You have taken some pictures of the markers of Ernst and Christina Reinbold and I was wondering if I could have your permission to copy those for my family tree-I appreciate your taking the great photos.

Leaving Find A Grave
I had no idea that Find A Grave sold to a "for profit" site. I'm sad to hear that. Thank you for all the wonderful things you have done, and the many people you helped.
Sorry to see you go.

Thank you, and replacement memorial for Thomas Oplanski
Gwyn,

I am sorry that you are no longer involved with Find A Grave, and that your memorials are being deleted, whether by you or by the site. Your contributions to Find A Grave are much appreciated! Their loss will impact many families who would benefit from access to them. I am also sorry that other members have not treated you respectfully. We all try to do our best, whether others realize it or not. One of the reasons that I enjoy maintaining the memorials of family members, is because I like being able to correct my own mistakes, and refine the bios as I get more or better information. Since you have said that your memorials are being deleted, and that you don't mind people using your photographs, I have added my own memorial for Thomas Oplanski at Liberty Cemetery in Minersville PA. It was important to me to give you credit for the original memorial and for the grave stone photograph, which I did. I hope that you don't mind. Thank you again for making the trip to a difficult to reach cemetery and taking the photograph so that we would be able to see his grave. I wish you all the best, health-wise, and genealogy-wise. -Janet

Taking down memorials & photos
I have heard you are taking down all your memorials and photos. I don't know if you manage any of my relatives or not, but I would very sad to see the grave photos go down the tubes because I have not down loaded to my own computer and they are so valuable to me. You should somehow let people know what you are doing so they can save their relatives' info. I understand your feelings; I was upset when I learned about Ancestry's purchase as well, but then I remember that I was doing this not just for me, but for the nice people in the genealogy community. This is why I do photo requests as well. Diane Gravlee

Picture of tombstone
Hi Gwyn,
May I use your picture of the tombstone for Michelo Fanzo, Find A Grave Memorial# 86010481, located at Saint Michaels Cemetery in Bethlehem, PA? I would be using it only for genealogy purposes and can't get to PA to take the picture since I live in Austin.
Can't wait to hear from you! And thanks so much for all the pics you have taken. I am trying to pay it forward also by taken tombstone pictures whenever I am in a cemetery. I enjoy the thrill of the hunt!
Take care,
Trisha

I wanted to thank you for creating the below FindAGrave memorials.

The following memorials are my maternal relatives and it would be my pleasure to maintain these memorials; if you are interested in transferring management to me.

Gottlieb Schweitzer - 3rd Great Grandfather - Memorial #21810943

Josephine Schweitzer - 3rd Great Grandmother - Memorial #21810927

Let me know if they are relatives of yours and if you prefer not to transfer. I have some information that can be updated on the memorials.

Please let me know if you require additional information.

Thank you for your consideration,

Thank you! Thomas Oplanski grave stone photo
Hi, Gwyn
I want to thank you for taking the picture of the grave stone for Thomas Oplanski (Memorial# 111231019) at Liberty Cemetery. I have been unable to locate information on his military service despite knowing he served in WWI and having photos of him in his uniform, so it was wonderful to see that his stone had that information!! THANK YOU!! I had also read that Liberty cemetery was difficult to navigate, so thank you for making the effort. We really appreciate it!
All the best,
Janet
