Thank you for your note.

Thank you again.

RE: Leslie
Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who has recently passed or who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. A member has thirty days to update the memorial to the correct burial location on recent deaths. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has an Other Burial designation (Cremation, Body Lost, burial at Sea, Donation, Non-Cemetery, or Unknown), and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Other Designation may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.

RE: Leslie
There are other sites available for the true memorializing of a person; this site has to do with final disposition. Their site, their rules and we follow them if we are going to contribute here. In this case, that obit was already rejected by administration. We don't always know what's going on behind the scenes on some of these entries.

Since the site allows and encourages what they call "rich content", I have accumulated well over a thousand obituaries (so far) which I plan to use to extract information for bios on my entries, and for those of other contributors who will accept my submissions. It's enough to keep me busy for the rest of my life, but even without them, they still record that final disposition asked for by the site.

Thanks, Karyn

RE: Leslie
No, I can tell you I saw the original when it was first posted and the obituary WAS on it word for word...someone apparently reported it and that obituary was promptly REPLACED with what you see there now. Doesn't matter about more complete information. If you want to go there, another contributor duplicated the original (dated Feb 7) on Feb 11, and that entry also had the full obituary on it too. Right now there's FOUR entries for the same person, and because of the notoriety of the deceased and this obituary, you can be assured the extra entries (all three with the full obit) will be deleted or merged.

The purpose of Find A Grave is to record the final disposition of the deceased. Everything else is gravy. The FAQ's (the rules) are clear about this.

Need to merge
Audrey already had a Memorial #58188404. It needs to merge with the new one.

Goodman photos
Great photos George, may I have copies to put in my family database? My genealogy research database is not on the internet, it is private, so that nothing in it gets duplicated over and over by ancestry dot com
