I'm finishing up working on the last few hundred abandoned Dorri Safford memorials I volunteered to take over. If I still have one you are interested in let me know
I don't link to "Burial Unknown". This isn't your note folder. If you want me to put the names of the parents or spouse in the bio section, send me the name in a suggestion.
Before you send me an 'edit' to link to a spouse, take a moment to see if YOU have the memorial for the spouse. If so . . . why are you sending me that 'edit'? Just link them.
If you discover someone has transferred a duplicate to you, I can get that taken care of if you transfer that duplicate to me.
I don't, knowingly, put the names of living people on memorials. If you see something I missed, please let me know so I can delete it. If you are composing an email to me with all the names of the living descendants you want me to put in the bio of a memorial, including your own name, save us both some time . . you to write it; me to read it and delete it.
I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friend's memorial.
I like to look up additional info. for other people's memorials. More folks should hop off the 'flower' button and hop on a death index or the census, and send some 'edit's, to actually improve more memorials on the site.
On July 28th, 2013 I was blessed to receive almost 45,000 abandoned memorials to work on in Italian Cemetery in Colma, CA. I worked on them nearly every day for 3 years and found homes for a large portion of them. On August 8th, 2016 I transferred the remaining 26,911 memorials to the Find A Grave account. I will continue to work on them, just at a slower pace.
I want to thank all the photographers out there getting headstone photos on memorials so the rest of us can sit on the couch and 'visit' our relatives. You may never know just how grateful we are.
OH WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THOSE LAST NAMES OF A DISCIPLE OF ELIZABETH TAYLOR -
You want to acknowledge all the marriages, but you don't want a crappy looking memorial with 6 last names crammed into the maiden and/or last name space.
Find A Grave suggests;
The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' space is only for her maiden name.
