Please remember those men and women in the military that have and continue to sacrifice for our safety and for our freedom.
The original intent of this site was to remember our friends and families so they not be forgotten especially by those that will follow us.
Now for the hard stuff. IT'S NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S F.A.G. ANYMORE. You can ask any of us old timers. People put a lot of time and research into their memorials but as with so much of the internet people blatantly steal our photographs for publication - which happened to me - and copy verbatim memorial biographies giving no credit to F.A.G. It's about respect for this once great site!! I watched my own father's memorial I created at his death reassigned under the new regime to a stranger brand new to the older restricted ways of this site so watch your memorials like a hawk. To see the integrity of F.A.G. go downhill this fast is so discouraging and I have had to remove so much just so it won't be stolen and the new F.A.G. administration doesn't take any action to remedy it or censure those that do such things. Somebody can take your work from F.A.G. and repost it under their name and the new management approves of it. Enjoy while you can. Most of us are removing our material and getting out of here before our research is contaminated by unverified data without any moderating or concern for the time and research of dedicated contributors that made it the respected site it once was. N.B. this does not refer to the new policy of allowing a family to claim their own relative when the memorial was taken from an obituary by a stranger. This is regarding stealing of eight year old memorials created by active members that newcomers to F.A.G. decide they will access as their own. What gives??
