A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
Please visit the memorial of my mother, an August birthday remembrance for a special mother and teacher Jane Hoag.
Biggest Joys about Findagrave:
--Traveling to cemeteries and photographing grave markers;
--Personal satisfaction when my entries are researched, entered correctly, and nicely presented;
--Discovering burial and genealogy info on my own extended family;
--Helping others in their research; and
--Connecting with other Findagravers.
Biggest Headaches about Findagrave:
--Duplicate entries made by those who don't take time to perform a general search;
--Maiden names entered for children and unmarried women;
--Multiple marriage names entered in surname field (put name at time of death and explain other married names in bio or by links);
--Names entered all in capitals (shouting) or all in lower case (illiterate).
Thanks to all out there who:
--are helpful, enthusiastic, and courteous to other volunteers,
--send me corrections, obits, links, and other information to add to my entries,
--check their own work,
--keep up with edits, corrections, and suggestions from other contributors, and
--provide newspaper or website citations for obits so others can use this info.
I typically respond within 24 hrs and consider transfers to remote family members as long as I'm not a relative or have a special connection to the individual. Thanks for all the messages I've received over the years. I'm honored to manage my great-uncle Larry Aichele's memorials (deceased) and those at Evergreen Cemetery in Tucson created by fellow contributors Bob and Sue.
