Okay, I received transfers of these memorials per Bill Bodkin's advice.
Now, how do I get your photo removed and replaced with one that's legible?

Jim and Tami,

Allen,
I am a shooter of graves. I go to a cemetery and shoot 5-10 pics a minute. The pictures are then submitted to Find A Grave by my volunteers.
I have about 300 thousand pictures and 75 volunteers,feverishly entering them. But they are constantly losing ground and I am growing my bank of pictures. Yesterday I noticed that you requested a new pic at Union Dale in Pittsburgh (where I take most of my pics).
It was not as clear as you would like it to be.

My suggestion would be to request a transfer of the memorial and then you could manage it.

I tell my volunteers that my pix are for primarily for info and if the pic is not legible not to put it in/ but if its close put it in because it identifies the size and shape of the stone for those looking to get a better picture.

BTW
you can see that the two volunteers who entered your memorials had two different takes on the shot.

--So, Jim and Tami, please delete your photo and I'll request another.
Thanks, Allen

Thank you for the photo of his gravestone. I am not related but someone must have told me he wasn't buried there - I won't move a person unless they cannot be found in the cemetery. So thanks again - your efforts are appreciated.

Thank you for the photo, but I can't make out the inscription. Could you try at another time of day to get better light?

RE: Incorrect Posting
Two of the three pictures are no longer there. There is still one posted by "Nareen, et al (#46613568)" There had been two by her... I just didn't know who to contact about it.. Thank you for taking the time to look. It was just weird to see...

Incorrect Posting
I have noticed that a picture of Goodwell Cemetery, credited to you has been posted to Evergreen Cemetery, 519 Greenland Drive, Murfreesboro (Rutherford Co.) TN. Also two other pictures of this same Goodwell Cem. are posted by Nareen, et al. She has closed her messaging down, but would appreciate someone correcting this.

Thank you,

Hi Tami,

Thanks very much for the photo of the headstone for Tobias Dirks.

It always makes the memorial mean so much more.
