Bio

Researching mostly Sailor Surname including Sailer-Saylor-Sayler-Seiler-Seyler PA, MD, OH and IL and beyond (from Germany, Holland, Switzerland and England)

Thanks for reading my profile.

Many thanks to all the countless considerate and collaborative researchers, photographers and memorial holders out there.. Even though FAG gives no recognition to the hundreds of thousands of edits, people linked to families and Bios/obits submitted, our collective efforts on FAG are what makes it so useful and informative. It truly and honestly honors our ancestors. I don't care about the numbers but the quality of the content. If I have gone to the trouble to find and submit a Bio, please don't remove my name and contributor number from it. FAG is actually providing it now so striping it out is rather rude. I mean, if you had provided one for the memorials you manage, I wouldn't have had to research one.
-------------------------------------------------

A few important things..

Obits/Bios:
FAG DOES permit them. FAG is many things to many people, I'm hoping you will remember that if you are someone who shuns posting other's contributions. If I've sent you an obit for the person, please post it. If you're too busy to post it please consider transferring the memorial to me because I'm more than willing to manage it.
- I include sources for what I submit and also my member name and number as submitter. Don't remove it, it is part of the submission. I did the work to find it, not you.

Photos:
I've requested headstone photos especially for the older graves before they disappear from age or developer land-grabs and eminent domain. If your taking photos a few suggestions:

-If only one photo name is requested but the stone has 2 names please provide a shot of the whole thing sometimes you don't even know they had a spouse. Close crops won't include these important hints.
-Knowing the proximity of the headstones in relation to each other can be very helpful. If possible, please take an extra shot showing the grouping of the family plot. These hints can sometimes reveal important family relationships. If you post a photo for me thank you very much and I really appreciate your efforts. In the rare situation that the photo can't be read, please don't be offended if I request it again. Sometimes the light is bad or the upload gets pixelated and the stone can't be read. If you want to use a headstone photo I've taken feel free to use it for non-commercial use but please include my member name listed below.

Transfers:
If you want a transfer of a memorial I have posted send a request via the edit tab and if it isn't one of my ancestors I'm happy to transfer to you. If it is maybe we are related! Thanks for any photos, contacts or edit requests regarding any of these families genealogy.

Errors and edits:
I try really hard to only provide good data. I usually have more than one source before I submit. With that said, I do make mistakes from time to time. If you find a mistake I have made please contact me (via edit) and I'm happy to update or even do a bit more research. I'm not interested in collecting numbers only accuracy so don't be shy, I won't be upset at you or mad, I promise.

If I've sent you an edit request that you don't agree to right off for some reason please, be considerate enough to look at the other memorial(s) I'm requesting the link to. Usually I've spent a considerable amount of time researching this and that's why the edit was requested. In most cases there will be information that confirms the relationship on the other person's memorial. As a good memorial holder and FAG member I don't think it's unrealistic to expect that you would at least take a moment or two to review the information provided before you click decline otherwise you are just wasting peoples time and efforts. If you decline based on other information you have that shows a conflict, please provide that detail or contact me and we can resolve the conflict or enlighten each other.

Our common goals:
My goal is to capture the data as best I can to honor those that came before us, learn about them and document them for the future generations when the stones and families no longer exist. At the end of the day my goal is to have an accurate record of the headstone holder - and hopefully their family members after all this site is really to honor them isn't it?
