Bio and Links
Bio Photo AUGUST 2016---I'VE BEEN OFF LINE FOR THIS MONTH DUE TO A COMPUTER CRASH! Trying to get everything functional again but am running way behind so please be patient with me in answering emails and doing edits, etc, etc. THANKS!

I am working on SAC's but I can only do a few at a time. P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E is accepted!

Requests for transfers need ONLY come in ONCE in 30 days!

Editing and Corrections---Please limit the use of this option to no more than 20 email requests per contributor per week. Most of our contributors are unable to make updates on the same day a request is sent in.
For the people who don't understand and make derogatory remarks about contributors who manage more memorials than they added: Some contributors pass on their memorials to other contributors when something happens and I manage many more than I have posted because of that and I am willing to transfer.
When requesting a transfer please state how you are kin to the person you want transferred and don't just put 'family' or 'relative'. I do out-of-guideline transfers but I would like to know how you are related to that person? And don't be afraid to "ASK" for a transfer. I will let you know if it's one I want to keep. Thanks!
Since around 2012-13 I have stopped adding living people from obits into the bio section. Yes, I know I still have some that have them listed.

With all the repeated requests to add living people, here is what Find A Grave says about it.

"""Directly from Find A Grave, we ask that you do not add living individuals to memorials. If you get a SAC asking you to do so, we ask that you ignore it; if an instance arises in which you have a member sending you repeated requests asking you to add the names of living individuals to memorial, please let us know.""".

This directly from FAG administration:

Transcribing means whatever is inscribed directly onto the headstone OTHER than the name and dates. Such as, "Rest In Peace," or, "He Was a Kind Man". Never put biographical information or anything that is not inscribed on the headstone itself.
If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun. -Katherine Hepburn
