Many of my & other family members photos I uploaded to Find A Grave are cropping up in individuals family trees on Ancestry and other programs on the web. No mention of where or how they got them let alone who they belong to.
DO NOT download & re- post any of my photos anywhere. Period. If you have done this then Remove them immediately. These photos do not belong to you.
Follow Find A Grave guidelines prior to requesting memorial transfers. NO EXCEPTIONS
I had one person who in late 2014 who within a month's time send me over 650 SAC's. This wannabe FAG cop went through my entire file looking for any and every thing they THOUGHT might be wrong including names engraved on markers. They fired off SAC's as fast as they possible could with no knowledge whatsoever of these people. In the end & after several days with many research hours there were only a handful of meaningfully edits
Find A Grave offered little to no help. Still today they condone people sending these SACS. Anyone with malice could simply destroy thousands of memorials in a short period of time. Simply, if the contributor does not see the SAC or act on it quickly Find A Grave, now Ancestry, will force the edit reghardless even if wrong.
Don't come at me & start quoting the rules on how memorials are suppose to be. My work on this web site is exactly as i want it. I could care less what you think or want it to be!!
If you don't like what i have done here simply change the channel!.
On the other hand, for those decent contributors out there and yes there are still a few left, if you have info to add to the bios or family links then by all means let me know.
This project started out as a blessing for me by preserving memories of our loved ones.
And here we go again !

You can threaten all you want. If my memorial is deleted I will add it back with your messages on the memorial. I will also leave your message on my page for Ancestry to review. You have pretty well shown why you disabled your message page. Nothing else needs to be said

Barbara I WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES delete this memorial plain and simple. Another contributor had the decency to send me a SAC with the obit instead of throwing the freaking rules in my face. You need to delete the duplicate
Find A Grave contributor Barbara Howard Pointer has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Vina Brantley. Link to memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=37368213 Link to contributor profile: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47370314 Email address of contributor: email@example.com
Their suggestion: ------------------------- This is a duplicate of # 160680648 which was created AFTER death. It is against Find-A-Grave policy to create a Memorial for someone before death, unless it is for yourself. Please Merge or delete.
If you could redo James Matthew Honeycutt to James Madison "Matt" Honeycutt I would appreciate it. But the parents you have are not right. His mother was Elizabeth Honeycutt 1809-1897. Still don't know who his father was. Thank you for everything you do to help researcher.
Are you kin to Barbara E (Logan) Harrell? I have a photo that I believe is of her when she was a teenager. She is sitting up on a horse. The back of the photo says, "Barbara Logan - New Tazewell, Tenn". I acquired it at an antique store in downtown Knoxville, TN this past weekend.
Wrong info Don, I do not think you are rude or unjust in your bio. I have had other contributors send info that was wrong also and throw a fit because I did not "fix" it. One was just the burial plot/sec number...
I lost some memorials because they INSISTED these people where in another cemetery since they were listed there on another site- Guess what?? The person who added them to the other site, admitted to making a mistake - so after all that (I had deleted them) I lost them! OH - I got three back! I will never delete any again until I have proof.
Then you have some who never do the edits, which bugs me.... I spend a lot of time looking and trying to connect family only so they will NOT be connected...????
But thank goodness there are a lot of people who are on here and they work very hard to have correct information, even welcome the edits....
Duplicate I did not threaten you by saying I would let FG handle this matter. I will be sure also, to keep a copy of your message to me showing that you not only become nasty with people who request a simple action, but that you refuse to abide by FG rules. You can keep on resubmitting, and I will do the same. My lack of a bio s none of your business.
