◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a grave registration website.
The owner of Find A Grave has stressed that this is a grave registration site, not a genealogy site.
If you are requesting that an obituary be posted, please provide the name of the newspaper and date of publication.
If you wonder why I stick so closely to Find A Grave guidelines, please note that many of us not only receive many requests every day but many of them are not very nice... so, I only transfer within the guidelines.
Having someone in your "family tree" is not grounds for a transfer. If you have additional information on an individual which you wish to add, I am more than willing to make those additions, and to even give you credit.
When transfers are requested by more than one individual, I simply cannot determine who should receive the memorial and refuse to get involved. Nasty notes are simply deleted and not even considered.
Please, please, please DO NOT ADD COPIES OF DEATH CERTIFICATES to my memorials. Just think how you would feel if your death certificate was made public. I do add information obtained from death certificates to memorials, just not the death certificate itself.
And, please, please, please do not add a duplicate photograph; ie the same headstone photo There is really no need for five photos of the same headstone :)
I do give permission for my photos to be used for personal use; but not for money-making endeavors. Nice if credit is given but not really necessary. However, I would prefer that photos not be altered from their original state. :)
