|Bio and Links|
Most of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part |
of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's. I transfer only within the four-generation Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave.
I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record
and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration
of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the
main mission,then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can
leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.
Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.
Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

Hi - just wanted to share with you that I somehow missed a string of corrections that you sent to me in February of this year about some duplicate additions I made to Piney Creek Methodist Church Cemetery. I have no problem in the world removing them - but I just wanted to point out that I have tombstone photos and the org.'s do not. I no longer have those photo's - so what will you have me do?
|Carolyn Wheeler||Benjamin James Buckner|
I am not sure if this is coincidence or not but I found a sheet with Buckner information on it, and an email address, then i received a message from you on Find A Grave...I hope you will respond.
I've asked the owner of the other memorial to move their memorial and update - I'll delete mine once they are done.
Thank you for the notice of the duplicate

I have deleted the record you suggested and sent a SAC to the other contributor to correct the spelling of the name so it will come up as it should.
|Mary E. Warner||Re problem with non-appearing photos|
Karyn, thanks for letting me know that Find A Grave is aware of the problem.
|MJ Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ||Ray Blankenship|
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. All corrected now. :-)

|ray waldrop||Luther Cleo Gantt|
Karyn, I did not realize this until I went to the site you suggested and saw his picture, but, I worked with Luther at U.S.P.S. years ago.
|JMB||RE: Kenneth Corbin.|
I appreciate your information and have sent the gentleman a message as to proper protocol on FindAGrave. I doubt he will bother to do anything though but at least I tried. Again, thanks.

There is no easy answer or solution to this problem. I used to just delete mine but am getting tired of that. I'll just leave mine. Thanks for the heads up.
