Dear Findagrave,

I am personally in the process of photographing this entire cemetery. In other words, I have visited this location several times. There are two cemeteries listed in Find A Grave, but in actuality there is only one cemetery. Also the description of Anshai Sgard (the correct name) says that "it is adjacent to Eagle Point. " It is not adjacent to any other cemetery. There is just one cemetery, Anshai Sfard, AKA Toledo Hebrew Cemetery.


This is the an incorrect name: Eagle Point Cemetery. There is no sign that says this.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSst=37&


This is the correct name for this cemetery: Anshai Sfard:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=134715630&CRid=2402917&

I am requesting for the fourth or fifth time that Eagle Point be combined with Anshai Sfard Cmetery (AKA as Toledo Hebrew Cemetery) to eliminate the constant confusion and possible duplication .

Thank you (hopefully) attending to this.

1. Please delete this cemetery:

Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hamblen County, TN:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...id=2356381&

It does not exist in Hamblen County.

2. Please delete this empty cemetery:

Mynatt (Thomas) Cemetery, Union County, TN:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...amp;df=all&

It is a duplicate of this Mynatt Cemetery:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSst=45&

Mynatt Cemetery already has “Thomas Mynatt Cemetery” as an AKA.

3. Please merge these two cemeteries under the name “Little Redeemed Church Cemetery”:

Little Redeemed Cemetery, Hamblen County, TN:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSsr=41&

and

Little Redeemed Church Cemetery, Hamblen County, TN:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...mp;CSsr=41&

Thank you!

There is no such cemetery in Ontario, CANADA.

This Cemetery is apparently in Ontario, California.

Please move it out of Canada.

Merge this empty Covey Corners Cemetery
with the correct cemetery Seventh Day Baptist Cemetery
It would be a shame to lose such a lovely photo of the cemetery. The AKA already exists.

Merge this duplicate Viets Family et al
with the correct Captain John Viets Cemetery
A request to merge the memorials was sent to Edit over a month ago. Perhaps merging the cemeteries first and then sending the edits will make it easier for Edit staff.

Add the address of Newgate Road, East Granby, 06026

Thanks!
