I've appreciated the information I've found here, and just want to give back by contributing. I enjoy genealogy and share what I can.
It might take me six months (sadly even more) to get to edits since I have a life outside of FAG... constant emails and messages from you will not change this and takes the joy out of sharing.
Certain members add duplicate photos to memorials, please stop... it's a waste of time and storage.
If photos are of your family members PLEASE feel free to copy and use appropriately... no need to ask. If we have an ancestor in common, email me so maybe we can share information. As for using the photos on other sites, especially Ancestry.com, feel free... most do anyway. It's just such a shame Ancestry and others charge especially when they received the information from free contributions. Acknowledgement is appreciated.
We all make mistakes (me too)... please check your information before asking for changes... I've received complaints about information provided by others. I don't need proof of your info, since I will include your FAG ID in edits and bios. If there is a problem with your info, people can take it up with you. If you find information in the bio area, supply information to be ADDED to the bio... I will not change other people's contributions but add to them with your contribution and FAG#. I delete emails that do not indicate a correction/change, just regurgitated info from some site, or inconsequential info like funeral home... there isn't enough hours in a day.
Please let me know (once) if you find a mistake or have additional information/corrections BY SELECTING THE EDIT LINK ON THE MEMORIAL PAGE.
Please use supplied FAG links for transfer requests etc. indicating your relationship to transfer requests... I am related to some of these people too! I'm really not as grumpy as it sounds above, until I get 15 emails regarding the same edit. ; -)
Thanks... and Happy Hunting!
