In 2009 I picked up the hobby of genealogy. I have since been on the most amazing journey of triumphs, ups and downs, mysteries, curves, battlefields, circles, and dead ends.I am thankful for the time, effort, and dedication of those who contribute to FAG.The genealogical journey has taken me to such places as Kentucky, California, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Illinois. My linage includes the surnames Stevens/Stephens, Moyer, Fullen, Davis and related lines on my husband's side AND Poole/Pool, Ford, Barnett, Elliott, and related lines on my side.
I will admit that I am not perfect and I do make mistakes.Early on in this journey I was easily led down the wrong road and have since learned to check the accuracy of my information before assuming it to be fact and posting it publicly. According to FAG the purpose of the site is to register graves BUT ”The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away”...and I will do my very best to meet that goal in spite of any roadblocks.
All correction, edits,and biographical information should be submitted through the EDIT tab on the memorial. Please include a source or documentation for all edits as I will not edit without a source. Biographical edits should submitted as “suggest other correction or addition”. Also note that managers have 30 days to perform the edits and may choose to approve, deny or ignore edits received.
Transfer request should be made using the EDIT tab and the “suggest other correction or addition”. Transfers will be made within FAG guidelines unless the individual is a direct descendant of mine. (To date 6/2017 I have refused only one transfer) As for those memorials that I indexed in the LAKEWOOD MEMORIAL PARK I am willing to transfer them to relatives outside of the FAG guidelines.
