1/11/2021: Happy New Year to all! Working on submitted edits, requests, etc. Thanks for your patience.
10/28/2019: I disabled messages again because I keep getting transfer requests on them. If you need to get a hold of me, select any memorial under my care and click on Suggest Edits, then scroll to the bottom and click on Select Other Edits. Thanks!
I will not make any corrections/additions that you can make yourself using the Suggest Edits button. No exceptions. Links to family members, birth/death dates and place, etc - those are auto approved every 21 days, I believe.
PHOTO EDITS: If there's a photo on the memorial, chances are I did not take it. If you have an issue with a photo, please click on the name of the volunteer underneath each photo - they are the ones who can remove the photo if needed.
I have asked Findagrave to bulk transfer memorials I have in several cemeteries so that I can focus on other things.
Only 20 edits per member per week, please. If you are one of those that submits a ton of edits at a time, those get pushed to the bottom of the pile.
The purpose of this site is not necessarily to have a lengthy bio on everyone, so any kind of data is appreciated by me, in any way, shape or form. :)
I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their kin easily & accurately. For every memorial I enter, that's a memorial that has a chance of getting into the right hands of family or friends. Thanks to everyone who has sent encouraging and positive thoughts! I don't always have time to answer everyone back, but please know you too are appreciated. :)
REJECTIONS: If I have rejected an Edit, I will always put a note in there for the reason - please be sure to check! 99.9% of the time, it is because people are providing bio info in the Marker Transcription field, and that is incorrect. Another reason will be names in ALL CAPS, or asking questions in the Marker Transcription field.
Duplicates: It's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know.
If I enter a memorial on March 1st for Colby Smith and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Colby Smith on March 15th, the one entered on March 15th is the dupe, not mine, regardless of how much info is or isn't on the memorial.
Transfers: I am not one of those people who refuse to transfer in or out of guidelines. Ask and ye shall receive, unless you're 1 of those people who don't transfer out of guidelines. Please include your Findagrave volunteer ID number, and request each one individually.
If you have any questions about family history research, or need help navigating this wonderful site, I always enjoy the opportunity to help you. I am not an Admin. Please contact me via the SAC tab on any memorial I have created.
