The findagrave administration has commented that burial unknown is recommended if proof of burial is not certain or provided when requested. Listing burials in assumed cemeteries is unprofessional and creates confusion for researchers and those searching for tombstones. Unfortunately, some contributors will not link to unknown burials but will link to cemeteries for which they have no verification of fact.

Consider that the information given in memorials is not only provided by the memorial manager but also by others through edit requests which cannot always be verified and therefore may be inaccurate. As of July 2017, I have approved 10,200 direct edit requests and countless more through other correspondence. Changes may also be added without the review of the memorial manager if not acknowledged in a given time period. This process is subject to revision as long as the memorial exists. And well beyond the term of the memorial manager. Be respectful that the burial was located. Ultimate accuracy of deceased is the responsibility of you and any others interested.

Please do not assume a middle name by suggesting a surname. I will not add without a baptism record, their personal signature or carved in full on tombstone. Middle initials on tombstones with first letter of mother's surname are seldom the actual baptized middle name which many incorrectly add as fact, a practice which only recently became more popular. Such initials are also often redundant with maiden names. I prefer to display names as they are most commonly perceived by skilled researchers and/or as they appear on the tombstone.

My thanks and devotion to you who are courteous, polite and appreciative. Those who are rude, demanding and condescending, don't call me, I'll call you.
