I add memorials as I have time when I see obits in my local papers. I don't usually have additional information on these people. I also add obits from my research into my family lines.
I do check each name before I add it, so ideally there would be no duplicates, however, mistakes happen. There are often alternate spellings of a name, or tombstone dates are wrong and my search does not find a previous entry. If you find a duplicate please message me and if you have the earlier entry, we will work together to get the information consolidated!
One of the reasons I do this is to help ensure those who have gone before us are remembered and, if possible, 'reunited' with family. If you find a relative or close friend among my burials, I encourage you to request a transfer. If the memorial is for a member of my family tree, I would love to exchange information with you, and we can discuss a transfer. You can leave me a public message or use my email.
I welcome corrections and additions, but would appreciate if you would leave a message giving your source, particularly if it conflicts with my information. I do NOT add obituaries unless they are out of copyright. I also try to avoid including names of the living. If you are friend or family of the deceased and wish to have this information added, please ask for a transfer. (But be aware that obituaries are considered copyrighted information and are not to be added under Find A Grave rules.) THANKS!
My family tree surnames include
DEBEE, D'ERCOLE, EDGAR, FREDERICKS/FRERICHS, HAHNENKAMP, HIXON, JANCO, KOLK, McCLOSKEY, PETRINI, POYNTER, STRIEBEL, WEISS
