As a Find A Grave member myself, it pains me to hear so many negative experiences from people. As with any community, it is unfair to make general statements about an entire group. I am aware that not every member shares the same level of respect, but I take pride in preserving history and people's stories. I have created memorials for my own family members as well as receiving transfers. But not everyone is willing to transfer memorials because some have been deleted after such work was put into them.
I enjoy assisting people looking for relatives or friends who may not live near the cemeteries I do. Too much fascinating history is at risk for being lost and my Find A Grave work is a way for me to blend my passion for genealogy and history. The 2 go hand in hand naturally. I resent being referred to as a hoarder or vulture or meanie as I've read in this forum. I am anything but, and again apologize for those who have had such encounters and dealings.
You can find me by that name on Find A Grave and Ancestry.com ~
Perhaps I can assist you and share a more positive
