Not real fond of this new look at all or the ads which seem to have invaded every aspect of our lives. And while I understand they have made it harder to create duplicate entries it is frustrating to have to confirm numerous times that you are not creating a duplicate for "Infant Son or Daughter" or "Child of". I can't even hazard a guess at the number of hopes and dreams that lie, in the form of little children, forever sleeping under the sod of Oakwood. When I am poring over interment records, my heart is just overwhelmed and undone by the sheer number whose lives were hardly more than a single breath. :(
The enormous amount of research did for Lincoln Cemetery while serving as a volunteer, secretary, photographer and treasurer for the Montgomery Cemetery Rehabilitation Authority has left me with health issues that keep me from participating as much as I would like to this endeavor. A huge shout out to Cemetery Sue and the Cemetery Czar. Their love and encouragement has helped fuel my own passion for cemetery preservation in the Montgomery and surrounding areas.
BIOS EDITS TRANSFERS AND PHOTOS
Just a few, quick things that are important to me;
Let me say this first, anyone who resorts to name calling will be blocked from contacting me. This happened to me not too long ago and I am just not putting up with that anymore through this website.
Please don't ask me to add graphic details. While I am all about adding records for them, please take the time to blur out any gruesome details. Details can be incorporated in their biography with language that isn't salacious or disrespectful to their lives and any living descendants. Keep in mind that these people lived and some died horrifically and not all of us need be privy to the details of their final moments.
Please don't ask me to transfer simply because you need to add information. Sometimes I do make exceptions and transfer out of guidelines. Rarely do I add dates gleaned from census records. I have learned in twenty plus years of research they are often inaccurate and conflicting. In those cases I include that information in the biography area.
Please don't assume I am the source of erroneous links or information and bite my head off. Always ready and willing to admit my own faux pa's and apologize when needed.
Edits and corrections will be handled within the time period allotted so please be patient. The greatest evolution of this website in my humble opinion is the family links.
Please, please.. do not download any photograph of mine and upload it as your own! Please ask before use elsewhere other than your own files. This is not about giving me any kind of kudos but is about respecting my time and effort.
