Bio and Links
I am 78 and have been doing research for 20 years.
I started my genealogy search 20+ years ago.
I am happy with my in-law's side going back to 1860s in Germany. I hit a brick wall on my side in Italy.
The surnames I am searching are Byers, Sellmeyer, Dahmus, Waechter, Di Matteo, Di Capua.
Many of my memorials are not family. I just take extra pics while visiting a cemetery. If they are relatives of yours feel free to ask for a transfer.
If you know a maiden name, relationship connection, correction or addition for any of my memorials please use the edit tab to let me know! Thanks :-)
If I've added a duplicate pic to a memorial of yours and you would like the space for personal photos just let me know and I'll delete mine. No hurt feelings ;-)

I would like to ask permission to use your photo for my family history and on I would, of course, credit you with the photo. I would also like to ask for a transfer. He is my great grand uncle.

Thank you for the work you do, it is appreciated.

RE: Obits on FAG
Giving credit is not sufficient.

Breaking the Find A Grave rules

I see you continue to copy obituaries to F-A-G.

Here is the rule, verbatim, for your reference.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.

If you continue to break this rule flagrantly, I will report you to the F-A-G administration. I'm sorry to do this, but I have asked you very nicely before; and you have not changed your practice of publishing things that do not belong to you.

Hello Happy Di,
Paul Duncan is my father, and I would be most appreciative if you would transfer his memorial to me. Thank you for your consideration.
