I am loving Find A Grave’s new “Edits” tab under Contributor Tools but I keep forgetting to check it! I went in this morning and there were five edits that I needed to look at.
They have now added the ability to suggest familial links which is nice. I am thinking that with this addition we won’t be getting any more emails other than those tied to requests and request fulfillments.
I checked my list of photo requests. I only have 17 open requests, not bad. The oldest request that is still on the list is from 15 July 2011 for Louisa (Baptiste) Chighizola who is buried in the Catholic Cemetery in Mobile, Alabama. There are 43 pending requests for this cemetery. So what’s the problem? I did a quick Google search and found that this particular cemetery covers over 150 acres. Oh my. This cemetery does have sexton records, however. Surely the sexton records can narrow the location of the grave for whoever goes out there to take the photo.
So, are there any blog readers in Mobile, Alabama that want to snap a photo of Louisa’s marker for me?
