I have been receiving copies of recent obituary notices with requests that they be added to memorials. I will not add those for the following reasons: First, they usually are copyrighted, and I would be liable under copyright laws. Second, they include names of living persons and sometimes a cause of death, both not allowed by Find A Grave rules. If you care to write an original bio, following all rules and laws, I will consider adding that.
I try to watch over and tend to the physical graves of our local Viet Nam losses. I have a virtual cemetery for Viet Nam. If you know of service members who died there, let me know and I will include them.
I gratefully receive transfers, but I am not a "collector" and rarely request them except for the closest of relatives. If you wish to transfer to me, you may, and I will care for them. If you choose to maintain memorials you have set up, that's fine, too.
I am now reconsidering transferring outside of guidelines as I have transferred a number of memorials that have not been maintained--updates are not done. I usually do corrections/additions within 24 hours, so if you have "tons" of additional information, please send it. Additions and corrections are celebrated! I truly appreciate those who use the new edit system to send them. Please use option #6, "Suggest any other. . ." for questions about a specific memorial so I can be sure of which one you are referencing. Thank you so much.
