I CAN? and I DO make mistakes---NO-ONE IS PERFECT...
I do check for Duplicates BUT like All Ya'll- one can slip thru the cracks.
My bio states over 4 year member BUT I have been a FAG member for over 11 years ~ when I changed emails ~lost the acct. stayed inactive until 2015.

If I have a duplicate sent it to to merge.. WONDERFUL feature ~ THANK YOU
How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?

The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone/b Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' is only for the maiden name. AND this goes for the variations of some last names. OR First Names. WHAT the headstone has is what I USE. I will add what YOU or YOUR FAMILY called to the bio!
This will apply to a lady or a man . They may have been Your PEE PA. not everybody else called them that!
An example is Frances/ Fannie/ Francis/ GRANNY or Charles, Chuck, Pop. Honey. Baby! and 1 married name is all that should be in the LAST NAME field.
I see many people from others states adding them in our AREA all made from photos from spouses markers/headstones, ect and THAT IS Wrong.. They make them from the photos that we add. DO NOT- USE ANY PHOTOS OF HEADSTONES THAT WE HAVE ADDED AND ADD THEM AS YOUR OWN TO ANY MEMORIAL ON FIND A GRAVE/b
.When you add these to your family tree: It would be great of You could PLEASE give Us a little credit.
Edits should be thru the edit suggestion Process. NOT as a MESSGAGE left on my wall. Suggestions are always welcome thru the suggestion tab. PLEASE send the memorial number for the person you are referring to. I'm NOT A MIND READER!

IF you have info, Obitutary, ect. AN THERE IS """"NOT""" already added to BIO. . PLEASE send thru the edit suggestion or a message.. PLEASE DO NOT ADD a in a FLOWER! I will add to bio-just send it to me .
When I add memorials , its with RESPECT and REMEMBRANCE . most I knew at one time or another and many that of those I do not know, ?.because their family may search for them one day and find them here, and be thankful someone took the time to add them and their info. and if I didn't-somebody else will~ in Another STATE . And I add as much info as possible. I extend every resource, they deserve to be remembered. More than just a NAME & DATE!

When I photograph a cemetery- IF I add a pre-need its Unintentional.

Only 1 cemetery in the county has an office that plot records are kept.
So we can't run over to one of the 376 cemeteries in the county and ask where GREAT GRAND AUNTIE is buried.
and tell me your exact relationship. We MIGHT be KIN FOLKS!!

JUST CAUSE you found it on ANCESTRY.COM or FAMILY SEARCh don't make it the TRUTH. TOOO many people change info on Family search.. I found my own grandma married to my brother on one. HELLO--research people- research. ღ THANK YOU to all Ya"ll great Folks out There that give us PHOTO CREDITS on Ancestry.. I sure do APPRECIATE ya'll! ENJOY
I fell in LOVE with Genealogy in 1980~ haven't stopped. Got info running out my ears!

We have for many years and compiled cemeteries. Tromped thru the weeds, grass, ticks, bugs, and gunk, cleaned, brushed, wiped - sweated and froze to take those beloved ancestral headstone photos. that very soon will be lost to the elements. Have published & up-dated 2 Cemetery books for Our county, which were additions since the first entire county cemetery was compiled in 1989. And a marriage book; years of, 1950-1999. * We helped decipher 1850, 60 70 & 80 census books back in the 1990's.

Virtual cemeteries are great for adding all your family members, cousins, aunts, friends, ect.

We photograph many stones. I usually add 3. one for location , one for
complete headstone, ( just so you know there is a spouse, and lastly but most important, a READABLE-close up of NAME-birth and death.

I have seen too many taken from 50 feet away that aren't readable. NO one wants to see a fuzzy/blurry/ can't read the names. Makes it hard for people who are actually looking for loved ones to know if its THEIR Uncle John Doe- so many have same names-just dates differ. There could be three in same cemetery. PLEASE PLEASE make sure the photo is NOT sideways..

THANK you._**_ღ

God Bless you Allღ every day!
