A BIG THANK YOU goes out to so many people who have been transferring so many of my family's memorials to me recently.

If you make a mistake sending an edit (or need to add to it), you can cancel it this way:
Go to your profile (way up in the upper right corner; click on your name and choose 'profile'). Just to the right of your Bio, under 'Contributions', click on 'Suggested Edits'. This is the place where you approve all the edits that other people send you. Look at the two tabs: 'Suggestions for Me' and 'Suggestions I've Sent'. Click on that other tab 'Suggestions I've Sent' and you can then cancel it and correct or add to it.

If DATE IS BURIAL DATE or other death date disclaimer is on a memorial, when you send a correction to the date you'll need to send me a note to remove that disclaimer--otherwise you'll be leaving inaccurate info behind. Edits will get done automatically after 21 days--if you want them done sooner than that, just ask for transfers. I will gladly transfer anybody not related to me to any interested person. I only ask that you be willing to transfer it on to a closer friend or family member if you get such a request in the future.

The map shows the counties where I have relatives (and/or their spouses) buried (out to fifth cousins in my generation; adjusted accordingly in other generations) who I had found on Find A Grave as of early November 2019. Different colors indicate a range of how many in each of 1126 counties and independent cities in 49 states (all except Alaska), plus six Canadian provinces and Washington, DC.

And it all stems from 32 people--my great-great-great-grandparents--and their siblings. Also listed are the number of those great-great-greats buried in various counties.
