The following cemeteries are both at the same location. The Cemetery and the Mausoleum Cemetery listed are at same location as one Cemetery Mausoleum should be part of the initial cemetery and should be joined as one

Hello:
The FindAGrave listing for the Salem Township Cemetery, Columbiana County, Ohio is a duplicate and incorrect listing. The FindAGrave site for Salem Township Cemetery:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=2054&
The correct name and FindAGrave listing for this cemetery is the Franklin Square Cemetery, Columbiana County, Ohio.
The FindAGrave site for the Franklin Square Cemetery:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...20Cemetery&
We have been working with all the previous Contributors to remove their duplicated Memorials, and that work is almost complete. The few that remain are pending to be corrected, but the time has come to yield all new Memorials to the Franklin Square Cemetery, so to avoid continued confusion with the incorrect Salem Township Cemetery.
If that is best done by somehow noting that Franklin Square Cemetery is AKA Salem Township Cemetery, that would fix the problem, just so that contributors can't keep posting their Memorials to the wrong cemetery and creating continued duplications?
Thank you for your help in this matter. Just trying to keep my local cemeteries more accurate for FindAGrave.

You added the official name of the cemetery at my request (much appreciated!), but it turned out to be too long and got cut off in the middle of the last word.

How about shortening it to Friedhof an der Dekanatspfarrkirche.
Then, perhaps in the description area, you could put the full name:
Friedhof an der Dekanatspfarrkirche Mariae Himmelfahrt.

(I'm in the process of editing photos now and will shortly send a photo for the cemetery page.) Thanks again!

Brittian/Brittain Cemetery -
The family cemetery was misspelled at it's creation. I contacted the person who created the cemetery and put up memorials/photographs for those buried at the location and he said he was unable to correct the spelling of the name. I have tried other venues through Find a Grave with no luck. The family name is spelled "Brittain". Along with just wanting the name spelled correctly, I am applying to the Daughters of the American Revolution for membership and would like to include the family cemetery in my application but do not want to confuse things with the last name being spelled one way and the family cemetery being spelled another way - can you help? I have many documents for William Brittain's (Find A Grave Memorial# 121762371) war service, land grants, county offices and so forth that show his name being spelled "Brittain" if you need to verify anything. I thank you in advance for any help/advice you might have in helping me correct the spelling of the cemetery name.

Brittain Family Cemetery
