Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia,Rockingham Va,Hardy WV and surrounding area.

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25 feb 2015.
(When they reloaded it had there old dates like 2007 ETC...Making the other FAG member look like they purposely created doubles)
F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.

If anyone gets Find A Grave to transfer memorials cared for by ProjectMgr Just a heads up I dont delete any connected to ProjectMgr.I worked hard to replace all the memorials that had been deleted.Find A Grave choice to re-upload the Old Deleted memorials And we work free on this site.So if anyone wants our memorials Have Find A Grave Merge them or if you dont have a problem merging then more power to you.

I do want to thank anyone that has helped with my duplicants created after the major upload of old memorials formerly deleted.I really appreciate the help

Life is real. Life is earnest!
And the grave is not it's goal.
Dust thou art to dust returnest
Was not spoken of the Soul.

duplicate memorials ~
Hello G. I've noticed your talk in several places. Are you aware that Ancestry-Findagrave now has a de-duping program (software that they can run) that will automatically merge all duplicate memorials providing they are in the same cemetery and with matching data. All you have to do is give them a link to the cemetery, and ask them to merge duplications there, in the Cemetery Correction Forum. I have no dog in that fight, just though this might help you.
