I have noticed a couple of bad problems with Findagrave... there are far too many duplicate memorials; and, duplicate or incorrectly named cemeteries, although we all make mistakes, and I have been guilty of duplicating a few myself! Most cemetery naming mistakes are made by individuals that don't live in the State and or County in which the burial takes place.

Please check thoroughly to see if there is already a memorial created for someone, before creating a new one, and don't create a cemetery unless your are familiar with the cemeteries in the area of burial! It only takes a short time!

Thank you!

I have been a genealogist and historian since about 1980. I also belong to various Historical Societies.

I have taken between 15,0000 and 20,000 photos of tombstones, primarily in Floyd County, Kentucky. I took the photos between 1999 and 2003, before I knew Findagrave existed. I am now posting memorials using the photos or adding them to memorials already being managed by others.

Please email me with any correspondence.

Any photos that have been posted by me that are not credited to someone else, may be used for personal purposes only, as long as you give me the credit. Please contact me if you'd like because we may be related!

Please use the edit tab to contact me concerning any edits you need me to perform on memorials that I manage or for transfers. I typically transfer memorials if I'm not related. If you don't intend to make edits to memorials you ask transfer of then don't ask... I believe one should add photos and other documents if available.

Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use. Obituaries for the use of Genealogy and Historical Research are covered under this act. An obituary is simply a form that recites the facts, it may not reach the unique creation test of copyright law and therefore would not be legally copyrighted but credit should be given to the original creator.
