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 it can be confirmed. 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 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 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 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.****

I believe this child was born to Abraham Paulus Buwalda and Aaltje Jans Havenga on 12 March 1830 in Ee, Friesland, Netherlands and died the following day, 13 March 1830 in Ee. All the information I can come up with states that the family did not come to the USA until 1847, 17 years after this child passed away. If you have other info I would appreciate learning about it.
Thank you,
Shannon Agee

Good catch. I was in a hurry and misread the record. It's been re-submitted.

RE: Woodwards
You're welcome. I've never been to Torringford cemetery before. It is in a very beautiful setting with an old farm in front. Thanks again for all you do for Find-A-Grave.

Thanks so much for honoring my brother by leaving a flower. God Bless you. By the way, I have a lot of Pierce's in my family. My Grandmother Bulah Pierce Stephens ua buried at Bethel Cemetery in Logansport, La . All her folks came from East Texas around Mt Enterprise area. Probably originally from South carolina area.
