"We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery." The object of Find A Grave is to document burials, not make it a repository for details more appropriately posted on a genealogical website - or in some cases, better kept in your own private notes.
On occasion the Declined Message feature does not function. When that occurs, if you do not have a valid e-mail address displayed or if you have messages disabled, you will not receive any additional information regarding a declined suggestion. You may contact me directly for further explanation. My e-mail address is displayed below.
Please do not send suggestions based on unsourced entries found on an Ancestry tree or other genealogical website.
Please don't ask for a town name to be added as a birth location when a birth clearly occurred in a rural location, regardless of what might have been written later, following the misleading practice of naming a nearby town. For example, I have received suggestions to add a town - before the town was even laid out. We pay the greatest respect to early residents by accurately noting where they were born, lived and died. If you want a town name as a geographical point of reference, you can keep that in your own records. With a few key strokes, you can add it in the bio section of memorials you create.
