My WikiTree "Suggestions Report" pertaining to Find A Grave [closed]

+5 votes

I'm working on my WikiTree  "Suggestions"  and before I handle more of them pertaining to Find A Grave I wanted to know what others are doing.

1)  The suggestion that I enter the Find A Grave birth location onto my profile.   Most of these are unsourced on Find A Grave and contacting each individual Find A Grave manager seems daunting and would likely achieve about a 5% success rate (based on my past experiences).    I don't particularly want to put an unsourced birth location on the WikiTree profiles, effectively providing more credence to this unsourced fact.  How have others been handling this  "Suggestion"?

2)  The suggestion that I put a specific birth date onto my profiles, when the headstone only shows a year.    Same comment as above.  How have others been handling this  "Suggestion"?

3)  The suggestion that I put a specific death date onto my profiles when the headstone only shows a year.... This suggestion perhaps has more weight than the birth information  since there may be a death certificate involved.....  But how have others been handling this "Suggestion"?


I have a tendency to refer to Find A Grave memorials of other relatives on my profiles,  this has created well over 50  "Suggestions" but I'll just muddle through because I want to continue to make these references.

Anyway,  would love to hear your thoughts.
