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.

Hi, this is Hunter Strawderman. I tried to send you the pictures last night but the e-mail wouldn't send. It said your account was temporarily over quota. Is there another way of sending you the photos? I have text messaging and Facebook.

No rush! Just a FYI.

Thank you for all of the wonderful work that you have done and are continuing to do on Find A Grave. I wondered if you have come across any information on Polly's parents: Lewis Ritchie and Sarah Dove. My Ritchie/Ritchey goes back to Loudoun, Virginia, USA and I was searching to see if Lewis is a part of my line. Any information would be greatly appreciated, God bless you for all of your contributions, Margaret
