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.

Anna and Joseph Nespor photo Thank you SO MUCH for adding the headstone photo to Anna's and Joseph's memorials (Find A Grave# 113209174 and 113209146! They are the parents of my children's paternal grandmother Blanche. Blanche was only 12 years old when her mother died from breast cancer, her father died just a few years later leaving the oldest sister to finish raising Blanche & her younger sister. We only recently learned where they were buried, they have been hard people to find, we still haven't figured out where their parents are. We were thrilled to see the picture, especially with the flowers which show that someone else still cares. Thank you for everything you do!
