Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,

Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

I'm just about done with the cemetery now. :D


FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials


Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?


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.



FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.

ALSO

"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."

---------
Do NOT steal photos from findagrave to use in your family trees on Ancestry.com or for that matter MYHERITAGE.com either.


Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials.

Thank you.

RE: Charles and Rachel Morgan
It was a duplicate memorial, guidelines state the first memorial in the correct cemetery is the one that will remain. You created the memorial without a location, but under the guidelines you have a limited time to enter the correct location, the idea is not to leave them hanging there forever, while someone transcribing part of a cemetery enters it in the correct place. At the point when you changed the burial location, instead of deleting your memorial, you created a duplicate. I told Findagrave if your memorial was in this cemetery when I created mine and I created the duplicate, they could delete mine. There is no hostility, I willing transfer people who are not relatives, but I am not going to transfer someone I think is in my tree. I do not know how long it will take, I work on parts of my tree almost every day. Until I can work out the details of this branch, if there is anything you would like to add to these memorials, I will gladly add it and credit you.

Charles and Rachel Morgan
I added these memorials because I have Morgans in my tree who lived in this area. I am going to refuse to transfer them at this time, however I will retain your request, and if I can determine these are not relations, I will transfer them to you sometime in the future. I had the memorials merged because, despite your lengthy instructions on your page cautioning others not to create duplicate memorials, you ignored these instructions and created duplicates.

David Ardrey Marker
Thank you for adding the photo of the David Ardrey marker in Altoona. I built that virtual memorial for his wife. Both are/were friends of mine. The reason I wanted the photo of the marker with the musical notes on it was that David was a musician, and while his wife asked for them on the marker they originally didn't get on there, and the cemetery counselor who she worked with really didn't care.

Thanks for all you do for www.findagrave.com.
