Remember, I will still be here
As long as you hold me in your memory
Remember me.
~~Josh Groban~~

Our findagrave activity stemmed from my love of genealogy, photography and old gravestones, strengthened when we saw the damage one year of weather does to an older stone that cannot stand the test of time well. We believe everyone deserves to be remembered, beyond plain, cold statistics, and document as much as we are able, especially as we travel. This is a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy. People with kind, sincere words make my day.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. Cooperation is the entire point of this site. I now understand why people leave Findagrave. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates, not documenting cemeteries any more. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Nine times out of ten, they have already been added.

** PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.'

**If you will not honor an update sent in by another volunteer, you are doing the memorial, AND the hard work of the volunteers a real injustice, not to mention the Findagrave admins who now have to do YOUR WORK. If you don't want to do updates, give your memorials to someone who will, PLEASE.

**Do not use my photos without permission, and ask BEFORE you use them. Simple, reasonable. And, if your pictures are crooked, poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. Sorry. Please have the respect to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, general inquiries ANY memorial. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

RE: Thank you
For the kind words, you made my day ! I try very hard to make memorials as complete and correct as I can and to work well with others, most people are great to work with which makes the few stinkers a bit more tolerable. Thanks for all you do as well, if we all work together it makes life so much easier and fun ! Eileen

photo of Mountain Shadow Cemetery
I am a niece of Albert and Alice Holman and see that your photo of the entrance to Mountain Shadow Cemetery in Sonora, CA is on their memorial page. May I please have your permission to use it in my family tree? I would greatly appreciate it.

Andrew Windsor Photo
Dear Anne Shurtleff Stevens: Thanks for pointing out the "wrong" photo I posted on Andrew Windsor's Memorial. I only had good intentions with the posting. This photo pulls up when you "google" his name, so I thought it was truly his photo. After more research, I was not able to find a "real" picture of him or even an old rendering of the Holy Trinity Priory Church, so I guess it will remain empty. Sincerely, Dale Lane

124th New York State Volunteers memorial
Hello: In the decline, I provided my reasons and stated that I would add the info you provided to the text, which I did when I saw your token. I also asked if you had any location detail for the other memorial that the 124th has at Gettysburg. Perhaps none of this information was forwarded to you. Thanks for your help.

You once told me if someone removed my flowers to let you know. They've done it again! Most of my flowers are from user uploads. Why is this being done. I would not even had known this but I went to put my favorite flower on a memorial. It was not there. Advice?
