NEW PET PEEVE: Memorials that are "dumped" into a cemetery with the right name, but wrong state and/or GA county. I've found two in the last month! Please do your research before adding them to a cemetery.
Duplicate memorials: if I have made one, let me know; I will ask FAG administrators to merge into one. They have been very helpful in the past to merge duplicate memorials. When FAG administrators merge two memorials, none of the flowers, etc. are deleted. If you have made a duplicate memorial of one of my memorials, please be kind enough to delete when asked to do so or I will ask FAG to merge your memorial with mine. Exception: sometimes there are two memorials for a CSA Soldier, one in the cemetery where he is most likely buried and one back home. These should not be merged.
Transfer requests: use the edit tab on the memorial and click on suggest other edit or correction, list your relationship and please include your memjbership #.
Edits: Please send a note using the edit tab as to where you found the information you would like edited. This will help so I don't have to do further research. Thanks
The fuss about photos: the rule used to be, unless you took the photo, do not copy and post on other websites, such as Ancestry.com which is a paid website. Also there is a copyright issue. After all of my personal and family photos were being copied and spread all over the internet, I deleted them. FAG has changed the rules and now if you post a photo, it fair game for any and everyone to copy and post all over the internet. Therefore, I deleted my personal photos years ago. Enough said!!
Thanks to everyone who have left flowers and notes on my Uncle: Augustus (Gus or Junior) Byrd (# 48422763), who died in a Japanese Prison Camp in 1943. This brave soldier as well as all others who have served and/or given their life for their Country, in any war or act of aggression, deserve all the honor and respect we can give them.
NO Death certificates, please! Although permissable by FAG, they really are in poor taste and take up space that could be used for photos. If someone needs to know cause of death, they can research vital records and find this info for medical reasons.
Special thanks to all FAG members who have so graciously transferred memorials to me. Your kindness and generosity are very much appreciated.
