thank you for your good work. However, you have made a mistake. There are at least two villages called Heimersheim in Germany. The one in which several of my forefathers were born is near Alzey, and since 1972 is a part of the city of Alzey, in Kreis Alzey-Worms, Rheinland-Pfalz. You mistakenly changed the Kreis from Alzey-Worms to Category: Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, Rheinland-PfalzCategory: Ahrweiler (Kreis), Rheinland-Pfalz. I have changed it back to Alzey.

I appreciate you cleaning up the various creative ways that I and others are writing our Find A Grave links.
I had an efficiency idea to reduce the number of goof-up that lazy sloppy persons such as moi are making.
Could you consider pulling some strings to get a proper template example for a FAG link added on the right hand side of the Profile Editing Pages?
I see there really is space for such an model link in the "Formatting Tips" area. I bet this would be one of the most heavily used "Formatting Tips" if the template were there where people like me could just nab it.
And thank you for all your work, I see it is not without controversy. This is all a work in progress. We learn as we go.
Kindest regards to the bot that never sleeps.
