That is what I call those that are so anxious to add memorials,. T hey are connected to all the funeral homes and newspapers and just as soon as a new death is announced, they add it to FAG. Never allowing time for a family member to claim and manage the memorial. They always add the memorial days before the actual burial and never taking time to look for links that should be added.
Over time, I have provided edits to thousands of those memorials so hurriedly added by others. I am not looking for any credit for doing this. I have family connections to many and I like to see their memorials as complete as I am able to make them.
