I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.

It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

Walter Grant Penfield - Berlin, CT
Hello - First I must thank you for your contributions toward preserving our collective family histories. Your commitment is remarkable.

Walter Penfield was my 2nd great uncle (?). His sister, Susie Weed Penfield Hodgson was my great great grandmother. Walter had a fascinating life and you have captured details that we were previously unaware of. I'm thinking the details had to come from an interested family member. I am building a comprehensive family history and would be thrilled to know the person who provided this information to you and have an opportunity to share resources with them.

Many thanks for anything you can share with me as to the information source on Walter Penfield.

RE: 42600854
Thank you so much. This gentleman died in Trenton, Alachua, Florida and was my step great Grandfather. We were told he was buried in Trenton so I was surprised to find this headstone. Family said his 1st wife was notified of his passing but that she wasn't interested in attending his funeral or retrieving his remains. Yet, she filed for his Military pension. She may have eventually retrieved him and buried him in the family plot. He worked carpentering (as he put it) until he passed away. His death devastated my Great Grandmother. He went for a walk and was missing for quite some time. The sheriff found his body, he must have gotten lost in the woods and died of starvation. His death was ruled death by starvation from insanity. I'd like to know for sure where he is resting so that I can add my Great Grandmother to his findagrave record. It's such a tragic story and I hope to find resolution so he can be remembered with dignity.

RE: Arthur Hartley Jr
I was thinking the same as you, but just wanted to know how you felt. Let's keep both pictures!
Again thank you so much!!
I do have a concern about the duplicate memorials put up in January 2016. Haven't had a response yet unfortunately.

Hi,
I am unable to delete the old picture of the stone since it is your photo. We can leave it there if you want.

Hi,
Thank you, thank you for the reminder that my cousin's stone (#58340584) had been upgraded! His sister told me she had it done. I failed to correct the Find A Grave site. I have also finally added his bio. We will be celebrating his birth and his sister's (Jane)birth this month.
Again thank you for the reminder and the new picture!
