Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hope you all enjoy the memorials I've created and if any of these people are related to you, please don't hesitate to ask me to transfer them to you. I've also provided links wherever possible to spouses and/or other family members.

Regarding photos -- Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo. See FindAGrave FAQs for more information.

...I only ask that you give me credit for my work. This statement applies to using my photos on OTHER websites -- not FindAgrave. You cannot copy my photos to put on a duplicated memorial on FindAGrave. Apparently, this needs to be specified because some people try to find loopholes everywhere. Courtesy and common sense should guide you but if you aren't sure, you can ask me.

If you want to attach a memorial to your family tree on Ancestry, FindAGrave is listed as a source under the birth, marriage, death section. You may have to look for it, but if it's on this website, then within a short time after adding it, it will be on Ancestry, too. If you must put the photo on your tree, please add, "Photo compliments of VickiO of FindAGrave", with a link to this page.

I do want to thank all those people out there who have thanked me for my photos and memorials, who have politely asked for transfers and permission to use my photos and those who have brought me to tears by telling me the back story behind finding a memorial for a cherished relative or friend on FindAGrave because of my work. I do this for those people.

Sarah VanGieson Post VanWinkle
I actually just noticed that I think you have two memorials for my 3rd great aunt Sarah from my last message. Memorial# 69243038 (under Sarah VanGieson) and Memorial# 120408267 (under Sarah VanWinkle.) I believe it is one in the same person. The grave stone photos look the same. It looks like Sarah was buried with her parents, the Mary and John VanGieson, correct? That is a photo of the side of their stone, right?

Jacob Post Memorial# 12298232
Hi Vicki, Just a note, my 3rd great uncle Jacob Post married my 3rd great aunt Sarah Van Geison, on 25 Jan 1859, when he was age 27. But she isn't the "Mrs. Sarah Post" whose headstone is next to Jacob's. My Sarah was married to Jacob until he died in 1863 in the civil war, and there is a widow's pension record to show that, with her maiden name and his regiment, etc. My aunt Sarah, then went on to marry Simon Peter Van Winkle in 1869. She was buried with the Van Winkles Memorial# 120408267, which you also kindly photographed 🙂) So I wonder who is this Mrs. Sarah Post next to Jacob that you included in the photographs? I don't know yet, but I will try to figure it out. 1) She was 23 years older than Jacob, born in 1808, so maybe his mother or his aunt. 2) I found a Sarah Post, widow, of this age in the 1870/1880 censuses but do not know who her husband was or why she isn't buried with him. Just thought I'd pass along the note. Thanks so much for the photos!
