Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie|

Memorial no. 101496947 should be Doris Bell Lander. The name across the bottom is Landers, but the S must have been a mistake. She might have been the child of Swan and Hulda Lander - we're not sure. They lived in Elsmore. Swan's mother, Mary Lander, died in Savonburg in 1913. Swan's sister, my great-great-grandmother, Ingeburg Woodruff, used to always decorate this grave, and we've continued leaving flowers. The flowers in this photo were left by my father, who is the son of Ingeburg's daughter, Marguerite Woodruff, and her husband.

My guess would be yes. The cemetery records have her as Lurenia & "DOD" (often aka burial date) is July 2, 1955. Why don't you leave that memorial & just direct people to this one (#141058992). If it's ok with you, I will add the obituary to this one as well & indicate the error in the publishment? Kim

Thelma L. Bennett is my grandma, and the death year for her is wrong on your page. Could you please change it to 1983? It is hard to see the year in the picture you have posted (which is why it looks like 1988).
Would it be possible to transfer her to me? Her parents and grandparents are all buried where I live. I'd like to update her file with their information as well.
Thanks for all your hard work!

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?
Thank you for the transfer of Mary. I have added to her memorial since she was a member of my Carmean family. I appreciate your kindness of the transfer.
