One thing I despise - FAG contributors who watch the obituaries and race to get a memorial published. My father died 15 days ago, on the 2nd of April 2017, and before he was cold someone had added a page for him. That person was kind enough to transfer it to me without my having to ask. Today, however, I got an email from someone else who was going to add a page for my father only to see there was already one there. She then went to instruct me as to why I needed to get his photo and obituary posted ASAP.
That behavior is nauseating and not one bit better than an ambulance chasing lawyer.
Have a little decency, people - if you are living to rack up memorials posted, you need to get a life. And stop pestering people who are still in mourning.

The only way I know how to edit a token, is to delete it and start fresh.

You are very welcome, Marilyn. Thank you for the sponsorship. :)
Glad you have found some of your family on here. I know what you mean about wanting to share with others who are no longer with us.

RE: Memorial 149400622
I find no record in my Find a Grave file with Helen Milne so do what you want. I would like to see a copy of what has my name attached.

RE: Doan Family
Both. Periodically I've gone through the Doane Family Association books and added people; often there are cemeteries listed but sometimes not...and I DO intend to keep researching them, but sometimes life intervenes, and sometimes I go off on another tangent...

Thanks for the note-- I've found some wonderfully helpful and co-operative people at this site, and also the rudest, most demanding and mean-spirited, thankfully those are few and far between. I'm always distressed when a contributor leaves because of the "negativity", but there have been times I do understand. The fact that someone creates a memorial SHOULD indicate they are "making a donation" to future generations, so it is a surprise when that person turns out to be so rude. It used to be when you made a transfer the person often deleted the memorial and created a new one. The admins changed it so you can no longer delete a memorial transferred to you, now the trick is to strip out all of the information that the original creater may have spent hours researching. So lots of people who used to transfer freely (myself included) now rarely do.

RE: John C. Pearl
Did you mean 1942 instead of 1042, or was it 1945 and just the month is in error?

RE: David Doan b.1794
They kind of frown on you adding people if you don't know where they are buried, but I do it sometimes, especially if I have every piece of information, including parents/children, but can't figure out the burial location. You can create one for Sarah if you want to and link her to parents. BD

RE: David Doan b.1794
Ok--The Doane Family Association book mentions that he had 14 children, but only 5 were listed in the book, so using that I can't verify anything for you. There is probably a lot of stuff on which I can look up. Obviously not all the kids are listed because their burial locations are likely unknown.

One family tree lists these kids:
Joseph Doane1820 1900
Rachel Doane1821 1852
Jonathan Doane1822 1914
Margaret Doane1830
David Doane1832
Mary Doane1833
Ebenezer Doane1834 1899
Ephraim Doane1837 1838
Martha Doane1839 1915
Sarah Doane1842
Birthdate for Sarah is listed as 05 Dec 1842 in Morgan Co, IN; can't find a death date.

Hi, Can you give me the Find A Grave number, as there are many David Doans? Thanks! BD
