UPDATE - May 2023 - With the new update changes recently instituted, I will now require some type of source if you are adding to someone's bio.
I check each and every update that comes across for my memorials. I've done extensive research behind most of them, and recently I've been receiving many unsubstantiated requests to add data which is not on a tombstone, and which I cannot document. I have no qualms in declining these. I've had someone actually respond to me that "everyone knows not all the info on FG is correct" - which I'll have no part of. And a new challenge lately - several requests which I cannot confirm, and the person making the requests does not accept emails. In my mind, if you cannot stand behind your requests, they are meaningless. With the new update changes recently instituted, I will now require some type of source if you are adding to someone's bio. As a long time participant on FG, I would kindly remind everyone that this is a site to honor those who've gone before us; and not a website to create a family tree.

My memorials are the result of walk-throughs I've done for each cemetery over the years. I am now going to start to add listings for those whom I could not find a stone for; and I will include whatever the source may be that points to each cemetery. Thank you to all who work my requests in a timely manner, I know it can be a little overwhelming. I do lots of research using what's available to ensure the information I have is correct; but I'm not infallible. If something is wrong, don't hesitate to let me know.

I do a lot of research in Penna, both York County and Snyder County (family/college). I've begun to try to update a Snyder county book (Wagenseller) of Snyder County graves that was published about 1900, focusing on, but not exclusively, those cemeteries NOT included on the Snyder County website.

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members per Find A Grave rules. And if you are not directly related, I do updates once a week, at a minimum. Please use the Edit tab, and I'll add what ever information is appropriate and cite you as the source in the Notes section. Feel free to use any of my photos (other than my own family above - that little guy is me on Mom's lap) to enhance your research - that was always the purpose in posting them.
