Wonder why some people are unwilling to transfer memorials when requested.
Hate when some Find A Grave Members post new memorials just to get the numbers.
You must ask to copy photos for use on another website per rules of find a grave.
THESE PHOTOS ARE COPY RIGHT BY THE PERSON THAT POST THEM!!!!!!!! PLEASE ASK TO USE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
I don't appreciate people that request memorials and then delete them and recreate them and use my photos. This happened to my husband too.
A note I think Angie Robinson has taken my photos and crop them to make them to look different. I have taken those photos because she requested them. Can't remember where she lives but not in Illinois or Wisconsin unless she moved since I took the photos for her. She has sent me thanks but no mention of who she requested.
There are a few that make memorials before the obit hits the paper how is this so?
Thank you

Gosh, I do agree with all you stated about the stealing by other people. What I do is place my initials in a small unseen place on the picture before I post it. It works for iding it as yours.
Hope that helps you

RE: John W Brand #97436090
Please REMOVE both photos that you posted to John W Brand's memorial, as the stones do NOT belong with him, but with John H Brand, where they are already attached.

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" that had roots/ties to Vermont. May I use the photo that you contributed to the Find A Grave Memorial page for George Walker, to post on the Vt. C.W. site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)

You will receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration.
