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.

Hi BJ,

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

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=120685228

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! :)
