|Bio and Links|
My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001. |
Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!
I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.
I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate "© 2001-2013 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.
This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.
I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.
ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]
PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.
Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

Thank you for transfering my Uncle Bobs memorial.
|Erin||RE: Wrong links|
The correct parents are Leah (Caywood) and William Ward. I have that Leah was buried in Caywood Cemetery in Hendricks County but there isn't a findthegrave post for it. Sooo...nothing to link to. I believe William Ward died much earlier and out of state.
Thanks so much!

Hey there. I just wanted to let you know that for the memorial #46015788 there are incorrect family links. Margaret's parents were William and Leah (Caywood) Ward. I can show you the death certificate copy if you'd prefer to see if before you change it. Thanks!

|Penny||How to take over a Memorial?|
You have a picture of my Grandfather Ben McFarland, From Reynolds Cemetery in Montcalm Co. Michigan...listed from a year ago.. you probably have my mother too as she is laid to rest right next to him, but because she has a different last name you didn't know or haven't linked them. I would like to know how I can take over this project from you as I have pictures and info on both... and because that Cemetery is full of my other relatives as well. I too had these pictures of the stones on find a grave As I took them just after I put the white rock around both of the stones. But it appears my pictures were deleted/removed when Find-a-Grave switched over to the new way of getting people to pay in order to remove the adds from the page. Please let me know if and how this is possible.
Thank you for Relisting my Grandfather.

Many thanks for the recent 3 transfers to me. I appreciate your willingness to help me round up family members from lines that end because they had no descendants.
