LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE!!!
I really hope that we will have a choice between using the old format and the new format for this website, because I really do NOT like working with the new version.
My purpose in doing this is to see as many people who are no longer with us remembered and connected to their family members.
I DO believe in connecting those people to their relatives whether their place of burial is known or not. They existed, they are DEAD, and they also have a right to be remembered, and to be included with the rest of their family. They are still very important links in a family´s genealogy, especially as Find A Grave is tied to Ancestry--which makes it all the more important.
I do research the people that I add to Find A Grave as best I can---sometimes spending many hours to find info about them. I am not in this to try to see how many entries I can get, to compete with anyone, to play games, or to try to outdo anyone. What information I come up with, I dig up on my own. I do not go behind anyone´s back and take credit for anything that I didn´t find myself---and I wouldn´t do anything to discredit another person´s work unless they did something to REALLY deserve it, nor would I take credit away from someone else. Unfortunately it seems that everybody does NOT think like I do.
