Find A Grave changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it and possibly change correct info.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

My great grandfather was Casper Gabriel. I saw where you added a rose to his memorial.

I was curious as to whether you might have the family crest or coat of arms for the Gabriel family from Kleinliebental, Liebental, Odessa, South Russia.

Thank you,

Randy & Marilyn Gabriel

Would like to use your photo for Greenhill cemetery in Laramie WY on my tree. Herman W Hannah is buried there.

RE: John & Margaret Martin
So glad that I can help! And I am sorry about the mud on that one corner - we have had so much rain down here in Texas the past couple of weeks that the ground is really soggy.

I was in Laramie yesterday and got the photograph.
Best wishes.

Hi Elena,

Next time you are in Greenhill, I wonder if you might look for this grave and take a photograph?

The coordinates of the burial plot-- Row O Lot 56 Space 5 -- on this Find A Grave registry carry some mystery. I can't pull her up as "Bergstrom" on the Greenhill PDF. My effort to search for her under maiden name has been in vain.

If there is a marker, I hope it's in her maiden name. That is what she wanted.

I have gone well beyond the "obituary" to learn more and am in the process of writing a story.

So much obliged.

This Mack Hoover was my uncle. I remember going fr no IN to his funeral but I rem it as earlier than 1967. Do you know a way to prove if the date is correct?

Sorry about that. It has been removed. Must have been one of my bad days. Thanks for catching it.
