|Bio and Links|
❶ DUPLICATE MEMORIALS
★ Before creating a memorial, I do my "homework" by performing a one-time, SITE-WIDE SEARCH for a prior listing.
★ Duplicates can occur due to first-created entries being missed or ignored intentionally!
★ I do NOT have the selfish attitude of "Yay, I win, you lose, I found the grave first". I send correct disposition information for an existing entry to the memorial manager. In the spirit of sharing, that is the POLITE and PROPER thing to do!
❷ TRANSFER REQUESTS
(As of Sunday, July 17, 2011)
★ Out-of-Guidelines requests are no longer being honored or acknowledged, due to a really bad experience with another "contributor".
❸ HONORING VETERANS
★ I have a soft spot in my heart for veterans, and believe that they deserve our thanks and appreciation.
★ My beloved late father ❤ was a World War II overseas combat vet, and I couldn't be more proud of him!
❹ MY FIND A GRAVE PHILOSOPHIES
★ The individuals memorialized on Find A Grave meant something to somebody, and I do not take that lightly!
★ All "Virtual Flowers" that I put on memorials are from the heart.
★ I DO MIND MY OWN BUSINESS ... CAN YOU SAY THE SAME ABOUT YOURSELF?
★ I was raised with good manners, and I require good manners in any Find A Grave correspondence sent to me, public or private!

★ If your Find A Grave messages even have a HINT of being:
✔Abusive ✔Demanding ✔Disrespectful ✔Falsely Accusatory ✔Harassing ✔Hateful ✔Ill-mannered ✔Immature ✔Inappropriate ✔Nasty ✔Offensive ✔Pushy ✔Rude ✔Sanctimonious ✔Slanderous
✔Smart-mouthed ✔Threatening, etc
YOU WILL BE IGNORED, AND REPORTED, JUST AS TWO CERTAIN "CONTRIBUTORS" WERE! 😃
❺ NAMING A MEMORIAL
★ If the deceased never married; the surname goes in the LAST NAME field. The MAIDEN NAME field is only for married persons who took their spouse's LAST NAME.
❻ SUGGEST A CORRECTION / EDIT REQUESTS
★ Please keep Bio information out of "Leave A Public Message", "Photo Captions", and "Virtual Flowers".
★ I do check my edit requests frequently; therefore ONE Edit Request notice is sufficient. Please DO NOT send me additional messages on how or when to accept edits!
★ Please DO NOT send me Edit Requests to change military titles, unless it is a totally different title from what is already in place!
★ I am getting way too many SACs from Find A Grave "Visitors"! I only accept SACs from logged-in members.
★ ALWAYS state your source(s) when sending me additional information!
❼ VIRTUAL CEMETERIES
★ You may want to consider putting memorials in "Virtual Cemeteries", as they are great ways to keep folks "together".

|Joan Pacitti||Additions on my memorials|
That would be fine if you see any of my memorials that need additions or corrections.
I really no longer add memorial unless it's for my family.
Unfortunately, I will be adding one. I have to use the new form because this relative is not being buried. She has been cremated.
Take care Kathy.
Kathy: I would like to do that, but it's been so long since I've added anyone, I don't remember how to do that. Any advice would be helpful.
|Joan Pacitti||Michael Acvedo's memorial|
Thank you for the information you provided on Mr. Acevedo. I have added that.
