DO NOT COPY MY PHOTO'S PLEASE, without asking for permission first.
FAG rules state the stone takes prescendence on Name and dates. Descrepancies can be added in the Bio Section.
I believe in sharing information on our ancestors with others and when I am able to add accurate information to this site, I am happy to do so. I have worked many cemeteries in Barnstable County and Bristol County, Warren, Swansea and Bristol and Pawtucket.
It gives me great satisfaction to help others to find the graves of their relatives and friends and I often walk local and nearby state cemeteries, to search and document. Especially the forgotten Veteran.
My ancestors are mostly from Rhode Island...Austrian/Polish and French Canadian.
I do believe we need to be respectful to the living regarding what we place on Find A Grave, so I am careful about putting info up of living relatives from Obituaries, especially residential info.
I do use Obits as a reference, which is very helpful for unreadable gravestones and relationship clarification. However Obits are a reflection of the authors whims and memory and can often be wrong. I do not link based on this source alone. Please Do Not post Obits as Photos, send them to me and I will post most of the info with reference to the newspaper.
Often; a name on a stone with no Death date can mean the person is buried elsewhere or hasn't died yet. It can also mean the stone was never engraved with a date.
I Keep in mind that Census Records and Family Search are good reference guides, they should not be a sole source of input for FAG.
Help me make these records as accurate as possible with the utmost respect.
Better to Omit, than to be wrong.
