I receive hundreds of edit requests monthly and diligently review and update as time allows, within the 21 day time frame designated by F.A.G.
It takes hours to verify accuracy. Please include your PRIMARY sources, not including 'blanket' statements as " found it on Ancestry," etc. This will expedite your edit request.
I find significant errors regularly.
If you inundate me with multiple requests, you probably will not get yours done first. Preference is given for politeness, gratitude, reasonability.

Requests to link families may be denied if I have no verification of accuracy.

Disguising a Burial Unknown to look 'legitimate' usually is very evident and will be reported to management. Adding 'guesses' as to dates, cemeteries and location of deaths is fraud.

Adding family links without adequate research and documentation tends to create MULTIPLE errors that require hours of work to remove, if they get corrected at all. It is the responsibility of the requestor to do the research, not the memorial manager who did the photos.

A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.
