I so enjoy getting to walk around cemeteries and take pictures of grave markers. I also love that FAG exists and gives everyone a place to "remember" their loved ones. With that said, I recently found that a FAG contributor requested moving flowers (or images) not be posted to "her" memorials because "I think you would agree that your gesture is about respect for the dead, and not a competition of who can find the most distracting jpeg." I am quite disgusted by that comment. As far as I am concerned, even if I did create a memorial, it is not "my" memorial. A family member or friend should be able to leave any tribute they see fit on their loved ones memorial, as I am not to judge what is appropriate for someone else.
REMEMBER: Find A Grave is a wonderful place to find family and friends who have left us and every memorial we contribute adds more value (and love) to the site. Refusing to transfer a memorial to a family member is just plain rude and selfish; not to mention against FAG's policies for a direct line family member. If you don't want to "play" by the rules, leave.
With the exception of my own personal family photos, photos I post can be used by others for their personal, private and/or non-commercial use.

Adams and Shofner Hello I am a 4th cousin of Frank Perry Adams I was able to verify via his obituary today ! Yea!! Years of research. His wife Minnie Adams was the informant on the death certificate and did not know the corect information on is parents. His Father was John Adamski and his Mother Frances Kordylas Adamski was possibly his mother or step mother. The siblings mentioned in the obit are both full and half siblings. I am working on verifying it all and long to link them all correctly! Frances married John N Shofner I have requested his obituary to verify where he is buried. Not sure if he is with Frances? at Oak Grove?
Willie Thompson THANK YOU! IT's only 5 in California, but I already called my dad and gave him the news. He extends his thanks to you for the memorial you created for his brother. Had you not done so we may never have found him. Thank you for the transfer. Carmen
Robert Myers #47543803 Are you related to the above person? I am attempting to find my father (Oscar A Myers) and I believe this may be his brother. Any information that you may have is greatly appreciated. Thank you for all of your hard work. Nancy
Winnie and Ed Brown - Redland Cemetery Hello, I am the granddaughter of Winnie and Ed Brown. My father, Johnny Brown, would like it if I could take over their memorials (106393346 Winnie Bell Brown and 106393363 Edward Floyd Brown) Thank you so much for starting them. This is such an important tool and I've just recently become a photo volunteer. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Sincerely, Melissa
deletion of Myrtle Price Thank for letting me know I had a duplicate. I didn't have her surname correct since she remarried. I have deleted mine and hopefully the other person will add what I asked of her.
