For a lot of us, doing genealogy is a hobby. We do it for fun, for our family, for our children or for others. But when we research one person, we may have to research a bunch of others to get to that one person we are looking for. With that being said, we are capable of making mistakes along the way. We don’t need ugly or rude emails or messages stating that we made a mistake. Just give us your information so we can compare with what we have and then we can make the change. Let’s keep this simple and fun for all! Thank you.
Today (March 5, 2021), I received another rude email from an Anonymous person who has several memorials that I have been doing research on (family). I made a suggestion, sent the proof and that Anonymous person attacked me not only with my BIO but with the suggestion I made. He or she could have simply replied with an explanation without being rude. I just don't understand why people have to be so rude when we are doing things we love.
Recently (Aug 2018), I put in a request to another graver to add birth and death information on a distant relative. His reply to me was rude, ugly, unnecessary, disrespectful and simply calling me stupid and a lying about the information. I went back to my research and sure enough, I was correct. I provided him the death certificate of the relative plus dug a little deeper to find the information he was referring to in the email and sent the death certificate of this other person to him as well. His reply back to me was still rude and said not to send him any more replies. With all this being said, I just want to add - we all make mistakes. Accept it, fix it and get over it. I will change any information you request but if I think there is a question about the information, I will reply back more polite and ask for proof. Or ask how you obtain the information. Because I may want a copy for my records. I don't want to be mean, disrespectful or rude. We all do this because we love it. Lets keep it peaceful.

Also, I would very much like to thank all the photo takers of all the headstones. Without you all, there would be many questions. So THANK YOU ALL!
