|Bio and Links|
| The photos and information I've found here helped me add over 100 names to my family tree. I hope to make similar contributions which may help others in their own quests, as so many others have helped me.|
I am, unfortunately, done with Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hanover, PA. The memorial collectors have won, courtesy of the new photo upload and transcription tool.
I refuse to waste entire days transcribing information from every stone in an entire section, some of them barely legible, then researching the family relationships just to have someone else breeze through it in an hour then create hundreds upon hundreds of bare bones "memorials" with no burial location information, no family links, no inscription information and no additional information of any kind, all while ignoring those graves with stones that can't be read from the photos they hurriedly took.
Almost 4,000 of these junk memorials have been created in 3 months, just from this cemetery. They are people, with family who may want to know a little something about them, they are not numbers. If this is what findagrave is becoming, count me out.
Adding Obituaries to Memorials
Photo Submission General Rules
I do not scour the internet for obituaries 24/7 nor do I pore over historical records looking for names to add to my "collection". Quality trumps quantity.
The overwhelming majority of my memorials are created from information I interpret to the best of my ability from grave markers. Yes, I visit the grave site, in person. I often spend time researching how people in the same plot were related. However, I will err, if you spot an error let me know the what and why so I can correct it.
A word about photos:
I require the simple courtesy of attribution (for example, "Photo by Jeff Schneider" and a link to the F-A-G memorial page) when using my photos. I do send DMCA takedown orders forcing sites to remove unattributed photos.
Attribute it or lose it.

No. I do not.
|M. Aumen||Sr. M. Antoinette Smith|
I located an obituary for Sr. Mary Antoinette Smith who passed at St. Joseph's Convent, McSherrystown. The names of her parents are listed in the notice, as well as an exact date of death. The age approximates her birth around my supplied date, obtained from the Conewago Chapel baptismal records with her birth name of Rose Mary.
A copy of the obituary has been posted to the page as documentation of parents and death date, which can be removed upon your request.
Thank you for your assistance, I appreciate your desire for accuracy.
