Bio and Links
Bio Photo I very much appreciate photos being added to the memorials I create, however, I ask that when photos are added to memorials that I own, please be sure it is a quality photo showing the entire marker, and that the photo is not sideways or upside down. I take great care to take nice photos for the memorials owned by others, going as far as to edit them on photoshop to ensure they look the best they can. I would appreciate the same care for photos added to memorials I own. So if I see a photo that is sideways, I will edit it to be rotated correctly and then repost it.

You may use photos I have taken of grave markers, but please note credit with " BJShields Find-A-Grave Member #47495665".

I appreciate any information anyone wants to share that can be added to any of the memorials I've posted. I don't mind transferring ownership if the memorial is not one of my own relatives.

If you would like to use a personal photo of a person, please check with me first (unless it is a photo I included from an obituary, which I note in the caption of the photo).

If there is a photo or any information that family members would rather not be included on a memorial, please don't hesitate to let me know and I will be happy to delete it.

If you happen to notice I've entered a duplicate of another memorial, don't get upset, just let me know and I'll be happy to delete it. I make every effort to ensure that I don't create duplicates.

You posted a memorial for him #112977687 and show a son Thomas 1670/1671 to 1739.
I am showing the father to be Nicholas Bartlett 1642-1690 married to Lucy Latimer.

Hi BJ,

Can you tell me where you got the information this person is buried in Woodlawn?

Just curious because my maiden name is Kreeger and I have family buried in this cemetery but I do not know this person!

Naming Conventions
The FAQs have been updated for entering middle initials. Please see the "Memorial Naming Conventions." It says:

"A period should be used after names where only an initial is known."

Just thought you should know this. I submitted a correction to add a maiden name to a memorial being managed by the Admins and they declined it because I didn't add a period in the middle name field which was only a middle initial. Their note on the declined edit was:

"Note: Punctuation needed (a period after the initial)"

Just trying to help spread the word! :)
