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: Pomeroy Randolph
Hi, Yes, I have that Myrtle was the wife of Pomeroy Harned, but I have no other information on her. Uncle Roy, as I knew him, was a brother to my maternal grandmother and lived in the same town. He lived with the widow of another brother for years and it wasn't until I started doing genealogy that I realized he had ever been married or had a child. I never met Ben. I've always assumed that there was a divorce or something that separated them. I've only found one census where they are together. If you have more information, I would love to have it.

Cheers, Nancy

P.S. If you want to reach me privately, you can do so at nguziec@tx.rr.com.

Hi :) It IS confusing how they name the cemeteries, isn't it? I have added photos to your memorials and deleted mine--you can correct the location now. Thanks and take care. Kathy

RE: Edits
I am a direct White descendant of Peregrine White. There are trees on ancestry.com that say that he had a son named after him. I am asking for no major change. I don't see what the problem is with this. You can check other trees on ancestry. You can check census data to verify it also. donna

RE: james
You are very welcome. Sometimes I revisit a memorial of my own and catch a typo, so I knew you would want those pointed out.

Hope you aren't getting too much snow there! I was up shoveling this morning at 5:30 a.m. Summer can't get here fast enough!

Hi cataholic4ever, Thank you for responding so quickly to my request for a photo of Jeremiah's headstone. May I have your permission to use it in my genealogy records? (Giving you full credit for taking the photo) God bless you for all that you do on Find A Grave. Margaret

George METS
Good Evening,

Please email me when you have time.

I might have found more details on George Mets, 1906, Union Star Cemetery in Sioux County, NE.

I have copies of the newspaper article also if you would like.
