Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hope you all enjoy the memorials I've created and if any of these people are related to you, please don't hesitate to ask me to transfer them to you. I've also provided links wherever possible to spouses and/or other family members.

Regarding photos -- Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo. See FindAGrave FAQs for more information.

...I only ask that you give me credit for my work. This statement applies to using my photos on OTHER websites -- not FindAgrave. You cannot copy my photos to put on a duplicated memorial on FindAGrave. Apparently, this needs to be specified because some people try to find loopholes everywhere. Courtesy and common sense should guide you but if you aren't sure, you can ask me.

If you want to attach a memorial to your family tree on Ancestry, FindAGrave is listed as a source under the birth, marriage, death section. You may have to look for it, but if it's on this website, then within a short time after adding it, it will be on Ancestry, too. If you must put the photo on your tree, please add, "Photo compliments of VickiO of FindAGrave", with a link to this page.

RE: Birth of Domenico Marcalus - 46469954
They are both one in the same! yes. I just sent you an email with another copy of his birth record from Petralia Sottana - I am just not sure where to look or go to --- to find name changes in the state of NJ. Thanx again for all the work you do, not only for me, but all others that you help. Jack in Florida

Birth of Domenico Marcalus - 46469954
Hi Vicki,

I am a distant cousin of Domenico Macaluso - who ultimately changed his name to Marcalus.

I've attached a link to his Birth record, in Petralia Sottana on 6 SEP 1893.,248143002

The record number of his birth is 288 and is the document in the lower right hand corner of the Italian birth page.

This link shows his parents as Matteo and Concetta Bellina Macaluso. Yes, the top of the document shows the recorded date as 9 SEP but when you look at actual date - his birthday is 6 SEP 1893.

Will appreciate it if you can update his record. Jack Cipriano, in

request of transfer
Hi Vicki,

Sorry about the emails over the weekend. I would like to request the tranfer of, Mary Covello # 46610210 & her husband, Michael Covello, # 46610217.

Mary Covello is a Smeriglio & I might want to do a Bio.

Your consideration is appreciated as always,

Thank you for all of the really detailed work you have put into these photos for the memorials! The notations are also of real value.

It is to bad the markers have degraded but it is wonderful to have captured these photos before they are are in worse shape.

Your efforts are truly appreciated!

RE: Copying your photo's
Thank's Vicki,

You have been very kind to me & just wanted to return something in your favor. This is why less people want to do this anymore.

I was told to read the fine print !! I did, and it's very understandable if you read properly.

Thanks Again for past tranfers.

Copying your photo's
Hi Vicki,

It's been awhile since you gave me tranfers of Smeriglio Family. I hope all is going well.

I am having problems with Ancestry members using your photo's of Smeriglio & stating they orignally submitted!!, & putting on public tree's.

I am trying to back you up on this & hope I'm right by stating to them, it is a copyright infringement to F.A.G. & You.

I'm not usually this way, but don't like other people taking credit from someone else. Am I wrong ??

Please advise.

Thanks, Pat 47476000

RE: Mary Ann Caton
Thank you for the information. Perhaps a photo of the 'clearly marked family plot' for the other memorial pages with at special notation stating what you make note of here would be appropriate..? What do you think?

Thank you so very much for all you have done here!
