|Bio and Links|
For complete website rules and frequently asked questions – with answers – click on the "Help with Find A Grave" link on the left column. Also, various brief website procedures are listed in the contributor profiles on many of the links under "Find A Grave Friends" at the lower right; for example, here and here. Before adding a memorial, make sure it is not already on Find A Grave. Please note that an individual's right to privacy disappears when they are deceased.
I am not an administrator of this website; other than editing memorials that I manage, I cannot resolve issues that you are experiencing (e.g., membership, missing photos, incorrect cemetery names). I am not associated with any cemetery, and have no further information on cemeteries beyond what is already shown online. Additionally, I have no further information on individuals beyond what is already shown online.
Abbreviated website rules concerning photographs: The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for Find A Grave, any other website, or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter. Do NOT copy my photos and use them on memorials on this website (you are attributing the photos as your own when you use them). Contact me using the 'Edit' tab on any memorial that I manage and I will upload the photo to the memorial that you specify. I will allow my cemetery and grave photos to be used elsewhere for your personal use and informational purposes with this (Click on any photo to get a larger view, and to see possible captions – such as the location of the grave.) Keep in mind that most Find A Grave volunteers contribute their time (and fuel) towards improving THIS website – not to provide free labor for another website. Out of common courtesy, give credit for photos that you use; giving credit is not too much to ask for the effort put in. Again, source me as the photographer and Find A Grave as the original location.
In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, I am no longer transfering outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. I likely have had transfer requests from relatives closer than you for the same memorials that you want to have transferred. Requests that are outside of the guidelines (such as aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.), or do not state relationship, will be ignored. Find A Grave's mission is to document cemeteries, "...the goal is not to 'own' every memorial of those to whom you are related." This website can be useful to genealogists, but it's about accurately recording graves, not building family trees. Per policy, I will competently link and add your accurate information to a memorial upon your request. (I can only link to spouses and parents). Again, because of the quantity of messages that I receive, transfer requests that do not follow the transfer procedure will be deleted without a response/explanation.
"Copying and posting photos originally taken by another photographer is a copyright violation and is strictly against Find a Grave policy...
Any photo that was not taken (photographed) or owned by you should never be posted to Find a Grave memorials. This is Find a Grave's copyright policy, not the interpretation by someone else of how the policy should work...
Consider any photo that you did not personally take (with your camera) as copyrighted, as far as Find a Grave is concerned. The copyright notice is displayed every time you or any other member uploads a photo...
...we will unfortunately have to terminate your account. Find a Grave copyright policy is not an arguable point."
"Photograph the grave/gravesite 'in-situ', or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's 'good deed' just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos... but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site."

|Grave_Walker||RE: Your FAG name|
Thanks, seemed to be the name to choose since I enjoy grave walking and taking many photos in cemeteries to post at Find A Grave.
Like your license plate photo as well..!

|Robert Kuhmann||Spring Grove, Delavan, Walworth Co., WI.|
Thanks for the photo uploads to various memorials which I've been "researching" in "Spring Grove", Delavan, Walworth Co., WI. My son, his mom and maternal grandma are RELATED to a large number of the folks buried there, or collaterally so...
Albeit I live almost next door to that cemetery, I've been spending most of my time compiling BIO's and effecting LINKS etc.
As always, THANK YOU for your wonderful contributions to Find-A-Grave!

|Sally Scheer||RE: Jane Selden stone photo|
Thank you for your generosity. It may be a long time before I get out there to get my own pictures and using yours, and giving you a credit, will do very well.
|Sally Scheer||Jane Selden stone photo|
May I have your permission to use the photo of Jane A Selden's gravestone on my Ancestry tree entry for her?
|Sally Scheer||Jane Seldon|
Thanks so much for the transfer. She means a great deal to me. Thought you might be interested in a sort of "back story" for her life. When she was a young mother of 2 year old William Fayette Potter, her husband John Melvin Potter left for the Gold Rush with his brother Dewitt and brother-in-law Benedict Woodward (also a father of a 2 year old son). As children, my sisters and I learned to chant the many last names she had throughout her life: Jane Ann Rector Potter Canfield Curtis Selden. We were somewhat in awe of a woman who had so many husbands, not knowing anything of the story behind that. Yes, we had letters John had written home to her and the family during the trip to California thru the Isthmus of Panama, but WHY DID HE LEAVE HER IN THE FIST PLACE??? Was she a grasping witchy woman? Did she demand more from him than he had to give?
One of the most important questions I wanted to answer was what happened? John never returned. I knew from the letters that Ben had died on the trip. I kept imagining scenarios where John had founded another family on the West Coast,
Ebter FindAGrave.com and Ancestry and my curiosity was finally satisfied.
NO, Jane Ann was NOT a grasping woman. She was the daughter of a preacher, one of the younger members of the Rector family in New York. She was a beautiful woman. Yes, she had many husbands, but there was nothing much else a widow with a child could do but harry another man or perhaps go to live with either her parents (who already had lots of children to care for) or in-laws (who were also taking care of their own widowed daughter and son. She never married for love again as far as I can see. She married men who were older or needed a mother for their child or children after their own spouse had died. She never had another child. William F Potter took care of her in the last few years of her life and periodically earlier,
Ben contracted Panama fever during the crossing of the Isthmus and died at sea. John contracted Panama Fever either crossing the Isthmus or tending Ben. He did make it to the Gold Fields, but her died within less than a month of his arrival. His wife and parents did not know for about 2 years whether he and his brother Dewitt were alive or dead.
This is long and you can ignore it if it's intrusive on your time, but I thought you might be interested.
