I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

Hi,

I received your suggested edits (dates of birth and death/maiden name) for the memorial above. Would you please provide the source(s) of your information?

Thank you for keeping Find A Grave an accurate and valuable genealogical tool!

Laura

PS: If you are related to Anna, please let me know how. I would be happy to transfer her memorial to a family member.

Sven and Ellen Magnuson follow up
Sven Magnuson, Memorial# 133277669
Hi, In 2014 you photographed Ellenís memorial #133277663. In 2016 a new photo was posted to the memorials for Sven and Ellen. I was surprised to see Svenís name on the stone in what looks like a stencil. He is my grandfather and I know heís buried there, however the stone was never engraved. Do you have any information on the stenciling if thatís what it is? Thank you.

I forgot to add that contributor Melissa Toddy took the photo with the apparent stencil. In her bio she describes going through serious medical issues so I did not contact her.

Edmund L. Warren
A few days ago, I wrote to Nate Bramlett telling him that his memorial for Edmond L. Warren
# 24192529 (created 2008) had been duplicated by you # 53711445 (in 2010), presumably because he had spelled the name with an "o" rather than a "u," which is how I also spelled it because that's how it appear in the Connecticut Hale Cemetery Inscriptions.

I asked him to work with you, either to delete the duplication or to have the memorials merged so that I could make some links. Instead, without a word, he transferred his memorial to me.

So, will you please delete the duplicate?

Thank you very much,

Janet Muff

Thank you!
Mr. Greer,
Thank you for all of the outstanding work you do. You have contributed several grave pictures for my family members in the greater Hartford area. You do a fine job with the pictures.

Thx Dave D'Arche

Harrison Judd #43183299
I read old newspapers at the Library of Congress website every day. Today, I ran across a little obituary for Harrison Judd that I thought you might find interesting, as it gives his age at time of death as 96. I am attaching a link, so you can review the little note in the Bridgeport Evening Farmer (Bridgeport, CT) of 12/6/1916.
