Many of us are aware of the new Find A Grave website
Pretty nice, up to date website. Here is the old one.
Lot of clicking around to get some where.
The New website you can search from from the landing page. That’s great news.
Here is a view of a Memorial.
Word of caution: be careful if you copy and paste that Cemetery Name. It may not come out as you might expect. At least that is my experience.
But what I am going to miss the most is this.
That is the same memorial. What I am going to miss are 1) the ability to quickly see the family members and relationships. More compact. and 2) the ability to Hi-Lite, Copy and Paste from the Name of the memorial down to the Contributor information. I paste that into my genealogy database. And that Cemetery Name, and Location, Copy and Paste very easily. I think I will miss that THE MOST.
…. but the good news is ….
The new Source Citation.
For me, that is the Full Reference Note.
I know, you can’t read it, but let me Copy and Paste that here
Find A Grave, database and images (https://www.findagrave.com : accessed 21 November 2017), memorial page for Henry Russell Worthington, Jr (1916–2006), Find A Grave Memorial no. 49480185, citing Grace Episcopal Memorial Gardens, Haddonfield, Camden County, New Jersey, USA ; Maintained by Russ Worthington (contributor 47099064) .
In a discussion about that citation, one observer claimed that the Reference note, was Citing the Cemetery. As I read this Citation, it is Citing the Find A Grave Memorial on the Website, with details ABOUT the Cemetery.
If I were to find this citation, I know that it came from the Find A Grave website, when it was accessed. What I expect to see when I get there, is a Database that has Images. The person of interest with the YYYY – YYYY in case there were two people with the same name.
Knowing a little about this website, I KNOW I can search for that Memorial Number (sorry it is whited out here). OR, there is a “bread crumb” that would also get me there. The County, State, County, Town, and Cemetery Name. And, of course, who is maintaining that memorial with contact Information.
Again, my understanding of the “citing” piece of the Reference Note is the Memorial, not the Cemetery. The Cemetery does not provide any information, the Memorial does.
