Bio

I am a retired computer programmer.I became a contributor in 2017 to help my wife. I started as her/our photographer then Me and the puppy started roaming cemeteries with her in 2014. Wife has been a contributor since Nov 2008 - under a Past x's acct.

We are in the process of photographing cemeteries around our area. Many older stones will be lost to time and elements in the future.
ALL TRANSFERS..
Kindly reminder: refer to the HELP SECTION for Transfer Guidelines & state your relationship .
For Non-relative transfers-Memorial managers can decide if they would like to transfer or not. In any case seeing as they are not related, No , you would not have to transfer. This is Per the site adms.

We also maintain a farm & as we are busy with daily chores. My wife is currently mapping and cataloging burial locations in several county cemeteries & I help with that.. PATIENCE is expected and appreciated on edits and/or suggestions! I WILL Get them before 21 days! Thanks to the helpful volunteers who gave their time & dedication to this site. Many memorials were added by previous contributors & may have Wrong information . Many were fallen gravers memorials. . So be kind.. We are working to correct those. Easy to make mistakes~ no- one is perfect.
I Do make mistake, only human!
Up-dated on Dec 1, 2023.
December 1, 2023~If when asked for PROOF of edit, meaning (Where DID YOU GET THIS INFO-so just kindly send it to me through the edit suggestion feature or NOTES ) ~ this may delay the timely manner of an edit being ok'd)
if I have to contact you and can't or Don't answer a message; ; this will also delay the process!
I MAY DECLINE IF I cannot find info .
WITH NEW~ Veteran Status- PLEASE~ add Inscription on Stone TO correct Field, Gender and check all boxes.
Any suggestion for edit or link, I research before accepting. And YES , we have an ANCESTRY tree with MANY entries-starting with our Great-grand child and spiderwebbed from there to every direct ancestor , cousin, kin and on & on. We find many Ancestry trees have mistakes,so some Information found on a Public trees are Not always 100% correct. FYI- I DO NOT use FAMILY SEARCH for ANY Information. Too Many that add there are like -- " WELL I "THINK " THEY ARE my KIN- so I will ADD " .... do not recommend any numbers there! Fxyz 479 don't mean nothing to me.
Any links to any outside info sources will NOT be added in a bio. Per help section.

THANK You to all those who do send verification, with out me having to or go on a scavenger hunt! Saves us both valuable time! PLEASE spell check,
DOUBLE Check , I Ok your edits , then get told it's spelled wrong or dates are wrong.
Or the wrong number is in. That's on Your end, Not mine. My finger can't spell to well!

If you FIND an Obit & its is useful as a source-- add it to the BIO~ don't just TELL me where it IS! ) The NEW system for adding Bio & Notes is AWESOME.
PLEASE don't copy the SAME BIO & ; send it to me to add! I may add or may Not- Ok I may declined
I like the NOTE section- it is good for adding the source and IF there is already a Bio-- what CHANGES you'd like to add.
ALSO:
Social Security Indexes can be off.
Where they LAST LIVED is not necessary where they passed . I live in a rural area. Nearest city P. O. is 10 miles away.
Death certificates are good for date and location of death , but some burials location are Not correct, for what ever reasons.
Names changed many For a cemetery.ect. not everyone calls them the same, especially rural family cemeteries.
Birth certificate are great for date of birth, location, and parents.- BUT they can also be WRONG! Remember many generations back could not read or write.
Headstones can be placed decades later by descendants and errors are made.
I ADD the dates inscribed on a stone, not from Other sources , as in birth , death , ect. Have had this done this in past, changed and had another contributor WANT to change it back. So STONE DATES STAND.
DO NOT use any photo's that "I TOOK & added " and use them added ~Back on memorials as your own taken~! Help section on adding photo's says if "you did not take the photo-do not add"! meaning ~If I took it -I added it.

A photo request is to be fulfilled by the a photo (of the headstone) ~ taken BY a contributor/member~ NOT a copied, screenshot, or taken(in any manner) from another memorial's page, or any other source found on the internet! Not a Map or a photo of yourself. AND when NON Headstone Photos~ these are added- PLEASE- click the OTHER Box!
............................
( memorials under my care & management are asked to be transferred to my SPOUSE ~ P. C. J. Turner , when I can no longer care & maintain them-as they will be well cared for) # 48910295 .
