I have been passionately working on my family Genealogy for a great number of years.
U.S.Army Veteran 1977. South Carolina, Kentucky & Germany. On my weekends off I spent traveling. I was a cook. Changed Mos Draftsman, Photography. Took Photos for Unit in Germany. I was honored to have served.
Manners is important. Sometimes things are felt so strongly that a simple please and thank you makes it go down a bit easier. With a polite tone and explanation. Please include source, Memorial numbers that pertain to SAC or anything else that would move things along.
~*~If you are sending me an edit to change information on a memorial. Please submit a source, a source could be a document to verify the information. Send me a link. I really don’t want your family's (.jpg) copy. Tell me how you got the information. You wouldn't want your research to be with out sources.
Family history goes in bio’s with your ID number,
Census to can be flawed will be mentioned in the bios.
Birth, Marriage and Death date changes, will only happen with verified proof. This again would include the link of information.
Headstones help prove much information about the person. Please add a photo.~*~
I so appreciate those who have done this it really makes a big difference on how long it takes to make the change.
If you are rude to me and not appreciate the memorial I will not reply.
~~*~~ About Obits: I will not list full obits . I also will not list living names to protect their privacy. There has been car break ins and home invasions while the family is in attendance. I will list a full obit if its very old and there is a good chance that the names listed are deceased. I will not contribute to the thieves who are doing this. Please reconsider how you post yours. ~~*~~
It never astounds me how these Individuals that are working on Civil War Vets memorials. That they acquire them by transfers when they are not directly related at all. Just for the sake of collecting them. But they want you to abide by the rules for asking for them. So by allowing them to collect them (like baseball cards) your denying family members actual families no matter the connection to care for them. Just my opinion. With that said I will not transfer to those persons.
