I am taking a personal hiatus from Findagrave volunteer and other genealogical activities. If you find an error on one of my memorials that you would like changed, please be patient.
If you have other information, copyrighted obituaries, requests for links, etc, please exercise discernment, patience and self restraint: hold on to them if you can until August, and send me a personal email to email@example.com at that time and I will be happy to either complete the action or transfer your family member to you so that you may manage their memorial if he/she is unrelated to me. Please try not to pile onto the Findagrave Admins, who are veritable saints and have plenty to do without substituting for the rest of us who are working toward life-work balances.
Finally and quite importantly, if you would like permission to use one of my photos on another website or in a public family tree, please email requesting written permission. Permission is generally granted, but those individuals simply lifting my photographs and posted them to ancestry trees without so much as the courtesy of acknowledging where they themselves found the images are destroying source information that is important to genealogical research and imperative for connecting family members with each other. Please be mindful of the intellectual property of others in the race back in time to prove Adam and Eve as your ancestors!
I will return in late August and tend to all corrections that cannot be managed by the new (and fabulous!) automated system.
