DO NOT USE MY EMAIL IN THE BIO FOR A SOURCE WHEN ADDING MY EDIT INFORMATION. It adds an incredible amount of spam in my mail due to web robots. "Volunteer 46947920" or my name will suffice nicely.

This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots.
My virtual flowers now represent edits.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will Ignore and delete suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left here or in email.

RE: Isabella Bruce 50196315
Oh gosh, I'm sorry, Anne! :(

When I clicked on edit, I guess you came up. I'll have another look.

Sorry to have bothered you.

RE: William de Vere
Ah thank you Anne for the explanation, and I appreciate everything you've posted for biographies of our shared ancestors. I wish I had all this information when I spent a month living in London, 4 years ago!

RE: Densmore et al
No, thank you, I really don't want them back. Initially if you sent an edit request to Mike he would transfer everyone with that surname to you. After sending several dates to him based on tombstone pics he asked if I wanted all he entered. I declined at first but changed my mind thinking I would at least honor the edit requests.

RE: Densmore transfers
My bad - sorry. Send em back if you would. Thought you were a descendant, someone will be in the future so I'll hang on to them at this end.

Thx again, and sorry for the oops

Thank you for your response to my edit. I have looked at the rules and cant find where unknown as a burial is not allowed. In fact it is an option that is used often on the burial menu. I use reliable published sources to link known people with their parents and children to complete family linkages and sometimes contributors identify the appropriate sites to make the picture whole. I can direct the linkage in the biography from John's memorial to the memorial for his son, so don't worry if you don't feel you can.

From Fresno take Highway 41 North towards Coarsegold. Turn left onto Road 416. Turn left onto Road 415/Raymond Road. Continue straight onto Road 600/Raymond Road. Turn right onto Road 613. Road 613 will become Ben Hur Road at county line (changes from Madera County to Mariposa County). Right after the Mariposa County sign, the cemetery will be located on the right side. There is a gate that is locked but you can slide through it or under it, walk up the driveway and it will be on your right up the hill. It is not visible from the gate but at about 2 o'clock on the right at the crest of the hill. Address: 1051-1061 Ben Hur Road. The cemetery gate is not locked, just has a chain that is easily opened.
