A HUGE thank you to folks who provide documented Primary Source information to verify the "edits" they send.
When sending me corrections please include a primary source of information, not stories from books, transcribed info or undocumented family trees. Since others will rely on our work for their own research, I prefer to verify data - especially dates and family links - before making edits.
If you are new to genealogy research, you may or may not have heard the terms "Primary Source" or "Secondary Source". ... Primary sources come from records that were created by someone who is required to document accurate records, an eyewitness or a person involved at the time of the event.
DO NOT USE THE PUBLIC MESSAGE BOARD TO REQUEST TRANSFERS OR TO MAKE EDITS .
To request a transfer or edit information please use the EDIT tab at the top right of the person's page, check the drop down menu for options.
Please remember to include your membership number when asking for information about an entry I have made. It makes it sooooo much easier for me to find the person you are asking about.
I am currently working on recording Beechmount Cemetery, Edmonton. It is a work in progress and will take quite a while to complete. Please be patient, however if you have a special request, please ask, I may be able to help you right away. Most of the names have been entered, now to add photos to the memorial pages. I do my best to enter inscriptions written in Chinese, Ukrainian and other languages. When you find errors in my transcriptions of names PLEASE let me know.
I do have photos of most all of the markers that I have transcribed from Canadian Cemeteries.I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, " what a mess" If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.
If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.
I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can explain to me how the person is related to you.
However, as FaGer Scott wrote :- If there is any particular entry that I have made that is very important to you, related or not, if you sponsor their page I will transfer it to you ASAP. This helps Find a Grave and shows me that this entry truly is important to you and that you are not simply trying to "collect" all you can find of a particular surname.
Should you find that I have inadvertently duplicated an entry or photo please let me know, I will remedy the situation as soon as possible.
If you add a headstone photo to a memorial that is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than mine (FAG rules), please let me know so I can delete mine. Note: FAG advises "close-ups" of portions of the headstone are not necessary if the information is clearly visible in the main photo.
Having been infected with Lyme Disease in Germany 2007 I need less stress in my life and need "gentle exercise". I find taking photos for Find A Grave gets me the fresh air, exercise and the tranquility I need in the summer months and uploading the information exercises my mind in winter.
