I previously asked that death certificates not be posted on my memorials. I think it is strange that the manager of a memorial has no control over what is added. I am seeing more death certificates posted on my memorials. I give up. If I do see death certificates posted on my family members I will request that they are removed. As I stated before do we need to have the details of someone's death posted on the memorial. The death certificates show homicides and suicides as cause of death and graphic descriptions of injuries. Do we really need this information on a memorial?

When I started this journey Find a Grave was not a genealogy site. OI am working on editing my memorials "properly." I seem to be receiving edits that are incorrectly linking family members. PLEASE be sure this information is correct.

I am told I am one of the snarky people I complain about. If I have offended anyone I am truly sorry.

I am getting a lot of genealogy questions. Just because I added a memorial does not mean I am related.

I am getting requests to remove my photos now. Because the other photo is better. I do not claim to be a professional photographer. We volunteer are doing the best we can.

Lastly, just be kind. Life is too short.

PLEASE use the edit tab to request transfers and linking parents and spouses.
