Thanks, Gina, I am always very happy to help because it means so much to me when I make requests for myself. Hopefully, friends or family of this wonderful lady will see this somewhere down the road. Anything I can do to help anytime, just let me know! Have a great week-end.

"I don't ask a deceased individual's family member if I can photograph their loved one's grave so I don't expect them to ask my permission to use the photo on another website."
I truly enjoy you and Sonia's philosophy of SHARING what we have found. As noted many here on
F A G are self appointed photo nazis... As long as no one is making$$ off another's work I have no problem with sharing.

Hi there Gina.
Well, that is a new one on me. I have always sent in my requests for something unusual through "Info" at FindAGrave. I seem to get better results that way. But, that isn't to say a couple of times I have repeated my request through info. I think there are several different folks that handle the info line and "Ya havta git de rite un" if you know what I mean.
A Very "Merry Christmas" to you and all yours, Bud.

Gina, I really appreciate your comments about "Aunt Boyd" and I'm glad you got to meet her too.. lol. I would love to add all the information about the photo, but there is no one left to ask! That's why I'm posting bios on family and those I knew because I will be the only one to do it now...I don't even know who or where Aunt Boyd's descendants are. Thank you to for your contributions and I appreciate the suggestions. David Land You had only ONE friend! I'll be your friend too!

|Sonia Sanchez||Thank You|
Just want to let you know that I feel the same way you do about the memorials on Find A Grave. Too many contributors have become a little callous in their handling of transfer requests,or the use of the pictures they take of grave markers. I, like you, don't mind if family members use any picture I upload to this website for their own purposes. After all this is a public domain. I don't ask a deceased individual's family member if I can photograph their loved one's grave so I don't expect them to ask my permission to use the photo on another website. If they want to use them they should without any questions asked. Thank you for all you do!

|rhondajo||Sallie Humphries Joiner|
Hi, just want to thank you so much for all of the info you sent for her. Most of it I did have. The John and Amanda Humphries born in the early 1800s are apparently not her parents, as a descendant has gone through all of her GA Humphries data and there is no Sarah/Sallie her age. One clue you have is that her father was born in AL. I'll have to check out the AL Humphries a little closer. Thanks again!

|Bud||Information for memorial.|
Hi and Good Morning Gina.
I have seen several nasty posts to people that put info in flowers, so I would stay away from that. Also, I do not think it really gets passed on after three more flowers are put on and it is out of sight.
What I would do again is have the memorial transferred to yourself and add the info. Just write a short not to Find A Grave info and tell them you have tried to communicate for the past month to the originator of the memorial but that member is now deceased. Then, add the info and if you do not want to be responsible for that memorial just transfer it back to the originator or keep it and hope someone asks for it. If someone has added links you might find someone there that would like it.
Best regards to you and all yours, Bud.

|John Hinks||RE: Michael H Lee|
I have also had a problem with Find A Grave. When I input new memorials by spreadsheet it adds 1 day and 4 years to the dates - consistantly.
Oh well, I just get to recheck after it has been "sucessful".
Keep up your good work and thanks for helping keep the dattabase growing!

|In Memory Of Nannie||RE: Photos|
Feel free to use any tombstone photo I have taken of your ancestors as you see fit. I've benefitted from find-a-grave and just trying to help in what small way I can. You can give credit by listing the photo as taken by mysticshore or you can visit my Nannie's memorial on find-a-grave and drop her a flower, a poem, a bible verse, or just a reminder that her memory lasts. Her memorial number is 77576048
I'll gladly transfer any non-family memorials to you.
i have essential tremor, so some of my photos turn out poorly. if you need me to try to get a better photo, just let me know.

I do not know what SMSF means. I checked with a co-worker who records gravestone markers as part of her job and she does not know. I also could not find a reference to it on the Internet. Sorry I wasn't more help!

Appreciate you efforts Sha. One can only do the best one can do, sometimes the burials are lost in time and the people slowly forgotten. At least they will be remembered in my family tree.

|Bud||RE: Memorial #90143406|
Wow, that is one fantastic memorial for sure.
I saw one small error in the date of his death of '1974' that you might like to correct in the last sentence of the memorial.
There is a memorial erected in his honor in Grantsville, Maryland, the site of the crash. A stone cross with the inscription "In Loving Memory of Major Robert E Townley, Strategic Air Command, May 3 1921, Jan 13, 1974.
Best regards, Bud

|Bud||RE: Age of Cemetery|
Also known as: Old Shadowlawn Cemetery
This is my guess and if you look at the map it shows the old Shadowlawn Cemetery in the middle, but the oldest cemetery I would think is the one across the street called Old Lawrenceville City Cemetery.
Hope this helps. Bud

When you put photos on Find A Grave you have a choice of "grave", "person", "family" or "other". So, when you put a personal photo on you should label it as 'Person' and it will always remain at the top, taking precedence over grave markers and such.
Added by Bud on Jun 24, 2012 6:50 PM
No problem, I made the duplicate of it by mistake, so I just deleted it.
You are doing a marvelous job here. Wow. Way ahead of me on the narrative and links.
So, The "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud.
