various McClaren findagrave memorials
Hello. I sent you a message yesterday regarding the duplicate memorial you had put up for Sarah Edna McClaren. Upon continued uploading of photos of headstones I recently took at Oak Park cemetery, I realized that there are several duplicate McClaren memorials.
Before I proceed further, allow me to explain that I am a findagrave fan as well as a genealogist with ancestors buried at Oak Park. When I visit cemeteries, I photograph as many headstones as my camera will allow, even those whose names I don't recognize. I later upload all to findagrave.
I learned early in my membership with findagrave that before I create a memorial for anyone, I must first check to be sure that it hasn't already been created by anyone else. That being said, the following McClaren memorials put up by you are also duplicates of ones created earlier:
1. Nellie Frances McClaren
your memorial #: 108607851
original memorial #: 100278999 (put up in Nov 2012); this one has an obituary with it & is linked to her parents.
2. Joseph Baldwin McClaren
your memorial #: 108609468
original memorial #: 84272331 (put up in Jan 2012); this one has an obituary & a photo of the headstone, & is linked to his parents.

In addition, I I uploaded headstone photos for Joseph B McClaren's two wives, whose memorials were originally created by you:
1. Jennie Forbes McClaren (1876-1909); his 1st wife
2. Ida McKay McClaren (1870-1950), his 2nd wife.

So, in addition to deleting the duplicate memorials, would you mind linking Joseph's two wives to him on his original memorial (#84272331)?

I hope you don't take offense at my messages. It helps us all when we have the best memorials out there! The more they are linked/connected, the better the info for us all!

Sarah Edna McClaren memorial #108607920
Greetings, just thought I'd let you know that your memorial for Sarah Edna McClaren was already posted, back in Nov 2012. See Mem. #100281059.
