This is a great way to show your support and appreciation for the information already on Find A Grave. Get out and volunteer to take some photos's. Photo volunteering has helped me find, as a new member, different ideas on how to search for my own elusive ancestors. |
I am currently researching the Dumas, McEntyre, Layfield, Hathcock & Autrey name from St Clair, County Alabama.
The Hathcock line is also from Cullmann
Found recently are McEntyre's in Gordon County & Habersham County, Ga and Etowah County Al .. The McEntyre's were also in Rutherford County N.C.
The Dumas family in Hill County, Texas are brother's and sister's of William Andrew Dumas. I see over and over again Will is missing from Ancestry.com family trees.
In Alabama , the Spinks of Hokes Bluff are of interest.
If photo's and/or any information are not correct please let me know. However, I will work only on requested photo's.
Please add any nicknames, maiden names, or if they had a military marker. Some of the larger cemeteries are without any records and any added information is always helpful. If you do not add information to the request it may not appear on the list when we search. It will only show on the main page and if my wi-fi does not work, I cannot see the main page at the cemetery.
Any transfer requested is available unless it is in my family. I would also like to know the connection. This is just to make sure you are not
a commercial entity.
On my managed memorials, please no recent death certificates attached or word for word obits as it could unknowingly violate privacy laws.
Please acknowledge all the volunteers with each request. If you want the entire plot ask for it. It saves resources and time and gives credit where credit is due. Some researcher's only want the one photo. It's a fantastic volunteer system to have as a resource.
Shame and double shame to the number hoarders who do not transfer.You know who you are. There is a higher power than your ego. I have people who will not transfer because they do not want their work to be incomplete. Where are their own ancestors?
My goal is not thousands of records. If in the future someones relative wants to look up a record. I would want them to see correct information. The information from photo's to be readable. Links to correct family members and at least enough research to show the family members in the cemetery. For me, just a name on a piece of paper would be a real disappointment
Note: All photo's are made with a Canon Rebel and edited with Adobe Photoshop. I try to enhance unreadable markers when possible. In these cases the photo is not noted especially for quality, but for information purposes.
Note: Ask for permission to copy any photo.

|Connie Meeks Duffey||hello!|
I found you posted a flower on a page that I was working on the bio for a co-FAGer. Anyway, I read your bio and loved what you said about the folks that hoard memorials and are in it for the numbers.
Do they not know that they will always have the record of the ones they create??? I have many classmaes and friends memorials I am adding bios for with photos and am always so appreciative when someone transfers without following specific Find A Grave guidelines. It leaves a story for the future.
Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say hello.
I too am a volunteer photographer.
Have a great today and tomorrow.
I love the information you posted with your Bio....so true!
I am writing to ask your permission to use your headstone photo (citing credit to you for the photo) of my brother-in-law's relative Clarence J. Bingham # 68377153. I would like to use it in my ancestry.com family tree.

|Chryse Wayman||RE: Sarah Hobbs Thomasson Memorial|
Hi Gina, I used the edit tool already. Since it didn't come across the first time I just did it again. The fifth photo does not belong in this memorial.
|Chryse Wayman||Sarah Hobbs Thomasson Memorial|
I'm reasearching my Thomason line which includes Garrison and Sarah Hobbs Thomasson. Thank you for adding photos to Sarah Hobb Thomason's Memorial! The last photo displayed is of Sarah Spruill's marker. Do these two Sarahs share a marker? I didn't find a Memorial for Sarah Spruill in this cemetery.
Thanks in advance Gina for your help on this and all the other photos you have taken. We appreciate it.

I'm asking for permission to use a photo you posted to add to the wife's memorial. They share a double headstone and I would like to add it to his spouse. Please reply if its okay to use it.
|Jwoods||County Line Cemetery on Pine Mountain|
I am seeking information on anyone buried in the county line cemetery on Pine Mountain. My Dad was buried there in 2012. That was the first dated burial there since 1939. We are in the process of cleaning the cemetery as well as putting up a fence. I noticed you have relatives buried here. Do you know which grave or graves they are in? Do you have dates of birth and/or death. I would love to get any info have concerning anyone buried at this cemetery. Please email back if you have any info you would like to share. The cemetery is located on our property so we are very interested in finding our what we can. Or is you know of anyone else that would have info. We would love to meet you there sometime. Thanks for your time. Jean Woods

Thank you so much! I appreciate your generosity.
|Gyp Haynie||James A Weir #66187354|
I am making a book on Ancestry.com, and would like your permission to use the photo of James A Weir's gravestone. He is my sister-in-law's great great grandfather. My name is Gyp Haynie, member #47818359. Thanks so much. If I were younger and could get around better, I would LOVE to be able to take pictures for Find A Grave, so I do appreciate folks like you who CAN do it
