A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits 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 #s.

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

Euvalene Anderson Swanstrom
Hello Nick,
You are maintaining the memorial for Euvalene. I am working on the family story for the Olsen's of Nuckolls County, Nebraska. Euvalene's Grandmother, Oline, was an Olsen prior to her marriage to Jens Wagensen. Euvalene's mother, Lillie, and her uncles, Harry and Fred, are a part of our family story - as are their children. How are you related to Euvalene - obviously through the Swanstrom side. I would love to hear about Euvalene's family. Is Sandra Hopkins your cousin?

Would you please add Lilly Wagensen Anderson(#43681800) and Ernest Anderson (#43409956) - Euvalene's parents - to her memorial?

Thank you!
Jean Jorgensen
