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 loop holes 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.

George Grimshaw
Hi, Vicki-
The date of death for George Grimshaw (find-a-grave #88598038) is actually May 29th, 1890, not 1889. I know that the New Jersey Deaths and Burial Index in has a George listed for 1879, but that was the grandson of the George in your record. I know because I went to the NJ state archives and couldn't find a death certificate for the 78 year old George from Macclesfield, but I did find one for a 21 day old George. I finally found obituaries for your George in two newspapers in 1890.

I have a feeling that Cindy who contributed to this record was looking at the Ancestry info.

Photo Requests
Vicki, I keep my own record of my grave requests. That way I know which ones have been taken. Don't know why they changed their procedure. I do get notifications but it is alot longer than previously.
