listed, the information came from other contributors (I will list their name and ID when I can) and is NOT verified as being correct. If the edits are questioned and there is a contributor name and ID number listed in the bio, please contact the contributor who submitted the edits directly to verify where they found their information.
Remember:Just because a man and a woman share a headstone does not mean they are spouses! Several times they can be siblings or in-laws. I have seen several edit requests come through were people are ASSUMING they are married and not thoroughly researching the information to make sure they are INDEED married. Many times others are connecting siblings and in-laws as spouses when they are not. So please be sure to check that they are indeed spouses before sending the edits to link them.
NOTE: All of the edits on memorials I maintain from Eden Memorial Cemetery all came from contributor Susan (#48964989) who is updating them as she photographs the cemetery.
I have also seen that several memorials that I have created with the headstone photo and transferred to others upon request are being deleted (I keep a record of all memorials transferred) and this is NOT allowed. Instead return them to me if you don't want it. I will report any of my transferred missing memorials to Findagrave.
A note about headstone transcriptions. This is an OPTIONAL field and is not required on the memorial. If the headstone is in good shape and clearly readable, I will not add any transcriptions to the field and will decline any edits submitted. If the headstone is in poor condition, I will add any important information in the transcription section. Note: The name and dates are NOT to be in this field. The memorial is created with that information and is not to be in this section.
Also, DO NOT LEAVE obits or a persons information in the VIRTUAL FLOWER location. It will be reported as to findagrave to be removed. Send that information via the edit tab.
