My objective in creating (and/or managing) a memorial is simple – it is to honor the person's life, no matter how short or long a period of time that individual has lived.
Please send requests for additions, corrections, linking, and transfers through the system FAG provides using the "Edit" tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial.
EDITS: All requested edit information needs to be substantiated by an official source for it to be added or changed for a memorial. A family tree is NOT an official source. Please send an accessible link for your official source. In order to send substantiating information for your edits, USE THE "SUGGEST ANY OTHER CORRECTION OR ADDITION" LINK ON THE APPLICABLE MEMORIAL. If your official source information does not have an accessible link, you may send a copy of this information (along with the name of the book or document, any author's name, date of publication, and page number/s) to me at email address: email@example.com.
UNKNOWN BURIALS: I do not link to them. Per Find-A-Grave: "Find a Grave's purpose is to catalog and make available final disposition information. If burial information is unknown for an individual, Find a Grave is probably not the right place for their information."
Please Note: I do not use birth dates or death ages from death records/certificates, as these are frequently wrong in the older records, in my experience.** I am unable to use information submitted from ancestry.com as a substantiating source, as some information (except for actual official document copies) from the site is inaccurate. In addition, only paying members of the site can access information.
~~~Any offensive messages will be forwarded immediately to F.A.G. admin.~~~
F.A.G. transfer policy: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. State your exact relationship, please. If you are seeking transfers to have all my family together, use the virtual cemetery option.
I am happy to post information from an obituary that will enhance the memorial in the BIO section of a memorial.
The sources I post on the memorials I manage are accessible to anyone wishing to confirm them, as I use the free website www.familysearch.org for official document copies, as well as online published books for information.
Please do NOT leave biographical information and obituaries in a virtual flower. This is against findagrave.com policy. Per Find-A-Grave: "Do not leave derogatory, politically charged, biographical information, or obituaries as a note. Inappropriate notes will be removed, and members who continue to abuse notes will have their account closed."
