I do not research the validity of Auto Edits sent to me. Therefore, There are errors in links that I did not add. If you have corrections, please do send an Auto Edit with the correct information. Thanks!
We are always glad to make links and add additional information.
I would prefer not having death certificate images and WWI & WWII card images on my memorials, etc. However, it has become a common practice, so I'll add them -- however, only to the memorials I own. I still believe it is up to the person who creates a memorial to make all such decisions for their own memorials and I hope all volunteers will respect each other the same way. I read the death certificates for all my memorials -- but chose not to add them. A memorial is designed to respect and remember a person. A death certificate does not do that.
DECLINES: If you received a "decline" to your Auto Edit: Look in your edit list for all declined messages and you will see the tiny bubble over the name in your edit list. FAG Admin may not be aware that the free text explanation line is not coming across in the "Declined" emails to the submitter. Most of the time, the edit sender and the memorial creator do not realize that message didn't get through to the edit sender.
"THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF FIND A GRAVE IS A GRAVES REGISTRATION WEBSITE. Find a Grave is not meant to be a genealogy site. . . . .it should be one source of many in research."
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record, and present final disposition information from around the world. Simply put, Find a Grave is registry of final resting places. Thanks to FAG volunteer Luie (#46993346)
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record. and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave: registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
Please remember that dates and information often differ on death certificates, cemetery records, obituaries, and grave stones. We try to do our best to be accurate, but these different sources generally have different dates as well as other different information.
Please do not add WWI draft card images to any of my memorials. I often type this information directly into the bio section where it belongs, not by posting the image. Thank you.
THANKS VERY MUCH to the volunteers who are photographing cemeteries and adding their photographs to F.A.G.!
Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please let me know.
"Please remember, if your memorial is in the wrong cemetery and mine is in the correct cemetery known as the actual final resting place, my memorial is not a duplicate. Please do not move your memorial to that cemetery. The date a memorial is created does not matter if you did not place a memorial in the proper cemetery."
Like many F.A.G. volunteers, I don't post on profile pages. Please include an email address when you write. Thank you for understanding.
