I visited Find-A-Grave for years filling in blanks on my family tree. After retirement I decided to become a contributor too (2010) here in central Oklahoma. I took all the small cemeteries in Canadian County and some in Kingfisher County. Now that there are so many volunteers with cell phones, I have given up.|
Now I am working in conjunction with my cousins in Indiana and Green County Kentucky to add memorials and photographs to the thousands of old cemeteries there.
I have also done genealogy research for several of my friends and I have added their families memorials as I found them too. Find-a-Grave is the only place I have my research listed online. I try to link families together as I go. (2015)
If anyone has complaints about data on my memorials try asking NICELY first without the venom - you catch more flies with honey than you do vinegar - as Mama used to say.

A FEW TIPS FOR TAKING GOOD TOMBSTONE PICTURES:
1. Take a photo of the entire tombstone first, then get a close-up of the name if it is hard to read on the whole view. Try to fill the frame with the stone and not the surrounding countryside, homes, cars, etc.
2. Look for your reflection or shadow in the tombstone BEFORE you take the picture! Stand to the side to prevent reflection.
3. Squat in order to get on the same level as the tombstone - don't stand and shoot down at a sharp angle.
4. If the stone is vertical, take the picture vertically - it will display on the memorial much larger than horizontally. PLEASE DO NOT put the picture up sideways!!! This is very disrespectful!! If you don't know how to turn it, ask me and I will try to help.
We are trying to preserve history so we want the very best pictures possible - it may be all that survives!
** My photos may be used for any nonprofit purpose - ONLY IF - you give credit by listing your source so others can find it. Noting the source INCLUDES the photographer's name, and the Find-a-Grave memorial number or website.**

|Joyce K. Brame||RE: Zion Cem|
It is the same cemetery. The grass is being cut and some headstone have been uncovered. I was born in this area and go back there about every year. I have family that is in the cemetery. I have entered the Sections and Rows and they are in (21) pending. Are you tell me after 21 days thing in the pending will automatic update Find a Grave. How is it something are automatic updated but other things are not?
|Joyce K. Brame||RE: Zion Community Cem|
The Cemetery has a Section A & B Section Row Numbers now, please look at Kenneth Anderson which show a better picture of the A & B. Can you replace the Zion Cemetery sign with the one that show the A & B. I have pending information with the Sections and Row Numbers. Is there any way to get pending information approve?
