Do you want to copy one of my pictures for not-for-profit personal use / family tree / etc..... You have permission to do so AS LONG AS you give credit back to me. You can do something like:

[photo taken by] -- or --
[photo taken by]

PLEASE NOTE: It is against Find A Grave rules (and Copyright LAW) to copy pictures which are not taken by you. Just because something is on the Internet DOES NOT mean it is free, or without copyright. EVERY picture I have ever taken is, and will always be copyrighted to me (even if it does not have a mark on the photo). Just because I post a picture DOES NOT mean I'm giving my legal rights to my photo's.


PLEASE go to that memorial and hit "EDIT" in the upper right and enter the information there.

For corrections or additions - Please give source - and if possible, write it how you would like it in the memorial (so I can quickly copy-n-paste)

For transfers - Again, go through edit link - and let me know how you are related (ex. "This is my great grandfathers brother") should work.

**** MORE ABOUT ME *****

I live in the East Central Illinois area (around Danville, IL). A project I started a few years back was to get pictures of EVERY headstone in EVERY cemetery in Vermilion County Illinois. I've done that, and have got pictures of EVERY headstone in most of the cemeteries in Edgar, Champaign, and Iroquois counties in Illinois - along with Vermillion and Warren counties in Indiana. Many posted on my personal website:

* all photo's taken by me are copyrighted (even if there is not a on the photo) Just because it is on the internet, or I fulfill a photo request DOES NOT change that the picture is still copyrighted to me.

sheldon cemetery
I have an obit that states that John Frances Bonnett was buried in Sheldon, Illinois cemetery in 1938. His name is supposed to be on a cross per what I have heard. He died at Kankakee state hospital in 1938. He was my great,great grandfather. I would very much like to have a photo of this grave. His daughter, Louisa Sharp is buried in ths cemetery, along with other family members. I would be most grateful for your help.

First, thank you for all your efforts to locate and photo the grave sites of relatives for Find-a-Grave posting. I just have one request/suggestion...If the cemetery is a small or private one could you add the GPS location so family members could visit.

George Y. Taylor # 24242424
Hi, On George Y. Taylor # 24242424 and Maude Taylor # 24242445, you posted a group picture of 5 headstones. You mentioned on both memorials that the large middle one was Maude Taylor and the one next to her on the right was her husband George Taylor. I can not make out the other names on the picture. I was wondering if you know the other names? I believe the others are their children, but want to make sure. They had two children who died young, Carl in 1905 & Charlotte in 1901. Their other children were Roy, George, John and another unknown girl.
If you know the other names it would be very helpful.
Thank you,
