You may use any of the information I have added to Find-A-Grave, including photographs. You may use them in your family tree records or you may add them to Ancestry.com, etc. There is no need to ask for permission as I am delighted that you found it valuable to your research.
Corrections and suggestions are gratefully accepted.
You are encouraged to request transfers from me, especially if you have more information to add to the memorial. The only exception is if the person memorialized is in my family tree, or was a close friend of mine. The easiest way to facilitate a transfer is to use the edit tab on the memorial ("Suggest any other correction or addition") to make your request. Please donít forget to provide your Find-A-Grave member number. It is at the top of your profile page. Due to time factors, it might take awhile, but all requests will be carefully considered and you will receive a response.
Find-A-Grave has been extremely helpful to me. I hope my contributions will be just as beneficial to anyone searching for more information about their family.
Thank you for your kindness! I appreciate your suggestions, I'll look into them asap. I didn't know about the RAOK, what a wonderful group! I'm amazed at all the time you took to help me, I'll let you know. :) Darla
RE: Ruth Galen Nepom, 121719093 Hi Jan, I'm not related to these families, and I'm not Jewish. Yesterday was the first time I've been to the Shaarie Torah Cemetery, and was there just to find and photo a marker for a friend. I've transferred all three memorials, Ruth Galen Nepom and her parents, Samuel and Shifka Director back to you. I did place the marker photo I did to Ruth's memorial page. I'll try to find the markers for Ruth's parents, and if I find a marker, I'll place the photo on their memorial pages.
Ruth Galen Nepom, 121719093 Hello Jan, I was at the Shaarie Torah Cemetery yesterday taking a photo of the Shlaifer family marker. Behind that one was the marker GALEN marker. On it were two names: Harry Isaac Galen, 1888 - 1952, and his wife, listed as Ruth Nepom GALEN, Dec 5, 1901 - Mar. 9, 1981. When I got home, I checked Find A Grave for memorial pages for Harry and Ruth. I didn't find one for Harry, but did for Ruth listed as Ruth Galen Nepom, same birth and death dates. I created a memorial page for Harry and placed my photo on his page, 156839359. The location for him was Block C, Section C, Plot 78. If you would like me to post the same photo on Ruth's memorial page, please let me know. Ruth probably married again after Harry died.
